GSXR750 Bodywork mods

Has anyone tried installing GSXR1000 (2001) bodywork (specifically race tail and upper fairing) on a 1999 GSXR750? Thanks

Welcome to TWF. Glad to have you hear. The tail should fit with no problem but the fairings may not. The holes I don't think are going to line up.

Yeah it wont work unless you drill new holes. I have both of those bikes and thought about doing the same thing. You will need some bondo and filler too

Thanks everyone for your fast response. I've seen the tail on a 99 before, but I'm more concerned about the upper front fairing (nose). It looks like it will work with a little mod, but I don't want to buy one and then get stuck with nothing more than a nice piece of plastic for my wall.

Yeah it is going to be a huge job. I would just spend the 350 bucks to buy new bodywork.

So what you are trying to say is that by the time you would be done, that the body work would look like swiss cheese with all the spare mounting holes??

Yeah, if you want a discount on some bodywork let me know and I will help you. I can get the whole set for like 300 bucks. fender, upper, lower and tail. Hit it with a 400 grit and paint.

Thanks Twisty for all help. Is the bodywork you are talking about for a 1999 or 2001?
