Favor from you fairing guys

I am considering putting a fairing on my strat and would like to know which is the tallest.

If all of you would measure from a common point (same one if possible) maybe from the 12 oclock position of the speed-0 to the top of the fairing (not the top of the windsheld, but the top of the fairing)

I am a tall guy and am looking for the tallest fairing out. This bit of info is not provided by the manufacturers.

Make sure to let me know what brand/model fairing you have and pics are a plus

Thanks

I have a Memphis shades batwing fairing I bought from bikerhaven.net in a neighboring state. Only paid $425.00 with free shipping. Includes the detachable brackets. They sell items for every make. Here's a pic of it on my 09' 950t. Hope this helps.

That diagram shoes 10" from the headlight opening to the top of the fairing..is that laid flat along the slope of the fairing or is that vertical?That could be more than 3" different.

When I was looking for a fairing I searched Hoppe, Premeux, Memphis and Tsukayu. I looked at all four fairings so I decided and bought the Tsukayu Classic fairing it's very nice and did my own personal touches like adding in a set of marine Polk speakers and a mini amp installed under the fairing. Sounds much better and like the wind factor that a fairing offers. As for Premeux nothing against a Canadian company (I'm Canadian born and raised) They were pricey and customer service was terrible maybe because I don't speak French but that's another issue. Overall I'm very happy with my Tsukayu fairing

Can you guys measure your fairing from the 12 oclock position of your speed-o to the top of the fairing (excluding the windshield)..

Thanks

Sorry for the delay, I measured from the top of my fairing to the top of my speedo, it's 7 inches. Top of windshield to bottom of speedo, 12 inches. Hope this helps.

I don't know for sure, I am going to assume it would be the height from head light straight up.
