Screens are funny things.They are so many things to consider,do you want it low or high,tinted or not,adjustable or not & only some are adjustable.Thier are so many make,models & sizes.
I'm lead to believe that over there you can go bike shops/screen dealers & they have dummy screens you can try on your bike, at least you can try before buy,here in oz we don't have that opportunity.
It really depends on what you want the screen to do for you.
I bought a national cycle chopper screen for my 950,looks great,but have afew issues with it.Firstly the screen cut out for the headlight sat 5 1/2 inches off the headlight(too far),secondly recieved to much air through that gap & over the screen,it was like riding a roller coaster(bloody terrible).To try to solve these issues I lowered the screen & tilted it back as far as I could,made a big difference,but still not totally happy so I've taken it off for now.
I don't want to scare you,talk to blokes who have screens on thier bike,even ask if possible to go for a ride so you can actually see for yourself if that's what you really want to do.
Good luck Bro
I'm lead to believe that if you stand your bike up right,sit on your bike in your riding position,place your finger tips on your nose & then stretch your hand out directly in front towards the front of your bike,that should be the appropriate height for the screen you require
