Here are my measurements copied from other posts:

I have a 34" sitting height and a 9" shield. I keep it at about the tip of my nose or upper lip but have adjusted it some in both directions.

Thanks Gray!! Good reference!! Looks like the 9" will put the windshield about 1 3/4" lower than the OEM shield on the low setting. Should work!! Wonder if the ol lady will like me dropping another 5 hun on my scoot!! At this point I would rather pray for forgiveness than ask for permission!!
