So Yamaha decided NOT to sell the windshields for the 2016 Grizzly and Kodiak here in the USA.. Why , so more people would buy the LE model.
You lucky Canadians can choose from Blue , Green , Red , or Camouflage..
I called Yamaha USA last week and after 3 more phone calls , and MUCH persistence I talked to someone who was able to help..
45 min conversation included me pointing out many flaws with the decision to withhold the windshields from us..
I concluded with I would get a green windshield no matter what , whether they sold it to me , or I have a Canadian friend mail it to me. If they refused to sell me one , then when I got it I would show it to America on my youtube channel , and bad mouth Yamaha the whole time... Or they could sell them here in the USA , and I would Show it on my youtube channel and talk Yamaha up , as I have been..
I added , I had over 3 times more views of the 2016 Grizz than Yamaha USA has on thier Youtube channel.
They called me back today ,, WINDSHIELDS WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE to Americans too now ! Expect them on thier website in 10 days or less !
Thank You Yamaha!
My dealer , who told me last week good luck with that ,, just laughed today...

I bought the SE and needed a windshield. I do a lot of late season hunting and ice fishing. It makes s huge difference. After I bought the SE I was really bummed that I could not get one for my wheeler yet. I'm contemplating buying one of the colored ones and getting it painted but not quite sure I want to go that route. I suppose the camo one wouldn't look horrible but I don't think that I want to do that. The SE looks really sharp and I hate to put something on it that doesn't look good.

Way to be persistent POHLHAMMER. It is crazy the variety of Grizzlies sold around the world from US, Canada, Sweden, Australia and on and on. Same goes for the Canadian Overfenders that cost us an arm and leg to get.
There's a steal of a deal on the bay right now for a Tamarack front box WITH windshield. I'm not a windshield guy, however I was contemplating how to make the box work, ha.
Post up pics when you get the green windshield, that will be a new one for me.

Seemed they did not have much a argument to debate on this one...
I think when I pointed out Can Am sold 3 different windshields ,, I may have hit a nerve..
Either way , yes it is nice to be heard , even if I am still shocked it needed to be said.
Thanks to Yamaha !

I think a quad looks goofy with a windshield but I was actually considering it for cold weather riding. I could def see an advantage.

How fast do you troll while ice fishing to need a windshield?

I prefer / like not having it on until the weather turns cold , mine will be on fall and early spring as soon as things warm up its coming off . If I rode in a warm weather climate I'd never have a windshield .

Got one

Not the same as what Canada gets ...
But.... much taller , wider , see thru Everywhere vrs only in center. AWESOME QUICK DETACH feature , leaves only a sm bracket on either side of handlebars. Nice rubber mounts so, NO MORE SCRATCHING your paint off the handlebars .
I like , ,not sure on how it will hold up yet , as its aa tad flimsy....?
