Need Center Cowling

Trying to find center cowling for a 2017 KLR650. Haven't had any luck. The best I have found was a broken one on ebay for over $150. Looking to see if someone has one here they want to sell.

I got REAL lucky when I picked up my '03 KLR... there was an usual number of Gen1 items for sale on CL. So, CL is a crap-shoot, but keep checking. I've seen some 'I just want it gone' stuff on Offer-Up, though there's also a lotta flakes there. eBay is also hit or miss but those 'Dismantlers' are really hustling and creating lots of Inventory for us Riders. Lastly, and another KLR-ista noted this in a similar request to yours... check the Dealer. Sure, mo' money, Mo' Money, MO' MONEY... but you make your purchase and you're done. I don't know if the mo' money would be a back-breaker, but it's worth a quick phone call to your local Kaw Dealer.
Best!

Thanks. Yep, saw the one at the diff Kaw dealers. $148 new. Hawkers on ebay want that much for used/broken one. May have to give in and go by way of dealer...

That dudn't sound too terribly awful bad...
'Just think... you COOOUULD have a Gen 1 and
when you needed new Radiator Shrouds...
YOU CAN'T EVEN GET 'EM AT THE DEALER!
'Most either 'go without' or 'craft' something as I understand ('still new-er to this KLR thing).
I think you're gettin' away easy, especially if it's OEM oem!

I am reminded how many times I KNOCKED MYSELF SILLY tryin' to save 'just a few bucks'...
sometimes it weren't worth it none!

I always found the best prices for new parts at Pro Caliber out there near you. They show an upper section (90 bucks) but nothing called a center section.
