Flip up has more options. Ours can be fully open, fully closed, or vented to let in airflow. A flip down is pretty nice too, but doesn't offer the different options. Plus, you have to get out and strap down a flip down, while the flip up can be managed while you're sitting in the seat. We sell a hell of a lot of flip up windshields, but the hunters that hunt out of the seat of the machine seem to prefer the flip down for that reason.

The flip up windshields from SuperATV are great. The only downside depends on your line of sight. Im 6'2" and sometimes the gap between the two was in the way.

Do you know when they'll be back in stock? I'll called a couple of times and there seems to be no ETA.

Thanks

Just a heads up the soft upper doors from Kawasaki will not work with the flip up window from SuperAtv without heavy modifications fyi.

just purchased a new krx and wanted the extended fenders.. purchased the mud package that with the dealer 20% discount.. was a bargain.. but the full glass windshield does not come with any vents.. this is a much needed option..
considering using the defrost vent knock outs and piping in some outside air to to help rid the back draft... anyone

Yes
Back draft is terrible, Kawasaki needs to rethink this, funny you say cause I have spent today working on solution. I got new full exhaust and now it to leaks up inside can, recently added back window.. so really get backdraft.
I am going to try the cabin closure upgrade Kawasaki is selling but it's out of stock. Go figure. Look them up suppose to help.

I have the seizmik full window with 2 versa cents in them they help but again. Lots backdraft.

Here is the cabin part:

Just wanted to mention something about the flip up windshield. When it rains you will get water in the cab especially where the hinges are. Where the gap is located water comes just about dead center of the switches. I knew it wasn't going to be water proof but wanted to limit the flow of water from the gap as seen in the photo. I put in a strip of rubber along the gap under the hinges. That should stop the water. Maybe installing that at the factory would be something Super ATV would consider.

Hey Ajb9, any progress on routing the air through the defrost knockouts? I'm looking for a solution myself. I installed the cab seal kit and it was minimal help.

I didn't think the install was too bad. There were some of the pieces that I installed then pulled them off, I didn't like the way they were rubbing on my doors. I think you could go down to your local hardware store and buy some sort of foam weather strip and get the same effect. The rubber pieces under the seats seemed to go in easy and will probably work OK. I'm not sure if I had it to do over again, I would buy the kit though.

I always wondered why people dont vent top of roof with a flip up vent? Like an old farm truck or sumthing? As long as no rain it would be great??
