Anyone know of any aftermarket windshield wiper kit that will work, just kinda hard to stomach $400 for a factory wiper with all the money I’ve dumped into it so far thanks for any info!

People will want to know what windshield you have. Though since you said $400 for Kawasaki you must have the Kawasaki glass?

For a hard coated polycarbonate windshield manual wipers are very cost effective. They work well enough.

Wished I could help more, but I can share this. I have a riding buddy with a Can Am X3 and he told me on his machine there are people using wiper motors from a donor vehicle from a junk yard. Meaning a readily available automobile wiper motor. I do not know what they use. I do not know what will work for a KRX. But your request is straightforward. If it would help, I have the KRX wiper kit and can provide details, provided I do not have to disassemble anything because I have weekend rides coming up. :)

Any wiper on a polycarbonate windshield will eventually scratch it, and my research indicates hard coated does not matter it will still happen.

Glass or nothing! Every plexiglass, polycarbonate, hard coated, don’t matter what plastic it will scratch.

I have the factory poly windshield but I would like to in the future to upgrade to a glass windshield

Thanks for sharing! Am interested for sure.

Buddy needs a wiper for OEM glass where it mounts at the bottom. Wonder if that would work?

This is my first glass windshield. I’ve run hard coated polycarbonate for years. They last a super long time.

Let me ask you this, where do you ride? I’m south of Pittsburgh PA and a lot of our trails are tight and lots of branches and jagger bushes so I’ll have a lot of crap hitting the windshield.
