Hey guys, I'm sure this has been asked prob 100 times on here, can't seem to find an old thread, Is it possible to put an S2 front fairing on an S1, are the holding brackets completely different, is there a work around? Just asking cause I have the Diamond black S1, 10,000 miles, suspension set for my weight, pipes extras etc.. so don't want to sell her to get an S2, I just wouldn't mind adding colour to her,
First pic my bikes livery

Second pic, I'd buy the rear plastic slips with the black silver and Orange and
front end to fit on my S1 if possible


Any help greatly appreciates folks

If you're just wanting a color change, and none of your bodywork is damaged, have you considered having your tank and plastics painted? Probably not much more cost wise than a good set of plastics and different color tank.

I would venture to say that it would cost about $1,000-$1,500 plus to have the painted parts painted. That’s without any repairs. Even if you did it yourself you are still looking at $400-$500 in material.

For a simple color change I might try to have parts wrapped.

My understanding from prior questions on this forum lead me to think that the S1 and S2 fairings are not interchangeable.

The inner stay (main metal mount) as well as the inner panels are different, (see below pic's).
Of course the outer cowl is different..

You could put all S2 parts on the frame of an S1 but your cluster wouldn't match/fit up with the S2

Thanks for all the replies guys, I did think the front fairing wouldn't work, I think I will get some of the body work wrapped, cheaper than painting, I know an expert who does that type of thing, thanks again lads!

I'd like to put a S2 style windscreen setup on my S1, to see if that would cure the buffeting. It's driven me crazy since I bought this FZ6 new in 2004 and I've tried three windscreens already. (Stock, Tall Yamaha, and Puig which I have now.)

The horrible wind noise and buffeting is the only real downfall on this bike, since I modified the brakes and suspension. But it's a big downfall, as it is really annoying.

Remove the windscreen. If that works for you, then just cut it down. Me, I removed the entire fairing and it greatly improved my enjoyment of the bike.
