With the OEM screen, dirty air is hitting me at about an inch or so below my collar bones.

What's been your experience so far?
It sounds like you have a pretty good setup right now. A taller windscreen would move that turbulence upwards. I don't think we can get a tall enough windscreen to get behind, or at least I wouldn't want one that tall on my D/S bike.

I have the older, taller KTM Adventure windscreen, and at 6'3 and not so long waisted, I get buffeting. I am actually thinking about splashing a mold off my mask and trying a cut-down version, unless I find a mask off a wrecked '01-'03 to try.

You F-650 windscreen guys might want to try aluminum chainring bolts from a bike shop. Ricardo Kuhn recommended these a long time ago. Maybe a fat o-ring in between.
