Default Fairing retrofit ?

Anyone fitted a street glide fairing to their Kingpin?

I am considering doing it, but I wonder how much room I'll have with the cables for the Speedometer and Tachometer? I want to mount them into the holes in the fairing.
The other holes I think I could mount a clock and thermometer and a couple of 12volt power taps. Also hoping to extend the lead on the ignition switch and move it to the center post on the fairing as well.

Do a search for faring mounts. Thing you'll find guys using Memphis shades
Doughty you could get a real FLHX fairing to fit right

Wide open does have nice products, but the cost is very high.

I like the look of the street glide fairing and they can be had on ebay for about $250 for both inner and outer plus a little extra for a new windshield.

Part of it for me I think would be the challenge of modifying it and making brackets that would work with my current windshield brackets etc.

I may hold off though, as I'm thinking seriously about selling the KP and going to a Vision...
