Question for street going track bikes

Im currently building a full on track k7 600 and already got the track fairings but Im trying to keep it road legal at a weekends notice without swapping the whole fairing set over or cutting the plastics. Anyone out there have a suggestion for removable, tail lights and head lights that dont require cutting?

I know sharkskinz make track fairings and they has 2 kinds, full race fairings, and then street/race fairings. The front has room for the headlight, and can't remeber if the tail has room for lights or u would have to cut them in...

I knew about the sharkskinz but ended up buying some used fairings for a good deal that are full on race plastics. Im not tryin to cut them so Im lookin for a tail light and headlight I can bolt up and take off easily.

Buy a few LED flashlights and make a bracket to hold them under the nose. No headlight assembly or wires to disconnect.


You'll probably have to cut a small hole in the tail for the brake light though. Make it easily removable somehow...I don't really know how. But if you make it all work post it up. I might be doing the same thing in the future. Good luck.

I need to check on my state laws about the flashlights. Ill post back up with whatever I do just in case someone wants to do as I do. I haven't seen this topic on this forum yet.

TAIL LIGHT ..... could you just cable tie a tail light to the top of the race tail section?

Why can't you just keep the OE fairings and lights and swap them out with your race fairings when you want to switch back and forth?! That's what u plan to do with my k7 this year.

I did that for one year, but then got tired of it. It's a pita to swap the fairings all the time.

Problem solved, but now I run slicks, I have to swap the wheels.

Here are a couple photos of my wife's motorcycle, Z-woman if you will. She is in the same boat, wants to ride the street, doesn't want to crash and mess up her street fairings. As her chief mechanic, I much prefer working on bikes with track fairings due to it only taking two minutes to pull off all the bodywork. Currently her upper and lower are sharkskinz street fairings. We just tape up the headlight when we go to the track.

YES! this set up looks sick on your bike. I may just have to copy it. Number plates might get a little tricky though.
