    I have an 04 frame and 07 engine and everything else and didn’t have any plastics just bought some 04 farings. I wanted to see if anyone know if the 04 farings will work with the 07 coolant resevoir?

    According to Honda 04-05 fairings do not fit on the 06-07 models. According to various forum topics across the interwebs, there are several people that made them fit with modifications.

    You need to change the coolant bottle or relocate it. Lower needs to be trimmed due to 04-05 header spacing. Plus you may need the middle fairing brackets.. they look different from 05-06. I think there is a write up somewhere online, i’ll see if I can find it.

    Or don’t cut the fairings, but get a different radiator.. the 05 is bigger than 06.

    I’m still using 04 farings so i should just need new coolant resevoir right? Maybe brakets depending on what I’ve got.

    Your radiator is bigger than 06+.. will need to cut the fairings a bit for it to fit.. you will also need to get a new coolant res bottle, mid fairing mount. Might be something else but I think the ECU, etc all fits.

    That’s crazy. Post up some pics when you’re done, curious if it all comes together well.

    That’s crazy. Hopefully you didn’t pay for an 06 and got a 04. Either way, post up if you need any help with it.
