It will be more windy. :) It will be lighter and quicker to accelerate.

The only thing you need to make sure you do is to remove the weight from the front of the triple tree, I believe the headlight mounts there anyway, so no big deal. This weight is to increase the resonant frequency of the steering system when the fairing is in place, to prevent "tank slappers."

no the headlight doesnt mount on the fairing weight brackets ive just done the naked thing look on Evilbay for the correct fork ears for your 82 you might find some going for a good price dont get any from any lower years as they dont fit the headlight should also be in Evilbay make sure its the correct type as most of the wiring has to fit in the back of it . also where the black plastic half moon shaped bit of the fairing that hold the brake lines in you can replace with a smaller bracket and then a Honda screw on badge goes over it
