Go to Rocky Mountain and set up an account.
Go to the OEM parts look up and find your part.

For example, if you want to know if the air cleaner element is common to past KLRs you would follow this string: OEM Parts> Kawasaki>Motorcycle>2022>KL650FNFNL KLR650*>Air Cleaner

Select the picture of the air filter element and click on the find number above it. You will see a box pop up with the details:

Now, RMATV's fiche is not smart, but Partzilla's is. Go to Partzilla and enter the part number. This will come back:

See there, in the box called 'Related Fitment'? You can scroll through that and see what motorcycles use that filter. It was all of the KLR650s and the KLX650s.

If you ask Partzilla to bring up a part that is not common to Gen1 and/or Gen 2 you will get this:
No products matched.

This is because a) Partzilla does not have the 2022 parts list yet and b) because the footrest is not common to anything but the 2022 KLR.

*There are 10 models of 2022 KLR650 listed in the RMATV parts list. Pick the one that applies to your bike so you can be sure to find the part you are looking for (though there is very little difference beyond decals, accessories and ABS).

The Babbitts Kawasaki Parts House "Search screen" seems to be even Smarter than Partzilla's "Search screen",
OEM Parts Part Search Results

But for some unknown reason, Babbitts doesn't have ANY 2022 model Bikes, ATVs, SxS or PWC in their parts system Yet!

I really wish that RMATV/MC had the parts search screen. But it never hurts to compare prices between companies and that is easy to do with two or three screens open on a real computer.

You'll have to help me out here, Paul. In what way is it smarter? I don't see fitment information at Babbitts.

Obviously not. If they'd tried to hide that they could not have done a better job. It has the same info that Partilla does. It is nice that it is in chronological order.

Good morning Tom. Try not to laugh too hard at this question...
Can you or someone else please comment on the Kawasaki part number system and how it relates to other similar part numbers?
Example*
Here is the clutch release part number for a 2022. # 13102-0083

For a 2018 it is 13102-0039

The first 5 numbers are shared but the last 4 are unique and according to partzilla and others, it will only work on a 2022. It appears the part is the same but I'm not confident.
Any insight on the number hierarchy?
Thanks

The phrase "fits the following models and components" is not quite precise. It would be better stated "is used on the following models and components". It is true that it does fit those models, but it may fit other models.

@pdwestman is better at this than I, but I'll give it a go.

As you say, the base part number is common and the four-digit suffix is what makes the part number unique. If you go look at any Kawasaki parts diagram, you'll find that the clutch release lever is a 13102.

Kawasaki can be a bit idiotic with their part numbers. A part number can become unique simply by a change in paint color. While that part number is certainly used only on the 2022, we don't know if it will fit prior models, and vice versa, until we try it out. The change may be something that really doesn't affect fit, form, or function, and may be related to the color, the supplier, the material, the assembly method, yadda yadda, but we won't know about fit until we try it.
