Brand: Kolpin Powersports
This Polaris Ranger 500 Windshield by Kolpin is a full tilting windshield that protects you and your passengers from the rain, snow, dust, brush and other debris. It fits the 2006-2009 Polaris Ranger 500 and 700 models. You'll love the versatile 3-position tilt mechanism on the Polaris Ranger 500 windshield. You can quickly and easily adjust your windshield from fully closed, to half-extended, and to fully extended for the ideal level of ventilation. No tools needed. We also love that you can quickly convert your Polaris Ranger 500 windshield into a half windshield. Simply remove the top panel. It's quick and easy to do.
Kolpin designs their windshields to last. Each windshield is constructed of ultra thick, high-quality, and scratch resistant 1/4 inch MR10 GE Lexan polycarbonate. The super smooth edges and custom bend design provide maximum rigidity. This is one of the best windshields on the market.
NOTE: Open positions are designed for low-speed airflow ONLY. High-speed riding or trailering require the windshield to be in the FULLY CLOSED position.
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.
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.

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.
f) Install upper pivot cylinder adaptors to clamps as per drawings. Tighten all socket cap screws M6 x 45. (Do not tighten the screws that hold the clamp to the roll cage.
g) Attach upper windshield to the machine by following instructions below.
1. Make sure that both upper clamps are at the same height.
2. Hold the upper windshield horizontally and slide it down by ensuring that both upper pivot
cylinder adaptors are going through the upper pivot as per drawing #1.
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.
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).
2. Maintenance and Care
Tighten all hardware after first use and periodically thereafter.
