yes I would say move it up. If you don't like it move it down.
Why ask us we can't say what would be best for you

When I had my C bikes set for touring wind management was more controlled by angle than height-when the angle of the shield matched the forks rake it seemed best to me-add some lowers by Memphis or Rifle and soft lowers on your crash bars and it's as good as it gets with a tombstone shield-next step up would be a batwing.

excellent info, i read somewhere the top of windshield should be same height as the rider's nose tip. currently, its at my collarbone, i dont think i can move it too match my nosetip, its too small!
prev owner musta been a smaller guy.

Yeah, I have the same problem so I jacked the windshield as high as it would go. Less wind buffeting the head but more air coming from around the headlight. I have a Vetter Windjammer III in the loft, I wonder if it would fit..........

To simultaneously achieve the maximum wind blockage and visibility, the windscreen should come to just about where you say - tip or bridge of nose. You want to look OVER the windscreen in your normal riding posture. After a long day in the saddle, it is normal to slouch a bit so maybe tip of nose is best. Sounds like you need a taller windscreen.

G'day,
