The dealer where I purchased my 2015 discounted whatever extras I wanted. The factory liners was one of them. I like the way the zippers work to allow loading from the top. Other liners unzip where the sides flop open if you have a preference that way. There's a nice inside pocket for a laptop and another pocket on the outside. You can use the outside one without opening everything else up. Other liners may have these features and more and other members may chime in on those. The quality looks really good on the factory set too.

Yes, Kawasaki brand. With the discount they were right at $120. On eBay some of the other brands run about $80 if you want to check those out.

Went with the following:

Techspec Snake skin:  The tank guards where your thighs sit on the tank.
Bestem:  Liners for inside hard bags.
Knight Designs:  Maybe peg lowering kit.
Top Block (didn't like the Bumper car look):  Canyon cages

But, it is best to do some research or check out the stuff on another's ride.  What works for me may not work for you.  This forum is great for ideas and spending money... :)

Hi FTB530 - congratulations on the new bike, you will love it!  I have the case liners from Bestem on Amazon, very satisfied with them.  These also open from the top so that you can get things in and out without taking the liner out of the case.  I like the Spirit jacket from Cycle Gear.  Comfortable, looks good, and has removable zip-in liner which makes it versatile.

A highest priority farkle should be a cruise control or throttle lock.  I got the black milled Throttlemeister from Competition Accessories.
