    Yamaha does not have much choice for a taller windshields for the Sidewinder. No surprise there. A/C seems to have several choices. I'm looking for mid-height. Anyone put an A/C windshield on a Sidewinder? Which one? How about A/C side deflectors?

    Hi Mike, how does that windshield do with deflecting wind for your hands? I'm on windshield #3 (Thundercat version) and using hand guards to keep my digits from freezing and would rather have a windshield that doesn't need hand guards.

    I love it actually! Excellent wind protection for face, body and hands. I was told it's shaped the way it is because Yamaha was not happy with the Cat shields and the way the Cat shields bend at speed and lack of protection.

    I don't see a crosstrek in the 2017 a/c accessories catalog. I see a mid 11, mid 14, and LXR 13. Anyone using any of these windshields?

    Good point on the AC with the built on mirrors. Will the Cat mirrors fit the SW mid height. Yamaha wants $150+ for mirrors where cat is asking $50-60.

    Is this the smoked or clear (can't be certain from the picture)? Do you know if this is the same windshield that the DX has? Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure it's the same shield that comes on the DX.
