Posted 19 April 2017 - 11:15 AM

So I just picked up a 2014 XRS with the stock windshield (which is useless if you ride in cold temperatures or if you want to be king of the lake).

 

And I think the stock riser is about 130 MM (5.1") tall; I do not plan to go to a taller riser.

 

Anywho, I am looking for a hand guard and REAL windshield set-up.  Can anyone make some recommendations?

Post forward on xrs is much tighter using medium shield and handguards than non post forward. It will work though but you'll need to keep the riser more inline with the post angle, which is where it should be anyway imo.

Nice.

 

Who makes that windshield?  And do the hand guards hit the windshield at all?

Ski-Doo Part number: 860200602 the cold guards do not hit the windshield but the stock Ski-Doo ones did.

I have a 16 xrs and with the stock riser and stock handguards on a medium shield you have to pull the riser too far back for it to work. Medium with no handguards is the best bet, but I have also done the X low with handguards. Overall it's colder, but looks better. I'm more function over look however.
