If you are looking to just replace it, there are many sites on the web you can purchase a replacement windscreen, for example:

http://www.memphisshades.com/

http://www.motorcyclewindshield.com/mer ... re_Code=ws

Removing the old one would in some cases depending on make just be a matter of removing the screws holding it in place to the fairing or loosening the clamps holding it on the bike

You could also check the manufacturers site to see if they offer replacements so you wouldn't have to worry about exact fit.

You have to take the mirrors off or at least loosen them and remove the top bolt. This lets you remove the top cover above the headlight. There is a press clip above the headlight for this cover. Large flat pry tool will work. When you remove that trim piece you will expose the wind shield screws for removal. Just keep track of the order of removal and it's a piece of cake.
Hope this helps.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.
