I really pulled a bone head move here. When I ordered my lock 'n' ride windshield & was miffed at the fact Polaris wanted another $350 bucks for a wiper kit & decided to not order the windshield with the wiper setup...... Hindsight is still 20/20.


Well, that's why i'm here, to ask you gents what I can do to get a wiper setup on my Ranger 900. Any ideas out there?

I'm sure you are aware of this, Polaris sells the fixed glass windshield w/wo the wiper mount in the windshield, you do not have to purchase the wiper, but with the wiper ready version, you would be ready if you decided to install the wiper.
I would try selling the fixed glass, purchase the Polaris tipout, and purchase the Polaris wiper accessory from Rocky Mountain ATV, they have the cheapest price.

well if you have the windshield that doesnt accept a wiper you either have to buy a new one which is another boat load of money or go to a glass shop and see that they can do( i thought i would never get the wiper but got the windshield that accepts it picked wiper/washer kit up for $150 worth every penny)

Thanks gents, I figured as much. I let pride get in my way & bought the glass windshield w/o the wiper mount. I got caught in a rain storm while riding thru town this summer, I had to pull over at every gas station in town to use the squeegee lol It wasn't very fun.

I use rainex on mine and I haven't had any trouble running in the rain. From misty weather to all out downpour I have been able to see well enough to drive fine at 30 to 40 mph on blacktop roads in the daylight. Now at night would be a whole different problem with headlights coming at you.

Good thinking on the rainex. I have the windshield without wipers, never thought of that.

I didn't think about that either, I'll give that a try.

I made the same mistake on my '14 900XP. I posted on the wanted section and had a nearby forum member that had the windshield I wanted and he wanted my lock and ride. We made a trade and now we are both happy. I too bought the wiper/washer setup from Rocky Mountain and couldn't be happier...good luck!

is your wiper bottle under the hood or the bed?
There may be a few NOS Polaris wiper accessories left (the ones that mount under bed), just about all that are sold today are the ones that mount under the hood.

Newyorker,
If you don't mind me asking, where did you get a wiper kit for $150?

The washer unit that mounts under the hood is a better design.
The unit that mounts under the bed, could melt from the exhaust heat, I do know that the heat will make the foil heat deflector fall off. And depending on how hard and the length that you ride, the washer bottle will get hot and the pressure will force washer fluid to drip onto the windshield, without turning it on.
