I need
2005 Kawasaki EX500 upper fairing and headlamp assembly.
I'm pretty sure the year isn't too important but that's the bike it's going on.
Obviously not picky about the color but black would be awesome.

Ex500 was redesigned in 1994 and designated a ninja 500 which had a very different frairing than the the ex500 fairing.

Finding one is like finding hens teeth. I was looking for one about 18 months ago and finally just gave up.

The best performance upgrade is upgrading the operating system of the operator. It is cheap, easy, fast, safe and works on every bike you will ever ride.

So I'm not alone.
Mine is cracked (badly) purely from vibration and hard riding. Not so much as a scuff on it but it's broken itself in to several large pieces contained in position only by the mounting brackets. It's a mess.
You're right. Lots of tail sections out there but all the front fairings have most likely been done in by newb riders/front end impacts.

Yes, 500 Ninja fairings, headlights, fairing brackets, front turn signals, and to some extent gas tanks, are near impossible to find in good condition for any price. Everything else on these bikes can be found in plentiful quantities for nearly free.

BTW, these fairings are ABS and very easy to repair if damage is only cracks. Go to Tap Plastic and get some scraps of thin ABS sheet. Then get ABS cement from Home Depot (plumbing dept). Then glue the scraps of ABS to the back of the fairing across the cracks.

Just saw this one on eBay. Condition isn't too bad...

You're absolutely right. It's just a commuter but I still don't want it to slip in to *beater* status. I'm afraid I'm going to have just fix what I have, was wishing/hoping for the easy way out.
They really aren't bad looking bikes for what they are. Black with a dark tint speed screen. It almost earns the Ninja title someone comically bestowed on it.
