Has anyone fit GIVI TO 2014 SX
« on: September 13, 2017, 02:01:13 PM »
Ive bought a givi rack for a 2011 z100sx part no 4100FZ-KZ4100.
Its supposed to be the right one and was fitting ok until I tried to fit the bracket that fits between the under seat and tail unit.
The bracket is the same width as the tail unit so it obviously wont fit into it.
Has anyone fitted one to the 2014 model or know the right part number.

The 2014 models onwards use Kawasaki's own internal rack system with inserts in the grab rails that the panniers slot into along with extensions to the pillion footrests that hold the base of the panniers  and I have not seen or heard of anyone using the external racks for the 2011-2013 SX on a 2014 onwards.  Not to say that it cannot be done - just never heard of it and given the look and simplicity of the revised 2014 system - why would you?

If you don't have the panniers with the bike but have panniers that will fit this rack, are happy with function over form and want to save a few hundred ££ then i can see why.

Hi, I done want panniers , just a top box and rack.
I will eventually buy a small top box but just want the rack/brackets for now. I will fit my own load shelf to take my camping gear.
