Handlebar fairing

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.

Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.
