2013-2016 tank the same shape??

I am just wondering whether the tanks of the Zx6R 636 are the same from 2013/14 through to the 2016 range. Reason I ask is that I am looking to buy some stomp grips or similar and most of the ads state 2014+. Just want to make sure they will fit, before I purchase.

That's true from '09 on, isn't it?

Yes, 2009 - 2017 fuel tanks are the same, just different paint and/or decals depending on which year. But for tank grips, if you are getting the four piece set, they are made specific for 2009 - 2012, and then 2013 - 2017, because the side panels that go around the tank were changed in 2013.

Perfect, thanks for your help.

On another note, I have a brand new set of clear stomp grips for a 2016 ZX6R if anyone is interested. 2 large ones are clear and 2 smaller ones are black. I ordered them in black from revzilla, but they sent clear ones by mistake and this does not suit my KRT edition paint work. They have since given me a full refund and do not want them back due postage cost sending back to USA, so I am only out of pocket by £25 for the customs charge.

Has ANYTHING AT ALL changed since 2013 except for color schemes and decals?

Straight lines show the bike.
Curves show the rider.
