      HEy there guys, I am new here, and am looking to do some mods to my '06 Kat. I am wondering what all is interchangable though and also what years. Is anything interchangable from the gsxr to the gsxf? I have searched and searched, but found few aftermarket fairings or anything really for my gsxf600. If anyone can give me advice, please do. Thanks guys and the site looks good.

          hey guys, quick question. i am trying to fix up my bike i got some plastics, and i am missing some bolts. do you think it is worth it to get a whole fairing bolt kit and replace all of them or should i just get some bolts from a hardware store. if so what size bolts and everything would i need for it.

          and i know there is a post somewhere about this but i couldnt find them.
          i think im leaning towards the whole kit, cuz they will be all chrome, rather than painted and they will match.

          thanks in advance

              read the first post of this thread! haha at least with fairings that will answer your question.
              as for the rest im sure it can be done with mods obviously, unfortunately i do not have much experience in the matter, only what i have picked up from being on here

                Not to be a douche here, but if you want a GSXR body and engine, why not just buy a GSXR rather than spend all that time trying to incorporate all that into a Kat. Just makes no sense to me. Maybe I'm dumb. I don't know.

                  is it possible to swap the tail plastic from a 98-02 to a 93.

                    Ok from what I have found the fenders changed in 03, they got wider right? how much wider? They also changed how they mount. I have an 05 that was missing the front fender when I bought it. I found one from a 99 will it work?

                      So if I buy a full fairing kit for an 03, to put it on my 99 I will need a new tail light, a spacer for the rear, a new cable for the latch, and is there anything else. Also, will the front fender not fit right?

                        The fenders are different. The fender you have now is attached at the top the 03 bolts on the sides. Check out some pictures on the site and check the years you will see what I mean.

                            Good luck to you on finding new old stock fairings for a pre! there just isn't much out there anymore. You can find some good used ones once in a while on ebay or craigslist or on here. I have come to the realization that you will have to be able to fix what you have.

                                which company, Maiers????
                                Last I checked they only had one side available. Yes the new ones are pricey if you find them. http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/...7501988-97.htm you can get fiberglass from these guys but again very pricey for shipping just because of size and where they are coming from. http://www.maier-mfg.com/catalog/suz...a-fairing-side
                                here is maiers site. only have rightside main not the left
