If your local wrecking yards can't help, there's always eBay.

Try these guys. I don't see any parts listed, but I know they have an Ebay store with many parts pages. Maybe a phone call?

Good luck on the lights...

Converting to xenon lights? As in just buying different bulbs or doing a true HID conversion?

Some Bandit parts might work, you might try crossing part numbers to see.

Check out these guys. Call them rather than e-mail, I don't think they are too e-mail savvy. They claim to have a huge inventory of japanese retro bikes and parts.

here is an article about fixing a gsxr1100. I had intimate knowledge of the bike. The restoration came out pretty good. http://www.sportriders.com/Gsxr/page1.cfm

there are bunch of sources referenced in the article.

Good luck.

Toss the plastic, bolt on a pair of bugeye headlights, knock a tooth or two off of the countershaft sprocket, install a triple crown for regular handlebars..... viola! Instant king of the street.
