  • I was just wondering about fairing kits. My main question is, I haven't found any fairing kits that come with the gas tank cover and im wondering, does the gas tank on Kat's non interchangeable with fairing kits (the plastic cover that would be removed and replaced)?

    • There isn't a plastic cover on a KAT tank, it's all steel.

      • Alright thats what I was assuming after seeing them. So then essentially you would have to paint your tank if you wanted it a different color or pattern?

              It is a steel tank, there is no cover! So if you buy one of those "china" made plastic kits, you either have to paint tank to match or get a kit that matches the tank.

              • 1999 katana

                Sorry for the noob question. I have a 99 katana and I just purchased the fairing kit from China, the only thing is that the tail is 2003. I'm on eBay right now ready to purchase the 03-06 tail light but my question is:

                Is the wire behind the 2003 tail light (the one you connect to the motorcycle) compatible with my 99 motorcycle? Because it looks kinda different. Please forgive the rookie question but I do thank you in advance for helping me out.

                  the lights are the same, but the plugs may be different forcing you to cut and splice manually
