I'm Curious how you made out with your quest to street legal your unit. In particular were you able to get around the Dot windsheild issue, I know the TR 54 says no plexiglass but it also says safety glass were you able to prove it's safety glass somehow? I'm working on getting mine there since I found out I'm limited to sides of County roads and orv trails. I am interested in going down those state land rds (2 tracks) that you can only go down if your plated.

I was able to get away with a manual wiper, using the EMP DOT approved Windshield.

I just have 1/4" lexan for windshield. Didn't have to prove anything. Actual plate and tab came in the mail yesterday. It's the Vanity plate "Proud to be American " took a week or so to get. A woman came out couple weeks ago and put new vin on the frame.

Re: street legal in michigan ?

I beleive that's what I have, was hoping to get away with that for a windsheild. Were did you get the rest of your stuff like wipers, washers ect. I'm building my own turn signals, picked up a horn and motor cycle switches for lights turn signals and horn from ebay ($15). Windsheild, wipers and washers is my next hurtle. Oh btw were did you get it inspected and what sosm how did they register it?

I also have a lexan window - I made it so there is no DOT stamp. I didn't have to prove anything either. I also used a manual wiper off off Amazon and a window wash tank / pump / sprayers / hose /switch - all in a kit from NAPA for around $30. Fit perfect under the hood - fairly small tank. I used aftermakeket snowmobile side mirrors - easy mount (adjustable) $20 a piece. I had a few sets of tires and sold my Bighorns - that paid for my new tires. I put on DOT General Grabbers AT2's. Outside of that - going street legal cost me between $500-$600 including fees and temp plate at SOS. My local dealer just converted a new RZR 900 4 seated they have for sale - they charged around $3000 for the conversion. If you do your homework and do it yourself it wont cost a fortune. For inspection I got a a pretty nice cop - mostly checked out the mirrors, blinkers, and lights. He checked that I had secondary (bright) lights that could be turned on and off. He made sure my
tires were DOT. I had a folder with all the paperwork (receipts) and my title. He asked if I had my title - but never asked to look at any of the paperwork. Went pretty smooth. I still have my temporary plate. It's been around a month since I got my new registration and plate. SOS said it would be 4-6
weeks before I got my title. I've put about 300 miles on it since and have passed several cops and havnt got pulled over. A couple of them did a double take and caught their attention - but never stopped me. It was well worth it for me - been a blast so far.....

I've put quite a few miles on the street and havnt had any problems - I do take corners easy and swing as wide as possible. If i jump on the throttle at all its going straight. The rear diff doesn't seem to run any warmer than usual - even on a hot day. I'm sure if you were running really hard, on the gas hard making sharp turns all the time your cv's would definitely make some noise from wear after a while. As I said I havnt had any problems, and had quite a few miles on my RZR before I hit the street.........

Same here about the cops look twice and are probably thinking"should I turn around, nah he waved it's gotta be legal"lol. 90% of ppl I pass have a dumbfounded look on their face and wherever I stop I always get asked about it. Same about 300 miles.

The last cop we passed right downtown looked pretty shocked when we passed him. He hit his brake lights and I thought for sure he was gonna turn around. But he kept going. I told my son the same thing - that cop must have thought nah, he's gotta be street legal, he can't be that stupid. Haha. The looks on people's faces is priceless. A lady at the gas station asked me if it was a type of Smart car. I said no its a Polaris, she said who makes that Chrysler?? WOW I finally said yeah they just came out Lol
