My "small" extender for my Versys-X windscreen is a big success. There is just one problem: wobbling fore and aft. When I am on the motorway, there is a lot of turbulence from the cars and trucks ahead of me. As a result, my windscreen and its extension wobble like jelly. Once I am away from the traffic, in "clean" air, the wobbling greatly reduces.

To provide mechanical support to the windscreen, I have ordered a GPS mount. (See below). I will mount a rubber spacer on the top horizontal bar of the mount, to press up against the windscreen to support it. That should reduce the wobbling.

Has anyone else tried this?

I know that I will not be able to eliminate all the wobbling, but I can reduce it to an acceptable level. This will also reduce the flexing of the Versys-X screen and maybe reduce plastic fatigue (is "plastic fatigue" like metal fatigue?).

The "small" windscreen extension significantly reduces air pressure on my upper body, thus reducing rider fatigue on long-distance high-speed touring (getting to and from those unsealed roads).

My screen extender is a different design from your one. It has two attachment points instead of one. I hope it will be up to the task, but if it breaks, I will do what you have done and get the one-piece larger screen that you have. Two of my Versys-X-riding mates have the same screen, so that's what I will get if my extension shits itself and goes south.
