Pillion grab handle

Have been doing a fair bit of research across a number of ZX14 sites and have observed in some pictures a ZX14 with a pillion passenger grab handle. In Oz, I have not come across a bike with such a feature but I am very interested in it as an accessory. Does anyone know why some ZX14s have 'em and some don't. Also, I haven't seen any on Ebay, either the Oz version of the American version.

I intended to accompany the thread with a picture but yet to work out how to attach.

MZXRCR.....thanks for the info.

Was after something that intergrated more with a black ZX14 i.e. a black grab handle. I thought Kawasaki may have produced a grab handle as an accessory.......guess not!

See right side bike in picture

Last year before driving to BikeWeek in Daytona, I needed a support for my bag. I made a stainless attachment that was very strong, and left the cowl in place.

Though the form/shape is different than the grab handle, it would have been just as easy to make it into a grab handle, and still leave the cowl on.





Since then I found a Corbin with the detatchable back rest.
