How many of you guys changed your factory lowers for a set from Vernon or Edmonds of the Gadets fixed pages.
And was it worth the change ?

They absolutely make a world of difference. About all Kawasaki gives ya is a great set of lower mounts. But the first mod I did was toss the stock plastic and replace em with Edmonds.



I later modified em a bit to match up better with the replacement Rifle shield, and here's a pic taken just today !

Lowers

I just made my own. Cost about $8.00 and a couple hours work. They do make a big difference.

I like the look of yours, I am guessing you just used your factory ones for a templet but made them longer. Did you use Plexie or Lexan ?

I have them on my bike and they are great. In addition to being taller (or longer) they are wider with notches for the engine guards.When I turn the bars to full lock they miss the bars by less than a qtr inch. That is a great fit.

I did make them 8" longer, which brought them 1" lower and up to the bottom of the windshield. They did end up a little wider (about 3/4/") because I followed the same taper all the way to the top. This brought the lowers within an 1/8" of the engine guards at full lock and the same width as the windshield at the top. I didn't want them any wider. I thought that they had a cleaner look without the notch and they still ended up doing a great job.

I ended up using 3/16” Plexiglas. It is a little stiffer than Lexan. I still ended up adding a small aluminum L-bracket at the top to eliminate flex. I probably could have used thicker Plexiglas and got less flex but I wanted to stay with the same thickness as the windshield.
