I've had the bike for almost 2 years now and I have never liked the headlight. Most people like it but it's just not my steeze. I picked this up from Revzilla and I gotta say that I am loving it. I also threw on some led projector lamps just to test out. Here are pics with and without them.

I also removed the Danmoto exhaust because of the new California law. Done with mods. Just need a Corbin seat.

I was, however not much to it. Just removed the headlight. Does not work with existing bracket but no need to remove either. I'll make a small video just to show a closer more detailed look just to show how easy it is. Links to what I installed.

Hey everyone! I'm brand new to the forum. Just picked up my beautiful baby last week. A matte black Z650 with the green trellis frame.
Seems a little early to go digging into modifying her looks but I really dig the retro looking round headlights. Really nice look Czrlaker.
I also found that retro black Z650 on pinterest earlier today but there seems to be very few people doing this kind of look on our bike.
There are some cool examples of modded Versys 650 and older ER-6s.

Do it.... I love this bike. I was on the fence about trading it in for a z900 but don't need the extra CCs. I like seeing mods on this bike. Gives ideas. For me tho I'll be keeping the street tires because I do go riding with a group up to the mountain twisties east of San Diego. But the tires look legit with the cafe style. And welcome to the family.

I think I will! But I do have a few priorities up on the list.
This will be my daily commuting machine, come rain or shine, on a very windy and long bridge, highway and city traffic involved. So I need to get her ready for that first. Frame sliders, handlebar riser, windshield..
I would also stick to the street tires. That's what I really like about that Versys 650 mod. The style is there but the function of the machine hasn't been messed around with. Thats what I'll probably be shooting for when I get to it.

And welcome to the family.
Thanks!!:smile2:

Thanks had been wanting to do it for a while. Finally pulled the trigger. I'll eventually get around to trying one of these. But I went with the glass one because I could easily replace the bulb
Love the look of the new headlight. Any pics from the side and top close up? I’m wanting to see how clean the install is before pulling the trigger on the new headlight.

Can someone give me information on how they mounted bar end mirrors on the z650. Or even drop a link of where I can get the ones you did . I haven’t bought any yet , but have read that the handle bars are NOT the universal size of 7/8. And I’m not sure if this is true.
