It'll look good, but you will probably have to wait to get it done proper.  Most places don't tint plastic, so you'll either have to wait for the aftermarket wind screens to come out, or tinker with paint to pull off the effect
Gear up for every ride, regardless of duration.  Zombies are cool, but I wouldn't want to look like one full time

If you want a smoky finish I'd wait.  But if you want to go all the way with a solid colour, at least one guy has already done it with Gloss black  Fushion spray paint (7 coats) and then a clear coat to finish it (4 coats).  THis spray paint was made to adhere to plastic so no need to sand down the surface.

Note: all paint is on the inside of the wind screen to protect from paint chipping, and so you keep the Kawasaki logo

I'm really liking the pattern on the white rim tape he added and the monster logo too :D
Heh heh, just noticed the ZX-3R decal, very nice

I think the white with black windshield will look great.
try photoshopping a pic to see before paying.

I painted a CBR125 windshield on the inside cuz there was no after market options.
I used typical automotive paint with no problems, but fusion paint is awsome.
But cannot look through it in full tuck position, tho it is a tiny screen.
I will wait for the OEM option or aftermarkets this time
(its a taller windshield than CBR125 that I will look through or camera mount behind it).

Nice work :).  Looks pretty sharp, but I'd still consider a clear coat to seal it on there.  Did you use the same brand of paint the other guy used?

No i actually used Krylon Indoor/Outdoor spray paint (what i had laying around), is the clear coat to keep it from chipping?

I did a Ninja 500 screen like that with whatever black spray I had on the shelf and it looked great and held up about the 2 years I owned it. Being on the inside really protects it.

Nice job, looks great!

Well considering it is on the inside of the windscreen, I's say there is little chance of it chipping.  But it couldn't hurt

We agree it looks better than OK, its awsome.
I am almost going to change to the white ninja clan after seeing the pics above.

True, I figured out through the years of veichle ownership that black paint is my blind choice.
But that white with black shield makes me feel tingley inside.
SIde note; a body shop will paint the body work whatever colour, if I 'had' to change it in the future.

Best is to take the bike to a few body shops and get some quotes.
Type of paint, quality of work, coats etc. factor the $$$.
