Round headlight fairing

I'm after a 92/93 CBR900RR, with twin round headlights, unfortunately these are few are far between in good condition at a reasonable price?

Is this top round headlight fairing compatible with the '94 forever bike of which there are more to choose from? ie can i back date a 94 to 92/93 looks simply by swapping the top half of the fairing?

Re: Round headlight fairing

Not quite as up to speed with he UK stuff, but in the states the round sealed beam lights were used on US spec 93- 94 models. I think the UK 94 models started the "fox eye" trend not seen in the US until 95. If that's the case, the middle fairing was made at a different angle where it lines up to the upper fairing. So my guess is the upper round headlight fairing from UK 92-93 will not match up with 94 UK fox eye mid fairings. I'm guessing, so you'll need to do some more research.

Re: Round headlight fairing

This version of the 'foxeye'.

From studying pictures the parting lines look very similar

Yes, I agree. However I do remember reading back when the U.S. 95 model came out that the upper and middle fairings weren't exactly the same angle as the predecessor. I guess either someone that has done it with success or not will have to chime in, otherwise it would have to be a gamble on your part.

Re: Round headlight fairing

Thanks - it's proving hard enough to find a upper fairing. If I do go down this route it may be easier to change the whole front fairing with new (93 style) parts that can be found on eBay.

The next question will be does anybody have any experience with these parts?

Thanks Ian, I am having my decal dude make me tail light and round eye decals for my spare bodywork, so at least it looks like a street bike.
