Swap k4+ Windscreen into k3?

I am 6'4" tall, and I am sick of my K3 'windscreen' acting to knock my head around on the freeways.

Before I give up and rip the front fairings off, Can someone please post a link to the article which answers this certainly obvious question (I've given up searching for it by now):

Can I swap a K4+ windscreen bracket into my K3 fairing?

The adjustability and likelihood of a satisfactory MBR option piques my interest.

I bought a better helmet, and am much happier on my brother's SV without the buffeting... but I am unhappy with the ride posture, being so tall.

With thanks, wishing for my chocolate cake, and then to eat it:

The pre-2004 fairing's subframe does not have the necessary bracketry to accept the 2004+ windshield mount. You would have to swap out the entire upper fairing and subframe to update to the '04 windshield. There are several aftermarket windshield for the pre-'04 that you could try. Take a look at http://mpcycledesign.com/.
