Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

I had a half windshield on my old rhino and found that it created a vortex and actually made the dust worse in the cab area..... might try a ride without it... just my .02

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

It's a bit like the exhaust fume problem (which I think isn't as bad on the 09s because of the downturned exhaust tip?). Most people add a rear screen. That helped the exhaust fumes, but the dust of course is being whipped up well before the exhaust.

That said, at speed I noticed dust being sucked up through the slot where the gearshift goes, amongst other leaky places. Some people have blanked off the entire lower portion with plastic sheet gaffa taped on. That would be my next mod, will always get dust swirling about, but when I could physically see huge amounts of it being drawn in from behind I know that removing that source of dust would be a great help.

There is also a front blanking off kit which has got to help too - though I've tried to avoid all the blanking off kits because I think it produces more problems than it solves - overheating regulators on the 08s as well as the reduced air flow just making it more damp and harder to dry out, particulary when left sat lying about even though it looks dry on the outside.

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

I have the full Polaris Lock N Ride windshield and the Directions 2 rear window. Still the lower portion of the cab gets quite a bit of dust. I have found the best for non dust issues is to ditch all the windshields. Which I do when it is not cold or looks like rain. The front windshield comes off in seconds and I put wing nuts on the rear windshield and it comes off almost as fast.

A rear shield or screen really helps especially if you run with a windshield.

After 1/2 hour of riding dusty trails this rear shield is so dusty you can hardly see out of it anymore but the cab is almost dust free.

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

I have the Polaris 1/2 windshield, the trick is to raise the windshield up about an inch from the bottom.
This eliminates a low pressure area behind it, also I use a Simpson headache screen in the back of the cab, it has small holes instead of the big strap type grid, better at reducing air turbulance.
Also I installed the Polaris cab block out pieces.
I do get some dust but not what I would call a problem and do not see any swirling clouds.

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

I have a full windsheild, bought it with the RZR, dealer installed. Went rideing for 5 straight days. the fifth day I was fed up with the dust and removed the windshield, but all too late. The motor locked up tight.
Polaris response, your gonna love this..... You shouldn't of had the windshield on, the RZR, if your going to be driveing in a dusty area!
Well long story short I got a new motor needless to say. So be advised if you have any motor issues take off the windshields before takeing your TOY to the dealer.
Let me know if all these things work.I am useing full windheild after it rains. Would like to use something all the time, I am considering get the half windshield for the summer.
GOOD LUCK.

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

The half windshield with the turn up lip -Polaris-at the top works well to keep the wind off of your body and the wind stream goes over your head.
We always wear helmets so there is not an eye factor with dirt/dust either.

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

i took a old rubber mat i had from my old truck bed, cut it to fit and cover under all of the seat area. left it long in the back to tuck it down past the clutch cover. duct taped it along the sides and front. you will also have to put about a 1/4" spacer on the two things that hold the back of the seats down and cut the mat in the front where they slide under the bar in front. seems to keep alot off dust out even with my 1/2 window on.

Trail Armor RZR Underdash and Fender Dust Seal Kit - 3 PC - Custom ATV Accessories by Trail Armor

and I am in the process of getting a piece made for under the seats that is removable for service that works very well. When my guy has it done I will let you know the cost he charged me.

I also added a piece of foam behind the front kit and that has stopped the dust greatly.

Someone needs to come up with little plugs thatyou could put in the floor and remove for cleaning. that would be the best

I have also heard that the skid plate from factory UTV helps as if seems to seal up the bottom of the rzr

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

super s puppy built a solid rear windshield that completely covers the rear of his RZR. We rode in extremely dusty conditions and he followed me for a few hours. After we stopped, he had very little dust in the seating area of his RZR. The outside of his rear winshield was coated with dust while the inside was completely clean. It basically sucks all the dust out of the seating area and keeps the inside of the RZR clean. I have the half windshield and get lots of dust inside of mine. From what I have seen, the rear windshield works!

Re: How do you keep the dust out of the cab???

ditch the stupid windshield. those things suck donkey. but if you must have it, raise it up so there is 2-3 inch gap at bottom of windshield to machine. this will vent most of the dust, it really helps.
