Windshield question

Just bought a 09 Custom SE and bone stock. Looking at Memphis Shade and wondering does this one take a 7 or 9" headlight opening?
Thanks, David

Pretty sure the custom is the same headlight as the Classic so that would be the 9". I have the MS Fat 21" tall, I'm 6'2" and like it A LOT! I think it's nicer than the shield that comes on the LT from the factory.

My memory is that the custom has a smaller diameter headlight. Classic is 9" though.

Does it count if you just give 4.5" twice?

No need to guess, the MS website has a fitment chart that will tell you the correct model and part number. That said, it's 9".
