What’s up guys? Are you looking for a full tinted roof for your Talon X or Talon X 1000 4? Well SuperATV’s got you covered and today we’re going to show you everything you need to do to get this baby installed. So let’s get right to it.
[00:23] First, remove all the contents from you package from SuperATV. Then take the two portions of the roof and lay them on the cage to make sure they fit. After that, grab the foam seal out of the kit. Apply the foam across the front. If you have a mirror installed, you can cut the foam so that you don’t cover the clamp. Run it down both sides, across the center cage bar, and across the rear cage bar.
Next, grab the rear bracket which will look like this. It’ll have a nice sharp bend on it kind of like a Z. Also grab the M8 x 16 allen bolt which is the shorter of the two allens in the kit. If you have a rear windshield installed, remove the hardware hardware out of the bracket. That way, it will line up with the factory hole in the cage.
If you don’t have a rear windshield, take your hardware and slide it through the bracket on the cage and into the bracket. Thread it it and tighten it up just a little bit. Then get the bracketry lined up. Thread the hardware right into the bracket. Leave it a little bit loose.
Grab the middle bracket. It’ll be the shortest and flattest bracket. Get it lined up and start the hardware in it. Run it right up but leave it a little bit loose. We can still wiggle it around a little bit. Next we’ll do the front. It’s the same process. Line up the hardware, run it in, and leave it a little loose.
[03:19] Now remove the protective film from both side of both roof panels. Then set it aside for a second. Remove the film from this piece as well. Now apply the seal to the rear portion of the roof, which will look like this with the bend on the back facing upward. On the sides it’ll coordinate with the front with the side bends.
Now take this seal and apply it all the way across. Make sure you cover the bolt holes and just pop the hardware right through the bolt holes. That way we know that we’re going to get a really good seal that doesn’t leak. Once you get here, just cut off your excess. Now grab the M6 hardware and pop it through on the top side here.
[05:00] We have our two portions of our roof butted up together. We have the front portion on top of the rear with the seal smashed between them. Take the small allen headed hardware with the sealing washer on the head. Once we pop the screw through, take another sealing washer and slide it onto the threads. Then install the nylock nut.
Make sure the sealing washer has the rubber portion up against the lower portion of the roof. Go ahead and thread the nut on the repeat the same steps for the rest of the nine holes on the roof. Then fully tighten them.
Now grab the four grommets in the kit. You have a circular hole in the front and rear portion of the roof. Install the grommets into each of the four holes. Tuck them in the hole and pick it through from the other side.
[06:25] Now it’s time to get it slid onto the cage. Slide it into position. Grab the longer M8 allen headed hardware, a rubber washer, and two M8 flat washers. Slide the rubber washer and slide it onto the frame here. Sit it right over the hole and lay a flat washer right on top. Then take the M8 hardware, install the flat washer, and slide it through the grommet. Get it lined up with the hole in the frame then just get it started. Then do the same thing on the opposite side.
Next, take the longer M8 hardware and two M8 flat washers. On washer is going to be up against the head of the bolt. The other one is going to be on the frame. Get it started then head over to the opposite side and do the same thing.
In front we’ll use our M8x25 allen. That’s the longer allen. Use the M8 sealing washer and make sure the rubber portion is going down towards the roof. We’ll just get this threaded right in. Use the same hardware on the opposite side. In the center, use the short allen headed hardware. Just make sure the bracket is lined up. That’s why we left all the hardware loose. Line it up and run it it. Just make sure you have your sealing washer on.
For the rearmost one, use the same hardware that we used here and here. Once we have this started, just go through and fully tighten all of the hardware, and there you have it.
