Just recieved a 2 piece windshield for my Pioneer 700-4 and it came with no instructions. A note in the box says to go to the Honda website and downloada PDF of the instructions ... the PDF is corrupt and you can't open it or download it. Any one have this problem also?

Thanks for your help! I also bought the 4P soft top ... I didn't know I would have to cut the top of the windshield to install the top. I was going to get a hardtop for it later but I don't want to cut the windshield if it is going to make the hardtop not fit properly. what would you suggest?

I hate to hear that. Any way to return the soft top or sell it? Maybe even here on the forum and get the hard top. I'd hate to have to cut that windshield. Do the instructions on the soft top tell you not to transport with the roof on? If so that's reason enough to get the hard top.

I'd suggest returning the soft top and getting the hard now if possible. sounds like you were planning to do that at some point, but having to trim the windshield for the soft top seems like the the motivation to go poly now.

re:

The soft top does have to be removed when trailered ... I am assuming the hard top does but what about the windshield? I'll be ordering the hardtop soon!

The hard top does not need to be removed to trailer it. Mine was delivered by trailer with it on.

I was told not to go more than 45MPH with the hard top on mine when I picked it up yesterday. I trailered it home doing 40MPH all the way.

My dealer brought mine down the interstate. So I know mine has gone at least 65.

In this cold tho, that poly is probably pretty brittle. I think 40 was a good idea

I pull mine with the windshield and hard top on the interstate. I leave my doors on and roll down the windows and roll them up. I roll the rear panel up also. I take a buggie and wrap it around the door post of the front and rear doors. Normally I stay at 70 or below. So far so good. lol

I have a soft top and I am going to use snaps to attach the tip to the windshield. I should have pictures on Tuesday. I am also having a custom soft top made with see thru sun roof made and it should be done Tuesday also. I will post pictures then. FOr thoses interested I see that Kolpin now makes a split front windshield and a hard rear back panel for the pioneer.

I just put the windshield on yesterday and got the instructions from their website without issue. Try to download again. Windshield is pretty easy. You do have to drill though for the push pins. If you have other questions ask away.

I attempted to install the 2 piece windscreen on my 700 -4, this past weekend...it seemed like the lower windshield brackets were too far apart. As i was trying to "flex" the windscreen into place one of the rubber grommets popped out.
I stopped at that point to make sure I had the right windscreen (it is correct). I just wanted to ask if that tight of a fit is normal before I proceeded...

Thank you, in advance, for any help!

Welcome to the forum. They are tight but I haven't had one tight enough to force the bracket loose from the windshield. Did you pull the bolts out of the roll bar when trying to install it? The side net buckle bracket is on the outside of the roll cage and not installed wrong on the inside correct?

I remember when I put mine on this spring, that the brackets attached to the windshield were placed on backwards. After turning them around and throwing away the directions (they could really be alot better, which I understand is the same for most of the Honda Accessories), it went on pretty easy. The only thing I wish that was in the directions is a reference point to place the bracket that keeps the window open. I just kind of guessed on its location and it seems to be working fine, but a measurement from a roof bar bolt or something would be very useful.

Thank you for the welcome! And the responses...

I did remove the bolts prior to inserting the windshield. The net buckle is on the inside of the rollcage. It should be on the outside?
I did think about swapping the brackets on the windshield so that the right angle of the brackets are towards one another and not away. Is that the way they should be anyway?

Thank you!

Moving the net brackets to the outside did the trick...windshield is installed and is working!
The brackets lead me to another question, are the nets side specific?

Once again, thank you for the help and quick response!
