Cab enclosures

I am looking for a soft cab enclosure so I can ride around the mountains in the winter. I have a SuperATV front flip windshield. Any idea what brand fits the best?

I too have the kawi set-up. really wish I wouldn't have had the dealer install it though. the fit and finish is terrible; I had to re-drill out the holes in my doors on my brand new T4. All in all, the rare earth magnets work well to keep the doors closed and my two young boys have no issues opening closing them. As for the windshield, you would lose the ability to open/close the flip part and you would have to adhere Velcro strips to the side of the windshield unless you came up with a better solution. it would work though.

I bought one recently from Greene Mountain Outdoors. Well made, easy install and I have the SuperATV flip windshield also. We received 18” of snow on Sunday and the wife, 5 year old, 2 year old and I rode roughly 30 miles and stayed very comfortable. I’m well pleased. We’ll be headed to WV in 3 weeks!

Haha. The 2 pics in our garage were right after riding while it was still snowing 2” an hour. The last was during the afternoon when it had stopped. Stock setup and it went really well! 2017 T4 LE.

Would somebody get this moving snowbank out of my way! You should submit a picture to the Teryx of the month. I certainly would vote for it.
Lots of fun there. How long to get it thawed out?

Great pics of the teryx4 in the snow. Looks like you sold me on the Greene Mountains Outdoors enclosures.

It took probably 24 hours to get thawed out. Due to replacing a door in our basement, I had to park in the garage where there is no floor drain. Sucked up 20 gallons of water, lol.

One other thing I did was buy some 12 volt seater warmers on Amazon since we ride with our kids. They can be plugged together, but I plugged one up front and one in the back. Ran both on the high setting and neither one mentioned being cold a single time. I had thought about adding a heater that’s tied into the radiator lines, but even the wife said she didn’t think it was cold enough to need it. The enclosure really helps keep you warm.

Another trick I did was to use pipe wrap insulation across the top of my windshield to seal between it and the roof. I ran some down the side between the roll cage and roof the same way as my roof had about a 1/2 to 3/4” gap most of the way along the sides.

The rear enclosure attaches to the underside of your roof with Velcro and double sided tape (no issues there) and then 5 screws along the bottom, attaching to your bed. Everywhere else uses heavy duty Velcro around the roll cage with a ring to pull it tight back against itself.

Does anyone make a soft enclosure that can be trailered with the enclosure on? I think I'd like one for ice fishing but I don't have an enclosed trailer and I see that most of the ones I've looked at have a disclaimer that you can't trailer with the enclosure installed.

Call Green Mountain outdoors and talk to Kevin. I haven’t tried it yet but he says you can haul theirs with the enclosure on. He said if anything, turn it around backwards to where the wind will be pushing against the roll cage. They are avid riders and go to West Virginia often, which is close to three hours away for us.

He said if anything, turn it around backwards where the wind will be blowing the rear enclosure against the back of the roll cage. It seems sturdy overall. They are avid riders and go to WV pretty often.

Do you get a draft coming in from the steering column? After putting my enclosure on, everything seems sealed for the most part, i just get a big draft coming on from the steering column and blows cold air right onto my lap. Just wondering if you experienced this as well, and if so, how did you seal it off?

No, I don’t have a draft from the steering column. The most noticeable was from my windshield where it meets the roof. I have a mirror on the roll bar up there and it was directing air down onto me. After some pipe wrap insulation to fill the gap, no more draft.

I've got the Greene Mountain one too. I run it with the factory hard top. No complaints at all. Good product. I don't think I've ever trailered it with it fully on but I never take the rear piece off. It's been on the trailer many times.

I have thought about a cab for fall. But IMO ATVs and sxs are useless in snow. These heavy SXS maybe more so. But snow is relevant. Here by spring it is 4-6 feet deep. Even the heavy spring snow will not support a sxs. 48" of powder one deer season was only passable for a bit, by going forward and backward. My house doesn't get as much, but the atv is barely useable, on flat ground.

I live in southern WI, teryx lives in UP where I am from. I use 4 wheeler down here to plow, cause we don't get a ton of snow. It so-so. I have had to use truck to pull it out of. A few inches are fine, but does require revving the heck out of it.
