Which quick release windscreen for XR650L?

Will occasionally run several hundred miles a trip and want a QUICK RELEASE fairing like the National Cycle windscreens. They look relatively inexpensive and have some fast on/off mounts. Not sure if you really NEED a 4 point mount or if just bar mount is sufficient. Link to their screens for the XR650L and does anybody have any experience with any of these? Mine will go on a 2004. Thought about a Cee Bailey but have heard more headshake stories and turbulent air with their turned up lip. Want less air on chest and clean air on helmet for LONG rides. Gotta come off fast when you get to dirt and without tools if possible.

Their QUICK release models are...

I'm running a Nat'l. Cycle shield on mine. It's a bar-mount type/QD, no problems in about two-thousand miles. Does a good job at keeping the blast off the chest. Just gotta be sure to find the best rake for you. When I first installed it I wasn't too impressed 'cause of all the headshake (had it at more of a vertical angle). A buddy of mine recommended to slope it back a little bit...voila, no more headshake.

That windshield looks EXACTLY like the Maier I had on my XR650L. JC Whitney sells it for about $70.

I found one on ebay but with the Arai XD the wind caught the visor and gave a crazy head shake. The one good thing was it would keep the wind and rain off the body. I was even thinking of buying a new helmet but the windshield went in the trash. If I was a couple inches shorter it would have been great. I am 6'4" with a tall seat.

I have the Cee Baileys and the way it mounts to the plastic headlight housing is not the way to go for sure. It does help keep the wind off my chest and being 6'4" I need all the help I can get. Looking for a better option, anyone have an comparisons?
