04 suzuki gs500f
« on: January 14, 2013, 03:48:04 pm »
hey guys im new to this forum, but i need a lil hlp . i have a 04 suzuki gs500f that i bought, it has been laid down and all the plastics on the front are gone but i am thinking about doing a streetfighter or cafe kinda look on it, but i am wondering about how to mount the headlight and turn signals on the front and if maybe theres a place to buy a mount already modified for the new lights? or if u have any other ideas for me??  :beg

There are companies that make headlight mounting ears to fit on various sized forks. As midnight said though, fork diameter is the same iirc between the newer faired GS twins as the older naked ones so the mounts should work.

squeak. I streetfightered my ninja 250.  I just went and got some pipe hanger and home depot and made a bracket to attach to my forks.  Went to autzone and got some lights and Bim Bam Boom!  It isnt Super bright, but gets the job done.

I think I have a headlight streetfighter setup laying around that Trav-A$$ bought from lukenukeem. Has hasn't had the chance to come by and pick it up. Mught give him a shout through pm and see if he want to sell it. if so I could find away to get it to you.

It just straps on with rubber straps around the fork.
