1500 windshield on a 1200

Hello,

Does anyone know if a windshield for a GL1500 will fit on a GL1200. Not the fairing, just the windshield.

Thanks,

Bud.

No, they mount in a completely different way. It's possible you could maybe get it to fit, but you'd have to drill/cut rounded slots into the windshield to accommodate the 1200's mounting system.

Kind of figured that would be the answer. Oh well, gives me another thing to buy over the winter.

Thanks for the answer.

Bud.
