The still look like part of the Front Brake Rotor to me.......

Thanks @The Pope.
The ones you talk about are bobbins of each of the two floating rotors in the front, but they are not bearings at al.

The early and late models aren't that different mechanically. I had one of each pretty much disassembled recently and I cannot remember seeing a part like that - much less seven of them.
In fact, I've looked in the bin that contains the leftovers of the one that didn't go back together and I still can't find a part that looks like that.

What have I done!!!!!

Well........ "could they be" from some other project (as in - not from the bike) that you had worked on and they were just laying in the general area where you placed the parts from your bike when you worked on it?

If not, just take one of them to your local Kawasaki Dealer and tell them you need another one of them for you bike. See if they say sure, here it is or if they say, that's not used on your bike.

As a personal working rule, I normally use a magnetic tray to collect all the bolts, nuts, washers and stuff from the disassembling and there they where at the end of the job!!!!
But I might have mixed stuff up...now I’m starting to doubt...I’ll go to the dealer, very good point! Let’s just hope they don’t ask where I took them from.

Magnetic you say? Are you sure it was empty when you started the job?

SORRY, but I am still laughing bout that... taking them to a parts counter, and asking that young service fellow will likely get you a look, and comment like "HUNH??? I dunno...." as he looks at you like a deer in the headlights...

as I said, I actually did go thru the microfiche... even though I know it's not from the bike... and can safely say they ain't from your bike.... some other project... they look like roller slide parts from a drawer assembly...

they surely aren't rotor buttons, and as you noted you only messed with the rear brakes, which have NO rotor buttons... ain't them...

the part that throws me off is the 7 quantity.. toss them in a bag somewhere, and forget about them until you remember where they REALLLLLY came from.

rotor buttons are just a hat shaped sleeve, not a bearing.. same parts from ZX14 are used on C14... look like this...

Hello everybody,
I’m reporting back in order to put everyone at peace...just as Michelle suggested, these friggin 7 bearings belong to a previous project I was working with, the wife told me so before I opened this topic in the forum, but hey...what does she know?
Sorry to trouble you guys.
You don’t want to know my stands at home now!!!!

Were you cleaning your fidget spinners before you worked on your Connie?

Ohhhh brother!
If you must know...
I was cleaning my father’s old tools boxes, found these bearings to be used in I don’t know what and totally forgot about it. Then the wheels... (all of a sudden) came out of the Connie and the problem appeared.
What are you going to do?
Again...SORRY!
