I have an 1981 GL500I silverwing that I would like to remove the fairing from

My ? is what do I need from a light stand point? Headlight, Turn Signals, Wiring?

Is there a kit I can purchase? I have remove the fairing before but that was just for cleaning

Please any help would be appreciated!

Thanks Steve

Steve, if you are considering to sell your fairing, let me know a price. Sorry I can't assist you with your immediate question, as I'm in the reverse situation. I'd eventually like to have a fairing option for my bike and I'm looking at all options.

Theres a lot you need, mine was an Interstate that someone turned naked, and they did a half ass job doing it, and parts are sorta hard to come by because the majority are No Longer Available, and the ones that are, are EXPENSIVE.



Front stock turn signals are especially difficult. New ones, just the housings, are $50 each.

Hi Steve,

The main things you will need is headlight, headlight mounts, and turn-signals. Getting these part will require some research on your part.

A lot depends upon if you are trying to get original parts or not. Stock part are harder to find and expensive. check out the Quick Reference

Thread in the General Discussion Forum. There is a lot of good info there. get a parts list for the GL500 and you can see exactly what is needed.

Many Honda motorcycles of that era have compatible parts. Including but not limited to GL500, CX500, Gl650, CX650, CB750, and GL1000.



It all depends on what you want to do. My GL500 had no front-end and when I rebuilt it, the job was a custom build. I have a small sport fairing with a bates

headlights and led turn-signals.





Goodluck, Charlie
