I have been using the MRA Touring Screen for many years now:


It does increase wind noise in the helmet compared to the stock wind 
screen, but it also takes a lot of wind pressure away from the chest and 
shoulders. I (almost) always use earplugs anyway, so for me the 
advantages way override the noise problem.

Some German riders I know use this:


- but from what I hear it's not really that good and there is still wind 
noise in the helmet. I guess there is not an easy solution for our 
bikes. One of the German riders (short guy) had his seat modified, so 
yes - it is possible to sit a bit lower. This, however, would result in 
more bent knees, and I know for sure that my knees wouldn't like that :-)
