    Body Parts (fairings) Differences between the years

    This is for the 88-06 Kat 600 & 750's ONLY....................

    1988-1997, 600 & 750
    All tanks & plastics EXCEPT rear frame covers are the SAME. Only the colors and graphics changes from year to year and size to size...........
    600's: Tapered rear frame covers, tapering to a point in the rear, with a two piece seat. Rear grab bars are large and go AROUND the rear seat, almost horizontal.
    750's: Blunt rear frame covers with a TOP rear center piece and a small grab bar that is almost vertical.

    1998-2002
    All plastics, 600 & 750, totally interchangable. Tanks different from early Kats. This is the model with the bee-hive tail light.

    2003-2006
    All plastics, 600 & 750, totally interchangable. This is the model with the GSXR-like front fender and one piece rear tail.

    NOTE: 1998-2006 plastics, 600 & 750, tanks, main fairings, belly pans are interchangable! Only the front fenders and the tails changed!

    The tail sections from the 03-06 models will FIT the 98-02 models, but they require a different tail light and should use the rear under fender from the 03-06 models as well to fit right. This mod also requires a small flat plastic spacer piece under the tail which was not needed on the 98-02 models.

    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

    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.

    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?

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

    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)?

    I...





    I suppose if your going to modify the bike, you can make anything fit. Otherwise, NO... it's a completely different bike.


    Motorcycles are NOT legos.
