    Windscreen height

    A recent post made me think of where "should" the windscreen be placed. I have the top of it about eye height when I'm in the saddle and that ends up being at the uppermost position. But I have to say my head is still being buffeted which causes a lot of fatigue after even only a couple hours in the saddle. I'm only 5'8" (173 cm). You have to figure taller folks would have an issue with the bike...so how high "should" it be?

    If your @ 5-8” I would say the screen is too high. I’m 5-10” and never fully extent the wind screen.

    Stock windscreen? I use the CalSci and get zero buffeding.
    There's nothing like looking when you're trying to find something.

    Did you go through the Calsci height thingy? Boiled down, the top of the screen should be in a line from your eyes in your normal riding position and a mark on the street 45 feet in front of you. So, after reading that, I definitely have the screen too high. The C600 only has 3 position adjustment, so I'll drop it one spot. When I see yours I may opt of a calsci after I see how it differs from stock (Calsci actually doesn't list the C600, but I suspect one for a C650GT would do just fine).

    I am 5'9" and got the medium. All the way down I get air just down to the bottom of my helmet which is perfect for venting. Just below eye level - no wind. All the way up for my pillion to get no air buffeting.

    Paced off 15 steps (about 45 feet) from the front wheel and looked. Top of the screen is a bit below the 45 foot spot in my normal riding position with the screen in the middle spot with the stock screen. Took a ride around the block. Wind is striking me just above my eyes (can tell because I wear a half helmet and today it was COLD out riding). I already know that higher has wind buffeting me; so I'll try in the middle spot for a while. Bike sure does look more sporty with it lower.
