Don't know if it'll fit without mods, but I'm sure you can make it fit. I think a couple of issues will be seat and pillion mounting, and possibly battery. You might have to modify the sub-frame, but you can buy those on eBay all day long. It might be easier until someone had made race plastic for the '03 and use that.
Nope, the frame is all new and completely redesigned. The mounting points will be different entirely. On top of that, the ram air is totally relocated for 2003.
By the way, anybody see the trick new removable rear fender on the new bike? Wow, no need for an eliminator kit anymore, that's gonna save me a few bones. Just gotta mount some signals and a plate on some type of mounting bracket which should be easy...
What I've heard you CAN do is mount the front fairing from the 2000-2002 zx6r onto the 98-99 bike without TOO much difficulty, although I never did that myself. But then, the frame wasn't changed in 2000, and the ram air location was at least similar.
you need the sub frame, the tail.. the seat, and tank.. the seat will not line up with your current tank and leave a gap.. well you can repad your seat and fill in the gap.. You might also need a welder to make brakets to make the sub-frame fit better onto the frame.
