    Please read and understand these instructions completely before installation to avoid injury to yourself, damage to the vehicle or accessory

                                 Be certain to follow all specifications.  For proper installation, two people are required 

         Dealer:  These instructions contain important information for future reference and must be given to the customer at time of purchase or upon completion of installation.                                              Torque specifications must be followed when tightening bolts.


1. Installation 

a) To apply the edge guard (Item C) to the lower windshield (Item B), find a clean flat

area where you can lay down the windshield.  Partially remove the protective film

on both sides and apply the edge guard using manual pressure to ensure good

adhesion to the windshield. 


                                                                                                                        Dash contour 29 ¾" edge guard strip 

b) To apply the foam cushion (Item D) to the upper windshield (Item A), find a clean flat area where you

can lay down the windshield.  Partially remove the protective film and apply the self adhesive foam

cushion using manual pressure to ensure good adhesion to the windshield.

c) Attach clamps (Item E & F) to the roll cage of your vehicle as per drawings.  The 2 lower

clamp sets will be used to attach the lower windshield and must be installed with the

threaded inserts facing the front of the vehicle.  The remaining (2) clamp sets will be used to

attach the upper windshield.  Install them by ensuring that the threaded inserts are aligned

from right to left of the roll cage.  Do not tighten at this stage; you will need to make adjustments later on.

d) Install the lower windshield to all four lower clamps using supplied hardware (Item G) without applying final torque.  Adjust the position of the windshield (For height reference; the center arch edge guard should be the only part in contact with the hood) and tighten all screws with specified torque indicated below.  Ensure that the windshield is perfectly level before tightening.  If the windshield isn’t level, windshield functions will be affected.  Over tightening clamps to roll bar could cause parts failures

e) To attach pivot components to upper windshield (Item A), as per step a), find a clean flat area where you can lay down the windshield.  Partially remove the protective film where components (Item H & I) are to be attached and follow drawings below.  All screws that are passing through the windshield will be tightened later in step f).   Do not over-tighten the screws that combine the slide arm with the lower pivot, those 2 parts need to swivel.

3. Pull gently on the windshield as per drawing #2 towards the front of the vehicle for the

     upper pivot to slide to the end onto the upper pivot cylinder adaptor. 

4. Lower the windshield as per drawing #3 and the upper pivot will catch the second upper

     pivot cylinder adaptor. 

5. Adjust the height of the upper clamp first by ensuring the overall leveling. 

6. Tighten all screws regarding the upper pivot.

7. Adjust the height of the clamp to the lower pivot and slide arm and use ‘T’ knob to lock in

    place.  Drawing #4 shows the position you should have when windshield is closed

8. Tighten all remaining screws and nuts.                                                                                                                  2611


To operate the tilt mechanism: 

Simply loosen both ‘T’ knobs (without removing them) and push on the upper windshield from the

inside of the cab until the desired position is reached.  Then tighten knobs.  Note that there are 3 pre-

determined positions on the slide arm; closed, half-opened and fully-extended. 

 The tilt mechanism is designed for cooling the airflow in warm temperatures. 

 Note that any open positions are designed for low-speed operation ONLY. 

 At high speed riding or when transporting the vehicle, the windshield must be closed. 

To remove the upper windshield: 

Remove both ‘T’ knobs and follow reverse instructions 4, 3 & 2 of step #f).
