I can't find this part for the life of me

I have a 2011 ninja. The tail is busted to all hell and I've been looking for a replacement. The problem is, I can't find the same color. I can find black, but on my bike it's like a black textured matte. I did find the single sided tail fairings, but this is all one solid piece and thats what I'm gunning for. Any help would be appreciated.

Hmmm, not a 100% sure but I don't think any of the 08-12 ninja's came with a matte black textured finish for the tail fairing. The side fairings below the seat are a softer plastic and all came in black with that textured finish no matter what colour the bike was. Also I'm pretty sure they all have a 2 piece tail fairing from the factory with a small crossover piece between them at the back. Any chance your bike was painted with these tail fairings on the bike which are hiding the seams between the sections. Maybe your bike has some aftermarket parts on it? Might explain why you can't find exactly what you are looking for. I have a 2012 and could post some pics if you like of the tail fairings with my back seat off?

Yeah dude, that'd be chill. I really want to get this thing back to perfection and this tail is just nasty.

Might have to do this one pic at a time? But first pic is where the key goes in. There is a seam there with a hex bolt above and below the keyhole. You have to take riders seat off to see bottom bolt.

Third pic is of the separate crossover section at the back over top the tail light. It's held on with Velcro tape.

Last pic is left side at the back. Sorry for all the posts. Hope this helps. If you search this forum you should be able to find an on line manual that will explain a how to remove the tail section. There's about 4 hex bolts on top and 2 on the underside.
