Equivalent of a 13" LRS mako for a 2017?

Folks, I had a 13" dark LRS Mako on my 2013 FLTRU. Loved it. Now I'm buying a 2017.

Would be interested to know what size LRS windshield people are buying who have made the same transition.

The folks at LRS want me to measure, which I will do if I have to, but I'm traveling and hope to have it waiting for me when I return.

Any help appreciated....

Interesting. I just measured it out at a 12 for me. (5'9", 32 inseam). Guidance from LRS is to measure from the top of the vent to your upper lip.

I got off the plane, ubered directly over to Glendale HD and had a parts guy help me measure with a tape measure and the whip antenna from the rental 2017 FLTRU I sat on, LOL.

I didn't really measure....I wanted to keep a low windshield for the looks and went with a guess....for the price ($63 shipped) I figured I could always go taller if I needed to....with a cvo solo and the 11" shield.....really works well for me.

Clearly I missed that deal, paid $109 including shipping to Michigan.

I measured and rounded up to 13. Love it. Makes me sit up straight if I want to look over it, or a slouch to look through it. No hunting up and down to get away from the edge. I went with light tint so I can use it at night. 5'4" short and 32 inseam. Would think about a 15 to hide behind for cross country.
