They fog up on cool mornings. However they clear up after you clean them off. I don't have any problems with mine unless I go through a mud hole and steam the windshield with the exhaust.

I run my windshield all the time. I have not experienced the fogging on the RZR like I did on the Rhino. The Rhino seems to throw boatloads of steam inside the cab when you go through a waterhole.

Some cool night rides, cool mornings, but like LT, I ride with one all of the time. Look at the faces of those that ride mud and dust trails, which is most of the time, and have 1/2 or no windshields. That's what makes me glad to have a full shield.

Same her not much problem with fogging but be very careful what you clean with gotting something on mine and it put permanet fog on small area and you couldn't see a thing when sun shined directly on it, turned it into half windshield

I only clean with soap and water after a ride. Dry it, then use Plexus to coat it. When I get dust on it on the trail, I use a shami (spelling ?) that looks like a mop. Got it for a couple of bucks at Dollar General. The dust wipes right off. The same with some mud spots. The Plexus is expensive, but will keep the shield from scratching.

Get a fold-down. It's the best of both worlds, you can fold it down in the summer and leave it up in the winter.

If I was going with a full windshield I think I would do like little smith and go for the fold-down. I have a lower half and a upper half which I sometimes run in the winter which I have cursed on numerous occasions do to the way I ride it stays steamed up(I don't like to go around water/mud holes lol).

Just a personal-preference thing really. I like the halfs myself with the kick at the top. Granted, in rain or snow ,the full is the way to go. I guess a fold-down would be the best of both worlds.

I like the idea of a fold-down. However, I ripped mine in peaces when I hung it on a tree in the folded down position. It was my fault. I was not used to the size of the Rhino just yet Embarassed

Also, I have not seen a good quality fold-down. They tend to cloud up after time.

Sorry for the delay. I get my plexus from Yamaha of Louisville. Most motorcycle shops carry it, or can get it. It went up in price this year. I haven't used a whole can yet. My dealer gives me a little off.
