Nothing I have seen. Its all cut and weld for k1 rear. There might be some US companies that do different rear. They do a k1 nose conversion that fits with srad panels.

Yes, and I'm sure someone somewhere is selling a pre fab tail swap they don't use anymore.

Daz will most likely sell you a race one piece tail, with the subframe, that will bolt straight on....will have to do something with the lights though.
Don't do it man...

Re: srad 600 tail swap?

im doing a k1 tail conversion at the min and its really simple. the only down fall is the fact the subframe is ally so if youve not got an ally welder u need to find someone to do it for you. its pritty straight forward once youve sourced all the parts.

all depends wether you want to carry passangers or not. if you dont then go for a race fairing thats if you havent definatly decided to keep the srad back end
