The amount of electrical components under the Gen 2 instruments is probably most peoples biggest hurdle. Have you ever removed the front fairing assembly & looked at that area?
I think that with some judicious hacksaw work on the top & front of the Gen 2 fairing mounting stub, on the steering neck, a Gen 1 fairing bracket would bolt right onto the Gen 2 main frame, no welding required. The height & bolt spacing appear to be the same.
