There is some threads on here for converting F2/F3 to F4i not sure about going from F2/F3 -> 600rr or 1000rr. You can look around the forum for those conversions. Im sure the frames have changed now from the older F2/F3 years. But anything is possible :P If you can make your own headlight bracket or buy one and convert it a bit you would need more than just the plastics like the headlights and taillights,gas tank,etc.

With enough time, knowledge and money yes it can be done. You will have to do a lot of moding to get it to work and almost always does it not turn out good because the lines just don't match up and there are normally a lot of gaps in the fairings and what not.

Welcome to the forum. Come on over to the New Member area & tell us about yourself.

As said above, yes, it can be done but the end result depends on your modding skills, ability to adapt body parts from dif model bikes, etc. The F4i fairings have been popular on older bikes; F4, F3, F2. Some have put 600RR tails on the previously mentioned as well.

The F4 & F4i share some things in common. I did the split-seat '01-03 F4i split seat conversion on my F4. However, it was a straight forward swap that didn't require fabbing mounting tabs, etc. There was some adaptation of components but was not a difficult job.

Anyway, I say make it your own, whatever makes you happy. :-)

well now that you mentioned the year of your bike - 2004, you don't have the F2/F3 << these are older than your bike. As for putting on 1000rr parts to a 600rr you should be able to convert the tail piece for the look of the 1000rr. I have a 2007 1000rr and can take pics or measurements of my tail piece or other fairing mounts etc which might help with converting it. Other than that without having an extra tail to try its fitment you might have to buy a cheap one and give it a shot. Or find a friend with one and see if he would let you trial mount his tail piece - which not many ppl don't want to tear there bike down.

after doing some research on google :P, the sub frames for the tails are very close if not the same for 1000rr and 600rr. the plastics should fit np.

here is a sub frame for 1000rr but says also fits 600rr.
Oregon Cycle Parts : 04 05 06 07 Honda CBR 1000RR 1000 600 Sub Frame Tail

Here is your tail piece -- not sure if this is your actual sub frame.
Oregon Cycle Parts : 04 05 06 07 Honda CBR 600RR 600 Rear Subframe Sub Frame

not sure about converting all the plastics, but as far as I know the only noticeable difference between the 600rr and 1000rr is the tail.

The side fairings are different also.
