Many years ago, I had a lovely FZS600 that I used to commute between Wolverhampton and Nottingham a couple of time a week. The one thing I hated were the poor lights, especially o the A38 in the winter.

I did a bit of research and found that a Gen 1 Fazer 1000 subframe would fit the 600, a little more research, I found the Gen 1 Fazer headlights and fairing and infill panels would fit straight on. The only thing I had to tinker with was the wiring loom for the lights, but it only took an hour of trial and error before I had fully working headlights from a 1000 on my 600.

If anyone is interested in doing this, I have all the components from a Gen 1 Fazer 1000 to do the conversion except for the LH infill panel and mirrors.

Front Subframe
Fairing
Headlights

RH Infill Panel
No mirrors or LH Infill Panel

COOL...! that looks great...but are the 1000 lights significantly better than the FZS600.....?
I had to fit cheap Chinese spotlights to mine....but still not great.

The FZ1 Gen 1 headlights are on another level compared to the FZ600, you wouldn't believe it was the same bike :)


I have two fairings, both are silver tech S3, one is OEM but has damage that is repairable, the other is a patten fibre glass fairing that is brand new.


The OEM fairing came off this bike:
