Hi guys
I'm toying with doing this mod
And fitting a GTV front mudguard and headlamp onto my GTS

What I'm
Asking is
A) will it fit my GTS
B) any other issues I've not thought of that you have please ?
C) I assume I'd need the dust/wire covers under the mudguard as well and possibly some loom or wiring

Endulge me
John

I'm pretty sure I've seen a dual headlamped GTS on here before.
The metalwork is all the same between GTS and GTV so it will go, but you'll need some wiring and may need to drop the forks to get to the mudguard to drill holes etc.

It's a definite project for me
Anything is possible !

When you speak of dust/wire covers, isn't there a metal support under there as well? (or maybe it's part of the mudguard itself)

In honesty I'm not sure and sadly
I don't have access to a GTV to have a look
It's really an idea that I'd like to pursue
I plan on have a look when I've got the mudguard and lamp in my hand tbh

Yes it can be done.
As much as I really liked the idea of this mod for my GTS 300, after doing some research the GTV fender light on a GTS install was not worth the investment. I even considered the GTS 250 Horn Cover Light instead. In Toronto most of the folks that did this type of install purchased the GTV fender light from scoots that were wrecked. Consider it a transplant.

check this old post. GTV fender light on a GTS

Below is a picture of bagel's GTS.
