I have a 2015 / 1000 and when I bought the bike it had a smoked Puig Racing Screen (18 inches tall) on it. I thought it looked good but all I got was a lot of head buffeting from it. I'm short (5'7") so maybe that's the problem. I put the stock screen back on and it was a lot better for me. I think the other thing is, I am used to riding my sport bike which only has a tiny screen and the air goes into your chest not bouncing off your head. So maybe it's what I was used to?
Anyhow, I recently purchased a National Cycle Short (13 inches) VStream windshield because I wanted a smoked screen. It's about as tall as the stock screen but a different shape - we'll see how it performs when I get a clear day to ride.

I have seen a video on Youtube (Ozark backroads?) where a guy actually cuts down a screen he bought with a jigsaw and sanded and buffed it out - It looked like he did a good job on it!

Good luck!

I also just fitted the PUIG Touring screen on a 2015 Versys 1000. Have to say I am impressed with the performance in comparison to the standard screen.

Live, Ride, Be Happy.....

Just took a burn today with my National Cycle Short screen and for me it is awesome!! It makes my bike feel more like a sport bike with the wind hitting my chest not bouncing around my head. I will most likely sell my Puig screen as I will never mount it again. I will see if there is a classified section in here and figure out how to post pictures.
