I bought mine when I bought the machine and the dealer warned me then about hauling it with it on. I do haul it with the wind deflector on. After buying the deflector and trying both, the back window had to go. The deflector was forcing too much air up, more than the back could pass so then the wind was hitting us from the back.I bought the Yamaha soft rear window that adapts to the accessary mount. Has anyone gotten one of the EMP hard Ones? Any opinions? Can you tow with it in? Not real thrilled with the visibility with mine
Interesting. When I installed our Yamaha soft back window, the instructions warned against hauling it with the window on. Frankly, it was a pain to be constantly taking it off/putting it back on. When I complained to my dealer she said that they had sold several of these and, to their knowledge, no one removed them during transport. So I leave it on now. Haven't seen any stress tears or anything like that so far 1, 000 km in. (OP, I am now thinking you meant hauling with the emp hard one installed. I have no experience traveling with a hard one on. If so, disregard this. )I bought mine when I bought the machine and the dealer warned me then about hauling it with it on. I do haul it with the wind deflector on.

I leave it on all of the time, except when I need to access the rear of the bed. If you were to want it off, the top wrap just unsnaps and you could roll it up then.SteveS,
Nice contribution I might try something like this. Will have to study your pictures. So does this roll up when not in use or it doesn't appear to..
Nice idea however. Really like it.
did not see your post until today. I just installed the EMP last weekend . going on a hunting trip end of the month. question i have is like most . TOWING . driving 6 hrs at highway speeds . any problems with yours ?I have the EMP one and I like it. I mainly bought mine to keep the wind through the cab down when the weather was cold, and it worked for that. Over the winter, I rode over to watch some races when it was below 20 degrees out, and the only time I got cold going down the road at 40-50mph was when I got a nasty cross wind on a long straight stretch. I only towed mine twice with it on and didn't have any issues, but I also had the front windshield up. I took it off last week because the weather is getting nice. and it took me all of 30 seconds or so to get it off there.
hey thanks for the feed back. I'm going to remove it for this trip , it being new and all. but i'm sure that will get old fast.I have the EMP rear pane, no front windshield . I had no problem towing it at 70 mph from NC to Utah and back. In the dusty Utah area you can see how it stops dust from coming in on the driver.
