Sorry if I am repeating a topic here, but......
I was just wondering, I wasnt to update the body work on my '93 tuna.

Is there any body work that is compatable with my bike besides the stock replacement stuff? Like something from a GSX-R. I want to make the bike look more modern that it is. I'd also like to know how much work is involved, price andy anything else you guys and gals can tell me. Again, sorry if I am repeating something!

There are no simple bolt-on fairings that update the style that I am aware of. There is a rear cowl available for it from BraadaConcepts (manufactured by one of the two guys who own this forum).

Aside from that, a number of members with bodywork experience have fabricated up all sorts of innovative one-off solutions, from BraadaJim who mashed together late-model and earlier-model fairings in such a way that's seamless, to guys who replaced the entire rear subframe (the part that supports the seat & tail) with new ones to use other tails such as R6/R1 tails. If you are good with bodywork and patient, you can do almost anything, but let me say that it definitively takes talent, practice, patience and imagination.
