The fairing appears to be fixed with Jubilee clips. https://www.dealerwebsusedbikes.co.u...2QxZDk1YmE.jpg

A lot of the 1/4 fairings, being sold, use the HD docking hardware. HD also makes a quick release docking system too. You wouldn't, by chance, be looking for the latest fad of mounting a FXR style fairing (Old cop style FXRP)?

Well, you know some Harley riders like to Clean their bikes, alot, and a quick release would do the trick. I see what you mean by preventing theft.

The quick release clamps look like a good idea but I've only come across ways to use them with the 39mm narrowglide fork or the 49mm dyna/softail fork. The one instance I have found where someone tried to use them on the XL1200CX said they wouldn't work because of the taper. That's why I asked here. To see what Roadster owners were doing. Not a lot of talk about fairings on '16 and up Roadsters. Speaking of 49mm forks, is the 48 fork the same as the BT's?

When I was looking up 1/4 fairings on the web, most companies offered a Harley Accessory part number with their fairings. Their fitment charts showed which brackets work with which models. MoCo brackets designed for your bike would take the taper into consideration.
(as far as I know the '48' has the same forks as the other Sportsters, just a wider set of "trees")

Exactly, and you'll notice none of them list kit's for the XL1200CX. The 48 did use the same 39mm forks as other Sportsters in midglide trees from 2010 till 2014, there was an internal change in 2015, and then went to a 49mm in the 2016 model year. I was hoping someone with some first hand experience with this would chime in with what the did, but it appears I may eventually end up being the person who gains that first hand experience. Thank you for the suggestions, I do appreciate that you took the time to respond. I'll continue looking for solutions.

Have looked at how harley mounts their cx windshield? I know it is ugly but it may give you ideas how to mout other fairings. The forks are 55mm od where my clip-ons are attached but i am not sure if they taper down.

That's interesting, the clamp on the fork tube appears to be the 49mm quick release clamp. I wonder if the same clamp would fit lower on the fork tube where the diameter appears to increase. If so, then it would just be a matter of matching the offset of the fairing brackets to the width of the fork tubes.
