Yes they make a Cobra for the 18'+ and is the same for the Yamaha. The drilling holes was in reference to the 12'-17' Cobra fitting the 18'+ whuch I said "there is no reason to drill holes when they make one for the 18'+"


And keep in mind you do not need to paint the entire back of the windshield black, you can paint as much as you want and the fade to nothing if you want the top few inches or more clear.

After a long day, I really hate getting back on the sled after eating dinner and having to endure a cold ride for an hour or two or more before getting back to our cabin so a taller windshield would be more appealing in that respect too. I know I know Iím becoming a wuss. Ive searched on here and have read many threads on different ideas but there arenít many pictures to actually see what a certain windshield will look like on the new body. Also do the older windshields fit the new body? Iíve read some posts that say yes they fit and others that say they fit but you have to drill holes. If any of you have a pic of newer sleds with taller than stock windshields could you please post them along with a part number? Oem or aftermarket is fine and btw if anyone racing cross country knows what the new sleds are using to race that would be good too. I saw a post on arctic insider about the 2015 rxc sled and they used a tallish mid height windshield part number 6606-513 that actually looks good so Iíd be interested in going that route if possible. Sorry for the long post and thank you.
59turbo,

Here is my '18 el tigre with High Clear Tinted windshield from cat, part #7639-383. I pulled this off before trading it in and will be putting it on my '20. For comparison, my wife's '15 has cats' high windshield as well.

I have the 6606-666 on both of my newer sleds a 15' and a 19' zr7000. However, I must have deleted any pics of the 19 with the taller shield.. This is of both of them the day I got the 19.. March of this year. Kevin

How much difference in the 2 windshields in that pic as far as height and wind protection? The one on the right is the medium shield that comes with the regular ZR correct?

I order the low cobra/power madd windshield on amazon, be here Monday, if I don’t like it I can always return it. I’ll post after fitting it on the sled & try to post a few pictures.
