If you do it like Blaine (with the shorter nonS stalks) - remove the black plastic do-nuts from the turn signals. The signals will then mount normally.
What are these black plastic do-nuts your speak of? Haha

Blaine,
I fitted a genuine cockpit fairing to my R100 using the stock, short front indicators. You have to remove the hard rubber inserts on the indicator bodies where the stalk passes through. This then gives enough length on the stalk to pass through the fairing and be able to be clamped within the indicator body.
The fairing flexes enough to fit over both short stem stalks in situ. Just pass over one first and then the other.
Some pictures below. Any more info just ask.

Just to clarify, this thread is over a year old. I've removed and installed that fairing maaaany times over :)
I'm just answering the person that re-vised the thread.

Yep, Dave did it the way I know about. Remove the hard black plastic donut from the signal body. It's a separate piece and pops out - not easily, but it will!

Now I know why I have no clue what you're talking about....I've only ever had metal body turn signals
