Default Windshield question

Quick question - is there a windshield approximately 1 -2 shorter than the Ness Flip windshield. I installed a 21" rim and now my windshield is right in my line of sight. I would really like something tinted.

Thanks

Check out 7jurock. I just got a flip shield custom made from them. DON'T go by just what their web site says because it's not entirely accurate. Call them, talk to Sonia and tell her what you want. They have a lite tint and the tint that I got which is color #2404.

The Flip I was running is 11+" tall(from the vent) I picked up a 10" WindVest from LILMAGS and there is more view over the top but the wind protection is actually better with the shorter WV.(plus it looks cool )
Here's two pics from about the same angle

+1 on what VJ is saying... How did raising your front end change the height of your windshield???? Not to be rude but that makes no sense. Your height didn't change so unless you shrunk there is no way the windshield height has changed. I added a 21" front wheel and lowered my rear 1.5" and nothing about my windshield changed at all...

raising the front of the bike with the wheel will raise the entire front, including the windshield height, same with lowering the rear.

Drew... It raises the height of the windshield from the pavement... It doesn't raise it from the seat height. You sit on the bike not the pavement.

yes and no, seat height stays about the same but like a teeter totter the front end sits higher, so yes it raises the height of the shield
