    If you have a windshield, removing it helps big time.

    I have a split front windshield and plastic rear. I drop half of the front and all of the back but the dust keeps coming. Looks like under and behind the seats. A real mess.. None of the plastics fit tight in the floor area.

    Those are drain holes. Might not want to plug them.

    Your half windshield is creating a low pressure area by your feet that pulls dust in by door openings and rear opening. We have 2 SxSs with half shields and when I pull them off for dusty trail riding at St Anthony's, Sand Mountain, Dumont, Dove Springs it helps tremendously. If you can remove it easily, try it.....the low pressure area is greatly reduced without a half shield.

    If you put the rear window cover on [ the clear can am solid one not the screen type ] this will stop the low pressure condition and stop about 95% of your dust condition.

    I would definitely agree. A few RZR buds that have the full front windshield and solid back shields don't get near as dusted as one other guy with solid front and screen mesh rear does when we ride.
