For the best compromise between adequate protection from the elements and a clear view of the road ahead, select a windshield that tops out just below eye level. This reduces helmet buffeting while allowing a view unobstructed by dirt, bugs, and rain drops.

Waste of money
2017 Electra glide ultra custom, bought 15in. Windshield. Had one on my 05 Electra glide was great. Back to the new bike. Put it on glare was unbelievably nasty, coming from gas tank cover, ordered from dealer replaced it with black one under fifty dollars . They didn't tell me that the release button doesn't come with it, so that's another under fifty dollars . (For a button). There is still a Glare. So I order the black tank console under three hundred dollars to have it look uniform and hopefully get rid of more of the glare. Picked it up at dealer, there's a chip in it. Waiting for another one now. Also you get glare from the ignition switch. Which you can't purchase anywhere. Harley on line is sold out and I can't find any dealers that have them either. So unless you want to spend a lot of money and time trying to stay with the larger wind shield I'd recommend you stay with stock shield, which you still get glare but its lower on the shield and less noticeable.

This windshield substantially reduces wind buffeting
The stock windshield on the 2017 FLHTCUTG Tri Glide is quite short and for taller riders who do not wear a full face helmet, the wind buffeting is a real problem. This 15" windshield is the tallest HD replacement and it makes all the difference for me. As with all new batwing fairing models, it is a snap to install - loosen three screws, swap out, tighten and you are back on the road. Note, mine arrived with a minor rub mark (6" long) on it but since it does not affect visibility, I did not return it.

This windshield is perfect for tall riders. I have it on my 14 limited. I tinted it with cheap retail store tinting and it is great.

PERFECT FOR TALL RIDERS...TOO BAD ITS NOT TINTED!
I just purchased my fifth Harley and I'm at that age and level of disability that the Tri Glide was my only choice. On my first ride, my head was buffeting and I got a sharp sting from a bee. The only way to end these maladies with my 6'6" frame was to go to this 15" windshield. It vents the wind over my head, and I haven't been smacked with a bug since. The only reason it rates 4 stars is that it doesn't come tinted which is a must-have in California. I use ONLY Bug Slide Solution with the Harley Bug Eater sponge to clean my windshields and the entire front of my fairing since it will never damage your expensive windshield, and it leaves a light wax that will allow you to easily remove bug carcasses in the future. Bottom line: this is the best windshield for us tall riders!
