How to retrofit 2013 fairings on 03-04

I bought my 03-04 as a streetfighter and I am looking into buying the better looking 2013 zx6r fairings. Do I need anything else besides the fairings and a shit-ton of zipties ? I don't want to replace the tail btw, only the nose and side fairings.
Also it looks like there are more people who did that

I know the 09-12 and the 13+ airducts are different shapes but that shouldn't matter to much considering their is no ram Airduct. So that bracket you have in the first add will allow you to fasten the tachometer and uppers to the frame.

Not sure on side panels and belly though....

I didn't ask for opinions on how it looks, I asked for help on doing it. My bike doesn't have fairings anyways so I don't lose anything by retrofitting 2013 fairings as I need to dress her up anyway.

Cant you find some bodywork correct for your year/model? I think your gen looks way better than the 2013.

I would think that a race fairing would be easier to fit than OEM parts, on a bike that does not have the correct anchor points. One complete skin, rather than many pieces...... less points that have to match perfectly.

This would also make the intake less of a problem, if there is nothing that lines up with it. The headlight areas are filled in, so you can cut out whatever part you need, for whatever lights you choose. Much simpler to line up home made brackets that way.

To me race fairings with improvised headlights look like shit. I'd rather have the fancy looking stock headlights than those round ones.

Someone else in here did it. I just can't remember who. I'll see if I can find it.

You could still mount OEM lights.... Just a lot more work, and probably very difficult to get it right. I've seen tiny projector headlamps mounted below the nose.... That looks okay to me...

I can see your problem, you want fairing but are restricted by price and/or availablity.

I think that trying to get a 2013 fairing to fit is going to be a lot of issues and might look like a dogs dinner if you do manage to crowbar it into position, it all depends how good a problem solver you are.

Any 03/04 BH1 or K1 fairing should fit onto the original mounts and look the part, have you still got original headlights and clock mounting on your bike?

You could go down the race fairing road, I have some race fairings if you are interested but the shipping will be a fair chunk of money, the trouble is cutting out the holes for the headlights, it is a tricky job to do and not make it look like complete amateur job.....I would'nt fancy doing it anyway. Race fairings are much thinner than the original and made of fibre glass and a shit to cut cleanly.

If it was my problem, I would be looking at trying to get some original equipment fairing even some scuffed stuff that you could repair. As said before, the 03/04 is a pretty timless design that works really well.

I have an 03-04. Without the stock fairings the headlight cluster will fall off the bike...AT BEST. On this bike you need the FULL fairing, you can't have the front piece only, as the left and right sides hold up the front piece.

converting this bike to a street fighter, you will need to figure out a way to secure the headlights...OR replace them.

...good luck, you have been warned.
