My gen4/5 hybrid zx10r

Thought i ought to start a single post on my bike as i have pics all over the place.
It started off as a anniversary but i just cant leave anything alone and im always modifying it. It changes every week.
Spec;
Genuine gen5 bodykit. Standard stickers removed as i hated them. Way to tacky.
.
R1m calipers
.
Mupo rear shock. Uprated link plates.
.
Custom akrapovic exhaust.
K and n filter
.
.

.

What undertail is that? The rear cowl sure looks better than the Gen 4 one...

So is it just a swap job to put the gen5 plastics on? Specifically wondering about the tail, as the gen5 looks a ton better than the gen4.

The gen4 can be changed into a gen5 yes but you will need all relevant parts to do so.
The tail section needs every part from the black subframe upwards. Not the lock or latch though.
But you need to cut and join rear light

So just pick up a gen 5 subframe and presto. Good to know as there is one on eBay right now for $300 haha.

Not that simple.
Rear undertray.
All rear plastics.
Rear subframe alloy top piece. The sides are the same!
Riders seat is the same.
Lock will fit and work but gen5 has slightly shorter cable which would be better.
Rear light which plug isnt direct fit. Needs cutting and joining.
Plastic part that sits on top of the seat latch is needed as it holds top cowl and lean sensor.
Most other parts can be utalised from the gen4 like bolts etc..
Tank needs removing.
Ideal time to change the shock or links or change air filter!
Its not rocket science but its not easy and took me about 6 hours.
Buy used pannels as it should have all the rubber grommets in it all ready.
