[0:00] What’s up, guys? Are you looking for a full glass windshield for your Honda Talon? Well SuperATV has you covered with our Glass Windshield that’s vented and has a built-in wiper. Today we’re going to show you how to install it, so let’s get right to it.
The first thing you’re going to do is lay out your windshield and get it ready to go. Get in your hardware kit and you’ll see that you have two different kinds of bulb seals—you’ll have a straight bulb seal and a 90-degree bulb seal on the bottom here, which is where the vents are going to be.
So this is the lower portion. You’re going to install your straight bulb seal by starting right here on the edge and going all the way across to the opposite side. Cut off any excess.
After that, we’re going to take our 90-degree bulb seal and apply it to the top. Make sure the seal portion is facing inward, or toward the studs on the bottom of the windshield. Apply it starting here at the top and go all the way across, then cut off the excess.
[1:07] Next we’re going to take our foam seal and apply it from each edge of the bulb seal to the outer edge of the windshield on both sides. Once you’ve ran it, cut off your excess.
After that, you can get your vents and your thumb screws. You want to install the vents just like this—there will be a right and a left. Place them to where they line up. You can see here that you can loosen it, tighten it, and loosen it again and it opens up.
Let’s do the same thing over here for this side. Again, just make sure your vents are lined up.
[1:47] Then we’re going to get our clamp out of the hardware kit. Remove the nut and separate the clamp. You’re going to see a grommet—I like to take my screw and do you see that little steel sleeve in there? You want to push that out, and then you’ll have four holes on each corner of the windshield.
Take these grommets and feed them down into the holes. Take your steel sleeve and slide it in. Then, this is just a personal preference, but here is how I like to do it. It makes it much easier on myself. We’ll take our screw from the outside, coming in. Drop it on and then, so it doesn’t fall off, I take my nut and start it on there.
Now we can just slide it on. We’ll wrap this around the roll cage and take our nut off. It makes it so much nicer and easier, especially if you’re doing this yourself.
[2:35] Repeat these steps for the other three holes on the windshield.
Next you’re going to look in your windshield kit and you’ll see a wiper and a wiper handle. Take your 10 mm nut off and then this little piece will slide right off as well. Come to one side of it and remove the nut. Take off your rubber washer, as well as your regular washer.
Slide it up, making sure the rubber is going up against the frame of the windshield. It’ll look just like this.
Then you’ll take your nut and lock these down once it’s set up exactly how you want it.
[3:30] Slide this handle down through and then your wiper is going to sit just like this. Then we’ll take this black cap off the wiper and grab hold of it. Hold it tightly and be careful because there’s a spring on it—it could flip back on you pretty hard and hurt you.
Line it up on the splines. I like to get mine centered, just like this. It looks a little bit nicer and works a bit better, and it puts your handle in a good position. Just line it up how you like it and then tighten this nut.
[4:22] Once you’ve tightened the nut back down, flip your blade down and put your cap back on.
At this point, your windshield should look just like this. It’s fully assembled and ready to go on the machine. We’re just going to grab hold of our windshield and slide it onto the machine.
Make sure your clamps are pulled out to the side on both sides. Now we’re going to reach in here and take our nut off of our top screw. Slide our clamp around and line it up. I like to take my thumb and push this clamp in, that way it doesn’t want to release.
Then you can reach in here nice and easily and start this nut. Then repeat the same steps for the other three clamps.
Make sure to slide the windshield up as high as it can go. That way it’s making good contact with the upper portion of the cage, as well as good contact on the dash.
[5:36] Once we’ve done that, just go through and fully tighten your hardware.
