I've got the OEM windshield & mounting hardware but my bike came with the short windscreen.
I need a med or tall screen. Hardware not needed.
That is unless you got the quick release hardware you want sell.

You and I are in the same market. Seats and shields! Just today while coming home from work I slouched down a little to see what a taller windshield would do for me. It helped quite a bit. I wear a full face helmet and have flipped the face shield up to keep my head somewhat steady. It does help but I would like a slightly taller shield. Found some at Revzilla..About 160.00 Saw a nice deal on a seat and windshield on FB but I missed that one by a day. Oh well....Good luck in your search!

Hey Redbird58
I took my stock windshield and raised it up a notch on the frame. That raises it by about 4". Been riding with it that way for about 4 days now. For me it makes a big difference.
I know it's not designed to do that, but I wanted to try it just to see how much difference it made. It convinced me that I need a taller windshield.

Clearview makes one that is a direct replacement for the OEM windshield in 3 different heights. You can also get it 4" wider if you want. They start at $165.00. You can use your existing hardware.
This is probably how I'm going to go in the near future.
I want to make several mods to my bike to make it more comfortable for longer rides. There's only one thing stopping from getting this done all at once. It's that thing called money.

If buffeting is your problem maybe a set of front fork lowers would help. A lot of air gets directed up under the windshield by your fuel tank and hits you in the chin area. A way to tell is if you put your hand down flat beside your tank to block the air. If it stops some of the buffeting fork deflectors would certainly help.

Yeah
I got the lowers and that helped.
Once I raised up the windshield it is much better.
