I'm 5'5", and currently riding my 650 using a 3" taller windshield (from prev owner) vs. the stock one. I've tried putting back the stock windshield, and other than the fact that I can see over the top edge of the stock windshield while seated, I find the stock wind is deflecting the wind high enough to swoop right onto or over the top of my helmet. no wind is hitting my eyes. I can live with that.

But with the taller windshield on the 650, I have to see through the plexiglass while seated. I don't mind it really. HOwever, the wind seems to flow much higher above my helmet that, at times, I am wondering whether this is worse than stock, aerodynamically speaking. I've read where some riders experience sonic booms (or something to that effect) at hwy speeds due to wind turbulence building up behind the rider. Does this sound issue happen only with low windshields or tall windshield?

i mainly want to find the best windshield setting for when I ride on the hwy, doing between 75-85 mph. IN town, the problem with noise or visibility is a moot issue.

OK, I see....it's called buffetting. So does buffetting only occur w/ the stock height shield? Or does the taller WS also produce buffetting, but at a different speed or whatnot?
