The tail fairings are the only thing that is different. BUT that means the taillight is different. So you would have to buy a new taillight and possibly the black tray piece that holds the taillight, the seat is different as well but I would think the fairings would still be fine. Other than that they'll mount up no problem. :thumb:

yup, the tail light is different. your 97 fairings go with an oval taillight and the the 96 is square. the 97 tail is also a little more pointed and rounder. i think it may take some effort to get the 97 tail on your 96. i have a 98 and had to be careful when getting new parts for my tail. i eventually when with a cheetah racing skin fiberglass one piece. after paint and everything it was around 300. a little cheaper than oem. you are going to be better off getting the correct rear for your bike just to avoid the headache. i don't think you would have trouble selling the tail pieces from the 97 anyway.

They mount up perfectly fine. You'll need the taillight, seat and the little metal bracket that holds the taillight from a 97-98 to make it look perfect and streetable, but the actual subframe it mounts to is the same.
