With a little work, yes.

The critical features (hole locations, etc.) are all in the same locations. The only difference is that the hole diameters for mounting to the head. The S2 had 2 different size mounting holes. Front isolator mounts for the later Buell-specific heads had both mount bolts the same size.

To make an S2 front isolator mount work on another tuber, it's as simple as drilling the small sized hole out to the same size as the larger hole.

Before you drill one out, I'd verify that the heads do have 2 bolts/bolt holes that are the same size - measure twice, cut once...
