07 GSXR headlight - March 23, 2009, 05:14 PM

so I am looking to put an 07 GSXR headlight on my '99 750

my main concern is that as I browse ebay...I also notice the headlight wiring harness is for sale (separately...wtf right?)

does the 07 GSXR headlight have a 3 pronged bulb? It doesn't look like it in some pics.
Can I put a 3 pronged bulb in there?? If I can...will I still need the wiring harness?? I think not..eh?

For example..the R6 headlight Castle is selling has 2 blue small connectors to get power to the headlight...obviously a different harness is required.

And if I do need that section of the wiring harness...is it a simple replacement of that section of my current wiring harness?

figure i'd ask here...i got 0 answers on gixxer.com first time that happened.

thanks

All head lights need a power supply and a ground to work. You have both of those. Don't sweat the connectors because once you get the head light you can mount it up and make one trip to radio shack and get the wire and connectors needed to hook the lights right into your stock harness.

Anyone know where i should start looking to locate the headlight groundwire?? (07 GSXR600)

Sometimes at start up the headlight does not come on and others it does.

I suspect a bad groundwire..

You can buy headlight wiring harnesses from ebay for a pretty decent price, or you can cut splice and solder a new one

Will this be easier than buying a new harness?
fyi, I'm not too electrically inclined..

then comes the issue of finding the groundwire and its location?

it's not like you got 2 grounds. One is a ground, the other is the power. Connect the ground to the front fairing brace (drill a hole, screw in a screw) and then connect the light. No brainer.
