Difference between 2020 and 2019 tail tidy?
on: September 03, 2020, 11:26:18 AM
Ok I haven't seen this on here in a search so whats the difference in the tail tidy between model years? I am currently going to look at an ex demo 2020 model.Just trying to pre-empt any parts changing issues.I was hoping to change most of the accessories straight over but it would appear that my r+g one might not fit as  r+g make a different one for 2020 models although the Kawasaki fender  parts are the same for both models?.So can my 2019 one be modified to fit or be more expense for a new one?.I like the r+g quality but a cheap chinese knock off will do if I have to buy another.

Sounds like one of many more joys of getting a '20, take a 'lil peek at it.
My $25 AliExpress knock off one works, it just has to hold the plate + directional on.

I can't imagine that there's a difference at all for anything to do with the tail section.

Which why I asked the question not sure if the 2020 version from r+g has different fixings or spacers than 2017-19 version.It is odd as Evotech list theirs for 2017 on I'll wait until I have done the deal and got the bike and have a look then.Most of the other stuff is the same.

No difference at all. I have this one on my 20 and it looks great, signals fit great as well as the license plate light, zero mods, no cutting wires ect ...VM-KZ910 Fender Eliminator Kit fit for Kawasaki Z900 (2017+) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WPB6HQW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ouFuFb2CVYH42

I would just let that one go with the bike.  I have a 2020 and the one from amazon worked for me fine and it's cheap (30.99).

Too expensive to let go at 116 a pop.
Have found out difference today after collecting bike and starting to swap parts over the 2020 UK model does not have the same connector plugs as 2017-2019 model  the mounting bolts etc are  the same.The indicators are different as well although not a problem as these will be refitted.Will contact r+g tomorrow to see if connector lead is available separately otherwise I will have to cut  and join wires.Which I would prefer not to do so it can be returned to stock if needs be in the future.
