This item is made from stainless steel and is made to fit a Kawasaki KLV 1000cc of any year. It is made from 1.2mm thick material and offers a much more substantial option over the stock plastic one. It also looks a lot better! It is a very good fit and comes with replacement stainless fasteners as the standard mild steel screws are really poor quality and the rear one is very hard to get to as it is obscured by the frame. My fasteners have socket (Allen key) heads and can be undone from various angles.
