Hi guys,
Just purchased a new bike. Looking for a few opinions:
1. Aftermarket parts or ordering via dealership/ Yamaha
2. Roof or windshield first? Or both at once?
3. Full or folding windshield?

Thanks for your help and insight guys 😊

I've been reading from others the odd angles on the later models make aftermarket roofs difficult to manufacture.

So I'm betting Yamaha OEM roof will be your only choice for a roof. I prefer a roof and windshield together, I run a half windshield when its not winter. Everyone I've talked to that has a folding windshield likes it. I don't so cannot comment.

Have fun!

For me it's roof and windshield right out of the gate.. Side mirrors as well. From there it really depends on what type of riding you do.
Storage for tools, emergency items are important as well.

I've had mine 2 months and planned on waiting until it was paid off to get accessories, but after 2 rides I got a half windshield, then one more ride I got roof, full windshield, and side mirrors, honestly those 3 are an absolute must for not only a better quality ride experience but safety. I then got a winch for riding alone piece of mind and a bump seat for my little guy to ride up front with us.

Good point on the winch!

Old story, I didn't have a winch to start with. Didn't want to spend the money. Almost always 99% ride with someone else with a winch. Then had a close call out by myself but made it out. Ordered the $700 winch, yes I could have spent half that.

Wife saw me putting the winch on. Oh you got a winch, how much was that? Well honey if I'm out by myself and get stuck and have to walk out then go back with help to find the machine stolen, this winch saved us (machine cost) - (winch cost) so we are actually making money by putting this on.

It worked.

I got mine for Xmas because my dad was worried about me getting stuck in the wilderness, or having to hoist an elk up a mountain, really if you Install yourself and go with a badlands winch you can get into one for less than
175$ with the mounting plate and all, its really cheap insurance.

Thanks for the help guys! We’ve got the winch set up on it and ready to go! Side mirrors have been ordered and waiting to arrive. Upgrading from our outlander and have been trying to convince the hubby we need the roof and windshield ASAP 😉

YamahaMama, don't forget the back windshield or you will get a lot of dust sucked in to the cabin. let me add some safety items. a fire extinguisher and health safety kit, (band aids, etc,). If you ride alone i would recommend some type of gps\satellite communication system for emergency response. I run a Garmin Montana 750i GPS with Inreach technology for emergency communication. There are other much cheaper models and other competition with it also.

Thanks for that point! We had planned to eventually add soft enclosure as we are in Canada and plan to do winter riding (for reference it is current 20°F and we have about 2’ of snow and this is a nice day!)... but will think about doing the back windshield sooner

Again apologies for my terminology .. didn’t think it would be an issue (my Canadian/ maritime language coming out)🤨 and it is a SXS not a bike.. hence asking for a roof and windshield? Post was also clear on it being an X4..
Have a great day !

Pretty much understood it was a Side By Side. I live near Canada and hear it a lot. I tease my Canadian neighbors and it was a little bit of a tease to you. Welcome to the Forum! You will get all the information you need here and I hope you share your information with all of us, you can call your ride whatever you want (y)
