z1000 vs z1000sx tail

Hello guys , does anybody know if under a z1000's tail there are the bolt holes like in z1000sx for passenger's rack or for side bags (see the attached photos)? If there are, is it possible that the "black-plastic-under the tail" of a z1000sx will fit on a z1000? thank you all.

You would have to switch the entire assembly to make this work. You dont have hidden bolt holes on the z. The parts will switch over, but th e list is pretty long to make the conversion. Very expensive unless you use ebay.


Where are you at? If you are in Utah, I think we could work out a trade. I would rather have the z subframe on my Ninja.

i dont think we can make this work cause im in Greece i wanted to make a side bags rack.If its that complicated i will make one with an extra holder on passengers foot( check the attached photo with the red lines). Do you guys think this will be ok?

I suppose you're already familiar with these:

The video on the site I linked indicates that they slide on to the support rods. I've wanted them for a couple years now, but can't justify the cost.

No, these are our motorcycles, and we all need/want different things from them. Insane, is trying to save a few dollars and never building the bike like you think it should be or building what you actually need.

Yeah, I've used Nelson-Rigg soft saddlebags, and they do the job fine, but they aren't as cool as the SW-motech set.
