Windshield Question?

I have a 06' VStrom that has a Givi 22.5 inch windshield and I am trying to get a couple more inches of height. Has anyone raised the mount to the top two sets of holes? I think that will work but I am wondering if it four bolts at the top will still be strong enough to support the windshield.

I'd do it, and while you're at it check the two bolts that hold the entire cowl assembly to the frame in the center of the steering column. They have a habit of going missing.

Likewise. Raised the stock windshield to the higher set of holes, and no problems as of yet.

I've got your 'shield with a Madstadt adj bracket kit mounted. Excellent!
