I'm a big fan of screensforbikes
. I ran one on each of the DR's when I had them. If I weren't working on a rally fairing for the WR to accomplish the same thing I'd order another for it. If you get the impact resistant one they're super durable...This is the one on the little DR after I took a pretty hefty spill on the icebreaker.
There's a little abrasion at the top of it after the bike slid on it to a stop, but it's still very usable.
As for wind protection, the wind typically would hit me on the bike ~neck level. It did a very good job at keeping a lot of the wind off my chest which does cut down on fatigue on longer trips and makes riding in teh cold a bit easier. Even if they don't have your specific model listed, Peter the owner does a good job at making something that will do the job.
