Anyone bought a non-OEM rear seat cowl from amazon/ebay?
« on: September 14, 2019, 08:00:24 AM »
Wondering if these $40 seat cowls I see on amazon and eBay are what they advertise? Is the fit good, and does the color match? Looking to get the gray one to match the red frame 2019 z900. Thanks!

Probably right about it not matching 100%, but for $40, give it a try and let us know 😎

Mine doesnt fit my ebony black pearl (something like that) but the difference is small. I bought it on eBay. I had to cut the sides they were touching the bike and scratching it a bit. It doesnt anymore.

I got one of these and it fitted perfectly, colour was a shade or two out but you don't even notice it.

Is that the color you got, too? Does it closely match the "Moondust gray" from the 2019 model?

There was only one silver when I ordered it, I just took the chance it was close to the right colour, and it was pretty close. Maybe you can find one that is in the colour you want.

I got one used for $20 off the Z FB page.
Probably AliXpress version but the spark metallic black color is fine for me.
Coat of spray polish on it, good to go.

I bought an AliExpress Cowl for ~$50. (Black)
The Cowl also say " Z" as opposed to "Kawasaki" on the Black rubber material  :169:

The Quality is pretty good and the fit was more snug than the OEM cowl. (The OEM cowl moved around a wee bit in the locked position)

I would definitely recommend the AliExpress product  :028:
