[0:00] What’s up guys? Today we’re going to show you how super easy it is to install SuperATV’s Rear Windshield on this Yamaha Wolverine RMAX 1000. Let’s get right to it.
First, remove all of the contents from your packages from SuperATV. Take your windshields—your upper as well as the lower potion—and lay it up on the machine. Make sure that it fits. Ours does, so we’ll go ahead and grab the bulb seal. It’ll be the straight seal that looks just like this.
With the windshield laying like ours is, apply this seal all the way across. Start working it in. Once you get to right here, cut off the excess.
[0:59] We’ve already cut our bulb seals. When you get your bulb seal to this point, cut off the excess and it will look like this.
Run it all the way across, then stop right here on the same portion of the windshield, but on the opposite side.
Now we’ll grab our 90-degree bulb. Again, our pieces are pre-cut. We’ve already had them installed once. You’ll want to install it right here to this corner and then run it all the way to here, before it gets into the corner.
Once you’re there, just cut off the excess and then do the exact same thing on the opposite side. Make sure your seal portion is facing up. Then we’ll get a little piece of bulb seal and that will go right here.
[1:43] This is what your windshield should look like. Make sure all of your seals are on and fully fastened.
Now we’ll grab the brackets out of the kit. Lay it just like this, then grab the M6 hardware as well as M6 Nylocs and some sealing washers. These sealing washers will slide onto the screws and these will slide through the three holes on the windshield.
Start the nut. We’ll come to this one right here and do the same thing.
The next thing we’ll do is, you’ll have two different sets of brackets in your kit. You’ll have C brackets and D brackets. The ones with the arrows will be the D brackets. We’ll take our C brackets and get some of our flat gasket, or seal, from the kit. Just tear off a little piece and apply it onto the C bracket. These will sit just like this on the windshield.
We’ll use the same M6 screws that we used just a moment ago and do the same thing for this hole right here.
[2:58] Then we’ll tighten this bracket. I’m going to get an Allen and put it on the head of the screw. These don’t need to be super tight. As you can see, I’m just running them up until it clicks. That’s all it needs—you don’t need to hammer down on them or anything like that.
I’m just getting them started in the Nyloc—I’m not tightening them at all. There we go, it’s in the Nyloc. It’s not going to back off or anything like that.
[3:33] Now we’ll grab the other portion of the windshield, the lower portion, and lay it next to the upper portion. You’ll have a couple of brackets in your kit. As you can see, the bracket right here has a low spot compared to here.
Obviously, the distance between these two, this side sticks out farther. The side that sticks out farther will go onto the upper portion. We’ll just install one at a time.
[3:57] I’m going to couple it to the upper portion of the windshield and then to the lower portion. Again, make sure you’re using M6 hardware and make sure the seal washer is going up against the bracket.
We’re just going to start all of these right now—we’re not going to fully tighten any of them just yet.
[4:45] So this side is now prepped and ready to go. We’ll do the opposite side—it’ll be the same exact process.
Once we’ve done that, we’ll do the same thing, except we’re gonna couple the lower portion to the upper portion. Just go through and use the same hardware.
Alright, once we’ve started our hardware, we’ll go through and fully tighten everything.
[6:20] Now that our windshield is coupled together and we have our upper brackets on, everything’s ready for us to install the windshield to the machine.
I went ahead and lifted up the bed. It seems to be a little bit easier for me, personally. Then we’ll take the clamps that were previously installed. Pick the rear windshield up enough to where they rotate.
Rotate both sides with the clamps to where they sit up on the roll cage. It should look something like this at this point.
[7:04] Now we’re going to grab one of the clamps from the kit, as well as one of our M6 x 30 screws, or the longer of the screws left in the kit. We’re going to take the clamp and wrap it around the cage. Take the screw and make sure our seal washer is on it.
Slide it through there and take the M6 nut. You just want to get a couple of threads started for the clamp, then you’ll work down to this next one. Do the same thing.
Then we’ll take a Velcro strap provided in the kit and wrap it around the cage. Pull it tight, so it looks just like this. Then we’ll grab another clamp and start it.
[8:30] Do the same thing on this hole. Then grab the heavy-duty Velcro strap and slide it through. Wrap it around the cage and pull it tight. We’ll be focusing right down here, installing these brackets.
What we’re gonna do is get inside and line them up. Slide the screws through and lay the bracket up.
[9:32] Once the bracket is laid up, we’ll start the nut. Then go to the opposite side and do the same thing. Now all you have to do is go through and fully tighten your clamps as well as your brackets.
