    FYI, I wear duty boots with side zippers. I had one that was giving me fits. 3m pure silicon spray fixed the zipper. I now spray them as needed. Be careful of getting it on the other material. It may affect it.

    Spray, not slay. Spell check got me. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!

    Watching the video really makes me want one. Thanks for the video Massive. I bought the glass OEM windshield and haven't installed it yet (waiting on both the new X4 and the windshield ). Do you think there is a way to make the soft cab work with the glass windshield? I know it says they are not compatible but usually where there's a will there's a way. If it can't be done, I'll have to weigh my options of staying with the glass or returning it for poly/cab.

    Good to hear. I was looking at your install and comparing the poly windshield to the glass and couldn't really see where the issue may be. The glass unit fits inside the frame tubes and the poly one looks to wrap around the outside.

    From what I remember the soft cab fabric will fit in between but it's a tight fit.

    So after year and a half of opening and closing my driver side zipper, it finally broke. Well, to be fair, it broke after I tried adjusting it for the umpteenth time by using pliers to crimp the zipper closed due to zipper wear. I'm a firm believer in the zipper tooth style that Yamaha uses on its OEM soft cabs. The zipper teeth have held up very good and no broken teeth so far. I initially calculated that I put about 2.5 miles of wear on my driver side zipper pull, but considering that I leave my windows rolled up most of the summer, I'm going to cut that figure in half to a little over a mile.

    The poor victim



    Now you can buy zipper repair pulls that don't require you to take apart the zipper teeth ends but they're a little expensive (compared to stock and you all know I'm a cheap bastard) and I wanted to keep the OEM look. Whatever you decide, you'll need a 10C double-pull replacement (preferably genuine YYK). I purchased mine from Amazon, which are genuine YYK and bought 4 to do the others when they finally wear out

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    First thing you want to do is find the sewn zipper stop at the top of your soft cab door



    Cut the seam



    Install your replacement YYK 10C double zipper with double pulls



    Now, you can try to re-sew in a zipper stop, use a brass zipper stop, or my preferred method would be to simply use some RTV or fabric glue to create one. Really though, I never unzip my zipper all the way back to that spot even when rolling back my windows so unless you're paranoid, you could just leave it as is.

    Good as new
