FZ1N > S conversion..
« on: 28 December 2016, 10:18:17 am »
Hi guys.
So going to start looking for the bits needed to do this over the next few weeks/months but cant find any threads throughout the web on converting from N to S.
Has anyone done this, any pointers or suggestions on making it easier?
So fairing/frame headlights various platic bits etc... Electrics i'm not sure if anything is needed?
I will just start ordering what i am sure i need but thought i would ask you guys for any input  :)


Before anyone asks why, i get bored... I dont want another bike so fancy converting mine :P

I'm glad your willing to tackle this.
It's something I've been thinking about for the winter months. Hopefully it doesn't entail anything permanent then can be naked in summer and faired in winter 🤔

Would the sub frame for the fairing fit an `N`? The fastening points might not be on the main frame? You would be going from one headlight to two, loom will be different and you might have to butcher it a bit as it would not have same connector.
The rad shrouds from an `N` are different from the `S` , the fairing will foul on them.
Also seat cowling is different for some reason.
 
Just buy an `S` instead :D

Sorry, this is the reverse of what you want but it should give you some clues.

 :lol
Fairly sure it will fit, read many threads of the reverse conversion like posted by Rob, yes rad end covers will have to be changed and headlight loom will need another bulb plug.
The biggest problem for me is the parts, all are available but some fairly expensive others not so common.... So i will spend some time looking for the parts that dont seem to come up for sale so often before committing to the more expensive parts (headlights, fairing)...


Noooo not buying an S, mine is special and i'm keeping it  :lol

Where are you?

I have a fairing bracket and top fairing (in grey) you are welcome to borrow, to play around with. tbf fairings/screens aren't too dear anyway in pattern form.

Thanks mate, very kind. I am in Harlow, bit of a trek from you but thanks for the offer. I have seen a China copy on ebay for the fairings... Still £100 for the bare shell, thats ok but like i said its the small bits that could take a while to show up for sale.
If you decide to sell your spares let me know  :)

You need to get yourself to a good bike breakers, there used to be some good ones in Essex.


There was one in collier row, one in chelmsford and one in Southend that I have used (many many years ago I might add)


Or try the part finder websites:
