Do your doors help with dust?

I went for a ride by myself today and noticed that most of the dust was swirling in from the lower door opening in the front ,was wondering if you guys with doors noticed if it helped keep dust out.

I will assume you have a full windshield?

The dust is drawn into the cab because of the air foil that the machine creates, this is made many times stronger with the full windshield in place.

By adding a top and rear window, this foil is weakened and the bulk of the dust you and others kick up will want to settle on the outside of the back window and the cargo area.

By having a window venting system, or better yet, a flip-out windshield like I do, you can change the pressure in the passenger compartment by opening to the first open (vent in) position, keeping nearly all debris outside the cab, and mainly behind the rear window and beyond.

My doors when on are not the tightest, and I doubt that many of the other door/cab options offer really tight seals, the dirt will get in regardless of whether your doors or on or not.

Hope that helps..

Pure Polaris, and EMP. Looks to me like the only difference is the latch systems used. I have the Polaris, and it works great, 3000 miles trail riding and no scratches.
