Spoke to Shad UK earlier and they're saying the bikes subframe is different between the 2014-16 at latest bikes  :187: can anyone confirm  :027: as an either/or situation with box, or panniers does not work for me!

Hmm...looking on Kawasaki parts finder it seems they do have different part numbers...

Hmmm, for a top box for my wife to lean against...yes :461: but for me which = 99.8% of my riding = no big deal  :164:  :008:

I think no, it`s same. Under hand bracket there are two screw holes so I guess that You can use old ones and attached theirs bracket. One thing which you have to consider more are old hand brackets.

It's not just the hand rails, if you want to fit panniers at the same time...there's also a plate that sits under the mudguard/tail end fitting and those parts definitely have different part numbers  :006:

Agree with MDR!

My dealer told me i had to change the subframe (model 2015) in order to fit the current panniers…..

I'll take my roll-bag instead; cheaper anyway…...
