One reason I bought the 2009 ZX-14 was the color, Kawasaki calls it, Candy Lime Green (CLG). I know it's a color that most people either love or hate, but I love it!
This is it the day it came home.
I had always wondered what it would look like if it were all CLG. In 2011, Kawasaki released the ZX-14 in a 2 tone, CLG and Black. I immediately started lusting after the CLG grills(the green panels under the gas tank) and lower cowling.
This is a 2011....
Last spring, one of the on-line parts dealers was having a good sale on OEM parts, so I bought a set of 2011 grills in CLG...
Here's the bike with the new grills...
This summer, I had an unfortunate incident... I dropped the bike during a low speed u-turn. I scuffed the lower cowling on right side.
A few weeks ago I started shopping the on-line OEM parts dealers for CLG lowers. The first few places I checked had either "unobtainable" or "call us" next to the items. I was able to locate a set at a decent price.
Late last week, the big brown UPS truck stopped at the house and left a package!
Before I could get them mounted we had some cold temps and a small snow storm.
