Nothing is impossible, but it wouldn't be a slide-in replacement. Quite a few people have mounted aftermarket radios in the left fairing pocket with good success.

i'm assuming you are talking and have a stock hondaline fairing?

i'm pretty sure there is (was) a mounting available for that faring, similar to the way vetter did it, in that a radio/speaker housing bolted into the fairing above the handlebars
