Recommended Posts

I was wondering since 2005. What years had the same frame all the way up until 2014?


 


 


Anybody know which years the frame was the exact same?

They didn't make a 2005. 2006-08 should interchange, 2009-2011, and 2012-2014. There may have been subtle differences, but those years should swap over.

I agree with mx317. from what i am reading, most of the changes in the frames didnt come around until 2009 when they introduced the fuel injection and added another engine mount for safety concerns. on the 2006-2008 i dont see the mount there mostly because that would be where the carb and carb controls were. it seems that after the FI was added that the mount was moved down a little to provide more stability but still in the same general location. maybe thats just me, but it looks that way.  most of the differences in the frames were making it narrower, or lighter, or changing the mounts out from aluminum to titanium, to steel.

so they should be interchangable with the years prior to the model and maybe the one just after that model. but to say for certain im not sure. it honesly would take calling kawasaki and probably asking them about the part numbers and seeing if they are identical parts rather that wasting money trying to figure it out for yourself.

 

hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure it's something like 2006-08 are the same, 2009-2010, 2011-2012 and 2013-2014.

 

Some parts from a 2009 will not swap with a 2013 and some will. You can interchange FI engine on some years, but the tanks and plastics will have to be changed because the frame is narrower. It depends on what you want to do. If your talking a complete frame swap from let's say an 09 to a 2013, it would require more than just the frame to put it all together.

The 2011-2012 are not the same. Different plastics, widths, air boxes, etc. As I said 2006-2008, 2009-2011, and 2012 to current.

True, 2009-2011, who cares.. Point being, lots of things will interchange from the 2006-2013, some do not. Back to my original post, it depends on what you really want to do. Straight frame swap? from what year to what year are you looking at?
