What’s up, guys? Today we will install our SuperATV Rear Vented Windshield on this Honda Talon 1000 R in four easy steps. Let’s get right to it.
You’ll first want to take your rear windshield, lay it on your machine, and confirm that it fits. We’ve already done this. We’re going to go ahead and remove our protective film.
Now we’re going to take our bulb seal and install it with the bulb portion of the seal facing up. If you’re on the inside of the rear windshield—one way to tell that you’re on the inside of the rear windshield is your vent will say push to open. You want this to be facing up on your table when you’re installing the bulb seal.
We will start on this edge, run around the windshield, and end it on this edge.
Now we’ll grab our lower bracket—you’ll have two of them. They’ll be identical in design. Then we’re going to grab our allens-headed hardware out of the kit. Then we’ll install the ceiling washer and ensure the seal portion is facing away from the head.
We will grab our bracket, take our hardware, and slide it through the hole in the windshield. Then you will need to take a nylock nut from the kit, start the hardware, and do that for both holes. And you’ll repeat the same steps for the opposite side.
Now we’re going to take our top bracket—it’s going to lay just like this on the rear windshield with our hardware coming from the outside to inside. This is the same hardware that we previously used on our other bracketry.
It should look just like this.
Once your brackets are installed loosely, it’s time to install the windshield to the machine.
Grab your windshield, come to the side, and slide it through.
You may have to go back and forth and work each side evenly. Our lower bracket that we previously to the windshield needs to go over the tube on the cage of the machine.
You want to make sure when you install the windshield to the machine that the lower bracket that we install goes over the top of the tube on the cage of the machine.
So for this next step, we will be installing our hardware to the bracket we previously installed. If you don’t have a SuperATV roof, you will use the hexhead hardware included in the kit.
We have a SuperATV roof installed on this machine, so we’ll remove the hardware from it, and then we’ll reinstall this bolt directly through our bracket and into the bracket on our roof.
We’ll push our windshield in until our hole lines up. We’re just going to run that in hand tight for now. We will come back and tighten these two bolts along with this bolt.
Now we’re going to take our heavy-duty velcro strap and install it to the windshield around the tube of the cage. We have an enclosure on this machine—I’m going to have to feed this strap through, and then I’m going to go to the inside of the machine and wrap it through the hole in the windshield through my clamp, tighten it, and fasten it.
Now we will fully tighten our hardware, securing our windshield to our roof. Then we’ll fully tighten our brackets on the bottom of the windshield and the top of the windshield. When you tighten the top hardware, you might want someone to help you. It’s difficult to tighten by yourself.
