I've run my SV stock naked, fully faired with clip ons, and it's currently naked with clip ons. Here's my take on wind blast:
naked with bars is brutal: straight up and down posture exposes the chest to the wind and makes long drones an exercise in pulling yourself forward against the drag.
fully faired: much easier to knife through the wind, shoulders, chest and arms ride in a nice little quiet pocket of air; big time helmet buffeting and deafening wind noise as the wind seemed to hit me right at the neck. Reeaallly nice in cold weather and rain to hide behind the plastic...
naked with clip ons: clean wind, and lots of it; the clip ons give you a forward lean and make your shoulders and head the leading edge against the wind rather than your chest. I did a trip from Minnesota to Arizona in late October in this trim, and I will admit the wind blast was both tiring and cold, and I was pretty well geared up.
Have not ridden the FZ6, so can't help you there. Aftermarket clip ons should be relatively universal, as long as you get the correct fork diameter clamps; verify that clutch and throttle cables don't get shortened too much by going to clip ons and you should be good to go.
