1980 KZ 1000 air cleaner

I have been checking around the internet for a replacement air cleaner the Kawasaki Part Number is listed as # 11013-1015.
I have found listings for a part # 11013-063 on several sites that state that it will fit the KZ- 1000 -E series does anyone know if it will this is confusing

I owned a 79 and now own a 1980 KZ1000E and never used the two part factory air box system. The thing is so bulky, I switched to using a Z1 airbox... much more friendly when installing or removing the carbs. In any case, the correct air filter is 11013-1015


The air filter is no longer made so just pick one up from eBay. The other air filter WILL NOT WORK as it is designed for a different air box system; the ones used on most all the other models except the shafty.

Just go K&N air filters I did that a LONG time ago on my 79 st shafty. I only have the bottom half of the air box on it to hold the kick starter which I have never used. LOL
