I'm picking up my '19 SS SE a week from Monday. My dealer has the factory flip windshield in a box for me. I'm having second thoughts about it though. Read about the nightmare install problems. Dealer wants $275 to install it. I don't want to have over $700 invested in a windshield.

I'm leaning towards the SuperATV flip shield. I like that it has the bottom part and I can take the top part off for summer if I want.

If you have one on your '19 let me know how you like it. Thanks.

Have one on my 19. It seals out air very well. Completely out of the way when its hot out. Dont know about other makes. Install it yourself, not that hard, just be patient. Who's your dealer? Mine was Penco.

SuperATV makes great stuff. Last week I got their Honda Talon version for a customer. The Yamaha windshield is great too. You can't go wrong with either one.

You have the SuperATV flip up or Yamaha OEM flip onto roof? My dealer is Black Hill Powersports in Rapid City.

I have a superatv on my 2016 since december of 2016. Only complaint ive ever had with it is after some time of leaving it open the little assist rams to hold it open get some slop in the ball ends and cause it to rattle. I ended up adding a few short bungee cords to it to keep a slight amount of tension on it and stopped the rattling. It was almost 2 years before this happened and i ride with it up 80% of the time in very rough trails. I hit it off branches constantly and only have some minor scratches, just make sure you dont wipe the mud off but pressure wash or hose the heavy off before you scrub it.

Not sure if this could be an issues to watch out for on the 19 with the factory rear radiator but i just recently relocated mine to the rear and going down roads at 45-55mph with the windshield closed i will eventually overheat like the turbulence causes a dead space of air that the fans cant overcome. Just something to watch for.

Cooling is definitely not an issue with the '19. I have the rear windshield as well as the front. The Adventure Pro GPS can display water temp and Max temp I've hit is 205.

I feel some heat from the rad when OEM windshield down, but only have in the down position when its cooler out. When the temp hits 205 fans come on and cools immediately. Will be getting a flash to include having fans engage at lower temp. Dont like it running near 200 but thats how they designed this motor.

Go for it! Save your money and install it yourself. We've got a tech team standing by to walk you through it if you have any questions. Pretty easy really. We have some different install videos and it comes with instructions.
Pro tip: Soak the seal in hot water before installing. It softens it and makes it easier to slide and tap onto the windshield. Also, that's not a really big one but it can help to have another pair of hands to get the windshield into position. Shoot me a PM if you want to pull the trigger. I'll get you a little discount.

My DASA tune turns the fans on early. Most of the time I'm between 180-190.

I love my Super ATV 3in1. Watch what seals you put where. The bottom seal is straight, the roof seal is angled. Also do not listen to the instructions that say "Do not use seal if you have a roof." The instructions could be better, but other than that I love my windshield. 2019 YXZ 1000R SS
I usually tool around with it in the "vent" position. But if the terrain allows I open it all the way. No noticeable engine temp increase so far.

Didn't realize it said that. I'd go with the seal there too. Also, it helps to soak the seals in hot water before installing them. It softens them up and its easier to slide them on.

I just installed this Super ATV flip up windshield on our 2019 1000R SS with no rear windshield installed.... I'm having problems with MAJOR exhaust fumes with the windshield installed versus no windshield at all. Does anyone one else have this issue??? wanted to return it because literally was installed and ran 200 yards before having a major headache and smelling like exhaust - the company was not helpful at all!!!! and was not concerned about my issue

Do you think the windshield effected the flow of your exhaust? Any time you have a front windshield, there's always a bit of a wind vortex that can make dust swirl in the cab. I bet that's what you are experiencing. If you put the windshield in the vented position, it should help with the airflow in the cab. A rear windshield will also help maintain cab pressure when the windshield is completely shut. You wouldn't be have those options with a standard full windshield. Keep it vented, when possible or maybe look into a rear windshield to help maintain cab pressure.

I have a rear window. I have not had that experience. I did experience some overheating, with the window shut at full throttle full speed. but at 9,000 rpm in 5th gear with the window shut I expected some issues.

I have a 2020 XTR and decided to go the Super ATV route. The instructions for installing are OK but in the end its not that hard to due yourself. I did have a few miss steps when installing it but if you take your time and wait until you have everything on before tightening everything down you can shift it around to get it to fit pretty good. I like that you can open and close it from the inside and you don't have to stop to open it all the way or close it from the fully open position. The only down side is if you need to get into the front hood to do something your going to have to remove the bottom windshield to be able to get the hood off. That shouldn't be that bad because all that needs to be done is remove the 4 screws that attach the lower windshield to the brackets on the roll cage.
