Question Can a Givi Airflow Windscreen For F700GS '13-'15 be modified to fit a 2010 F650GS?

That screen seems like one of the best adjustable options out there but is not offered for pre-2013 bikes.

So, how hard could it be to mod it to work on a 2010 bike?

Why no rear mud guard like the old 650 single did and 1200 still does?

It seems they removed it from the new G650GS as well.
And what was it even for? Protecting people behind you?

Is it ok to put the fatter 150/70-17 tire from the F800GS on the rear of the F650GS which comes stock with the skinnier 140/80-17?

Would it be OK to put a 100/90-19 front tire on a 2010 F650GS instead of a 110/80-19?

I haven't see anything about doing that but it seems like such a small difference that it should be fine.

Just slightly more narrow, right?

Which Heidenau K60 rear tire sizes have the center strip and which don't?

Also the rear wheel of my F650GS can take both a 140/80-17 or 150/70-17 tire, right?
