I fitted one of these a couple of years ago. I have no idea if they are still available though. It is not bad but not great either.

There's a smallish one from a R type Beemer that fits (with different brackets I think) and numerous others.
I had a Puig screen on mine. It was alright in keeping the worst of the weather off me but as the XCo headlicht is smaller that the screen is intended for it so it does nothing good for the looks of the bike.

I fitted it without the metal bits that come with it to bring as far back as I could but it still sits a little in front of the headlight so the light reflected on the back of the screen.
