[00:00] What’s up guys? Are you looking for a full glass windshield with built-in vents as well as a wiper? Well, SuperATV has you covered with our full glass windshield. Today we’re going to show you how to install it on this Polaris General XP.
[00:41] The first thing you’re gonna do is remove all the contents out of your packaging. As you can see, we have already done that. We have all of our seals laid out (everything that we need to get our windshield assembled). The first seal your gonna grab is the U-Seal. It’s going to look different from the rest of the seals. Your U-Seal is going to go on the bottom portion of the glass windshield all the way across the lower.
[01:05] So we’re going to go straight up from where we applied our U-seal. We’re going to grab our bulb seal and apply it across this surface all the way across to here, and cut off the excess. Then, once we get to the edge on this lower portion, come in with a pair of side cuts and cut off the excess. You will want to make sure that it is fully seated. Repeat the same steps again. We’re going to start right here on this edge and run a piece of seal to this edge. Next, we’ll take a separate piece of seal and run it all the way across to this edge. We will have one last piece that runs through here.
[01:50] Next, we’re going to grab our vents out of the kit. We’re going to lay them onto the studs on the windshield. You can set them to the open or the closed position—we’re going to close ours. Then, we’re going to get our thumb screws out of the kit. These screws will thread directly onto the studs that are protruding through the inside of the glass windshield. We will do this on both sides. As I mentioned before, you can open the vents or you can close them. You can easily change this setting once the vents are in the machine.
[02:35] When you get your vents installed, you will need to grab your wiper so we can install it to the machine. As you apply the small hardware, you’re going to want to make sure that you have your flat washer up against your nut, followed by your rubber washer. Drop your small hardware through the hole in the windshield. Then, place your rubber washer on the bottom against the frame, followed by your flat washer. We’re just going to crank these down by hand. Next, we will grab a 17 mm socket and a 17 mm wrench and snug them up. Grab your wiper arm, and you’ll see there is a plastic cap—remove it.
We’ll take the handle and slide it through so the wiper arm is on the handle. Take the 10 mm nut and start threading it as you grab the 10 mm ratchet and snug it up. You will want to be careful here as you don’t want to over tighten them. Then, we’ll take our wiper (go ahead and flip this down) and slide it on. Slide your windshield off to the side. Once we have our hardware on tight and our wipers installed to the wiper arms, we’re going to take the plastic piece we removed and slide it back on. Finally, we’re ready to install our windshield to our machine.
[04:30] First you’re going to want to sit the windshield underneath the lip of the roof on both sides. Next, were going to grab our clamp and slide it onto our cage. Loosen your hardware so you can move it around with ease. Then, you will take your bracket and line the holes up. Place your M6 fasteners, a sealing washer, and a nyloc lock nut in the hole that isn’t aligned.
Next, we will take our screw with our sealing washer and check to make sure it is touching the frame. Slide your screw through using one of our nyloc nuts and one of the brackets. Tighten your bracket. Then we’re going to take our clamp and slide it into position using one of these allen head screws. Take your nyloc washer, flat washer, bracket, and clamp—once they’re in line, we can start our hardware. We’re gong to repeat the same exact steps for the rest of the clamp.
Remember, these are still loose—before we tighten them, you really want to pull the windshield in tight and fasten this clamp. We’re going to go ahead and repeat the same steps on the opposite side. We’re going to get everything mocked up and ready to go, followed by tightening our hardware.
As you tighten the clamps, you will want to make sure you tighten them evenly so the clamp can pull together well. If the clamps starts to pull down, we will go back to adjusting the screw—that way it pulls together nicely. Now, we’re going to tighten the hardware that secures the bracket to the clamp. Before securing the bracket to the clamp, we’ll pull on our windshield to make sure it’s fully seated against the cage of the machine.
