Used to look through it with absolutely no buffeting.
I cut it down to look over it and get some buffeting at about 80.
I probably should have cut it down only 1 inch.

wife got the full size detach for her 05 eagle,,,, then had it cut down for her height.
when sitting on seat,  windshield should be even with the point of your nose.

I was able to actually try a RK detachable on my Fatboy a couple weeks ago.  A guy at work has one and we tried the swap.  As stated before, the RK mount is a bit too wide.  I was able to flex the windshield enough to install the lower mount.  The RK mount is about 1/8" wider than the Fatboy mount.  
The main problem is the RK mount is physically shorter and won't engage the top locking mount but instead will pass just under it.  If I decide that I absolutely have to have the shorty RK deflector on my bike, I can come up with some sort of adapter bracket.
For now, it's fine the way it is.

like I said earlier, the adjustable windshield came off an 03 Fatboy which is wider (forks) than the 06 SE.   I got the chrome spacers (.75" upper and .50" lower) and they fit fine.  Windshield is too tall and needs to be cut down a bit.  The way it is now in the picture, is at its lowest level.  I can raise the windshield by about 4-5 inches.

Just found this post.   The answer to that would be NO.  the front ends are different.
