what fairings fit on a 1999 yamaha R6

hello,

i found this R6 and its missing all the fairings, seats, tank, gauges, headlights etc, so in the spirit of cheapness since i dont have much cash right now but i really want a bike, if i were to make purchasement of this bike obviously it has to be fixed up to be usable on the road legally.

since i need to do this cheaply and im not finding cheap 99 r6 fairings on ebay (there is a ton of stuff to go thru, ive already spent hours looking thru them) my question is what fairings could fit with minimal modification?

newer R6 fairings would be the nicest since it is a yamaha and i love the sharp look but im not opposed (which most of you guys probably are) to say getting gsxr cbr or zx fairings to put on it and just painting over them.

the bike:

thanks

Try ordering fairings through Auctmarts (member on here - Auctmarts1) for cheap fairings. You should be able to get a full set of PF (perfect fit) for about $550 but be prepared to wait a month or so.

Re: what fairings fit on a 1999 yamaha R6

if i put on a 2001-02 fairing set it has different taillights. the one on the bike is a big single unit and these are the two smaller circles. i can find the lights on ebay no problem. so do the 2001 bikes have the same connections as the 99? if so everything simply plugs right up

thanks for the replys

I'm pretty sure that 03-05 race plastics also fit on a 1st gen

Re: what fairings fit on a 1999 yamaha R6

have any owners of 98-02 r6s's attempted to update their machine with newer plastics?

if i buy the stuff new it is the same price for the old ones as for the new ones and i like the look of the newer ones better. how much work does it take to make them fit? if they can.

also how about the electric system. can i just plug in newer taillights and headlights? i would really like the integrated system just to clean up the look.

Re: what fairings fit on a 1999 yamaha R6

unless i was the one who disassmbled that, i wouldnt want to reassemble (and ride) it.

you can find a nice, complete first-gen for slightly more than youd pay for that- and parts- and your time invested.

Race fairings.. yes they go right on pretty easy...
Street require a bit o mods. Upper fairing bracket needs to be swapped, and sub frame needs to swap for rear seat and tail light... also the Rqadiator on 03-05 is a little bigger but will fit fine. The front.rear fender however must be 99-02 to fit...

Re: what fairings fit on a 1999 yamaha R6

if u get lucky u can find a working, not much stuff to replace 99-02 (1st gen) r6 for maybe $2K - $2,500.. if ur gona buy parts but have someone fix the engine ur gona be spending around $1K for sure...i bought a used 2000 r6 without knowing anything about the engine. and later i found out that the engine was sh*ty..it cost me alot of money just to get it running right.IF ur gonna be doing everything by urself then its gona be a different story. Maybe u'll save some money or maybe u'll end up ending spending around $2K...good luck dude...
