The VStream Tall Touring screen on my R1150RT does that. The wind hits me from the neck up on the low setting and clears my helmet at the high setting. I'm 1.83m (6') tall if that helps anybody and...

My second bike was a Bighorn. It was like your wrist was connected directly to the rear wheel. You turned the wrist and it just pulled like stink. Awesome torque!

Handling was non-existant.

However, a 10 minute trip and $10 spent at an auto parts store might save a couple of hours of frustration and possibly a trip to the auto parts store and $10 anyway. But sure, check the bulbs first.
