One is like a clear plastic fabric and the other is hard, if I am not mistaken. I guess Honda has to honor the posted price even if its a mistake. If you were thinking about buying, now is the time.

The hard coating is a process that put they put polycarbonate through to keep it from scratching easily. It will still scratch but not as easily. The F-14 fighter jet canopies are made of hard coat polycarbonate.

Its not that they have to honor the pricing mistake on their site, it is in all their computers. I went into the dealer and asked how much for the hard coat and they gave me the $379 price quote, so I said order it and paid for it in full. It arrived and no one knew the difference.

Yes I feel a little quilty but I wont loose any sleep. Moderators if you feel this thread is inappropriate feel free to delete it.
By the way this mistake is only on the Pioneer Windscreens in Canada.

Big Dick, I split it off into a new thread and took care of the other one. There was enough info to make it a good thread yet showing the windshield.

Did you get it installed yet? I'd like to see a picture of what it looks like once its all set-up. And I'm also wondering if it is at all difficult to install too. I'm guessing it's just some screws.

I will not be back to where I have it until the weekend, I can take some pics then.

They are not hard to install they use these quick clamps for the most part, took about 1/2 hr to install.

If you ever want to know what all is involved in installing the honda accessories just go to Honda Genuine Accessories and Gear - Honda Powersports then put in your make and model, find the accessory your looking for and click on it. At the bottom it will say installation instructions. It will be like the link below and download a PDF installation guide. The one below is for the full windscreen.

Here are the pictures I said I would take of the windscreen installed. I have gone through some heavy brush and so far no scratches. It makes a night and day difference now that the cold weather is here.
I had to lower the quality of the pictures in order to upload them here.

You know what would work well if you do end up through some puddles or get water on it. Just add some rain X to the windshield and the water will bead right off and no waterspots or stains.

Looks good by the way ;)

Thanks Thunderun, I was going to put rain x on it but I read that it will cause these types of windshields to go foggy. I see that they make a special rain x for these windshields for boats but I have not found any yet. When I ran prostock racecars with lexan windshields I would use car wax on them, you need to make sure the windshield and soft rags are clean. The wax worked well especially after they got scratched some. Nothing worse than a scratched windshield when the sun is in your eyes.
I like this forum, you can tell that the people here are going to do a lot of customizing and sharing and showing what they do, its half the fun.

Some of the older side by sides would create somewhat of a suction with a front windshield on and it would bring dust/air back into the cab between the bed and front seats. Have you noticed anything like that?

I have not noticed any dust yet but it has not been very dusty. I have noticed since I put the windshield on that when going fast the draft does seem to come at you from the back. I was wondering why anyone would want a 2 piece windshield but now I am thinking I probaly should have got the 2 piece. If the dust does get bad maybe the cloth panel that goes behind the front seats would cure that problem because I do plan to buy the hardtop roof. If it gets too hot in the summer the windsheild is held on by quick clamps and will come off in about a min.

never noticed that, might be because my lack of ATV/UTV riding. Maybe the reviewers will report on this or already did.

I know on the BR it would do that with just the full windshield. Adding the rear curtain took care of the problem. It really sucked when riding through very light snow..lol I was wondering if the design of the pioneer helped with that or not.

Can confirm the Big Red would definitely suck dust up in to the cab without the side / rear curtains on. At times it would be difficult to even open your eyes. Have not experienced anything near that so far with the Pioneer. I assume the designers took some of the negative BR feedback in to consideration. Hard to believe that issue wasn't addressed in the original BR design.
