Hi from NorCal

Just picked up my white Z650 last weekend and already put 200 miles on it Road it form the dealership straight to the coast. Can't wait to get over the break-in period and experience the full RPM range. This is my 2nd bike after my R3 - a nice upgrade and loving the torque down low so far!

Been looking for a windscreen/windshield but no place seems to have them in stock yet. Anyone else having luck finding one?

I haven't found one yet either, although I put on a National Cycle Deflector screen (sitting around the garage from an old bike), and it works pretty good, other than doesn't really fit the style of the bike.
I've looked for Puig, Ermax, and Power Bronze, all look good, styled for the bike, but aren't here in the states yet.
By the way, welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forums and congratulations.

Did a few quick searches and haven't come up with anyone so far but I'm pretty sure we'll be getting something soon enough.

A lot of Kawi's have similar design, anyone who really wants a screen that looks right should start with other models and work from that point forward.

Even with minor modification, I'm sure you can fab something up from an existing Kawi to fit and just use that for the time being. But if it doesn't look fitting, I'll feel really awkward about it lol

The European ones that I have seen all mount with brackets attached to the holes for that little deflector thing above the headlight, Puig and PowerBronze, specifically. On their websites, you can see the install instructions to get a better idea. Both of those also are styled to match the Z shapes.
