Have you thought of making one dont know how tall you want it . I made a windshild extentoin for my bmw out of a old bit of perspex & it worked well . If you cut it with i jig saw use a blade for cutting plastic that seemed to stop it shatering . You mite want to practice on an old bit 1st . then heated up the edge over the gas cooker & pressed it against the sink to get the curve on the top edge then drilled 2 holes im both sceens (you could drill the cowling) then bolted then together removed the protetive coating & hey presto you have a screen. Or you could take the cowling off & use a uinversal screen like they sell for many commuting & custom bikes .

I would like something like this:

See in the Galerie the DR 650 Djebel Dakar (I don't know how to put a picture in here)

Do you know if this fits my DR?

Buying all the pieces of the DR Djebel its way too expensive. The price here in Portugal is about 220,00€ .

I don't want to spend so much money.

I found a windshield of MRA that will fit perfectly and a German guy told me the cost was about 100,00€.

I will put a picture in here.
