SW-MOTECH mountings for topcase / sidecases -- USA 2012 ZX-14R
Has anyone successfully used the SW-MOTECH mounts for the topcase and sidecases on a new USA version of the 2012 ZX-14R? I understand the pipes would need to be lowered for the sidecase mounts, but I still do not have any verification whether the mounting brackets will fit the new design of the bike. Twisted Throttle will not guarantee that either of the mounts will work for the 2012 model, and their customer service says to check back in a couple of months.
sideracks mount: KFT.08.514.150 or KFT.08.514.20000.B
topracks mount: GPT.08.161.100.B; 36040-0059-H8 (black)
Does anyone know whether the 36040-0059 will fit on the USA 2012 ZX-14R? That part is the previous European tail plate with holes for the passenger grab bar to be mounted, which is also used to bolt on the SW-MOTECH mount for the topcase. [The USA version has no holes for a grab bar, and will not work for the SW-MOTECH mount.]
