    Like Arsenic said, it isn't the tail that is different. You might see a difference in tail light if the owner changed the stock one to a after market one.

    I want to use 01 fairings on my 99 I see that the tail is different will I have to do any mods to make the tail fit. And what about the seat will I also have to get a new seat?

    So if I'm understanding this right 98-06 fairing and 03-06 tail will fit on my 99... but I would still have to upgrade the tail light and headlight and whatever else? So that means it should be plug and play I shouldn't have to do any cutting.

    Thanks, I'm trying to get parts together to sell my kat... almost 20,000 miles in a year for $2100 so needless to say it has served me well.

    Yes. The frames are essentially the same. However if you wanted to put the Post-98 body on you would have to swap the ENTIRE bracketry and body from another bike to make it go smoothly or Good Luck!

    I have a 1996 GSX600F. First bike, runs fine, but I need new fairings pretty much all around. My question is, has anyone heard of putting a different year fairing on a 96? Is it possible to modify in any way to use, say, a 1998 fairing set?

    Better idea.....just put your 750 motor and front end onto that bike. Less work than cutting and welding a tail section on. Could be done in a weekend.

    hmm there is a 600 katana in my town that the guy wants 500 bucks for. He ran it into a parked car so the front forks are destroyed. But it runs still and the tail end is good. It could be a good donor for this.

    I apologize if this is a noob question, but I have a 1991 gsx750 but I really like the look of the 600 rear frame covers and seat. Has anyone ever switched the rear frame covers from a 600 onto a 750 bike? I just like the more pointed ducktail look of the 600s.
