Taller windshield - Where to buy/order

All

I believe I have the taller Yamaha windshield on my Vstar 1100 classic, I say that because the mounting hardware has the star branding on it. Unfortunately I don't feel it's high enough and I would like to order just the sheild (plexiglass) with all mounting holes drilled to install with existing brackets. Can anybody refer to a supplier that can support a higher windshield at a reasonable cost? I can send the existing windshield if needed to locate the holes. I belive a 1.5-2" increase would do it for my seat position.

thanks

With only a 1"-2" difference needed, look for an angle adjustment on your existing shield first. If you angle it more upright, it might be exactly what you need without your buying another part.

Thanks for info but unfortunately this can't pivot.

Really like my National Cycle switchblade along with their lowers. Work great together.

The tall OEM is 21" from the light cutout to the top of the shield
and in case you don't no the OEM mount will move up or down
(depending on location). 2" giving you 21" too 23" with the tall shield.
