New Shield advice for older bike

So I picked up a beater last week. It's a 2009 RG with a small shield that acts like it helps the front fairing more than the rider. Wind is harsh and loud. What would be a good height mako LRS shield for this ? My guess was a 13" or 14" since I am 6'5.

Any help or comments would be much appreciated, and Thanks in advance

I had a 14" Mako on my 09 and I'm 6'. It worked well. You might need to go taller. Give them a call.

I'm 5'10" and I have the 13" and I look over it. Works the best of all I've tried.
