This might be a dumb question, but I was looking at this 1996 Ninja 500 for sale and noticed it had a full lower fairing covering the engine. Was this stock in the mid-90's? I don't remember seeing it before (I always thought the gen2 ninjas were all the same except the colors).

Aftermarket. Notice the maroon does not match. Targa and others made them. You can still get them in the white (gel coat).

The lower chin fairing seen on all '94-'09 Ninja 500s is OEM. It was optional on the '87-'93 models. There were also "fill-in" fairing panels made, I think by Targa, that ran from the chin fairing to the upper, thus creating a full fairing. You find them used from time to time. Maybe still made, but IDK.

Man that fairing looks nice. I want to get a lower fairing myself, but don't like the stock on that doesn't come all the way up. This is my biike. View attachment 54379
I currently have an '07 Pearl Solar Yellow tank on my '87. At least until I can get a dent pulled from the top of the '87 tank.
