1979 Z650-B3[edit]The only difference over the B2 model was a change of graphics. Sales once again picked up. The new lower case tank badges were also used. The frame covers were revised to eliminate the recessed badges so that the outer surface of the cover was now totally flat. The B3 now got the same type of rubber mounted front footrests that were originally introduced on the D1/D1A to combat vibration.

One mechanical change on this and subsequent models was the introduction of an "automatic" cam chain tensioner and associated bits. Until this time, he cam chain tensioner had been a manual type requiring attention from the owner on a regular basis. This first attempt at an automatic tensioner, owever, as a dismal failure and was eventually changed out for the Mark II version (automatic cross wedge type) on the 1981 models. The Mark II design was somewhat better but still not a proper solution.

As well, he US-only models got an air injection system for emissions reduction. This system was dubbed by the factory as the "Kawasaki Clean Air System". These variants are immediately recognizable by the two reed-valve housings and associated plumbing on top of the valve cover on the forward (exhaust) side of the engine. There is also an air diverter valve assembly (with associated hoses) bolted to the main frame tube just under the gas tank. The US-only models kept this same setup through to the end of production with the 1983 model year.
