I bought a brand new complete set of sharkskinz fairings for my 03 1000 about 3 months ago, I decided to do something different with my 1000, fairings wise so I was wondering would I be able to use the sharkskinz that were originally for my 03 1000 to mount on a 03 600...will it work w/ or w/o modify!!!!!!!!!! Thanks........

Fairings......

Is there any possible way I can make this work...maybe fiberglass the original mounting holes and make new ones perhaps..I'm having the fairings professionally painted so I can have the holes fiberglassed with no problem.....Thanks

You should be able to do it, it just might take a lot of work to get them to fit right, I know the tanks on the 1000 are longer than the 600 so it might be a big job.

No what my point about the tank was, the shape of the plastic is going to be a little different to fit around the different shape. not that the take wouldn't work. :thumbup:

No you said you had a 03 1000, those tanks are different than the 01-02. I think you could make the plastics look good on the 600, just not sure how much work your going to have on your hands.

Just use the original tank. Have you tried holding the plastics up to see how much work its going to be?
