Would 2003 R6 stock plastic body(with headlights and backlights) fit on 1999 R6. Has anybody done it...if so....is there any modification required or just mount it. Also the stock 5 spoke wheels from 2003 R6 will fit on 99' R6. Any help please. Thankyou. :D

Anything can be done, but this swap would probably cost too much. The sub frames from the 2 r6's you mentioned are different. So you would need to fab new mounting hardware. Then the old lights were incandecent (sp?) and the new ones are LEDs. That just sounds like a wiring nightmare. :evil:

Let us know if you take on the project!

In short. No.

I'd be too costly & too much of a head ache.

Just bite the bullet & go out & get yourself a 2003. :wink:

Not only willit be expensive, but there is a good chance that the body curves and the frame curves will not line up. Also, if you are trying to pass a 99 for an 03, remember to have your frame painted first.

MY SUGGESTION: A 99 is a great looking bike, leave it how it is.
