My 2010 medium height measures 20-1/2" from the headlight cutout to the top. Short and tall versions are -3" and +3".

To help you decide what height you prefer, place a piece of tape horizontally across the w/s a bit below the top and ride. Is your line of sight above or below? Move the tape until the top of the tape is where you'd like the top of the w/s to be. That's the height! Hint: Fold the ends of the tape to make it easy to peel it off.
Editorial: If it were me, I'd draw a line with a Sharpie just above the trim line and cut along just beneath it slowly with a saber saw. File and sand the edge with sandpaper- using finer and finer grits. Beats the price of a new w/s. Capice?

I am running the OEM short windshield and it works great for me. My XR had the medium shield at the dealer ship but the top cut right at eye level. I am 6'1" tall but all legs with a short torso so the shorty does fine. I also like the looks of the shorter windshield.

Al true but I'm looking to go tinted at the same time...So I might go with the Cee-Baiey short /dark. I just like a short shield in general, and as TNXR said I like the "look" of them also.

I had forgot all about 7JuRock. Their prices are very reasonable! I may have to look into getting a tall windshield for any long trips on the interstate. Even though the shorty works for me, it doesn't for my better half on the interstate. Wind goes right over me at 75 mph but pushes against her pretty bad.

I have a medium for sale in the want ads. I'm 5'8", and when I used it the size was great for me.
Want ads? Huh? I looked everywhere there are things for sale with nada results. Why don't you just say what you want for it here and post a photo?
