My XR is my third bike and I actually think it is less effected by the wind than my 2 previous lighter and less surface area bikes. I think it is something you are just going to have to get used to. Have you tried riding your bike without the windshield and seeing how it does? I run the oem shorty on mine (comes up to my chin) so maybe I catch less wind than those running the regular or tall screen.
