givi not good for tall guys

i just picked up a Givi and installed it. I'm 6'5" tall and sit fairly high on a regular or tall version of the seat on the f800gs. The stock screen had wind buffeting my chest and shoulders. The higher Givi makes it a very noisy ride now with buffeting around my helmet. If I was a shorter rider i think it would flow right over me.

I sit as tall as a typical 6'4" rider and need more protection.
I've been impressed by the stock screen on my F800GS regarding the lack of buffeting and turbulance, by the blast hits me in the chest.
Any experience, good or bad?
