2017 Lime Green Rear Seat cover for sale ?

Hi Folks,

As most of you know I have a " 2017 Ninja 300 KRT ABS ".

I have been looking for the hard Rear Seat cover in Lime Green, which is Kawasaki Part Number 53065-0064-777. But my search is coming up 0. Seems like everybody is either out of stock or on back order with no estimated date of arrival.

Wondering if any forum members may have one for sale Or know where I can order / purchase one.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

I don't know, but what I can tell you is that I bought the lime green rear seat cover from china for $25 shipped and it fits, looks and feels very good.
I will take a picture tomorrow to show you how closely it resembles the oem lime green.

It's been on my bike for a year and a half and got no problems of any kind.

For $25, maybe you can get one of those while your wait for the OEM.

I am having a real difficult time finding this part. Seems like NOBODY has one in stock, including Kawasaki.

Another problem is that when I check vendors that are offering clones, they all say that their covers will not fit the 2017 model. Don't know why as I thought they were basically all the same.

There are a lot of parts that say they only go up to 16 but will fit the 17 as well. As far as I know they only changes made for 17 were emissions related. I think since the 17 has a slightly different build many manufacturers just omit it from their compatibility list as a CYA. I know for sure that the rear seat is identical. Can't see why anything else back there would be different.

Yes, the "Fits Kawasaki Ninja 300 2013-2016" is super annoying when searching for parts, but I've now just given up on listening to that (have a 2017 Winter Test Edition)...

I also have a 17 winter test. The only thing I would be leery of is anything to do with engine management as I think they changed some emissions stuff in 17.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, this one will not be making any engine / exhaust changes, as I am perfectly happy with the way it performs.

I may be Polish and Crazy, but that does not make me stupid.

Here is a pic of my knock off Chinese rear seat cowl. Now that I pay attention, ir's a bit darker than OEM.
I checked the seller that I bought it from, and he doesn't offer it anymore. May it be becoming a hard to find item?

I am somewhat color blind.

But " personally ", the color of the back cover looks correct. While the color of the bike looks off shade to me.

Believe me when I say, it is getting extremely hard to find this part, especially the factory cover. Seems like everybody that advertises the factory cover states that it is out of stock, with a do not know " Estimated Date of Arrival ". To me it almost seems like Kawasaki is no longer offering the cover, even though they still advertise it on the web site.
