    It hasn't arrived yet but it looked good in the pictures as they all do right! I bought just recently the 1990 vfr 750F kit and only after I tore it down and cleaned it as thouroghly as I felt like while drinking a 12 pack I notices not one piece of the plastics was in good condition. I turned to the boards and ebay only to find Airtech making something worth buying with the exception of the infamous painted paper thin plastics on ebay. I bit the bullet and got the guy to send me the following kit shipped for $400. Only time will tell if this was in deed a smart buy but honestly parts were falling off this thing as I took a ride with my girl Saturday(BTW, it went from 52degrees SAT to 39 degrees and 9 inches of snow today!).

    Also, anyone know where I can buy some seats needed for this thing? My guess is I will be making another seat pan and covering it!

    The RWB kit is on a 4th gen.
    Your bike is 3rd Gen.
    The tail is not interchangeable. Don't know about the front half.
