Do any of you know if a 1200 handlebar fairing is comparable with a 1100a bike?

GL1200 fairing is called a frame mount fairing, so is the 1100 fairings. Probably need some mods.

ummmmm, you really don't want the weight of a fairing and it's vortexes on the bars.
There's good reasons why you see minimal sized windshields made for Bar Mounted shields.

There's a good chance it will fit but more than likely you'll need the 1200 fairings mount and shims BUT I'm not sure.
MAYBE take a gander at Google Images for bike frames to compare.
