Looks amazing. Looking forward to the video. Definately plan on doing this as well at some point.  :047: :028:
+1, I don't like the Z900 cowl because it covers too much the sides... But this H2 cowl looks great!  :169:

Big big fan of this.

Wish they made it in the 2020 blue color

Im thinking seriously about the H2 seat cowl now also! Wish they made one like the z400 seat cowl that fit our bike, looks good.

Ya, I tried the 400 cowl before I could get the ZH2 cowl. Shape was way off. I do like the sleek one piece look of the ZH2 better though. Which is funny, because as a whole the ZH2 looks pieced together and cluttered to me.

Good sh#t, bro! Thank you for posting this. Did you already post a link to the exact cowl you ordered? (Not sure if thats allowed or if I might have missed it if you did.)

I wonder how challenging it would be to wrap it to match the OEM satin black if my 21. Probably not that hard to get it close enough to pass, right?

I really like this a lot. Absolutely copying you 100%.

Thanks!  Heres the one I got.

There are less expensive ones that I would assume are the same but I got that one because it shipped from the US. Still took a couple weeks, but thats everything lately. Im not looking forward to wrapping it. I think itll be a pain for sure.

I have just received my Z H2 cowl from Aliexpress, but I have too much space in the rear part, and I don't have another cowl to take the plate from.

In the Youtube video you say you bent 2 parts... In which direction do they have to be bent exactly? Thanks!

Sorry, I missed this. I bent the center toward the plastic. Made it a little more of an arch. I bent the two outer tabs at the rear toward the plastic too. Hope that helps.
