Arctic Cat has issued a bulletin regarding replacement of the clamps included with the 1/2 or Full windshield.

DATE: March 5, 2012
TITLE: Accessory Full and Half Windshield Clamps
This Letter Applies to:
YEAR: 2012
MODEL: Wildcat
ENGINE: 1000 cc

Issue:
Windshield C-Clamps (p/n 0541-021) which are included in the Full Windshield
Kit (p/n 1436-734) or Half Windshield Kit (p/n 1436-740) may crack
and break while installing or operating the vehicle.

Please contact customers that have purchased either windshield kit and

I went to pick up my cat last week and there were only two of the clamps that were not broke. I just got the new clamps in today, and put the windshield in going to see how the new clamps work tomorrow.

Hi Gang,I have about 300 miles on my wc. Here is my feedback. Machine is awesome and no worries about its performance and reliability for the most part. I get why AC chose the duro tires, light tires are cheap and help performance. However they are horrible. I and two other friends all got our cats at the same time and already have had two sidewall punctures. So plan on getting new tires. Also, do NOT get the 1/2 windshield. It looks cool but for most people of average height the bend for the upper lip of the windshield is in the worst possible spot. Severe distortion. Plus, it is a dust magnet and that only makes its functionality worse. Just for background we are in western Colorado and have been running the desert, hill climbing and rock crawling. Again, the machine is everything I expected. I'm just planning on new tires and storing a 1/2 windshield until the bad weather comes.

Should be, might check the date on the box and make sure it is a newer build. I think they were only like $12/4 if you need extras..
