Spied these pics of a good home made windshield today for the RF chassis that I may try to duplicate.

 

I have asked the seller for the windshield source model/yr but I think it is a Wedge Indy chassis high windshield as could be found on a Polaris Widetrak, Supertrak or Trail Deluxe.  Hopefully he will reply today with details.

I think everybody wants this! I'll do my best to track it down. After looking and reviewing, I'm thinking it could also be the windshield from a Skandic SUV

Alright, had a brief discussion with the seller this AM, he tells me that the windshield came from an S2000 Chassis Touring LE (1995-2001). I was skeptical as that one is pretty wide, but he said he trimmed up the corners and used a heat gun to re-form the headlight area once the correct cut-out was made. He did point out that it wasn't as effective as he had hoped due to the distance from the windshield to the driver, crosswinds in particular. This is the same issue they had with the Polaris IQ WT's. I will try to get my hands one of these windshields today and see how it fits.

Not yet, busy night.  Trying to source an S2000 screen that's the right height and won't break the bank.  $115 + ship from Royal, will chk the dealer today to see what he has kicking around.
