Here is one such example.
Puig Clip-On Windscreen Visor - RevZilla
We'll see if it is needed after a few test rides. Should be easy to mod on if needed but I hope not because it is not good for the streamline.

The AM windscreen on my XJ750 was narrow and rounded and could be held fairly upright.
The windscreen on my CB400n was flattish and kept buffeting somewhat even when tilted back strongly. In both cases though my helmet needed to be in full air.
I'm trying to get a bit higher windscreen so me helmet more or less is beneath the buffering. I also ride in the winter so some shading from the wind would be neat.
