I'm a newcomer to the TL world and just happens I got two of them in the same week! A 1997 TL1000S that needs all new fairings and a 1999 TL1000R that is in immaculate shape. My question is I don't really like the look of the S model and was wondering if the 98-03 fairings would fit on there without fabrication. Or are there other model bike fairings that fit my S model? Thanks so much and God bless!!!

I am currently in Knoxville, Tennessee (United States), but trying to get both bikes ready before I move to Texas. The 1000S I bought came with the stock side and front fairing and also the stock rear. It also came with a lower fairing that looks nothing like my 99 TL's lower fairing so it came off a different model bike I think. 3md3o73pf5O65W65R0acrf60d0527ebec13c3.jpg 3md3o73pf5O65W65R0acrf60d0527ebec13c3.jpg

No not right now. Those are off the ad I bought it from. Took fairings off already in hopes of finding new ones.

Welcome to the site!

As Mark said it's not a straight swap. A member here did it and had to fab up some brackets to make the fairings fit.

Here is a pic of what his looked like



And a Photoshopped?? pic of a S with R front fairings and stock S tail( Just ignore the lady to the right)

Its very photo shopped that pic is John, the fairings aren't the right shape :laugh
Look at how sloped the screen is and how short the lower is when fitted to the S... It can only go UP so far as it'll burn on the pipes.

Question. Is there any other model, such as any GSXR, that parts will fit on the R and S models? I need a whole brake assembly and there SO damn hard to find. Found one before xmas, bought it, and it got lost in the mail. Ever since then I've had the worst luck finding parts!

What brake parts you after?

Front discs, calipers and master (different shape res) are the same as Busa 99-07,
rear caliper and master is same as alot of 90's-00's GSXR

Pm SnailsPace (member) he probably has one cheap enough for you... unless someone pipes up with a freebie in the US.

I have one, but shipping would kill it for you :banghead
