What’s up, guys? Today we’ll show you how to install SuperATV’s Soft Cab Enclosure on this Honda Pioneer 1000-5 in seven steps.
First, take denatured rubbing alcohol and clean the cage’s surface. You’ll want to clean all the plastic on top of the doors and surfaces around them.
Then go through with a clean rag and wipe down all the areas you sprayed. Make sure you get it dry and clean.
Once your cage is clean, take the hook and loop fasteners and start placing them around the tube. As you move up the tube, you will see a spot where it doesn’t want to lay down just right—take your blade or a pair of scissors and make a slight relief cut. Try to get it to where it lies flat as possible.
The key is to keep making these relief cuts when needed. The tighter you can get it on the machine, the better off you’ll be as far as the longevity of the adhesive. When you get to a spot where it makes a bend, make another relief cut.
Right here, you’re going to have a gap where you can’t get your loop fastener to go down, so you’re going to trim it on both sides and then tuck that piece down. Also, you’ll have a bolt right here—you’ll want to trim around that.
Once you get to this bend, you’ll cut off and start a fresh piece, making it lay nicer. We’ll run it until we get to this spot, make a relief cut, and tuck it down.
Here’s another spot that can be tricky. It would help if you made a relief cut here. And you’re just going to go ahead and cut it off right here. This should get it fully seated in the cage.
Then we’re going to have a piece that will run right here. I like to eyeball that. If it overlaps a little bit—tuck it back for the rear windshield. We’ll do a little spot for this section, so eyeball the piece. We’ll do another piece here.
If you have a rear windshield installed, take this strap off. This piece runs down to here—cut off the extra, then we’ll make a little piece for right here. You’ll want to go through and make sure this hook and loop are fastened to your machine.
Then we’ll take our next piece and start on the B pillar of the cage. We’re going to run it from here to this bone. I will do this in two parts and run it right here. Then cut it off. Make sure it’s securely fastened.
This piece will never seal correctly, so I trim it off. That looks good. Now we’re going to run a straight piece here. Make sure it’s seated to the cage.
We waited fifteen minutes after installing our adhesive to let it entirely set up and cure the cage. Now we’re going to the front section of our cab enclosure—we’re going to hang and line it up.
We’re going through and making sure that our cab enclosure is installed. You’ll be able to pull it down and place your snaps in a suitable location.
You’ll want to keep working on this enclosure until it’s where it needs to be and looks good.
Now we’re going to install the rear portion. Once you have your front portion in the correct position, take this rear flap and undo it. Then take your front flap and line it up like this.
We’ll keep adjusting it—you want to ensure it’s nice and tight. You want to ensure a good area where you can install your snaps.
Once you have your front and rear aligned how you like it, you’re going to go to the back of the snaps—take a paint marker, mark on the snap, then firmly press the snap down so it leaves a mark.
Then you will grab one of your buttons and drill into the plastic with it in the center of your mark. Then you will take it and install the snap. After that, you continue that process for the rest of your snaps. You will want to do that for the front doors as well.
In this kit, we also ship you enough hook and loop fastener to velcro the top of the doors.
If you want to use the velcro, all you need to do is lay it in the area on the bottom side of the cab enclosure where it lays on the door.
Now we’ll snap our cab enclosure to all of our snaps or velcro if that’s what you used.
Once you have everything how you like it, take these straps and wrap them around the cage, and tighten them down. They hook back to themselves.
The strap will run through the cab enclosure if you have a SuperATV rear windshield installed. Then loop your strap back around and fully fasten it.
Now you’re going to take your zipper tethers, slide them through like that, and then wrap them around the tether. All your zippers should look like this. Do the inside as well as the outside.
You can zip it up, or if it’s summer and you don’t need it—unsnap it and roll it up out of the way.
Then to reinstall it, you must zip it back up and reinstall your snaps.
Everything we did on this side, you need to do on the other side.
