Just ordered a 12in shield. It should be here next week. Also just ordered a set of 16in apes. It never even dawned on me about the 2 not working together (my first fairing bike) So what do you guys think. Think I will have any clearance issues?

No worries. I just installed a 14" Freedom Sport Touring a week or so ago, and I have 16" apes. No clearance issues at all. You'll have no problem with the 12" shield.

I originally ordered an 11 inch (not the sport, I think it was called the touring) but one of the local dealers had a 12 inch. I still had the plastic on so they let me switch it out and I stayed with the 12 inch. I have a slightly lowered seat on my ultra and I'm only 5'7 with a 29 inch inseam. I can see over the top and it works fine for me. Keep in mind though, if you're not happy with it you can send it back if it's still wrapped (if you bought it new).

Well Im running a CVO seat, but I have a 34in inseam. I took 2 yard sticks. one coming straight up off the top vent and the other one lined up at my nose. they crossed at 4.5 inches.. surely thats the right height.. Right??? lol.. I just read on here that you shorter fellas are going with taller winshields and it makes me think I went to short.

I will have a 12 inch tint sheild with about 300 miles on it for sale today, when I put my 21 on the front it moved the edge right into my line of sight so I ordered a 10. I have fmb bars and it works fine.
