Now that you're going to lose the upper parts of your fairings, it looks like you're going to lose a few switches, too. A lip or two behind the windscreen (maybe with a hollow channel down the back side to route a wire or two) may be a nifty spot to mount a switch. Thoughts?
I don't see why you couldn't do this. Heck, spray the inside of a stock screen black and have at it - its not like you ever look through the thing.

Here's a bigger photo of the area
