Just bought my first Z650.
The frame is 1976/77 and engine is 1981.
As you can see it needs a lot of work, but apart from the rust it is on good condition.
My plan is to rebuild it.
Not sure yet if i go after original stock or my own creation. What do you guys think.?
I will post my progress in here.
Other than that thanks for a fantastic page. There is tonnes of very helpful information here. Keep up the good work

For some reason KZ650.info is not responding correctly, but I don’t think you have a 1981engine, it doesn’t have the clean air system (PAIR). Unless a previous owner removed it and swapped in a pre ‘78 cam cover. Please research this before ordering and parts to confirm your getting the correct stuff.
Thanks for the info.
I got the year of the engine by searching the engine number.
And it has a cdi ignition and is painted black as off 1981 Z650 F2 models.
How excactly do you get to the 1978 engine again.? Only by looking at the cam cover.?
Do you know any links to where i can check the engine numbers?
