2014 windshield opinions

Looking to buy a full windshield. Just wanting some input on the ones that have purchased one. How are they holding up against scratches and price. I like the kolplin. Any input is helpful. By the way that new 800 is a bad fother mucker!!

I've got the kolplin full tilt windshield and like it. The top part comes off in a few minutes and its holding up good. The only bad is when it's tilted out your line of sight is right where the tilt is. Other than that we like it.

We just purchased a 2014 Kaw. Teryx4 and am looking for a flip down lexan windsheild. Talked with Kawasaki today and they said the flip down for the 2013 t4 would not work. does anyone know if the roof line/roll cage is the same on th 14 (LE with roof) and 13?

Koplin is what I got & has been good on trails & trailer!
It does get in your line of view sometimes for sure!

I've been hoping someone would come out with a nice rear soft plastic window with velcro straps for on off cleaning!

Come On Classic Accessories, please make us Teryx4 owners a rear window!!!

Everybody call & bug them @ 800-854-2315

Sorry, back to front windshield...

Is the Koplin and the Direction2 windshield the same? They look alike, but Direction2 is cheaper in price.

Go with safety glass only!!!!!!!!! Plastic ones will not hold up , spent the extra and you will be please

Also you can't use a windshield wiper with lexan or plastic, but works great with glass.

I bought just the frame from EXTREME METAL PRODUCTS 2 years ago and had my buddy who works for a glass company install the glass. never took it off my Teryx since I put it on and still is great. Don't care what other guys say, the lexan or plastisc will scratch, seen lots of them on my buddies and look terrible after time

Forum member 'Motel', was making custom windshields. You may check with him. I have one of his and it has been great for the 2 years or so that I have had it. Cheaper than OEM too.

Does the Kolpin windshield go all the way up to the roof, or is there a gap at the top?

One question I have about the glass windshield:

What happens if you get roosted with rocks? Does it break like a car windshield?

Mine has a small gap, but not enough to worry with. No problem with things coming in over the top. Just enough room for the tilt and to let me remove the top part without hitting the roof.

I have a 2012 Camo EPS, with the Kawasaki plastic roof. My first windshield was the Kawasaki Half. It was just ok. The flip at the top helped deflect some air, but i found myself wanting a taller windshield. I raised it up about 2 inches but was still looking for more height. I now have a full windshield, Kawasaki Teryx 4 Seater Full with Tilt Windshield Premium double sided Mar-Resistant windshield. Harder to Scratch and Easier to Clean. Best of both Worlds - Half when you want and Full when you Need. Made in America

I went with the 1/4" as it has better resistance to scratching. I have used it for 2 months now, and have towed it on 2 trips. Worlds better than the half windshield. Simple to install, and to fold down. Bryan is a great guy. Very Happy.

I can't find any info on the od of the tubes being different from year to year but when I emailed super atv they told me that the brackets may not fit. Any help would be much appreciated!
