This mod also requires a small flat plastic spacer piece under the tail which was not needed on the 98-02 models.
    Hi,
    I'm tempted into switching tails, searched diagrams of OEM parts and it seems like both models, i.e 600 98-02 and 750 03-06 have the same underfender, OE part number being 63111-08FB0-291, so what does the OP mean by having to use an under fender from a 03-06?

    And what's that flat plastic spacer? any pics? can it be substituted with any spacer or is it specific in shape?

    Found this set of rear plastics including the tail light in the exact same color of my bike for just under 50 euros .. what else would I need to retrofit them to my 600 2000?

    Grateful for any help!

    Extensive. Will include welding/cutting. Not going to be a simple mod.

    It's a rubber mat, hooks over the oil cooler lines at the top of the cooler, and lays over the top of the engine. It's only found on 750s.

    It's a heat shield and as the name describes, an air guide. It helps to prevent the heat from the engine cooking the fuel tank and wires.


    If you have one, I would suggest you use it. There isn't even a small reason to remove it. If you don't have one, I wouldn't say it's necessary to purchase in most locations unless your already dealing with heat issues like boiling the gas tank or things of that nature. If you ride in excessive heat locations, it certainly will help you out.

So I thought, no big deal, I'll upgrade to the newer body. My question concerns the tail light. Is the tail light bracket the same from 99-02 and 03-06? Or do I need to modify it to accept the 03-06 tail light? I checked www.cheapcycleparts.com and the 99-02 bracket comes with the taillight so no part number to compare (from what I can see anyway).
    The bracket is not the same, buy a bracket or a tail light with the bracket off ebay.

    I just got some fairings from a 09 but as im looking at it in person they are 100% different from my 99 fairings and the headlight are different as well. anyone know if it will still fit I would hate to have to pull everything off only to found out it wont fit. I get the feeling I might have to make it work somehow.
