here yuh go. I prefer the "rimless" type.
A shield WILL change how your handlebars work. Removing air pressure from your chest adds pressure to your wrists.

Street Shield EX models
are both wider and taller (ours
is 18 inches tall and 19.25
inches wide) than non-EX
models for better wind protection.

That's what mine measures, height from the top of the headlight cutout arc

Gimme a minute, but Mikey has the Givi, it went with the bike when he bought it.
The new EX I have is 17" tall by 16" wide
Old one was 18" tall by 18 1/2 wide
Doesn't seem like much but when riding it's a big difference
Edit : First pic is just the close up of the new EX shield the other 2 are from the old shield which I bought used from a guy who had it on a 650 also
The old one I bought used and it was on a 650 from the previous owner

It's got the 4 point quick set mounting system and I'm pretty sure I ordered the EX
I noticed that the new one was shorter and narrower than the old one via their measurement specs
