Tall Shield is how much taller than stock shield?

Does anyone know how much taller the 'tall' shield is over the stock shield? I plan on placing an order for a CeeBailey shield but need to know what my starting height is!

Thanks
dave

If you want a "guess", here's one. I asked one of the BMW demo leader riders at Daytona bike week that question, he told me that there "about" was two inches difference. Let me qualify that by saying I don't know whether he was a BMW employee, or a contract worker, and whether he really knew. I've not seen the regular shield.

I'd suggest calling Cee Bailey and tell them exactly what you're looking for. For all I know they might be using the tall shield as a reference too?!

I have the tall windshield. It's about 6 cm / 2 inches higher than standard. That's what I was told by the dealer.

Take care!

Calling CeeBailey's was my first thought, but the first two people I spoke with didn't know the answer. I finally spoke with someone who wasn't certain that it was a 'stock' or 'high', but did confirm that the picture they are using as a reference for the 'stock shield' is 22 1/2" tall. So when I measure mine tonight I will know which shield they have in there pic's!

I have the tall, it is 24 7/8" from top to point. Making it about 2 " taller that standard.

This is what Cee Baily has on their site, re size of "standard" windshield:

BMW K1200 GT 2006 & UP Windshield
Stock BMW K1200 GT 2006 & UP Windshield:
height: 22.5" tall- when measured along centerline
width: 23" at its widest point

I measured my tall screen: it is 63 cm high (24.8") and 60 cm wide (23.6").

The Cee Bailey's website says the tallest is +6" high and +3" wide: this would mean it is only 3.7" higher than the tall screen: I am wondering if that is enough, especially since the screen doesn't seem to have a 'lip' at the top? Will it get the windflow over my head? I'm 6'2" (185 cm)? Does Cee Bailey offer even taller screens, like a +8"?

Aside from Cee Bailey, there is Aeroflow and Parabellum: any news from those guys?

I am really in need of a taller screen, so craving for your experiences on those, as in Europe the aftermarket seems slower to respond than the US aftermarket...
