I think they are about 2" different. I had an 09 crossfire r 1,000 that I put a "living room" window on. That was a warm window. LOl. This was today, I put the mirrors on. By the way, if you buy a windshield on ebay and they state it is new, with a slight scratch and it is from Als snowmobile warehouse. Do not buy it.. As you can see this one is scratched, and was on a sled at one time. Kevin

Thanks Kevin. Any issues putting it on, like having to drill new holes or anything? My current sled is a 2009 crossfire R 1000 also. I hope I donít miss the arm pull of the 1000, I know I wonít miss the ride in the bumps lol

No, I didn't drill any holes. There are tabs on the bottom side I bent and tucked them into the opening under the headlight. You will miss the arm pull of the 1000. You won't miss pulling it over when it gets around 0..Kevin

Just an FYI, the tall windshield I referenced earlier does require a hole drilled on each side of the pod. Dealer did it for me on my '18, I made a template of the '18 to use on my '20 and I'll drill the hole.

You can see the black dart the dealer put in the hole on my '18 sitting on his floor. Look at the 2nd green stripe in.

I have and tried all windshields on the old bodywork, I have several pre 2017 Procross machines and only 1 as of now gen II machine. I run mostly the Cobra/PowerMadd mid-height windshields and love them. My son (14) likes the Arctic Cat mid-height out of the acc. catalog but he is smaller.

Here’s a few pictures of a power madd low. I did have to return it because it was for old body work. They’re going to contact me when they have the right one available.

I like how that looks and it seems like it gives pretty good protection.
