Cee Bailey's
http://www.ceebaileys.com/kawasaki/versys_06_ws.html
Cee Bailey's Versys windshield takes off where the stock OEM windshield falls short. Our larger shields for the Versys, are far superior to that of the smaller and less effective OEM shield that comes with the bike. We have two extended version models in two heights each, our unique "Euro" shield, which has an inverted "dome" cut, and protects the torso from the ram air blast, and our touring shield, which has a traditional domed top. Both shields enhance the riders comfort by combining a wider width to each shield, combined with swept rake and taller heights to make the Versys a more comfortable riders bike. The stock shield is approximately 11" tall, and 13" wide for comparison. The shield is made from aircraft grade acrylic, in thickness of .150, and is hand polished to a brilliant luster. It is available in Clear, Light green, light gray and dark gray tints.

All our Versys shields are 14" wide, so 1" wider than stock
Between $160-$180

Just food for thought, if you use the madstad adjustable windshield mount, you can then use any vstrom shield in addition to the shields made for the Versys. This will provide additional options.

I tend to think that the options in windscreens would be better if people were to say waht height they are, or height above the seat.

eg
stock screen ok for dwarfs
vario OK for not quite dwarfs
blah screen great for 1.8m...1.9m (~6'...6'3" for the metrically challenged)

Would a madstad mount work on the taller oem windshield and maybe get enough air off my chest and no helmet buffet for my 5' 8" height? Would the Givi be too tall for me to look over. I don't want to look through any shield. Always hear from you tall guys. Appreciate from you short riders. thanks

The Madstad mount gives a lot of flexibility. I have it set in the upper postion on the holes on the shield. Mounted this way when I put the shield all the way up it comes up to my nose giving me plenty of view over the top. Cee Bailey and a few other manufacters make Vstrom shields that are taller and wider if a person wanted a bigger shield. The only problem with a wider shield would be the mirrors hitting at full lock. I am 510 with a 32 inch inseam with a stock seat. With the sheild set as described above, I typically ride with my visor open and have very little buffeting. It seems what buffeting I get comes mostly from the mirrors. I think I willl try some mirror extenders to see if they make it even better.

What shield are you running that it comes to your nose? I really don't want a huge shield. Not a really cold weather rider anymore. Just want something to Keep the bugs off my face shield. The 650 R ninja i had would cover my faceshiled with bugs every evening ride. I am going to try the tall oem shield first off and go from there. thanks for the input

Motordog, are those OEM saddlebags? If so, what trunk do you have? It seemed on the Vista Kawi website that you couldn't put the rear trunk brackets (K16160-0016) on with the saddlebag racks.

mz33, they are the givi v35 sidecases, and the givi 46v top case. the v 35's are the standard kawasaki bags made for kawasaki by givi. the sw moto, and the givi racks enable the mounting of the side and top cases together. the standard racks supposedly will not allow the combination.

MadStad Bracket with MP shield

Mark of MadStad was gracious enough to get me
the same windshield as on his Versys demonstrator,
a mid-sized MP shield, to save some shipping expense.
The one he chose compliments the shape of the bike,
not being too big and should not interfere with any
handguards I choose.

When I first installed it I put the MadStad bracket all
the way up and forward and it deflected almost all the
wind over my head, with a substantial amount still
hitting my chest. Sunday morning it was foggy and
my faceshield was not clearing well so I moved the
windshield down about an inch and it not only allowed
just enough air to clear my face shield of the excessive
moisture but also reduced the chest buffet.

I took it up to 110 (for testing purposes only, ha ha)
and it did very well. Since the bracket accommodates
V-Strom windshield spacing, I had them drill the Versys
windshield with that wider spacing for stability and my
speed test bore out my theory nicely.

If I were going to change anything I might make the
windshield an inch bigger all around but it does a very
good job as ordered. Let's see if I can include a picture:
