R1100s Sreen

I’m thinking of changing my standard R1100s screen for a power bronze double bubble has anyone else tried one of these?

I’ve got one, the trouble is I forget what the oem one is like.
I will dig it out this weekend and guestimate the difference in size.
I’m thinking about a new screen purely for the sake of it, but not sure what direction to go in. Some are ginormous which I definitely don’t want, but a bit larger than the powerbronze might be worth a go.
Anyone with a suggestion?

Finally dug out the original screen.
It’s 2” higher than the original and ever so slightly wider towards the top.
It’s going to make a difference but I can’t say more as I changed it so long ago that I forget. FWIW the Powerbronze is sufficient for me at autobahn speeds without bending forward.

I tried three screens on my 1100S way back. And I found none reduced wind noise at all but they did reduce wind blast and a propensity to lifting my helmet up (standard screen).
There would appear to be a surfeit of prolixity and sesquipedalian content today please do not use a big word when a singularly un-loquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity
