Default Windshield Size

What is the standard ws size? I got my '05TC with the ws already shaved down to about 18 in. for the previous owner who was apparently vertically challenged. It caused so much buffeting I had to take it off. Would like to get the correct size for the fall.

My 03 TC came stock with a 23" windshield. I am 6'0" and that was too tall for me. Came right up to my line of sight which was very hard to ride with. I was constantly stretching to look over it.

So I had one made to order from www.7jurock.com. I had it cut at 20" which comes right to the tip of my nose. It works great and I can always see over it comfortably but still get the wind protection too.

The tip of the nose is how the fitment charts show it. Sit upright with all your weight on bike, loaded like you would ride. Have someone measure from the tip of your nose to the ground. Usually windshield manufacturers measure from the top of the headlight cut out to the top of the shield (check with the maker of the brand you're looking at). Measure from the top of the headlight housing to the ground (still sitting on bike). subtract the 2 numbers and pick a shield closest to it.

Thanks for the info guys.
Marvin, I am around 6 feet also so I will probably be about the same torso size, but I will still do the measurement to see what should be the correct size.

Like Pheonix said they measure it from the headlight cutout to the top of the shield. So that 3" shorter version I got turns out to be about 1-1/2" vertically due to the slant of the windshield.

I worried about it after I ordered it about whether I should have ordered 21" instead of 20" but 20" turned out to be perfect for me. And 7jurock had the windshield on my doorstep exactly 7 days after ordering it online. You use the same hardware that comes on the factory windshield.
