Newer plastics on an older 230

Recommended Posts

Not that I need new plastics yet but in the event I do.. I like the look of the newer plastics. They give the 230 a more aggressive look, obviously looks are only looks but does anyone know about comparability?

The front fender looks pretty straightforward, I'm assuming the bolt pattern is the same and the newer fender should be a bolt on.

The tank plastics look like an issue, looks like they bolt on in two places, and the gas tank has a different part #. So to run the new tank plastics a new tank would be required?

Also, the newer model gas tanks hold less fuel. Older tanks a 2.1 and the newer ones a 1.9 I believe. Not much but there is a difference.

Yeah just seems too many cons to switching it up. However the front fender should be a direct bolt on.
