Are the frames different on the pre and post, or arethe mounting holes for the plastics in just different locations? Just wondering how hard it would really be to put say 1998 bodywork on a 1990 600.

Yes they are different. It's been done, but takes a lot of work.

not real sure why you would want to make a pre ugly with post bodywork

My plastics are pretty beat up, and the wife wants my katana after I get myself a bigger bike (she wants a Ninja 250 to learn on first though). She likes the look of my friends Busa, and I figured the post kats are a little closer looking to that so..

Can u put a pre 600 tail section on a pre 750. Is it a direct bolt on or does it take some work to make it fit. My friend has a 96 750 but hates how big his tail light is and likes how my 600 one looks. And if it is swapable can he still use his single seat or does he have to use the 600 two seat.

the 2 welded in cross brackets are different and at the minimal would need to be changed to do the swap. not hard, if you know someone who can weld and have a donor sub frame. Other than that, it's just swap all the parts.

And yes, to do the swap that way would require the use of the 600 seat.

Now, if you wanna go totally custom, you might be able to work out a way to use the 750 seat with creative use of brackets made from scratch.

the locking/latching systems are completely different between the 2 though.

You'd have to cut the rear sub frame, and reweld. Blazerzr2 has done this.
