Hi everyone !
I found an add for a 1996 Ninja 500, but it seems to miss the lower fairing. Does anyone know if the model came with that part every year ? If not, will it be hard to install one on (are the holes there on the frame?) It seems quite common for the lower fairing to be removed on this bike, is it just for the look or is it easy to break ?
Thanks for your help !

Some of the early models didn't come with em' . I fairly sure that a 96 did , so you should just be able to mount it right up .

It wasn't until about '99 that were made standard. Prior they were optional. There is a bracket set that is used attaching them so if you find a used one you'll have to be sure to get it with the brackets, hit a wrecking yard for them, or order a bracket kit. All of the parts are the same from '94 up and yes, with the kit it will bolt on to your bike.

Just for added info, mine was lowered when I got it and I kept hitting the lower fairing on every speedbump before I removed it.. Since then I figured how to raise the bike higher than stock but the lower never made it back on (half the roads are like a land mine testing field here)

Also, does it have an altered exhaust/aftermarket pipes sometimes the lower fairing interferes with the
new system so pepople have to ditch em...maybe?

Check ebay for fairings. people that have them are really proud of them so they may be expensive.
