They are listed as 375.84 (pounds) on Cornwall Kawasaki's web page.  I calculate that as $601.34.  I emailed them today to check on shipping cost.  If I get a reply, I will post the info here.

My post on page 3, "Got email from Tatiana. Ouch, $732 US to get them delivered."

I received email from Cornwall Kawasaki Centre this morning.  Shipping on the engine guards is 79 (pounds) for a total of 454.84 (pounds) or $713.10.  Pretty much the same as Top Block.

Does anyone have a photo of these installed on a 2010? It's either these of the ADA compliant bars (and these look so much better).

I think Fred Harmon has posted a picture of his 2010 with the top blocks showing them working. It might even be in this thread. If not, it's in one of the recent tip over bar threads. I'm short on time to go look for you right now. But maybe I'll come across it later, if you haven't found it already.

Yes he did. It was post number one, that started this whole thread. Here you go.  ;)

I've installed the Top Block French made tip over protection and put a photo gallery on line. You can see it here:

Its not cheap, but it fits in with the look of the bike very nicely. This is the same company that made the Kawasaki tip over protector accessory that was sold in Europe. You'll notice it's changed a little to accommodate the 2010 bike. It does require you to drill a 1 inch hole in your lower black fairing panel.

Definitely looks like a worthwhile addition.
Previously owned a ST and the "wings" were a big plus on an occasion or two saving the expensive plastic parts.
Does anyone know if the Top Block is available for the 2012 model yet?

The 12 is the same as the 10 & 11 so you should be good.

I have a whole photo gallery of them here: http://www.pbase.com/fredharmon/topblock

This is the photo you're probably looking for.
