You should be able to find a harness that plugs into the bike wiring and goes to the fairing and a fairing wiring harness pretty easily. In fact I have the fairing harness but I don't think I have the sub harness for the bike end.

As William said, you need to start with the wiring diagrams. To put the fairling on, you will need to remove the standardheadlight and turn signals. Behind the headlight there is a maze of wiring probably plugging into an array of connectors. What you need and will have to make is a patch cable to go from those connectors to the connector on the left side of the fairing. I assume the fairing cabling is still there and in good shape. Good luck and keep us informed of your progress.

Make sure you use the counter weight where the headlight bucket was on the naked bike.
