Thumb KLR Windshield

Gentlemen, as riding season is around the corner, it is time to begin the upgrades and get our babies ready to fire up. With that being said, I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to find a taller windshield for my 1989 KLR 650. I am about 6'7" and could really use the extra stability. Let me know your thoughts and feel free to copy links for websites.

thanks

The riding season never ended... lol. Good luck finding a windshield for a bike that old though. Especially for a 20 year old KLR.

Edit. Check this out.

I used the search function on this website and google.

I have the 20in one. It is 1/2in to short for me. Im 6'4.
Wouldn't recomend it for you.

There is one that I saw yesterday that bolts to the front on the fairing for better stability. Was like 130 bucks or so. I forgot what it was. gah!
