Hi! Mark.
I have been using mine for a while. It really does the job but the stitches which hold the small velcros are not as strong as they have to be and I had to fix it somehow. I can recommend it to you.

I, being intimate with my inner KLR (despite being a strom owner) made my own. Free plastic, bent in hot water, painted and attached with paste-it velcro bits.

Works like a charm.

Somewhere here I once saw self-made sun shade. They might be another solution, but if you want something more authentic, you have to pay for it.
