Which kit did you go with, and how involved was the install?

I went with the Vagabond Motorsports tail kit. It’s a bit cheaper than the other options but the quality really impressed me( everything fits perfectly). One of its best selling points is that it’s made to use all of the stock lights with no wiring modifications required.

Installation was a breeze(took me an hour), the product comes with step by step instructions plus there’s a very detailed video online which I used.

Yeah, Vagabond is one of the best out there for looks and cost. When I originally got the Z650, there wasn't anything available, so I had to research on how to modify something to work. I found the Vagabond Z125 kit, and with minor adjustment, it fit like a glove. (still on my Z650 to this day) The company saw what I did to modify and install it, so they sent me a brand new Z650 kit once production was finished, and used the basis of my tutorial for their video. I ended up doing a giveaway for the kit they sent me, since the one I modified worked so well. Top-notch company that doesn't try to gouge the customer for a piece of stamped metal.

No problem bro, you’re gonna enjoy that kit. That was one of the best modifications I’ve done to my Z by far.

Really curious


How does it work on rainy days? Do you get more dirt on your back compared to the stock fender?
It's my daily ride so this is very important to me

Your back will get more water thrown on it. Any time you remove the standard fender that will be an issue.
