Screen options for a 07?

I recently bought a 07 Versys 650. Really like the bike but I find its stock screen to be pretty useless (I'm 6'4). Seems to hit me right in the neck at 80+kph.
Really struggling to find a decent after market screen that doesn't cost $$$. So far I've only found the Givi and Puig screens but both are not available or hard to get in Australia (seems the local sellers abandon a older model once a new one comes out).
I found this one on ebay..

..But its for the current model, will it fit a 07? It seems to use different holes.
Other than that I've found nothing in the sub $250 price range.

For best wind deflection use GIVI screen with Mario wind deflectors...a bit pricey.

Nope it won't work with first gen bikes.
I'm only 6'-1" and use the MRA shield that they made for Kawasaki (referred to as the factory touring shield). I'm not out of the wind but it is relatively clean.

The VStream is arguably the best looking windshield for the 1st gen bikes and is well made and works well. Only issue is it will rattle on mounts in some mounting positions unless you insulate attachment point with double sided foam tape. Lots of threads on this.

After another member (blipco) posted up doing it, I did it TWICE, for my two Gen 1s, an '08 and an '09!

Get a Yamaha Majesty (scooter) windshield - usually quite cheap as THEY all want some other 'screen (paid about $50US apiece for mine) - then spend a few hours trimming pieces off it, then CAREFULLY drilling holes into it (I went UP by 1/64" at a time!), then polish the edges. Here are some pics.
