    I know this thread is a bit old, but it's got me curious. The bikes in the seconds pick are definitely FZ6R's, the swingarm, frame and tank are the same as our bikes. But I can't for the life of me figure out where those fairings are from, they don't seem to match any R6 year model.
    If it's a relatively straight forward bolt on process I'd be very interested in this to create enough clearance for true clip-ons. Does anybody know where the original pics came from or what fairings they are using?

    It's very possible those are race fairings from airtech or something. I agree that all the bikes are the FZ6R due to the swingarm, frame tubing, front forks, and handlebars instead of clipons. That's a sweet looking mod, would love more info on it if anyone has done it.

    I'm hoping to revive this, can anyone advise what parts are needed exactly and if any frame work/modifications are necessary? The stock fz6r tail looks bulky to me from some angles.

    I'll bump this too. I'm needing to redo the rear of the bike (taillight, signals, etc...). If this is a straight forward swap, I'm interested in doing it. More info anyone?

    That's sick. Is it as easy as just buying an r6 tail and swapping or do you have to do any customer mods?

    I took the first step in the process today and bought a 2008 r6 upper tail piece for $15. I've got the bike torn apart now for an initial test fit to see what all this might entail and as expected, nowhere close to direct swap lol. Money is tight, r6 fairings are expensive on ebay, so this will probably be slow. I'm not promising anything, but if I can figure it out, I'll definitely make a detailed thread about everything I did.
