Default CCT windshield options?

I ordered one of those 7jurock shields. Looks great but the top is right in my line of sight annoying me.
I did measure and ordered the shortest they offer.
Can't go lower because the CCT brackets.
So what do I do?
Tour shield doesn't bother me except in the rain and I'm blind.
Bike seems to ride much better without that giant thing too.

If you get a Klockwerx flip windshield you remove the stock windshield mounts. Maybe that would be low enough for you.

Do I need different brackets?
I know fairing is same for the cross bikes but didn't really pay attention to the windshield until now.

I'm really a bit upset with myself when I measured this I used a piece of tape stuck where it looked good. I didn't ride far enough to really settle into the more relaxed position. D'oh.

I did all those cheap "custom" windshields. SOLD THEM ALL. Either the quality was bad, but more often than not the optics sucked.

I finally went with the Cee Bailey's original but a custom height...NEVER LOOKED BACK. Works perfectly and couldn't be happier.

I thought you could swap the brackets, that the shorter (non-tour) brackets would bolt up to the same holes, then you could use whatever shield you wanted.

No, you don't need the brackets that come stock with the Tour. Those brackets were only added to that model to support the barn-door windshield that came with it. If you remove the brackets, your fairing is the same as the Cross Country, and you can mount any of the dozens of windshields for that model, directly to the built-in metal strips on the fairing (the ones that the extra XCT brackets attached to).

When I ordered my (now sold) XCT, I had the dealer install -- as part of the uncrating process -- a Klockwerks Flare, instead of the stocker (because I knew the stock was too tall, and I'm a look-over rider, not a look-through rider). When I picked up the bike, he presented me with the brackets and the stock windshield, and all the bolts and washers, etc. Put them in the car, and my wife drove home and I rode the bike home.

I sold the stocker and brackets, and a year later sold the Flare and installed a Madstad system. The Flare was nice, and worked well for me, but it only works well in a limited height/torso range: too short, and you look through the curved lip, and too tall and you get buffeting. And I wanted to try something different, anyway. The Madstad works well, is available in assorted sizes, but a lot of folks think it's fugly. So remove the stock brackets, and you can try all sorts of windshields, including, I assume, different 7Juroc sizes. Try three or four, and you're still spending way less money than, say, a new exhaust system. Good luck.

If you can find someone with a Klockwerx flare, that might be ideal for you. It is just tiny bit too low for me and you are bit shorter than me so it might be perfect. As noted, it mounts to the fairing holes without the large stock windscreen brackets.

Making me feel all vertically challenged now.

I ordered a madstad this morning.

I'll get over the weird looks if it functions as well as they claim. I like what I was reading about adjusting it for different riding conditions.
Not sure how well those work 2up but I will probably never find a passenger so not worried on that at the moment. I'll just keep the tour shield.
