Another vote for Vagabond, though there is a cheaper knock off version around thatís apparently quite good quality too.

As for integrated rear light, thereís a bundle that comes with the light and the number plate bracket here:

Kawasaki have blown most of their R&D budget on Electric/Hybrid for this year.
 I would like to have seen something like a supercharged 700 twin engined bike replace the Z900 but I cant see that now. In theory the H2 technology should have filtered down but judging by the discounts available on H2SX and ZH2 they can't be selling as well as hoped.
IMHO the supercharged bikes were always going to be a niche within a niche. They're mostly for cashed up old riders - but the bulk of these are on adventure bikes, cruisers, or retros instead. They're also very intimidating for less experienced younger riders, in more ways than one: insurance premiums, purchase price, and power output.

Hi,

I bought the vagabond tail tidy for my Z, it was a little pricey imo but the quality is great and fitment is perfect  :015:

Cant comment on fitting a UK plate, but here is the link so you can check it out: https://www.vagabondmotorsports.com/en-fi/products/kawasaki-z900-2017-fender-eliminator

New cable finally arrived. Ordered 13 Feb.
Apparently is was backordered or something everywhere.
$42 from Revzilla.
Now to figure how to replace. This weekend is supposed to be rainy. Good time to do this and other things...

Hello all, can anyone recommend a tail tidy for a UK '20 plate z900?

I've been looking around and prices vary massively from roughly 40quid to 110 and I'm not sure what the difference is to warrant the variation.

Also, has anyone that's done it reused the existing indicators or have they been supplied with the tidy?

And lastly, has anyone seen any indicators incorporated into the brake light?

I got 2 pair from Ali Express. Installation was a breeze. No bubbles or dust under it. Will report back on how they perform in a couple of months :)

Received my stickers last week. Today I installed them. I wasn't happy about the way the stickers where shipped. They were in a square box, so the stickers were rolled up.
I would suggest to put the stickers in a A3 envelope with a carton A4 backboard in it. There were creases in the stickers.  :110:

I am very happy with the outcome of the mudguard sticker. It was a little challenge to get the middle piece on, but with some patience I managed to get it on without any bubbles and wrinkles. The hairdryer is really necessary to use.
I am not so happy with the stickers on my front fork. The top of the fork goes from bigger width to smaller width. The stickers doesn't fit well and whatever you do, you will get wrinkles. Check the pics to see the results. I am hesitating to get them off because it doesn't look pro.
The sticker on the backplate under the seat is not great either. There is a gap between to plastic pieces that you need to bridge with another sticker. However you will see different heights and indentations. I don't like it at all. Maybe I will get that one off too.

In conclusion I wouldn't buy the front fork sticker and the backplate one. The mudguard one is really awesome though, so if you are hesitant... get it!

Hey All,

Recently picked up a 2020 Z900 and there's a few things I've been wanting to get remedied.

First being the plastic cover on the TFT display, is this removable/replaceable?

I ask because before I bought it, the bike sat out outside for at least a month and there's a big, dead ant behind the plastic cover on the display. I'd like to remove and replace the display's plastic cover to clean up the display area.

Is this possible? Or would I run the risk of damaging the display itself?

Thanks
