Thought I would share photo of my Winter 2019 resto project. Taken today during a one of my favourite local rides through Hampshire UK. I have the Kawasaki badge for the left side crankcase cover but not fitted yet. Anyone suggests a suitable glue?

If you never want it to come off use epoxy. Where did you get the badge from? I cannot get one for my 84 ZN1100.

Nice bike by the way. I remember when these first came out. I wanted one so badly but figured I needed the 750 which was not available until 1982. I bought a CB900F instead. Beautiful bike but not nearly as much fun to ride as a Kawi.

Hi WFO-KZ badge sourced through many patient days searching ebay. Took almost a year to find the NOS part. 😢

You are indeed fortunate to find an OEM badge. This is what mine looks like (see below). And thanks for the offer Alex_GPZ, that's very kind of you. I never thought about 3D printing it. My plan is to keep the bike looking as original as possible so I have a guy who is going to try CNC machining one for me. Hope it works out. I also found a guy who can print high heat decals on what looks like a brushed aluminum background. That is currently plan "B".
