    Interchangeable from a 750 to a 600?

    Good point Arsenic your right. Sometimes the difference on in part numbers on body stuff is the color or finish.

    For the parts your looking for I'd consider them interchangeble 89 to 96.

    1996 katana 600 undertail plastics

    Hey guys I bought a 96 katana off of a guy who was trying to make it into a naked bike and gave up in the process. It sat for a couple years and he lost all the hardware and bolts. Lucky I have most of the fairings but I'm missing the undertail plastics to mount the license plate, light, and turn signals.

    Do any of you know whether these are interchangeable with a 88-97 750? I've found one on eBay and wondering if I should even bother or just make due with what I have.

    Thanks in advance!

    98 - 02 are the same pieces- no modification needed. the 03+ will fit an 02, except for the tail section as they changed around the brake light.
    what piece did you mess up? and how badly? chances are you'l be able to fix yours with a little elbow grease and patience....

    I have a 02 Katana and saw in a previous posting that the fairrings are compatiable from 98-02 but I was wondering if there was any modifications that would be needed or would they just bolt on?

    Had a bit of a mishap in the fall time and I am trying to get fairrings that i do not have to modify other that paint. I hear the ones from Hong Kong aren't great cause the bolt holes do not match up.

    When you say, newer ones... you mean the GSXF's? Because my guess is they are totally different since the frames are based on the old Bandit.

    So I just bought a 2000 kat 600 with a busted front headlight assembly. This is my second katana in the 98-02 range. I have never really been a fan big two eyed headlights. Since this one is busted I figured Id see if it is possible to switch the headlight with the newer ones (kind of pointy singular looking version) without too much modding?

    I know ebay has full sets for like $550 for the post... they might have pre sets too. Only thing is, they're from China.

    Unless you find a shop that has left over "OEM fairings lost in a wharehouse", your looking at purchasing used... or unpainted aftermarket fairings. Painted sets with decals are mostly obsolete, and prohibatively expensive ($500+ for one upper main side for example...)

    Do any pre front fenders fit the 98-02? There's a ton of them on eBay, and by the pics they look the same from like 88+
