Windshield vent?

Hi everyone. A two part question;

1. Do any of you have a windshield vent, and do you find it works well? Is the air flow noticeable?

2. Did your windshield come with it, or has anyone added one (like in the picture)?

I have 2013 Vaquero with a 12" klockwerks Windshield, and am thinking of trying to add a vent. I am not sure how it would fit to the curve of the shield, but a thicker foam gasket can be easily made if necessary...but looking for some feedback from those that either have one or added one and how you found it. Sometimes I miss a little breeze on the face. The klockwerks guides the air over my helmet.

Thoughts?
