k8 gsxr 600 headlight..

is there a plastic mount to hold up the headlight, i dont mean the front fairing stay. What I am talking about actually holds the headlight in place, is it all part of the headlight itself or is it a seperate piece. thanks for the help. trying to rebuild my bike.

OK the best way to put everything back together.

First with the light off the fairing stay, attach the front cowling to the light, then attach the ram air ducts these are the pieces you are talking about, they don't really support the light much. once the air ducts are attached to there mounting point on the light you then attach the air duct cowling to the ram air ducts and front cowling. Now you should have the entire front light assembled once this is done, you then put the light back on the bike. Slide the whole light and fairings onto the bike, making sure the ram air ducts are in the holes on the side of the frame, then attach the light to the fairing stays with the two mounting screws. It's kinda crazy but believe it or not the entire front end is mounted to the bike with just those two screw, everything else just add a little support. If I was not clear please let me know, I will try my best to clarify everything.

Re: k8 gsxr 600 headlight..

I just have ripped my fairings off as I am putting on racefairings modiified to let me use the original head and taillight. The headlight is fastened to the frontfairing with no less than 7 screws and to the fairing horn with only 2 screws. The fairing horn is bolted to the frame and it is the part that also supports the instruments. Then the fairing is only bolted with the mirrors and beneath the footpegs. The rest is just fasteners pushed through rubbers grommets or plastics. The airducts is screwed into the bottom af the headlight and the sidefairings and help stabilize the headlight. Not much support really, but enough.
