Default Windsheild for short guys 5'8" and below.

Ok I'm 5'7" - 5'8" 32" inseam long legs short torso!

What are you guys using?
I tried a Ness flip today and it works well hear radio a bit better but it is just a bit too tall I bearly look over it. I see the road about 50 ft or more in front of me. Is there anything shorter?

I'm 5'7" and I use the Ness short (blacked-out) flip and it works great. I use it 90% of the time. I hear the music just fine unless there's a lot of wind. The other 10% is when I use a touring windshield from Cee Baileys; I look through that one.

Well mines on a Magnum which is taller up front lowered in the rear and my seat is about an inch lower too. So on my bike it may seem an inch or two taller than others? Lol

If you compare your Ness flip to the stock XC it is actually +1" or so as well as a flip. I am 5'9" and that setup plus a 1" lowered seat is the bomb. No buffeting... Music is clear to 75 mph with stock setup. I can't wait to have a big stereo and hear all the way to triple digits!

I use the Klockwerks Flip and I'm 5'-9". I look over it by a good bit but still get good protection from the wind/rain and no buffeting. I think at your slightly shorter height, you would also look over it and get even better wind protection.

G'day,

P.hunt post a pic of Ness flip on your XC... Something sounds fishy. I am 5'9" with a 31" inseam and I see over my Ness flip by a good 6-7". I think you got the wrong shield delivered to you!
