Hey folks,

New to the forum and this is my first post. I picked up a new Ninja 1000 about three weeks ago. I'm really loving the bike so far. I purchased a pit bull swingarm jack and some spools so I can work on the bike. The rear fender is in the way when using the jack. I would like to remove the rear fender to make it easier to work on the bike and clean up the appearance, too. Does anyone know which part # Evotech tail tidy kit will work for this bike? I sent an email to Evotech support and they sent me a link to the kit they make for the Ninja 10R. I stated in my email that I had an 2011 Ninja 1000, but I'm wondering if they thought I meant the 10R instead?

Thanks for any pointers...

Kenny

I installed my EVOTECH Tail Tidy on my Ninja a couple of weeks ago. The install was easy and product is top notch. Gives the bike a completely different look with the stock splash guard removed.

Part# 7851 under the Z1000SX model (same as Ninja)

+1 kitch. Nice fit and finsh. A little light on the instuctions/pics. With lbs/dollars conversion plus credit card fee= $112. Turn signals and tag light mount as good or better then factory set up. Look is lean and clean. Would post pictures, but it's beyond my computer skills...sorry (Ninja1000)

Ask for the z1000 kit, its the same..Ninja1000 is a zed with fairings..
You do have to be a little careful with that because the Ninja 1000 has a different subframe and tail section. That said, the mountings for the tail are the same in that instance.

It seems the 12 ninja 1000 is a little different than the z1000. I took some pictures and the mounting bolts need to be at least 30mm long in order to get them up into the rear section far enough for the bolts that are toward the front of the bike. The rears I can just barely get the nuts onto.

Here are a couple pictures.




Notice the thickness of the metal to the front of the bike where the bolts pass through and then notice how the rear bolts are sunk into the metal to like half the thickness

Now look at that lip on the plastic that goes around where the wires pass through. Pretty crazy stuff right there. That little bit of a difference makes me need just 5mm longer bolts. What a load of crap!

Oh well, if it wasn't difficult every one would be doing it, lol.
