Definitely expect to get new springs/etc to suit my bike. And guess I'll need to source the front brakes from the XR1200 too.

Wheel-wise the XR has its own axle size, right? So I'll need either an XR1200 wheel or get a wheel laced up to that hub?
Ronnie's HD parts finder is a great resource for figuring out swaps between various years and models...

Well, this is a rubbermount with what I'm pretty sure is the rubbermount Tsunami fender, but still good reference I think. Looks like 2-up is probably a go! And could look pretty great too

Did you ever find out if you could drill it for 2-up?

I’m sure it can be drilled for a pillion, my question is if the aluminum fender has enough strength to support a passenger? It might need a brace under the fender.

I ultimately decided to pass because I don't want to cut down the frame brackets for two reasons: 1) want to be able to go back in case I want a different style in the future, and 2) I think the straight horizontal fender bracket is a distinctive Harley styling trait that visually sets the brand apart from other makes, even if its not exactly "pretty" in its own right.

So I'm hunting for the shortest fender I can get that uses the stock mounting points. Preferably in a lightweight material.
