I have settled ( for now ) on the stock windshield with a TT clip on extension, the TT window brace, and winglets on my 12GS with good results and much improvement over stock. I am 6' 7".

If your GS is an 05 it has WP shocks on it. While these are better than what is used now, they are not Ohlins and you will still see your moneys worth in difference.
