The mock up represents my brother's dimensions. He is app 6'0" with a 33" inseam. I asked him to sit on his bike and measure from the front of the seat where it touches the tank to the top of his head (32.5") and how far back his chin is from the filler cap (6.25")

I then made a mock up and positioned it as accurately as possible, then provided 3 views each (full DOWN, mid-way, full UP) of the OEM screen, Rifle without Tuning Block and Rifle with Tuning Block. Others may find it useful to gauge whether this screen will be of any value to them.

I am 6'3" and I easily see over the screen when it is in the full-up position.
