I am 6' 4", 34" inseam, and just bought a 990 R... Been wondering what to do with the shield - and thinking about trying a lip, or louver, on the top.
After only 200 miles, I find that the wind hits me hard on both shoulders and the top of the chest. I have a hornet helmet and a scorpion, and have not tried to use the hornet yet due to the buffeting. I don’t really want a larger windscreen, and had hoped that a louver would open the bubble of calmer air enough to sneak my hornet on again. I have no experience with louvers, do they work at all?

I'm 6'4" and currently working on my own solution to the >40mph head buffeting. I'm a cheap-skate at heart, but I'd have no problem spending $150+ for a solution that I didn't think was ugly or ridiculous looking if I could return it if it didn't work. Apparently, I'm a bit of a hammer-head too, so that's why I'm going to try my own. I am consulting a mechanical engineer friend who builds and flies his own airplanes.

At this point I've got a simple add-on to the stock screen. I'll post pics and results once I perform some real-world tests, hopefully this weekend. Wish me luck

I've read and seen some naca duct installs but that'll come later.
