Best thing to do maybe to ride to your local Kawasaki dealer and compare a meanstreak with you bike. This works for me! :)

Hey Blowy,
Why spend so much dosh? I'm presuming you will have to buy the pipes right? So why not just paint your originals pipes (heat shields) with Dupli-Color High Heat Ceramic spray paint. $20 a can and it works! Looks real good and stays on. I can give you more of the low down if you wish.
Cheers.

Put a set on my classic and drilled them out with a 32mm hole saw. Souned good and looked ok. Only replaced them as I wanted two into ones. The only problem was that they rubbed my saddle bags.
Cheers.....Vic
You could have them but i am in Brisbane.

My local dealer told me today the only difference is the rear mounting brackets....but do you trust him? I am buying a set and am going to try them, if they work i'll let yall know.

they are basically the same motor so i dont see why they wouldnt fit,but yes the mounting bracket would be in a different spot so you would have to make one up to fit

With people chopping and changing exhausts, does anyone have a set of heat shields that would fit an 07 Nomad lying around that they are willing to part with. Time to do a bit of experimentation.
