This is correct.

Voyager One more fairing question: What type plastic is used on the late model KLRs? Mine is a ‘17.

I found one thread on fairing repairs that said ABS was used on the later models and polypropylene on the earlier models. I would not have guessed my fairings were ABS by handling them. They felt very flexible and flimsy compared to my BMW fairings which are definitely ABS and are quite stiff when handled. It may simply be the material thickness and design (BMW tends to have lots of gussets and stiffening webs molded in) rather than material type, but I was curious to know what material is used in my 2017.

92015A = 92015-1692 RH?
92015B = 92015-1700 LH?
Yes, I transposed the 2&0 going from memory as I typed the numbers after inserting the image. I don’t see an A and B, just a 92015 and a 92015A, but I see what you mean by left and right. The odd thing is that they looked identical when I had them out, but I am guessing the left side is a tad longer since it has one more layer of plastic to hold as compared to the right side. It is the right side that was put in crooked and mushed asymmetrically, so it looks like I need the 92015-1692 part.

Thanks all for helping me get this sorted.

Well, duh, I didn’t even see that the part number had a link behind it to a more detailed page. Thanks, and I agree it looks like the correct part.

Voyager Can someone help me ensure I have the correct part number for the rubber well nut that is used on the upper inside bolt on the side fairings? The parts diagrams at both Partzilla and Bike Bandit seem to indicate that this is part number 90215A which is just described as a nut. However, the description for part number 90215 seems more like what I have now which says nut, rubber, 6mm.

I've never ordered from partzilla, maybe I ought to compare?

ps, As a former Kawasaki Dealer, I try to encourage people to Support their local dealership or Independant Service Facility when ever possible. Without their presents in your area it may become an even longer drive to get truly needed assistance for Real Problems.
UPS, Fed EX and others are getting rich as the Brick & Mortar, mom & pop stores are closing.
I hope I didn't come across as knocking the kawasakipartshouse site. I check it regularly, and it's good to know they have a part# search. I haven't explored the local dealer option yet. Perhaps I should…

I agree and do the same, but my dealer is 67 miles away so it isn’t convenient to go there for a $5 part. Well, there is a dealer closer by, about 30 miles, but they jerked me around so much when I was trying to buy my KLR last year that I went to the one 67 miles away to make the purchase. The closest dealer acted like they didn’t care if I bought a KLR or not. So I didn’t, at least not from them. They had two in the crate and after two phone calls and two visits over the course of a month they could not even be bothered to assemble one for a test ride. So, I definitely won’t give them any parts or service business.

I also like the videos that John Talley (SP?) at Partzilla makes. He is one of the better techs on youtube - always very technically accurate. And his video presence is comparable to Tim2Wheels. He doesn’t specialize in any one brand of bike or ATV, but he has done a few videos on a few basic KLR maintenance items.

As for other sites, I've seen Paul talk about this one, but I don't know of any others where you can order parts from microfiche (I'd be interested to learn some new ones tho). Also, this one seems more expensive that partzilla:
