I bought a fairing from a guy who has the Sportster 1200. How do I mount it on my street rod? Can’t find videos

I think the cowl’s bracket is different between the Sportster and Street Rod, you might need the bracket too

@Hahn - Is the Street Rod headlight a press fit like some of the side covers are? Looking at the photo I'm guessing the fairing has four cast in posts that press into the four holes on the bracket with rubber grommets, then the bracket has a couple of screws connecting it to the forks.

Looking at a YouTube video for removing the 2020 Iron 1200 fairing it seems that the bracket has a pair of screws holding the fairing and another pair connecting to the forks.

You may need to remove the Street Rod fairing and bracket and then put on the Sportster bracket to mount your fairing to. It might not fit correctly, so you may need to do some fabrication work. That may be as simple as drilling new bolt holes in the bracket.

Yes it is! I can get more photos if it is helpful. I think riding for the rest of June is iffy, we have major storms and flooding this week, but I can pull the tarp and take pics if needed

That looks fantastic. I love that. I want the same one. Do you know WHICH "Slip Streamer" model that is? Did you mount it yourself? What it difficult?

"The motorcycle sportshield is for riders who want more than a windshield but less than a large fairing. Strong four-place mount installs easily and holds secure. This universal handlebar-mounted shield will fit most standard street and touring motorcycles. Fits a round headlight only. Fits with 7/8” and 1” handlebars."

It's the S-08. It uses a 4 point mounting system. I mount mine differently than the company picture. I want the screen out front. I don't want it low against the meters and headlight. This interferes with the air flow under and around the screen. I want air flow in. Otherwise, the screen creates a turbulence in the cockpit due to the low pressure area right behind the screen. Get air behind the screen!
I have installed this screen on a couple of other bikes. I like the protection and the air flow. In the link is an installation video. Put up a pic when you get one on!
More advice...bring the tightening tools with you. It will probably need to re-tighten.
Cheers,
Bill G.
