Hey guys, any of you know if it's possible to fit the 2014 KAWA NINJA 1000 KQR saddlebags on the 2011 model ? Tx.

That's what I've read also, Anything can be done with time and money but to answer your question, without some serious time and money then no it cannot bolt right up.

Trying

I just bought a set of 2014 QR's to go on my 2012 Ninja 1000. It looked to me like all you have to do is swap out the passenger grab rails and maybe the rear pegs. I figured it would be worth a shot at trying. What's the worst that can happen, I have to return them? They should be in later this week and I'll let you know.

I checked the part numbers and they are identical for the rear pegs and the grab rails between the 2012 and the 2014. I think it will work without issue. I'll need to come up with a way to do some turn signals mounted on the bags and a quick disconnect for the signals on my fender eliminator.

Nice! Thanks for taking the big step for the rest of us! I also like your choice in tools (hammer on the floor).

TONS of issues! Honestly, I will not do a write up on this because it was so extensive. It was taking things off, shaving down brackets, putting back on, checking, making additional bracket, testing, making new brackets, etc. I really would not recommend doing it. Go to the thread I started and vote on my poll. If I have enough interest, I may manufacture them for people. the same process should work for the z1000's.

I am going to have to do an integrated tail light for it. There's just no way to fit the turn signal stalks in with the bags, and trying to come up with a quick disconnect for the stock turn signals just isn't feasible. I still have to come up with a way to attach it at the bottom on the passenger pegs.

When they said the whole rear section of the 2014 is different, they weren't kidding. sub frame, passenger pegs, ecu mount, plastics, everything is different.

Check out my thread and to see some additional pictures of the issues I'm still having.
