mounting a race body on a gsxr1000k6

Yes live in the houston, tx area and have a gsxr1000k6. I'm trying to mount a racing body to it but mount the front headlight. Is this possible or I'm I wasting my time. I do ride the curves alot on sunday morning. But mainly just trying to go for the whole racing look and this is the one area of the project that is holding me back. So that is the reason I need to know. Thanks for any help.

You can cut out a slot for the headlight. Steady hand.

Yeah I can cut the hole and all but how would I mount the head lamp. I ask since it mount to the front of the bike not to a bracket on the bike

Good question I guess. My headlight mounts to the fairing stay and then a couple screws hold the nose fairing to the headlight. I dont know.

I know many that use race body on the street. I've used them to. I usually just cut small hole for driving lights that you can get at any automotive store with custom brackets. Iv also used stock lights.
I make a tinplate from the outline of the stock body. I trace it onto the track body. Then I use a dremel to cut the hole. I start very tight and test fit. Then after many trims and refits. Its done. Then the paint can be added. and take your time. The odd shape of the Gixxer light will be a challenge to make look good.
