Sorry for delay. I must have missed your post.
Here's a pdf file showing more windshield detail.

There's more on my KLR web page.. http://www.powers31.info/2011_KLR650.htm
(Scroll down on page to windshields heading.)

I made the mounts from aluminum sheet stock. ( lot's of trial-and-error in bending the brackets. ) I'm real happy with the end result.
The side wings made a lot of difference in how much wind gets through to my shoulders and gives a larger "quiet" pocket in the seating position.
I made them from regular 1/8" Plexiglas from Home Depot.
The more vertical the main shield the more protection
it gives.

Seriously, I get more helmet buffeting from my GL1800 Gold Wing shield.
( It's lowered enough for me to just see over. ) Might be better if I raise it, but I like to be able to see over the top.
