i bet it can with some heavy modification, but it goes to the upper fairing stay not the frame. i bet just bending the upper fairing stay(bracket) it could fit, but you have to add the side fairings, headlight, ram air, etc. just go with the '00 conversion.

there are a couple of ways of doing this. I found this to be the easiest. First you need these parts: 1. 00-02 front fairing 2. 00-02 wind screen 3. 00-02 ram air system ( intake lip, left & right ducts with chambers) 4. gauge bracket (also holds new fairing in place) 5. 00-02 headlight assembly with wiring harness.

The fairing is a direct bolt on. remove old gauge bracket and replace with new one. transfer gauges to new gauge bracket you have to fit them and then attach them you have to get creative cause the 98-99 gauges are a little different. attach ram air to air box. put lights on and then fairing with windscreen.if you want the small tiangular light to be on then you have to splice into the wiring harness.

If you need more detailed info let me know but once you get all the parts and remove all the 98-99 parts it is pretty easy just swap parts.

P.s. I have the 00-02 upper fairing and gauge bracket if you want to buy them (i'm in NY 2)

Later.

I am also interested in converting my 98 to 00-02 head lights. Actually I have no choice because my cousin flipped my bike, and I need an upper new faring and headlight anyways

Hi i have all the necesary parts to convert my 99 model front end to the newer J model front, only thing I have found is that the wiring connectors for the clocks and headlight are different. Dont suppose anyone can help with how to rewire them?? or atleast supply a wiring diagram for a J model please.

for the most part everything went well with the conversion. as stated before i still have anomolies with the 2001 wiring harness. if someone has a diagram of the wiring and you could send it to me that would be fabulous. otherwise, its going to be a couple of days before i can get the book shipped to me.

all in all the major changes are the following:
wiring harness and ecu
ram air
ferring brackets

and that is it!
cheers!

Yeah Guys just wanted to let you know I did the Conversation on Saturday. It only took a couple hours too. If I knew what I was doing I could of cut the time in half. The biggest problem was the wire.

If your interested in doing the conversation these are the parts you need.

00, upper fairing
00 headlight assembly
00 wiring harness
00 gauge bracket
00 wind screen

in serious need of some pictures of the bike completely wired to the major ignition eletronics, coil, battery, kickstand cutoff, and proper grounding this would help tremendously. i have completely built the bike from pieces and this is all i need to finish to get me running! please please please help!

im specifically concerned with how the coil connects, because there are totally different connections on the 98 and the 2001. the rear turn signals are weird too.

thanks
