Fairing Removal and new light

Postby mikemanczur » Wed Mar 30, 2016 11:35 am



I am removing the fairing on my 1983 GL1100I and it has the wire box and weight. Is there a cover for that so I can remove the weight or do I need to rewire everything? I want to put an aftermarket headlight on. Any help would be appreciated.

if you are ditching the fairing then ditch the weight and bracket. The headlight pod held all the wires and connections. If you are not going back to standard then you will need to rewire it.

The weight was to counter act the fairing weight.

Thank you! That is what I thought. I usually know the answer to my own question. I just need to hear that I am right sometimes or need confirmation. Funny
