What will the bike look like? Well it will look like whatever you put on it.

I met a rider who pulled his fairing removed a bunch of stuff like the headlight and replaced them with /6 parts. Now his bike looks like a /6 a big RS logo on the engine, and it was all just sooooo wrong


No it's not, it's part/connected to the frame's steering tube. The fairing is made to come clean off with only disconnecting the upper harness quick connect. 4 bolts and the mirrors and it's off in 5 minutes.

I'm not saying it looks good, but I rode mine for 2 months without a fairing, and it was fine, the light still stays in line as it would anyway with fairing.

When someone uses the term headlight ears, they usually mean the 2 triangular pressed flaps that have bolts on each side of the headlight (right?)
