Or is this some aftermarket kit? The closest I can find is the grey K3 and the black/silver K4, but none of them match completely.

The owner says it's a K4 but it has Suzuki on the tank instead of just the "S" so it should be a K3 right? Is this a legitimate kit or could it be China-fairings? What do you guys think?

You tell the year from the VIN, not the paint. That's easy to do. The engine serial number can also help if you know when the K3-K4 transition took place.

There are pics of the various color schemes here. Most of the small images can be expanded. The info on that site is quite good but not perfect. The pics commonly are Suzuki pre-release shots. Note that the K4 Mladin editon has Suzuki on the tank.

OEM plastics will have most of the part number plus a mold date punch grid molded into their backsides. Chinese parts rarely have either.

Your paint looks similar to the K4 black-grey, but not identical.
