My 2003 sp2 was knocked over in the garage by my idiot roomate. The tank and upper cowl got messed up. I have found a smoking deal on a Sp1 tank and upper cowl fairing. Are there any differences?? Graphics and stickers the same? mounting points the same?

Th tanks are physically the same. They will mount up just fine, but the graphics on the 2003 model won't line up with the graphics on the 2000-2002 tanks. The wings will be off. If the deal on the tank is good enough, you could replace the decals on the tank and have it re-cleared and still come out ahead.

If it was me in this situation, I'd go for it. I'd rather have clean parts that maybe don't quite match versus matching parts that are f'd up. You can always redo aesthetics later.

Or just run the tank until you find an '03 and sell the one that doesn't look right. You might actually make money as tanks are getting pricey!

For some reason I thought that you could buy them seperately, but looking at the online parts sites, I can't find it. Sorry if I misled you, I would think that you should be able to buy those, but I guess not. You should be able to tell from the pictures below how far off the wings will be. There was a picture somewhere that somebody had done exactly this, but I can't seem to find it.

The upper cowl is the same, but there is a number plate on the 2000-2002 models. Everything else should line up, but the stickers might be a little off on either side. They look close to me.
