I just got an '03 sv1k that's only got 5k miles on it ... consequently them plastics are in great shape, but copper ain't my thing...

Is a decent a copper fairings actually worth anything to anyone? Sellers list them as rare.... but don't seem like they'd actually be worth saving particularly, but if they worth someones trouble ...

shucks. If they were slabs I’d take em off your hands in a hot minute.

stock copper fairings like you describe (in good shape) could net you 300-500 USD total; depending on buyer, shipping and condition.

Maybe put up an ad for them, give it a few weeks, and if they dont move, then paint them......

I love my copper, owned it from new and have all the genuine factory copper accessories.
Probably would never have been an SV owner if it wasn't for the colour.

Mine was copper until 3 1/2 years ago.....frnt cowl got messed up, and i couldn't see myself forking out the bucks for an oem unit, and second hand ones were just as second hand
as mine...... so i painted the whole bike...... (FG Falcon colour vic_bitter).....

I would never have bought the silver bike.....way too much of the same....frame, plastics, wheels.....

These would have to go on an '03 because of the rear subframe, right? I mean, the front fairing would be fine, but then you'd need the tank, too, to match, right? And then OP's left with a fairing-less bike? I'm just trying to wrap my head around this...

To my knowledge it's only the small black triangular pieces which are different between the K3 and K4/K5 fairings. They compensate for the different angle of the subframe.

All the coloured plastics fit all the years......650 and 1000...

The 650 wont take the chin spoiler though.

And as mentioned, the filler panels under the seat changed after 03....
