I just recently took delivery of a victory cross country flip up windshield from the states. Delivery was prompt and windshield arrived in Brisbane Australia safely, thanks. However on my first mid distance ride of about 400km it started cracking from the lower mounting bolts, as if I may have overtightened when installing (stress fractures). I believe this is not neccessarily the case and upon further inspection I have noted the thickness is about 1mm thinner than the original blade windshield and the plastic appears to be of a lower quality.
It is a shame Polaris can manufacture such a good and terrific machine, however the accessories, namely windshield is of poor quality, especially for Australian road conditions. I am now in the process of looking for a plastic fabricator to either repair the windshield or preferrably make me a new one by using this one as a mould and changing it's style a little to suit my requirements.
My question is has any one had any problems with this type of windshield and have any positive suggestions. Cheers.
I've compared this Windshield to the Lock & Ride shield I have on the Kingpin and found it to be a lot thinner. My original thoughts were that it was a poor copy of what the Polaris shield. I latter found out that it is the Polaris shield.
Any one in Brisbane (or SQLD) knows of a good place to repair or replace the shield?
