Hey there -- I'm a bit over 6'2", and I have done quite a bit of highway travel with my standard (i.e. not 690-specific) Lynx, and can report that the improvement is significant. However, pulling the windshield *all* the way up results in an unpleasant buffeting. I run the windshield at about 3/4, and find it very agreeable, it even makes enough still air that I can leave my face shield open about an inch at highway speeds comfortably.... can't do that at all with the KTM 'numberplate'.
That's a good point regarding the screen height. We have found that many guys who are taller, choose to operate the screen a bit lower, to make sure their helmet is not at the point where the wind comes off the top of the screen ( where it is at it's most turbulent ).
We experimented with a taller screen with a view to trying to get the wind over the top of a 6'4" guy, but frankly it does not work. You just get more turbulance !
The best way to view this, is that the system will allow you to adjust it to get the best result for you that is possible within the perameters of a dual sport fairing. In your case, this may be adjusting the screen to a height where the weight of the windblast is taken away from your arms and shoulders, but leave your helmet in clean air. Does that make sense ?
