Default I need some help on a windshield

I have a 13 CC and the stock windshield is not a option for me at 6'3.

So do I get the +3 or the +5 I like the +3 better due to the mounting brackets but once I order I owned it..

Also is the 2 inches that much in difference?


So will the +3 deflect enough air for me at 6'3 inseam 3?

Dealer said he could get the KLOCK WERKS but not the Cee Baileys

Thanks

Or tried the Madstad brackets with the stock shield first. Totally adjustable and if the don't work, you can still use with a new shield.

I'm 6'4" with a 35 inch inseam, sitting against the wall I measure about 37" from the floor to the top of my head. With a +4 , I see over the windshield fine, and have very little, if any buffeting with my current Gustafsson with a Euro Flip. Also have a Cee Bailey Dragon 19 which is mostly length not height. Height wise its about a + 4. This shield works realy good also, and I use it mostly in the winter, because it seems to give me a little more overall wind blockage. Only issue I have with the Cee Dragon is because of the length, it rattles some when going down a rough road.

Thank you for the detail answer I have not looked at them until now and not a bad looking shield, I'm not sold on putting on the Madstad brackets unless it is a have too....

Having gone through 2 different windshields BEFORE getting the Madstad Brackets, I would do the brackets first and then do a shield IF you still need to. I was worried about how they'd look at first but now I don't even know they're on there and have had many compliments about them since.

I have the Madstad windshield system, Victory lowers, and the JTD Cycle Parts Lowers on my 2010 Cross Country. When I put on the JTD lowers, it made the cockpit extremely calm...no more windblast from below. Then I tried it without the Victory lowers and only the JTD lowers...got quite a bit more windblast from below that moved my helmet around again. Replaced the Victory lowers and calm cockpit again. Still plenty of air movement, but no more air blast. So this combination of lowers and windshield works. Bike is a joy at city and highway speeds. I also tried 3 different type windshields with the Madstad system being the best so far before installing the JTD lowers.
Just my two cents...

I am confused about your statement "without the Victory lowers and only the JTD lowers". Wouldn't the Victory soft lowers cover up the JTD hard lowers and render them pointless, or is there some other combination that I am unaware of ?

Also, I currently have the Klock Werks FLARE shield, and am wondering how that would work with the Madstad brackets. Does anyone have this specific combo?
