Dan, I would call J&P customer service and ask them.
A guy can make anything work, but some things require more work than others.
I replaced mine almost 20 years ago, I don't remember having much trouble. I know I didn't have to drill any new holes.
I did have to move some wires, but it wasn't a big deal.
Your model bike is very popular, I would think someone would have a direct fit replacement. J&P was very helpful to me back then, I'm sure they would know.
