My 90 600V came with the Givi. I'm 5'11" too and the wind blast hit me in the top of my helmets visor area causing some buffeting. Have thought about trying a 21" Clearview to see if it would eliminate the buffeting but it's close to $200 so probably will stick with the Givi. Good quality earplugs help immensely in cutting down air blast noise.

Mine came with the Givi I had the top of the helmet buffeting. Im 511 and I couldnt stand it even with ear plugs. So i sold it and got a stock screen and like it better.

As I am 6'2 and previous owner was a bit taller, a higher windscreen was mounted. It is the only thing I have tried. I am happy with it, but ear protection is required. Not shure if it is the the windscreen or the helmet. My helmet is a type that can open the lower part. Due to this, there is many things that causes turbulence around further most back part of the visor ( perhaps a bad sentence? But you'll understand I guess) anyways, with earbuds and Scalarider headset it's no problem for me. Here is my windscreen

I make my own, Lexan or other material. They come out perfect size every time, cheap, and always a clear view.
