I don't know about the availability of a screen, but, I ran a BMW F650GS Dakar for 4 years, and the tiny wind deflector above the headlamp on the 950sm (the black bit in wpb's photo above) is FAR more effective up to 90 mph than the Dakar screen. The buffeting from the Dakar's screen and mirrors used to make my neck muscles creak something awful after an a hour or so.... NOT been a problem on the 950SM. My experience only... Your mileage may vary... Don't run with scissors.... etc etc
