Need a new/used windshield for my 91 Formula Mach 1. Right now, have one of the Kimpex 14", but it got cracked going thru a tunnel during the winter. Here is what it looked like before that incident.[attachmentid=20399]
I'm interested in a low cut windshield, like the one on this Mach 1:[attachmentid=20400]
Anyone in the Lake Simcoe/Orillia/Barrie/Sutton area who has one of these and doesn't want an arm and a leg for it, pvt msg me.

unless you go new i can't imagine finding used or even similar aftermarket.

Try J.T's snowmobiles in Angus, they have a ton of used stuff. Fun place just to wander around 1-800-465-5668

I know, they're really hard to find. I did manage to get a new Kimpex one at a really good price, but thing is, it's the same as my last one, 14". Those windshields are good for keeping the wind off, but I've smacked the front of my helmet off of them more than once in the moguls, esp. when you're not expecting the bump.
I'd like to try a smaller windshield. They offer another Kimpex one at Royal Distributing, but it is 12.5". It's probably lower because they flare it less.

I have one of these that fits a 95 mach 1, but I don't think it would fit yours.

Is there another company out there that does aftermarket windshields? Or other parts for that matter? It seems like everything I buy aftermarket says "Kimpex" on it.

have you tried royal distributing? i think i have noticed 3-4 different makes of windsheilds that they handle.

All those ones Royall Distributing offers are Kimpex, at least they appear on kimpex.com under "windshields". That includes Sportech and Cobra.
My friend has a 93 Formula Plus, looks the exact same as my sled, with a 583, and it has the same kind of low cut windshield as in that photo I posted earlier. I know the 14" on mine now, the cracked one, is a replacement, only because the Kimpex replacement I bought is the exact same, serial #s and all.
I wonder if those low cut windshields were OEM.

They aren't OEM. I had a 93 Formula Plus, red in color and had a purple windshield on it. I think it was Dennis Kirk but could be wrong.

GFID: I just purchased a 1991 formula mach 1 617 and with no snow have not had a chance to ride it. Do you like yours? And is there any info or opinions that you would like to share? Anything would be great!

I was looking for one this summer, Ski Doo no longer makes them. I have a 92 Mach 1 with that kind of windshield already on it, but it is cracked. I did find a used one, but it was $115. I ended up repairing mine. If you are interested, go to www.alssnowmo.com. They were the ones who had it.

Thanks, smallengineguy, I'll check it out.
Tski-doo12, in answer to you question, I love my Mach 1. BEfore this yr, the only sled I had owned was a 1981 Polaris Cutlass 440. The Mach1 has lots of pickup, lots of juice. Becuase of that, unfortunately, the track spins a lot. I'm looking into studs for next year.
I went thru a lot of plugs this year, but I think that has more to do with my oil injection system setup than anything else.
The only other complaint I have with the sled is the tight profile. I find that it feels very skinny to drive, especially going around tight corners. You can lean to one side all you want, and that ski will still lift off the ground, high.
Overall, I really like it. It's got lots of low end power, and I've had it up to 105 mph. Very reliable too. Except for eating spark plugs, VERY reliable.
