I found this while surfing the internet. Thought I would share it with everyone. I wish I would have had this when my bike went sliding down the road.

Kawasaki Z1000 (2010) -Engine Case Cover - ECC0077BK

This will keep the road from rubbing a hole in the engine casing if you ever slide your bike on its side. It could mean the difference between you driving away from an accident or having to throw the bike in the back of a truck. (Mine bled to death thru a hole in the engine casing).:mad:

I recently bought some frame sliders for my Z too, but I don't think they will save the engine cover.
I would highly recommend this as I will soon be buying it.:D

Wish I had this today!!

I went down this morning and I'm on the internet right now trying to find a replacement cover. Mine has a big hole in it now and all the oil ran out on the street!! Any suggestions on where I can find a replacement?

Rufus - glad you are okay - thats the important part.

You are likely going to have to go with OEM for that cover replacement.

Shouldn't a decent set of sliders mostly take care of that problem? I only say that because the R&G covers are pretty hideous.
My sentiments exactly... Damn those things are ugly, and the crash protectors I have are made to prevent this from happening anyway...

Guys, Hi, I am new here, but I have an 03 Z1000, and I found that the case savers on my bike were hideous to begine with. They started to fade in color, and to be honest, I don't think they would do a whole lot to prtect the engine case in the event of a slide. I have designed a set of case covers, and had them madeout of billet aluminum for an 03-06 Z1000. If anyone is intersted in a set, I made 4 sets to start with. I paid a good bunch to have them made, but am willing to sell them for like $100 per set. They are straight billet aluminum, with chamfered edges, and inset screw holes, as it seems some of the others you can buy are only 2-sided tape for mounting. These use the existing holes. The only thing I recommend is putting a slightly longer Allen bolt in the original locations. If anyone is interested, Please send me an email, or call me directly. My email address is [email protected], and my phone # is (484) 995-1074. I am not sure what the shipping would be, but it shouldn't be much.
