3rd Gen track bodywork on 1st Gen?

I'll write this in point form. hahaha.

- I landed a sponsorship from Armour Bodies
- 1st Gen bodywork has been discontinued, can't get it.
- 2nd Gen bodywork will fit on my bike with a new air duct and fairing stay, that much i know.
- I like the look of the 3rd gen bodywork better, and if i get some now i can keep it after i upgrade to a 3rd gen 10R.

Has anyone tried fitting 3rd gen track bodywork on 1st gen?? I know the air duct is a very different shape so i figure i'd need that and a fairing stay at least. I'm only concerned with the upper and lower, i do have a nice tail at the moment.

You can make anything fit with the right amount of modification. You air duct probably would need to change as well as your rear subframe. Its a racebike so you really don't need to worry about lighting so it would make it much easier to mount.

No updates yet, i bought a 3rd gen air duct and fairing stay off a feller on Kawiforums. The 3rd gen bodywork is on its way to me from Armour Bodies.

I've been comparing the pics between the 1st and 3rd gen, i think the only really tricky part is going to be getting the air duct positioned properly.

nice man... on my 2nd gen conversion all I had to do was mountt he ram air duct and upper, I had to space the ride panel mounting positions out about an inch and down and back about an inch... also had to mod the body for the exhaust of course.

pretty much it, let us know how it goes!!! I wish I could fit a 08 subframe on a 04-05..... p.s. it wont work :-( unless you weld new mounts

I have my Optimal tail on the bike now, i think it looks really nice so i'm not too worried about swapping it out now.

Here's how the bike looks at this moment.

Not exactly. I think the duct will physically fit in the frame, but the angle is wrong.
