A screen for a 2012-2016 will not fit the Madstad bracket. So, they are probably forcing you to order as a kit to get around what I imagine is a long list of pissed customers that bought a screen elsewhere that didn't fit!
Pretty sure they did that since the 2012 DL650 windshield had bolsters (stand offs?) on it that complicated the whole process. It also meant the huge number of windshields designed for the original DL650 and DL1000 would work fine (and they did... both stock from my 2006 DL650 and the Givi large Screen gave me buffeting free riding.)


2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 175,000+ km, 108,500+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Extension on top of 24" Parabellum. Now perfect for touring.
(For my "Adventure" mode without cases, just backpack strapped on, I remove the Parabellum and put on the crappy stock windscreen that I cut way down to be just a cowl over the dash, and blacked it out on backside - being done now.)
