Z650 (2017 - 2019)
Adjustable Pivoting Windshield System for your Kawasaki Z650 (2017 - 2019)
Transform your ride
MadStad's patented mounting system allows riders to adjust the height and angle of their motorcycle windshield resulting in much smoother airflow, better wind protection and a more comfortable ride than any fixed windshield can provide. Better still, this system pivots down out of your way for naked bike / hot weather riding so you get the best of both worlds!
What's included in the kit
Our complete drop-in system is custom-made for your bike and includes everything needed to mount and position the shield. Your bike will not require any modification.
- MadStad adjustable pivot brackets
- The acrylic windshield
- Solid 7/8" aluminum crossbar
The brackets attach beneath the factory fly screen and pivot forward and back to give you full control over the windshield position. Set it up and back for highway wind protection, or forward and down for maximum air on hot days. You still have the MadStad patented height and angle control to dial in smooth airflow and great wind protection either way. The crossbar is for stability but can also be used for attaching a handlebar mount for your smartphone or GPS unit. That will position it up front and center, much easier to view while riding.
Size and Color
While the MadStad windshield systems are fully adjustable, we recommend starting with the appropriate shield size relative to rider height. These are general recommendations and can vary depending on your inseam, seat height and riding position. See the detailed measurement instructions below.
|RIDER HEIGHT||SHIELD SIZE|
|5'8" to 5'10" (173 - 178 cm)||18" (450 mm)|
|5'11" to 6'1" (181 - 186 cm)||20" (500 mm)|
|6'2" and taller (188+ cm)||22" (550 mm)|
HOW TO MEASURE: Sit on the bike in riding position and hold a tape measure straight up from the ignition switch (no key). Estimate where your mouth level is as you look straight ahead then add 1 inch if you have an odd number. For example, if your mouth level looks to be at about 19 inches then you would order a 20 inch windshield. The top edge of our 20 inch shield is 19 inches above the ignition switch when set in its lowest position. If your mouth level looks to be at 20 inches you would still order a 20 inch shield. You can always raise it up another 2 inches in our brackets but we want to make sure you can look over the top of the shield comfortably.
All MadStad windshields are made from 3/16" (4.5 mm) thick cast acrylic and are available in four different colors. See photos bar for a comparison image.
