F700 model specific 3rd party windscreen fitment

I've read copious amounts of information on here about windscreens, and searched all the manufacturer sites, but it seems that Cee Bailey is the 'only' aftermarket mfg who has made a F700GS model specific fitment windscreen available as of this date (April 20/13). Is anyone aware of any others? I really don't want to start adding brackets to make the F650 screens fit. I'm particulary interested in a V-Strean touring screen.

I had a Cee Bailey and was very happy with it, the sport screen did not require any additional brackets.

I broke the Cee Bailey in a little accident. There is an Aeroflow in my garage waiting to be installed, I unfortunately do not currently have the rest of the bike.

Isnt the 650 screen mounted the same? I thought only the 800 wrapped around the sides.

Apparently the Cee Bailey's that fit the 650's won't fit the 700.
See http://www.ceebaileys.com/bmw/650gs_twin_ws.html
I actually like the look of the ones that fit the 650 better than the ones that are specific for the 700, they just look a bit more 'integrated' because they wrap around. It looks like it's the small winglets that they added beside the windshield on the 700 that messes things up, but not sure?

Here's what National Cycle told me about the VStream shields

"The F800/F650 shields will not fit on the F700GS. We are in the process of designing a new shield for the F700GS models. We are looking to have this shield ready by early summer."

I'm hoping that means early June.

They told me this at Christmas.

You can by the side mounts for the 700 from BMW for about $60 bucks I think.

Yep, I read that somewhere in here, but would prefer not to have to use 'accessory brackets' . . or spend an additional $60 (I think someone else said about $90). I hope they can retain the wrap around look somehow. Cee Bailey didn't and I think the new 700 screens loose something on the appearance side because if it. If these manufacturers can't elegantly address the wrap around because of the new winglets on the 700 . . I may reconsider the accessory brackets and the 650 screens which may end up looking better than the new screens with the winglets. This all seems like such a small issue considering the events of the past week doesn't it . . .
