Im currently building a JPN replica can anyone help with headlight mounts for the twin headlight fairing, lights are 5.75" and the headlight nacelles are not much wider. I sourced a set of mounts but the mounting lugs on the outside of the rim took the overall diameter to 6.25"and these would not fit into the nacelle. If anyone out there has a JPN replica and has any pictures of the headlight mountings could you post a picture.

Hi Mick I must admit I don't have that particular supplement, I'm using a 750 catalogue for all the cycle parts. I'm not too sure if I'd be able to get them new but it's worth a try. cheers!
