Default 2nd or 3rd Gen Front on 1st Gen? Or? (fixing scratches)

Hey guys! I have searched extensively on this but can't find anything. I found a guy that put the catalyst fairings on with 636 headlights, but nothing on just converting to the new model front end.

Catalyst/636 btw:


I got my 650r preloved (see: dropped) and it has some scratches on it. Why a short women rider on a big bike would not install sliders is beyond me. She dropped it more than once too. Luckily its only the fairings that are scratched and a tiny bit on the right mirror.



What do you all think I should do?

A.) I could probably just do a little sanding and painting and call it a day.

B.) Catalyst race fairings and 636 lights $$$$$$$

C.) 650r new front and fairings (if info is provided)

D.) Try out something like this: Custom Kawasaki Ninja 650R ER-6f ER-6n 2006-2008 2007 ABS aftermarket Fairing 12 | eBay

E.) dude! like don't waste money on that 650r...if you wanna look like a sportbike just get a frickin 1000 if you wanna spend money man like i totally tell everyone this and no one seems to listen dude i know what im saying dude

If anyone has experience with ebay fairing kits please let me know too!

Thanks!

That ebay fairing set is actually for a 250, based on the pictures.

Correct. The pic is of the 250 fairings to show what the design looks like, but they send you 650 fairings.

I would just bondo and paint so much cheaper unless you wanted a different look. If you want a custom fabricator look that will be $$$$

Its an interesting thought putting a newer model fairing on a 1st gen bike. I wonder if its even possible, are the mounting points similar even?

But the sensible answer is to fill and sand it yourself and then let a spray shop fix the paint, it will be as good as new!

You could stick hyabusa fairings on a 650 if you really wanted to. Just depeneds on how much time, money, and TLC you want to devote to the bugger.

I love it when people get all curious and ask questions about mounting points and "bolt on" applications. When the simple fact is if you stray from oem 99.9% of the time you end up CUSTOME AND YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PUT SOME REAL THOUGHT/BRAIN POWER INTO IT, it aint like striking a match and smoking a bowl.

putting gen2 or gen3 fairings on an old 650 would be so easy, but lots lots lots of fun work.

p.s. keep in mind it helps when you have the TOOLS to fabricate anything you want.
