By registering at the KZrider.com community, you agree to the following terms. KZrider.com reserves the right to remove any posting it finds unsuitable. Members who refuse to play by the following rules will be excluded from the discussion board.

PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISING IS STRICTLY LIMITED
KZrider is more than a website. Its members comprise a community of KZ enthusiasts dedicated to encouraging and preserving our sport and passion for Kawasaki Z, Z1 and KZ motorcycles. We pursue our passion because we enjoy it, not to make money from it. To that end KZrider.com is not a place for you to solicit sales of any kind. No member is allowed to refer to their own business, or any business to which he/she is associated, through the discussion forum or personal messaging system (U2U). Be aware, the U2U feature has been abused in the past. If any member solicits an unwelcomed solicitation through the U2U system please report that solicitation to the Administrator or Moderators promptly.

There are four exceptions to this policy:
1. As permitted in Classifieds (consumer-to-consumer transactions).
2. An item may be offered for sale as a consumer-to-consumer transaction in any forum where there exists reasonable expectation of being welcomed by another member who has previously posted in the thread ("cold calls" and "door-to-door" solicitations are prohibited).
3. Each member is allowed a simple link (somesite.com) in their signature, which link shall include no description of any kind.
4. Paying advertisers are allowed to post in the Vendor forum.

KEEP IT CLEAN
You may not post libelous or defamatory messages or materials, or include links to such materials in your postings. You may not post messages that are obscene, violent, abusive or designed to harass or intimidate another individual. Pornography, Warez, or any other illegal transactions may not be posted or included in members profiles. No blatant nudity.

BE CIVILIZED
Don't use racial, ethnic, or gender slurs, religiously derogatory comments or any other personal discriminations even in jest. Use of slurs needlessly offends people - whether or not they're a member of the group you've insulted. Respect others' religious beliefs and culture. Recognize that others have religious and personal beliefs which may differ from yours. Stay away from political debates. Keep the language and behaviour appropriate.

USE DESCRIPTIVE THREAD TITLES
When you post a new thread, please give users some idea of what it contains in the title. Thread titles like "Help" or "Check this out!" are cheap ways of getting users to look at a thread they might not care about, and would not have clicked on had the full title "Help, I need credit card numbers!" been used. Furthermore, it helps stop multiple threads on the same subject. When starting a new thread, describe the content of your thread clearly in the 'Subject' line of your post. Don't use vague subjects. Use descriptive and specific subject lines. This helps others decide whether your particular words of wisdom relate to a topic they care about. For example: "HELP!!" is not an appropriate subject and neither is "My bike doesn't run".

PLEASE DON'T SHOUT!
That cap lock key wasn't invented to help you get your message across. Messages written in all caps are annoying, hard to read, and loud.

HAS IT BEEN POSTED ALREADY?
Please look for an existing thread on a subject before you post one about it. Chances are good that your question has already been answered. There is a search feature on these forums, use it. Starting topics that have already been answered in great detail is a waste of everyone's time. Look to see if information you're about to post has just been posted by someone else. Then go ahead and post.

WE HAVE SECTIONS FOR A REASON
The Technical Forums have different sections for a reason. If you're not sure, use your best judgment. 

DON'T CROSS-POST
Cross-posting is when you post the same message multiple times in various threads or forums. We only need to see it once guys. 

STAY ON TOPIC
Keep threads on topic. If you've got something completely unrelated to say then start a new thread. Unresponsive solicitations for consumer-to-consumer sale are prohibited as being unrelated and off topic, but solicitations for consumer-to-consumer sale may be posted in Classifieds.

CONSIDER THE IMPACT OF YOUR WORDS BEFORE POSTING
Adhere to the same high standards (or higher) of behaviour online that you follow in real life. In real life, most people are fairly polite and law abiding. The same rules of behaviour are expected on any list.

MESSAGES SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE TOPIC BEING DISCUSSED
or introduce a relevant idea. If you've read enough threads, you've already learned how annoying it is to go through "Me Too" posts. A "Me Too" is a post that says "I agree with what the other guy said" and otherwise does not add to the content. If you have a comment about someone else's post, tell them via U2U or email. Generally speaking, unless it concerns the entire group and is within the group's stated purpose, you should reply only to the author. Avoid replies or responses to the whole list of yes, no, or "I agree!". This is meaningless and you too would be annoyed to open such a message.

WELCOME TO KZRIDER
If you are a new member, introduce yourself by posting to the New Member Forum. While it's nice to welcome a new member, only do so if they have posted in the New Members forum. There is no need for 50 welcome posts in a technical forum thread.

U2U IS A WONDERFUL FEATURE
Please don't start a topic that is directed at one person that could be put into a U2U to them. If you have a message for one or two posters, use U2U or email.

PICTURE PERFECT
Images & attachments may be posted as long as they are not explicive or offensive. Images are limited in size to 2mb. The Project Forum is for members' rides only and is an ideal place to document your rebuild.

FLAME-WARS
Don't even start them, they will be ended, quickly, and you'll find yourself on the short bus. Flaming: Personal attacks in cyberspace can be particularly vicious. Flaming is the rather nasty art of attacking others on a personal level.

Hello all, my name is tom< I have been reading for a few days, and it seems that you have a great site here. About me: I love motorcycles to no end(could care less about brand), I will have fun on a broken down old harley that cant spin more than 2500 rpm just the same as I will screaming through the night on my gsxr. My 76 kz900a was my first and favorite bike. My father bought it new back in 76, racked up about 18,000 miles. then by the time me and(oddly enough) his friends talked him into letting me ride it, I was 16 (1999) and it was in need of a restoration. We did a minor resto and got her back on the road(thank god for that yamaha carb cleaner). which reminds me, thank god for the way the internet has blossomed. I remember it being a big ordeal trying to find a regulator/rectifier unit back then. at any rate my old kaw has been sitting for the better part of a decade and I decided to put her back on the road. I want a nice comfortable bike to take the squaw(my lovely wife) out for nice long rides on. I think it would be nice for her to have the chance to fall in love with motorcycles the same way I did (without a clue or a map). I dont have many picture available at the moment, but I will see if the site lets this you tube link fly, if not search "it lives" by tomolu5.

By the way, I pulled the head back off, so the lives part is delayed. I do have a few project pics that I will have to upload for you guys
Mine:
04 Honda rebel 250(wifes)
04 GSXR 750(bolt on galore)
98 CBR 600F3(filter, pipe, adjustable cam sprokets, dyno tune)
76 KZ900A (LTD gauge pods, crash bars, LTD(style)pipes, dyna coils and ignition,headwork and mild port cleanup by cavanaugh racing, K&N filter pods, heck I dunno.

Welcome to z-jungle! B)
As long as the heads off you might as well pull the cylinder and oil pan to check everything else out. :)
