I did the same thing, over the weekend! I removed the windscreen brackets, too. The ride is much quieter.
There's a problem, though: With the brackets removed, there are holes in the cowling where rain can get in. I got a school binder with a thick, flexible, black plastic cover, and I'll see if I can cut it into a shape that allows me to install it under the cowling and tuck it under the left and right front fairing pieces.
I don't know what it is, but riding without the windscreen and tank bag feels more bad-ass and I feel closer to the road. And the Versys looks nice without the windscreen and brackets -- it looks more masculine, more aggressive.
