Default Gauntlet fairing on 99 Sport?

Most of the Gauntlet 1/4 fairings I'm finding say they do not fit a Sportster Sport. Anyone have an idea why not? A modification I can do to make it work?

Thanks.

I know some small fairings are made to fit with just a central mounted speedo, not the twin gauges that a sport would have. Might be the reason?

I've got a small flyscreen on my '99 1200S and it covers the gauges just fine. So the only thing I can think of as to why they say the gauntlet-style won't fit is that maybe the fairing won't let you access the front suspension adjustment knobs at the top of the forks. If that's it, who cares b/c once you set it you're probably not going to touch it again.
