Default Memphis Shades Gauntlet Fairing

A friend of mine wants a 1/4 fairing for his 48. he really likes the memphis shades gauntlet fairing, but they only go up to the 2015 48 or the 39mm fork size for pretty much all of their fairing styles that I can see.

Has anyone on here put one of these on their newer 41mm fork size 48? (2016-2018)

If not, does anyone recommend a 1/4 fairing style for the newer 2016 and up (2018) Forty Eights?

thanks

The ‘16 and newer Forty-Eights come with 49mm fork tubes; same size as later model Dynas and Softails.

Using brackets from Bung King, I moved an H-D Convertible windshield from my narrow-glide ‘98 XLH1200 to my mid-glide ‘15 XL1200CP.

I would think that a combination of brackets, spacers, and Harley fork clamps could be used to adapt the Gauntlet to a 49mm-fork Forty-Eight.
