Looking at an 1989 model, probably going to buy it, plastics aren't great, are they interchangeable with earlier model, can get fairing and side panels tail piece off an 1fn model,any info appreciated thanks.

Decent 1fn panels seem hard to find I’d really like to keep mine looking standard but good side panels are scarce. I would like to keep the ability to take a pillion too so I might see if I can fit a seat unit from a trx850 or circa 2000 gsxr750.
Early top fairing has no holes for indicators. They use a slightly different frame with brackets that poke out towards the front for them. Side panels are slightly different towards the front. Not sure about mounts but can’t see them being very different. If you like your passengers at all then I wouldn’t advise a trx seat unit! Unless you’re prepared to do a lot of cutting, grinding, welding etc I would try to stick with your original set up. TRX wasn’t really designed with pillion comfort in mind. I’ve owned a trx and now have trx seat unit fitted to my FZ and my exup. It’s not an easy job to fit to either. Much fabrication required.
Hey fitted early cowl, front sides and chin spoiler on a 88. All you need to do is make some tabs weld a nut on the back and fit them to the frame a couple of tac welds hold them great. As far as cutting signal light holes just measure off the old cowl mark center of the light holder and use a hole saw. Make sure your cowl is mounted on the bike. Don’t forget to tape the cowl before you cut the hole to stop brake out.
Good luck Scott

vtr: Hi from cape town; new at forum's not at bike building; the insanity is contagious. Recently acquired a "1FU" FZ750 with dropped valves and decided cool to rebuild as a 911conversion sleeper, what we do to ourselves...

grahamfirestorm: Can anyone tell me why my bike doesn't seem to light up after 7000rpm like all the research I did before buying it.She has the standard 4 into 1 exhaust,carbs rebuilt with new jets,seals,floats,2 new diaphragms,all valve clearances checked and adjusted?

grahamfirestorm: She revs round to 10000rpm ok,but there is no urgency with it,my 1987 Kawasaki gpx750 was a lot quicker,and that was supposed to be 10-15 bhp down,ive been told the standard silencer and air filter are to blame but I don't believe that.

Graham : grahamfirestorm. Do you have standard size main jets fitted to your carbs? I would be tempted to go up a size or even two to see if it helps the bike pull stronger at high revs.
