2017-2019 vs 2020-2021 parts fitment
on: September 24, 2021, 07:35:59 PM
I just had a quick question about the difference between the years and how the parts fit. While searching the various parts I want to buy I often see products for 2017-2019 but nothing for 2020 or 2021. I have a 2021 and I was just wondering if a good rule of thumb is these parts will work for my bike or not. For reference I've been looking a lot at seats, crash bars, and fender eliminators, and integrated tail light/break light. This is only my second bike so I have some experience with parts and mods but it was significantly more clear cut with my ninja 400.

Thanks all

All the parts you listed are identical (US 2017-2021). The biggest difference (globally) is the headlight assembly/windscreen, side body panels and TFT dash. When it comes time for the header/slip-on, we still use the euro-4 header so thats also same since 2017.

Thanks for the info! That will make buying parts a lot easier  :001:

Kawasaki's frame sliders are different between Gen 1 + 2 but why would you buy them at the astronomical price they sell for anyways??  :027:

Agreed. I wonder if the parts are different because the frame was strengthened/ stiffened between G1 & G2 and the mounting points changed slightly?

It's because of where a small locking tab on the slider goes compared to the plastic frame cover.
