Ahhh... My hole front Fairing is loose...The little screws that hold the headlight to the main peice of plastic that bolts to the frame are striping out... What a shitty design... I see that they improved it on the newer models... Any of you guys find a fix for this yet? Will the newer faring/ mirror bracket fit in our bikes... Thanks Guys, Dave

It is a crappy design. I've seen so many busted up headlights. If it's not busted up i would think you could use bigger screws to make new threads in the plastic. If its busted then either buy a new headlight or make some homemade brackets to brace it. I had to do that for a while till i got my new headlight from ron ayers for $221. Good luck.

Yeah, that headlight mounting design sucks balls on these models. All my tabs are broken so I made some "L" brackets up and it is pretty sturdy(Until I hit the lottery and can afford a brand new shiny headlight)

Yeah the light is still good... May be I'll take it all apart this winter and make my own bracket that will fit like the new gixxer's...
