Just asking because when I swap out the stock exhaust on my '17 for a full exhaust setup, there will be a huge gaping hole in the fairing lines where the stock cat used to be. It looks like the 2015 lower fairing will fit but am unsure.

Yes, with minor modifications.

A fairing from 2015 or 2016 will fit the 2017. You will need to remove the bracket on the left side which is mounted on the bottom of the engine, and get a new 2015/16 specific bracket which mounts further back, and you will need a couple extra grommets. I have done it.

You wouldn't by chance have the part numbers would you?

Have made the swap as well, can confirm it fits without any issues.

I also covered the interior of the fairing with an adhesive heat-shield in areas which get close to the header / exhaust, just to be sure nothing melts.

You need one of these bolts below, but I don't recall which one. My order included both for different things.
M6 bolt 51217061955
M5 bolt 07129905835
