So, the reason some people get the cowl without hardware is because the parts catalog has the cowl available as an assembly and as individual replacement parts. The catalog descriptions are too abstract to know exactly what you ordered without referencing the diagram. Sometimes the full kit is cheaper than the plastic alone and sometimes the price difference is extreme enough in the other direction that you might actually want to piece it together yourself.

The replicas online have the same security flaw as the original, which Kawasaki fixed for the 300’s solo seat cowl by giving it an L-shaped bracket that can’t be turned when you lift the back. It makes me wonder why they didn’t revise the solo cowl with a similar fix for the 250 years earlier. The thing is, they could have fixed it on both bikes even easier by making the locking pin have a ring groove instead of a notch. You could then turn it all the way around without retracting the spring-loaded locking lug/striker.
