I too am 6'-2" with a 2020 FJR and I too find it noisy, wind-wise. A few comments:
A motorcycle windshield should never be so high that you have to look through it.
Always wear earplugs, even where wearing them is illegal or semi-illegal like in Minnesota where apparently it is illegal to wear 2 earplugs. That is unless you don't mind tinnitus or you hope to go deaf some day. I doubt there's a windshield/helmet combination good enough to protect your hearing.
Helmet design is a huge factor in wind noise. The Shoei Neotec II is said to be the quietest modular helmet, even better than the Schuberth. I have both a Neotec II and an AGV Sport Modular Carbon and the Neotec II is much quieter than the AGV. Better yet, give up the convenience of a modular and wear a conventional full face helmet.
I bought the Yamaha touring windshield and it helps but it is not perfect. I believe it is 4" taller and 1/2" wider than stock. It does block a lot of air, in fact it blocks too much air in the hot weather so I switched back to the stock screen and put up with a little more noise. I now use the touring windshield for cold weather, like below 5C.
Good luck in your quest to find quiet. It can be like searching for unicorns.
