Over the years, we have seen lots of RT windshield arms break, it's unfortunate and an expensive adventure if your Spyder is not under warranty. BRP sells this arm as a "kit" and depending where you buy it, cost may run you anywhere from $600 to $700 plus labor. Since the rest of the parts don't need to be changed, we are offering a solution by providing the arm by itself. Made from a solid aluminium block.

The replacement part is exactly what I was expecting it to be great quality and workmanship if any thing on this windscreen breaks it won’t be this part

The unit is well constructed. I am sure it will outlast the rest of the bike, but... there are no instructions included, and this is a tedious project at best. Another supplier (in Austrailia) includes some "wedges" that can be used to remove the pulley on the end of the shaft. Without them, it is a bit daunting, but can be done. There was not even a piece of paper or anything showing the orientation of the part for installation, or a mention of the proper allen wrench needed to tighten it. (And if you are doing this, be sure to put some locktite on the allen set screw, because you really do not want to go looking for it if it falls out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The replacement arm was perfectly machined all of solid aluminum. The ID was tight on the windshield end and we had to ream it. Otherwise it went in flawlessly. Upon reassembly the whole windshield is much sturdier than originally designed. Unbelievable Product.
