All the fairings are identical in shape and attachment, paint schemes are different throughout the years though. If you are getting the 04 front AND sides, those will at least line up. Tank will be a bit off but not terrible. Your tell will also have black number plates where as your front would be white?

The V-cowl between the lower cowls is different as well due to SP2's relocated oil radiator and horn.

Definitely not!
You only need it if you relocate your oil radiator. Otherwise you keep your OEM as it is

I know exactly what your looking at on eBay. Those fairings are made of super cheap plastic they almost never have holes drilled in the right place. They melt and shatter if wrecked. OEM is the best way to go
