I just ordered a set of theses, It states 2.68 inch outside diameter. I measure 2.6875 on my stock wheel center hole. Metal alloy and they go in from the back. $22 for 4 on Amazon. I'll let you know how they workout. ITP Manufacturer number SM130BBX. Many other styles available , just look for golf cart center caps that are 2.6875"

You all are just wasting money. To fix this oversight of some Kawasaki engineering designer who never tests their design in the real world, is to purchase a 4 pack of mixed fruit or jello etc. Eat it and then take the empty cups, spray paint the inside with your favorite color then remove the wheel and insert through center hole. The flange of the cup will be held between the rim and the spindle. The ones I used looks as good as factory. I can upload pictures if you need them. 25 dollars for an OEM replacement is ridiculous. Only them more ridiculous than that would be the guy willing to pay that.

Lol, good solution.

For me, remove them. I need as much clearance as possible. I just painted all four corners to match.

You can see how much time I spend on the rocks.

If you’re serious, I’ve got to see pics. 😂. I did the silicone thing before my first ride. Seems to work so far.
