    You can go as fast as that Wolvie can go! I'd recommend shutting it while trailering at highways speeds, but on the trail you can hammer down!

    Has anyone thought of a way to minimize that gap at the top? like a piece of thin rubber or something attached to the roof, that would sit against the top of the windshield?

    I have installed the windshield and found that in rain, you still get water drops coming thru, not much, but still hits your face when you are cruising, so its kind of annoying.

    I use some black pipe insulation.

    I’ve got the Yamaha full windshield and it’s got a gasket that slides on to the top of the windshield and presses against the roof with a bulb seal. Something like that might work pretty well.

    I am struggling to get the flip up installed correctly.
    All of my hardware is loose and forcing it down to get the lower and upper joint right seems impossible.
    It is to the point where I am getting pissed... This should not be that difficult.

    I had to do a warranty replacement with Yamaha to get a roof that was not warped so I could buy the flip up.

    Is there an obvious trick that I am missing?

    I spoke to two different guys at superatv.

    They were nice and helpful, but that didn't help me fix my issue.

    The second guy recommended closing the latch while everything is loose and lining it all up.
    This would work, but I still feel like I am going to break something.

    Any advice?
    I am at the end of my rope with this.

    I installed the rubber seal on the bottom portion of the windshield 1st, then pushed it down until a good seal to the hood. Square it up from side to side and then tighten the clamps. Do the same for the top portion, then lock the center, and then tighten the clamps. Leave the film on until you get it on, so it won't get scratched. Take your time you'll get it, and love it once it's on.

    I used pipe foam tubing from Lowe’s on the top edge and secured it with 4 wire ties along the length. Each tie needed a hole drilled at the edge of the foam. This stays put and seals well. Don’t tighten the wire ties enough to crimp the foam. Some of the foam insulation has a sticky edge but still needs the wire ties for keeping in place.

    I have been able to reshape the edge of my roof with a heat gun and some spreader clamps. Need to let it cool with spreader clamps in place and then check it. Be patient the plastic will have some memory and you can learn the right amount of heat versus permanent movement. I also use a water mister to cool it down but have found natural cooling off is better to keep its shape. You do need some patience. Heat the plastic on bottom side sweeping along a line or the area you want to reshape until it is too hot to the touch on the opposite side and then push it to were you want it and let it cool or hold in place with a glove on and mist it cool with water or a soaked towel.
