Body work problems :)

Hi guys,

i'm having 1995 Fireblade with, what seems, a 1999 Fireblade fairings on (if i'm not mistaken). Check the attached photo.

I need information on fairings, conversion kits or whatever they're called. I want to know more about modding possibilities.

For instance, if i would be able to mod my bike in order to put on 954 fairings, things like that.

Any help is appreciated.

Not sure what that is protruding up from your seat, but I guess it keeps you firmly anchored, kinda like a reverse saddle horn. Must make it hard to hang off though.

Guys on here have used a variety of tails, not aware of anything that's a direct bolt on. The fairings would also require extensive mods I would think, given the mounting and shape of the headlights. That being said anythings possible if you have the time, $, resources,skill and desire.

Re: Body work problems :)

'97 CBR with 954 fairings.
Chinese but remarkably good quality, had the whole frame too hot to touch on our one summers day, no warpage or cracking.
They fit, straight on! The only alterations are to the front fairing support, you will need the 954 strut and the upper fairing bracket. I had to shorten and re-weld mine, not a big job. Also make up some adapter brackets for the sides.
The ram air tubes don't fit so a couple of plates need making to plug the gaps.
Cheers

Lol, it's the camera angle that makes it look awkward. that's just a beer bottle on a table behind the bike.

Damn man, that looks neat. Exactly what i had in mind. Tho, not sure about 1995 and 1997 chassis differences. Will the 954 fairings even fit? I'm pretty sure there will be some work involved into making it all fit together, but i wouldn't proceed with it if its big of a hustle...

Re: Body work problems :)

No hassles fitting. The alternator cover cut-out is exactly right, most of the mounting holes line up. You will need seat pads and headlights, which adds to costs.
I built this, literally, from E-Bay parts, staring with a gift of an engine and frame. Its been more the fun of seeing what could be done without spending ANY money.... I did spend a bit, but, the whole lot, including R1 forks and wheel, Aprillia swinging arm, CBR1000 rear wheel to match the Yamaha front, came to less than £1000. Been thrashing it for the last five years!
Only problem I've had was the distorted alternator cover allowing the rotor to rub the stator coils, wierd rubbin, grating vibe. Finally tracked that down last week, now as smooth as silk.

Re: Body work problems :)

Was just about to ask about the swinging arm, it looks good on Honda... Yea, i knew there will be some added expenses, like the headlights and stuff, but i'm prepared for that. I just don't want to get all the parts and to find out they cant be fitted on 1995...

Aight, guess i will do my parts hunting now Thank you man
