Default 1100 Kat: Taller Windscreen or Add-on?

Looking to enlarge the windscreen temporarily for the Fall cold. Anybody know any manufacturer that provides taller windscreens for the 1100F Kat? Thanks.

Clearview windshields USED to sell /make new ones for the 1100 kat
a couple of yrs ago. I was lucky enough to get ahold of a brand new one standard size but they did make a taller one also. It would be worth a shot
to check if their making them again.

Hey- Thanks for the link. I did a little Googling myself, and found a company out of Florida called "Gustafsson's", and they make custom screens for our bikes. I'll be going with a +6" taller/+3 wider shield in a light smoke. Kinda pricey, but hopefully it aides in wind deflection during the colder season. Thanks!

Thumbs up

I think I paid $150 or so for the wind screen not cheap but worth it.
Now that the cooler weather is here I use my Koso heated grips all the time
and its gotta be one of the best mods i have done to the bike.
I could still use some covers ( wind protection ) for the hand grips
but those grips sure get toasty. 5 heat settings and 3 or 4 is about right.

There are add on spoilers which may or may not improve things. Personally I have a taller screen on mine but in the fully raised position just sends the blast to my head so I keep it down
