Default Sportster Windshield Extension

I have a quick release windshield that came with my 2010 Forty Eight. I don't normally ride with the windshield, but I thought this fall when it gets cold it might come in handy.
The problem is that it's not tall enough for me and I get helmet shake from the wind buffeting.

Can anyone recommend an extension that can mount to the top to add maybe 6" to the height of it?

Windshield should be lower than eyes. So we can look over, not through. Helmet fitness and style will affect the buffetting. My HJC open face shake bad without windshield, getting better with windshield. Got zero wind buffetting with my full face shoei regardless windshield

Take a look on Amazon for "motorcycle windshield extender", where you will find a wide variety of such things. They are aimed at the sports/touring bike market for the same purpose and I used one for several years on my Buell Firebolt. Worked very well and was adjustable, so I could get it 'just so'.

I used the clamp on extension from Puig, works good for what it is, only 4 inch's tall. You can adjust the angle to direct the windflow.
