What’s up guys? Today, we’re going to show you how super quick and easy it is to install SuperATV’s Flip Windshield on the CFMOTO ZForce 950.
[00:34] First, you want to get everything out of the box and unpackaged. Then lay it up on the cage of your ZForce 950 to make sure that everything’s going to fit. Now, you can remove the protective film. We’ve already done this.
[00:47] We’ve already installed our gasket through here. On the lip of the lower windshield, you’ll run one gasket strip here, as well as one strip here. It’s nice and easy. Cut off your excess.
In the kit, you have a straight seal. Take that straight seal and apply it to the straight portion of the lower windshield. Once the seal is all the way across, take a pair of side cuts (or whatever you want to use) to cut the excess off.
[01:22] In the kit, you’ll have a right bracket and a left bracket.
We’ll take our right-side bracket and go to the passenger side (right side) of the machine. You’ll have two Allen-headed screws holding this bracket together. Go ahead and remove them, so we can attach the bracket to the cage. We already pre-loosened ours.
[01:48] We’ll rotate it like this and get both of our screws barely started. We don’t want to fully tighten our hardware yet. I’m going to get a couple of threads in, so it’ll rotate around. We want to rotate it like this. For now, let it lay here because we’ll have to move it around later.
We’ll repeat the same steps on the driver’s side (left side). Again, just a couple of threads. I’m going to let it sit like that.
[02:41] We’ll grab our lower windshield and lay it up here. As you can see, you’ll have two threaded holes on your clamp and two holes up here that’ll line up on the bracket.
We’ll start getting these holes lined up. In the kit, you’ll have a lot of hardware. It’ll be your Allen-headed hardware, a bunch of seal washers, and a couple of Nyloc nuts. Make sure the seal portion of the seal washer is facing away from the head. It’ll look like this.
[03:17] We’ll take our Allen-headed screws and start to get everything lined up. Get your hardware started loosely. Keep bouncing the screw back and forth until it’s all centered and looking great. The hardware is started there and it may need to be rotated, which is fine.
Let’s get our hardware started on this side as well. We’ll grab the Allen-headed hardware. There should be four more that are short Allens. Slide them through the windshield and make sure the sealing washer is against the polycarbonate material. Then start your Nyloc nut on the bottom.
[03:58] We’ll do this for both sides on all four holes. Once we feel confident that everything’s lined up, we’ll go through and start tightening up all of our hardware.
With these lower clamps, we’ll have to go through by hand—you can’t get a tool in there. Tighten these with an Allen. I like to use an Allen wrench. If you have a short enough Allen socket, you may be able to get it in there on a ratchet.
We’ll go through and fully tighten all four of our screws between our two clamps.
[04:48] Now, we’ll grab our catch, catch support, and our short Allen hardware (included with your catch and support). I like to take my hardware and slide it through like this so the threads are sticking out of the bottom.
We’ll come to the machine and line up our hardware and the catch support. Get the hardware started on both sides and don’t fully tighten them yet. We need to make sure it’s adjusted properly to our handle—leave it loose.
[05:34] We have two longer Allen-headed screws. You want to make sure that you put the sealed washer on them. We’ll grab two Nyloc nuts. Then, we’ll take our windshield and get it laid up onto the machine.
You want to open up your clamps here and get the windshield laid onto the cage. Obviously if you have a roof on your ZForce 950, you would want to remove it.
[06:17] Then, you’ll drop your hardware straight through the hole on the frame. You will take your Nyloc nut, go on the bottom side, and get it started. We’ll repeat the same step for the opposite side. Then we’ll get our hardware started for our clamps.
[07:01] Now, we’ll take our handle and support. Lay the handle right inside and slide a screw through the support. Do it for the other side of the support. Drop the screw through. We’ll lay it there and line it up with our hardware.
I like to get my catch attached to the handle. Then, you’ll get everything to where it looks like it’ll seal up nicely. I’ll come in and fully tighten my hardware for my catch and handle. On the catch, we’ll be all the way forward as we can be. So, we’ll unhook it off the handle.
[07:56] Once it’s unhooked, we have our gas struts. Flip the windshield all the way open until our strut lines up with the hole and drop the strut through. Reach up through here and start your nuts (provided in the kit).
Do the same for the opposite side.
[08:32] Then we’ll fully tighten our gas strut hardware. Once that’s done, we’ll slide our catch all the way forward because that’s where it looked like it would latch the best.
Once everything is lined up how you want and fitting well, fully tighten all the hardware you haven’t done yet.
And there you have it. That’s all there is to install SuperATV’s Flip Windshield on the CFMOTO ZForce 950. For more information on this windshield or any of SuperATV’s great products, feel free to give us a call or check us out online. Thanks for watching, and we’ll catch you next time.
