hi i just got an 06 raven today. this is my first 600, used to ride a kawasaki 250r. i was wondering if i can switch out the tail section to a maybe more newer model tail section. has anyone done this before? is it easy to do and do all the parts fit?

thanks for the help!

welp, i suppose ill take this one..what exactly are you looking to change to because any newer tail section is going to look basically exactly the same as yours

so you have an R6S, not an R6?

Your tail section is the same from 03-09, I don't think they made an S model for 2010.

so i guess now the question is, how do i come across a v body tail section?
i searched on google and not really getting results..

i think the v body looks a lot better than the s body

That's because it does ;)

But in order to switch between the 2 you will need a "V" sub-frame, and will have to fabricate it to fit the S frame. A member has done it in the past but I'm not searching for the thread.

Lot of work but it's just up to you if its worth it or not ! fitment is always a challenge when it comes to this . Trying to make it fit and look OEM is the hardest part .

I have never rode an actual S model but I did own an 03 r6 for a s short period of time while I also had my V model and I gotta say, I love the bottom end that the 03 had. Sure its not as pretty, but its a lot of fun any RPM, not just about 8000

Everyone is so touchy about using S to describe 2nd gens...

2nd gen R6's are S's, 3rd gens are V's. It doesn't mean it's slower, even though it is, it just means it's an S body.

R6S = Street version. Means it's more comfortable and built for the street.

Just like Honda had their F4i's then went to RR (Race Ready) in 06/07.

Not all 2nd gens are S's. That is why the 05's are much different than 03-04 and the S models.
