windshield, dust, back window, cab question

Sorry i know this subject has been beat into the ground but i'm having a hard time figuring this out. I just bought an 09 RZR with the lock-n-ride windshiled and i believe it has a polaris roof. I want to get a back panel to help with the dust swilrling in the cab. Also, this winter i'd like to enclose the cab. My question is: With the windshield and roof that i have, is there a cab system that will work with just the back panel in place that i could just install the doors later?

I'm not really sure if my question makes sence but i'm not sure how to word it. Thanks for any help you can provide.
Here's a pic showing the roof and windshield i currently have.

I'm not aware of one, but you could get some doors, Just probably not full doors, and probably would be a trick to seal it half decently to the W/S, top and future rear.

Here's an affordable back:

Tusk UTV Rear Window | UTV | Rocky Mountain ATV/MC

ProArmor has a nice looking enclosure kit, IF you have their doors as well.

Re: windshield, dust, back window, cab question

If your end result is a cab, you need to start over.

I would suggest the Polaris Soft Cab, I've had it installed since purchase of the ride back in 2010, holding up well, no complaints.

Re: windshield, dust, back window, cab question

I have the full w/s on the front, soft top and soft rear w/s, and pro armour doors. It cut down on the dust I was getting with just the w/s and top, but you will still get dust from under the dash and from behind the seat. Also, in the winter the full w/s will fog up on the inside AND outside. I'll have to seal the cracks and install a heater/defroster or just take it all off and wear goggles....

Re: windshield, dust, back window, cab question

The Polaris soft cab comes with the block off kits, and any 2012 or newer model rzr has the kits already installed.

Yes, by having the full windshield TOGETHER WITH a top and rear window you can make the bulk of the dust you kick up settle behind the rear window in the cargo area, but without the ability to vent your windshield (Polaris Flip Out W/S) dust you kick up can still come in the sides in differing wind conditions, with the Flip Out in the vent position it adds a positive pressure situation within your cab that further forces anything back out of the cab area. This is even more pronounced when we have our doors on.

Our system works just as I have described, the lions share of dirt and debris make it to the cargo area and stay out of the cab. Keep in mind, that if you have a cleaner cab, you have a cleaner air box as well.



This image is from last summer, enlarge it and note the eye rubbing and dirty clothes on the half windshield guy, and the no windshield guy was only better off leading, or following way behind.

We were clean after the ride..

Carry on!

Re: windshield, dust, back window, cab question

I don't have all the dust taken care of ... but enough.

I have the Lock N Ride full windshield with electric wiper. Very handy. A rear windshield that is a Kolpin. I put in an under seat seal kit you can buy on e-bay. I use 2" aluminum tape to seal the under seat kit and the rear access panel. I got a pair of the Cabelas floor mats, and a pool snake to seal under the dash.

Yeah, it still gets dusty, but somewhat better. Also helps me cheer for the rain instead of cuss it!!! LOL!!!

Re: windshield, dust, back window, cab question

thanks for the input guys. i'm going to try the Tusk rear panel for now and i may end up getting a cab for winter. I'm also going to seal under the seats and under the dash.

How much do you think the clutch and air intakes sucking air from the cab help to create a low pressure zone and suck dust into the cab? I am looking at running my intakes out the side so that they are not sucking from inside the cab. Has anyone noticed a difference with the dust in a RZR 570?

It has to, that is the reason I use the flip-out w/s, it lets in far more clean air than the intake requires, therefore the pressure in the cab is greater than outside the cab, and crap stays out of the cab.

Re: windshield, dust, back window, cab question

I have the emp flip out windshield, but I do not want to have it open this winter and still want to keep the dust out. Do you guys think moving the intakes to the side of the bed like the 900s and 570s will help out with the dust? Anyone report any noticeable difference the 900s and 570s with a full cab?

This is the perfect example! I started with no windsheild, got dusted! Switched to half windshield, it was better in the cold, but got dusted WORSE! Just got me new full 60/40 full folding windshield (like in the picture & full rear windshield ans expect a great ride. All my buddies do this & I'm following suit!

Re: windshield, dust, back window, cab question

Half windshield wont work worth a crap unless its mounted 2 inches above the dash. Dont matter if your leading, following or riding alone. I run a half windshield (2 inches up), rear window and a Direction 2 roof that has an opening in the rear that acts like a spoiler. I have tried every combination at its the one that works best.
Full windshield by itself is absolutely the dirtest ride you will get.
