Ural Fairing: Does it fit on a Ural Retro without modification?

Knowledgeable Collective:

Does a stock (like the photo below) Ural fairing fit on a Retro without modification? I looked at the headlight ears, and it sure looks like it would bolt right up without any modification, but I wanted to be 100% sure.

Yes and no is the correct answer.

Physically they will fit, but there's a good possibility the headlight bucket supports may crack and it's not recommended by IMWA.
