i know stupid question.....

alright just put a competition werks fender elimanator kit on my bike. now I'm about to put on the flushmount hotbodies turn signals. I haven't taken off the front fairings yet on this bike just need a quick pointer on where all the screws are on the front. I took out the the ones over the turn signal and the one on the side the obvious one. now i'm looking around and unable to locate the ones that are still holding it in place.


I just thought I would ask real quick, before i go back out look around some more, while i was in the house.

again thanks for answering my lazy ass question.

sorry I forgot to say that it is on a 2005 gsxr 600

All the screws that go thru the fairing, some are hiding in the upper as well. Underneath should have a screw or 2 and the rest should be on the cage, im not a Zuki owner so i Hope that helps

sometimes it's held on with a rubber grommet also. just give it a tug. you'll be able to see if it hangs up anywhere

I don't think it was a stupid question...I'm actually glad you asked it...I'm just concerned that, here you are making mods to a bike you don't even know how to remove the fairings from...

well it is hanging on something in the back of the fairing towards the rear wheel. I'm asking on here the location of the connections basically.(out of lazyness i guess) i haven't went back out or had the time yet to look it over.

i always like to know where all the connection points are. i haven't had this bike that long so i know i'm missing something somewhere on there.

As for the mod I'm just putting in some flush mount turn signals. easy connection on every bike before i have had. so this one wants to confuse me. I only messed around with it for a few minutes. I put the fender eliminator kit on when i was through i messed around a sec with it.

Didn't have a whole lot of time so just thought i would ask on here.

Just razin ya!

I tend to just pull aroud the outside edge to find where it is being held up at.

take out all the screws you see... then start the pulling trick.

Then get a muffin pan or ice cube tray to help keep those screws sorted..
