Did this site say they could put the 600RR rear cowl on the f4i? If they did it wouldn't be oem. I know jc whitney has oem stuff for almost every bike. I don't think that the 600RR rear cowl will fit on the f4i couse of the exhoust but the older f4i's might.

she just wants to know if she can change her seat....some F4i's have a banana seat (both the front and back seat are connected) and some F4i's have a step seat that makes the F4i look more like an RR.....she wants to put a step seat on her bike

i think other than that, you need to swap the whole tail section, maybe even the subframe.

check the microfiche http://www.ronayers.com/main.cfm

if both pre-banana and banana (i forgot which yr they change :scratch: ) have the same subframe, then you just need the plastic and the seats. if the subframe is diff, then a new subframe would be the added cost.

:banghead: the last year for the step seat on the f4i was in 02 then when the 600RR came out they designed the f4i into a sport touring bike.

ok what midnight is tryin to say is his woman got an 04 f4i with the 99 and 00 style seat. she wants the 01-03 style step or broken seat that just happens to look like the ones on our RR. my suggestion would be (well i really would suggest that she bought a bike she liked in the first place) that you look at ron ayres (not sure on the spelling or web address but you can do a search for ron and there will be plenty of threads with the web add.) and see if the sub frames match from 01-03 to the 04-05. if they do (which i highly doubt) just order the rear tail section and seats from an 01-03. be ready to pay about 5 bills for it though. :roll:

i think its a good idea but you might want to repaint it so i suggest finding one off of ebay or some grave yard by where you live for half the price of oem.
