I think you misunderstood me. The headlight mount is part of the fairing mounting support structure which is connected to the steer tube, which is why it stays straight when you turn.

It's not part of the actual fairing it's part of the metal structure that the faring bolts to. At least that's the way it is on my 77 r100rs

The headlight stays straight and is little further forward then normal, the brackets or ears that hold it also have two pieces of tubing attached to them, which serve as the mounting structure for the fairing.

You can unbolt the fairing and remove it and the light stays put, but it's not a normal headlight mount.

Here's Bs bike from his post.



Though the headlight is further forward it stays with the bike.
