Yeah, I have the '90 white one. :mrgreen:

I don't think anyone ever made white shrouds for the H-series unless it was to match an aftermarket tank (ie; same manufacturer). You could try having them vinyl wrapped by a local sign shop (think like the cars you see that are rolling billboards). Would probably have to be redone from time to time but would be better than nothing. As for fenders, the '06-'08 YZ450F front fender is an easy add on and is available in white. Just redrill the mounting holes and your done. Rear fender is a whole different story. I took my stock fender, along with some written measurements, to a local Cycle Gear and compared to all the rear fenders they had to get an idea on what might work. I ended up with using the '06-'08 YZ450F rear fender and it is available in white as well. Good luck!

ya youre bike makes me drool i saw a white graphics kit i can use for the shrouds. the only difference i see is the seat from the 90s models so modding the rear fender would be the only issue i already got a white headlight.

One of the H KDX years had white shrouds 99? Maybe? Check ebay and see what they have used.

They're listed as discontinued.

Cole454's (if he still has them) really look like they could be cleaned up nicely with a little effort. He's got a closeup picture on page 2 of his thread.

I didn't see them listed as discontinued on whichever OEM parts website. Didn't look there, and don't know if they have them. That's just the status code Kawasaki has them at in their online parts book.

Ask them if they are in stock. Lots of places are glad to take your money, then tell you a couple of days later it i cancelled. Find a brick and mortar Kawasaki store to use dealer look up to see if another dealer has had them setting on a shelf.

I doubt anyone can order them from a Kawasaki warehouse, but good luck.
Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

I like white plastics also, but put on black fenders cause it was easy. When they get too messed up I will swap on white ones. I got the white shrouds off ebay cheap. they were a bit yellowed, but new graphics covered most of it. Cycra and UFO have late model KXF front fenders in white that should bolt on. For the rear I think you could "make" a white fender work. I have an old late '90s ATK (same as KTM) rear fender I think I might try.

You could have the existing stuff wrapped any color scheme, I hear it's expensive though. Here's a rental bike with a fancy wrap.
