that is the 03-04 1000. It has a different body (everything) than the 600/750.

probably not. that first pic is a 2001 600/750 or 01-02 1000
2nd pic is 03-04 1000 which isa different body style than the 01-03 600/750

yeah because from the sides they look about the same! it almost looks like the fairing around the head light can just bold up to the older fairing! it would take some small modding I'm sure it can be done.. not worth my time though..

2003 - 750


2003 1000
