My apologies for bringing up yet again a well versed subject yet after reading what I could find on the subject I have not found the answer I have been looking for. What size do I need to consider if I want to duplicate the height of the OEM windshield in the lowest position with the Cee Bailey #2? Is it the -2 or the -3? Or is it the -4? Looking at their web site I haven't found that answer as well. Based upon how I sit in the saddle the OEM windshield height is perfect for me in the lowest position as I love to have a clear line of vision over the windshield.

You'll be able to go a little lower on the CB because of the curve on top.I have a minus four and can raise it at least a third of the way before it gets to my sightline.Still directs air over my head all the way down. I am 5'9"

I'm 5'8" & the Cee Bailys #2, -2 works good for me.
I tried a factory style windshield for awhile & did'nt like it.

I have a CeeBailey's #2 -2 which has the same vision angle to the top of the shield as the OEM did. I'm 6'3" with a 36" inseam and in it's lowest position I get air in my face & on my chest for those hot days. About 1/2 way up is where is is most of the time and I look just over the top of the shield. In heavy rain I put it all the way up and duck behind it to minimize helmet impact noise. If the OEM shield is just right in its lowest position, I'd go with a -3 or -4 to allow for adjustment up and down similar to what I described. Good luck.

I replaced my OEM with a #2 -2. If I had it to do again, I would go -3 or maybe even -4. I'm 5' 11'' and ride with the seat in the high position. Even in it's lowest setting, the shield blocks a little of my vision.

Thanks for the input! Not too sure what the consensus is though as to the height to match the OEM shield. Glad to see you are pleased with works for you, I need to find the height that works for me. I find that based on the seat (Corbin) and being 5"10" (32inch inseam) that I like the line of sight that I enjoy with the OEM windshield fully lowered. Trying to match that height with a new windshield.
