Mine does vibrate a bit, but doesn't blow around or anything. It performs as if it were made that way stock. There are a few types you can use. If you want the type I have, a KTM 690 one works, or the one Finn got (I forget what kind...) Really though, anything that you like the looks of works fine; you have to fab your own mounting solution anyway.

If you want to keep the beak and just ditch the hugger, then get one from a 650 Dakar, and trim it. Directions are in the thread you mentioned, I believe.
