How tall is a stock 1800 windshield?

The windshield on my 1800 is 16 3/4 inches from the rubber to the top. How tall is a stock windshield? Because I think mines short.
Thanks in advance.

Depends some on what position it is locked in to but Long Ride Shields list the 20" as OEM size.
Others can chime in but think that's correct.

I can only answer this by saying that my Taka Long Ride Windshield is a 20" shield and they list that as stock size; and I am able to see with my eyes about 1" over the top as I did with the OEM shield. Unfortunately I got rid of my OEM windshield so can not measure it for you. Perhaps if you look on Wingstuff or Honda Direct Line/ Direct Line Parts they will list the OEM by height.

Clearview lists stock as 16.5 from the rubber to the top, with the shield in the lowest position. That is what mine measures.
