Ian, you'll need the ram air ducts from the frame out from the 00. You may even need the hard plastic tube going thru the frame. You wouldn't be from Cape Breton would ya? I work with several people from Nova Scotia and they sure talk about how beautiful it is.....is there lot's of good roads to ride?

the zx9 i just bought had a really (and i mean REALLY) cheap fiberglass set of bodywork.
i sold it all for a couple hundred dollars (that was before i saw what the headlights go for on ebay - oops)
anyhow, there are way more options for to 00-01 bodywork, and it just plain looks cooler.
so i'm going that direction.
as for the roads in nova scotia, there are deffinetly some good ones, the cabot trail in cape breton is unreal. i've never done it on a bike, couple of sports cars though - looking forward to riding it on the 9 next summer, my father has a zx12... should make for a fun weekend.
there are also some roads in the southern part of the province which are to die for. sadly most of the centeral bits around where i live are too straight... like people were in a hurry to get where they were going when the made them =-)

aboogie - did you run into any issues with the swap? did you need the tubes as well as the ducts?
thanks guys

No I didnt run into any issues....... Well, sorta kinda with the wiring of the speedo but I got a diagram on it and it worked out fine........

Parts

--00-03 front end cowl

--02-03 headlight bracket/fairing stay (much better then the 00-01, which you have to use the same fairing stay bracket as we have on out 9s now..the 02-03 has one build it that goes fwd in the cowl and up)



--00-03 headlight

--00-03 ram air ducts, and duct covers, ram air scoop

--00-03 gauges (which will work perfect with the 98-99, i have the wiring diagram..all you do is pull the wiring from the harness and move them around)

why did you have to change the gauges? i don't wanna do that at all... my speedo reads 300km... any of the newer ones all have 280 for the highest #.
and could you explain better the 00-01 vs 02-03 bracket... i can see the difference from 98-98 vs 00+. but why'd you used the 02-03?

Well I didnt have to change the gauges.... I liked the newer version better so I swapped out......

I personally like the look of 02-03 bracket better because it doesnt give me that cross bar look above the triple tree......

Here is the 02 -03 look.....





Here is the 00 - 01 look........

So this post is a little old but will the 02-03 bracket swap out with the 00-01?

I like the look better than the stock 01 cross bar. Does the 02-03 also hold the gauges or no?

awesome. been trying to find a 00-01 gaugre bracket with no luck. looks like ill go with the 02-03 style.

I guess my next question is, is there another brace/bracket i need up front besides the 02-03 one? the 00-01 had two if im not mistaken- one for the mirrors and such one for the gauges that also hooked to the headlights i think.

Question on a 01 ZX9

Here is the 02 -03 look.....

I want to remove that crossbar look on my 01, where can i get the new bracket and i think thats all i would need to just replace the cross bar to this new one, anything would i need?
