Cbr 600 04 Bigger forks will fairings fit? Please help

Me and my brother just bought a pair of 600RR both 2004. However my brother rr was modified to a street fighter look. We are currently trying to return it to its original form and we found that the forks are 50mm instead of 45mm like mine. The Question is: will this affect the fitment of the fairings when we try to install them? will the forks interfere with the head cowl or oem headlight? Will it effect the side fairings? Please help we are both beginners and have no clue, we want to know any tips and advise before ordering the fairings.

thanks for the response, as you can see the only difference is the front which has bigger forks and a headlight from ebay which at this moment is what holds the speedometer, im guessing when we order the fairings the head cowl will be what holds it in place instead, right?

Looks to me like the PO swapped a few things to the 05/06 model stuff such as the USD forks and the tail plastics and maybe the subframe. I've never looked into the swap so I don't know what it takes to switch out the tail plastics.

There's been a few people here that swapped the fairings from the 03/04 to the 05/06 so dig around and see what they did and what problems they had.

How could i be sure that he did swap to 05/06 because they look almost exactly the same to me.

For one, make sure that the two bikes you got are indeed 04. Take a look at the title and also run a VIN check. Both should give you the model year.

05+ have USD forks so that's easy to spot.

03/04 tail section:


05/06 tail section:


The seat shape, black trim, and the tail plastics are different.

It's interesting in that from the image you provided the seat looks to be from 03/04 but the plastics are 05/06. As I'm not familiar with the frame and fairing mounting differences between the two iterations I hope someone else chimes in. But I do know that fairings, at least cosmetically are different between the two. Take a look at the nose section around the intake for an example.

That's why I suggest you be certain which model year you have and determine if the bits have been swapped before you go looking at fairings.

I certaintly see what you are talking about, ive started to lookly close at the bike and i have noticed the forks are the same as the 05 model, the bike is indeed an 04 but apparently it has been modified using 05 parts, tail and trim are the same as the 05, the seat is 03 but Im asuming the seat doesnt matter the year since its the same bolt pattern and position. Ive also heard the 04 and 05 side and bottom fairings are the same so the year of the side fairings shouldnt matter as it should fit regardless. The only thing that you did point out that is different is the front which ive researched is different fitment for each year. So im guessing i should go for 05 fairings as the bike has 05 forks. Also thank you for the visuals and answer you have been extremely helpful.

And your brothers forks are actually smaller at 41mm vs your 45's. You have to measure in the same spot.

06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 82k miles and counting.....
08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines.
