Definitely depends on the person. I'm 5'11" with the same inseam, so the extra torso puts my helmet higher and longer arms put me farther back. I only get buffeting if I tuck in out of the rain.

Lots of folks on the FZ6-Forum have simply cut down the stock screen an inch or two if it didn't work for them. Keep in mind, the 04-06 have a different, more integrated screen and there are fewer aftermarket options than for the 07-09.
