    Tinted or not? Vented or not? My only concern over vented is that the vents may generate wind noise
    I just spoke with Slingmods and they don't have a 2020 windshield. The F4 doesn't currently work for the 2020. I thought that was the one!

    My F4 windshield DOES work on my 2020 RT Limited. I have the standard height, but extra wide vented shield that I installed on my 2014 RTS. The transfer to my new Spyder did require different rubber grommets for the mounting holes which were graciously provided by F4.

    That's interesting. The guys there said it wouldn't, but you are the second person I've heard that says their F4 does fit.

    Hey Don, I'm glad you cleared that up. I really think I need a new/different windshield. The original OEM is generating a great deal of wind noise/roaring through the holes on my 2020 RTL. I covered them and it got much quieter. When I removed the covers, the noise came back. I am looking at this shield: https://www.slingmods.com/canam-spyd...toms?vehicle=1 Do you think that would that solve my issue? It's a lot of coin if it doesn't. I know the OEM is 25" and I am thinking of the 28" for a little more wind protection and less buffeting from big trucks. But it seems to me (my opinion only) that more shield would catch more wind like a bigger sail. Thoughts?

    WingmanRT, Kim and I both ride spyders, me on a F3T and she has a RT. Kim prefers the plus 3 with a vent. This is 28" tall or 3" taller than stock and 5" wider. Remember if you go with a taller shield and wider you still have the adjustment. When I ride the RT and I am 6' tall, I ride with it up most of the time unless we are in slow traffic and then sometimes I move it down and look over to get a little more air. We live in Florida so sometimes you need that extra air.
    Give me a call anytime at 941-347-7496 and I would be glad to discuss the options with you.

    Don, I contacted SlingMods and I believe they contacted your company. My only questions at this point are: I am also thinking about the 28" tinted. Does the vent (when open) generate a lot of wind noise? That is what I am trying to avoid. The other question is that the F4 28" shield will fit on my 2020 RTL with no modifications? I believe I can replace the shield, but am leery of any drilling, etc.

    I did not realize that you guys sold direct.

    Thanks in advance.

    Does anyone make plugs to fill those holes in the 2020 windshield?

    I couldn't find any but that doesn't mean they're not out there. I ended up buying a new F4 windshield. Pretty pricey solution, but I couldn't stand that wind noise any more.

    Yes the older RT shields we sold fit just fine on the 2020 RT. Also you will not get any noise out of the 5 position adjustable vent that we put in them. No drilling just take the old shield of and re-install. We sell direct but also have great dealers out there as well.
