A buddy of mine did it and swore it was a great combination although he bought they universal version. I hope I can get the adapter separately...

There you go! I just found out today. The part number is 77890-15340 from Shindaiwa. The price locally is $4.42

Note: Your Kawasaki unit takes a 8mm LH thread female adapter same as mine. If you google "Speedfeed adaptor", you should find the chart. I posted a similiar question in the Shindaiwa forum.

Also, I've been told if you're buying a new SpeedFeed head, get the universal version of the 450 head. It should come with the adaptor you're needing....
