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.

Sure thing... It will be raining on Sunday here, so that will give me some time to dive into it. I have already drawn up a wiring ID chart, and I must say its going to be pretty freaking simplistic.

No fuses, no relays, one wire tail light. Keeping, stator and reg/rect and thats it. At least that's how is suppose to work. :) OO and no key!

OK, here is my basic wiring layout. Gonna get started on this tomorrow, so I welcome any input form the wiring gods.

The left/right controls will both be handled with a single multiple conductor cable, more then likely 6, but maybe 9 to leave me some room to use the other buttons if I need them. That lap button would be a great nitro button.. lol

OK, just a quick update on the build. This will probably by my last update for a week or so, as we are leaving Wed for the Gator Nationals.. :evil: Won't be back till Monday.

So I finished up the battery and components box and mocked everything up (reg/rect, battery, starter relay, M-Unit, M-Lock, and a spot for my custom igniter. I used all my old components for mock up purposes and will be replacing later. Now I just need to pull the box apart and paint it before I start running the wiring permanently.

A quick note on the M-Unit and its mounting arrangement. I originally planned on mounting it on its own tray horizontally across the top of the battery box facing up. However, the unit has a built in alarm w/tilt sensor and for that to work it has to be mounted vertically like you see it now. How effective it is has yet to be seen, but figured if it has it I will try and use it.

Also, you may have notice above that I added back in the starter relay. The M-Unit starter relay is rated at 40A and recommends using the factory relay for some motorcycles with larger draw. So I figured I would use it to make sure I didn't have an issue.

Lastly, that the M-Lock is mounted at the bottom of the tray in front of the M-Unit. You can see it in the first pick. It will sit behind the side cover and be completly hidden from view. A quick pass of the FOB should fire her up. (in theory) We shall see. .

Thanks..

OK I lied.. lol

I got these in the mail yesturday, sooner then i thought and as I had a difficult timing tracking them down I thought I would post the info in case anyone else doing a build or adding rear sets needs them.

These are Metric (M-6) Hex Bar Turnbuckles. They come in various sizes and are like 5 bucks a piece. I got them from Midwest Control Products. Fit, finish, and function is prefect.

As said by many others, your bike looks awesome!! I don't know if I missed it but would you include some info on how you prepped and painted your motor which also looks the business!!!.

Great work,

Hey Jack, damn nice bike. We are both doing the same mechanical type of work on nearly the

same bikes but in totally different ways. Nice to see a different perspective on things. Your

work is much cleaner by the way. I don't know how I missed your build up to this point. Great job

taking this KZ into the 21st century. Id say I cant wait to see her done but I don't want to spoil

your fun. Cant wait to see the crotch rocket kids walk by this one and say "What Tha" and you will

have to wipe drool off it.

Would really like to know more about your wiring project for I have a J model engine and Moto Martin rolling chassis that will need all the electrical and a bit stumped on getting that started. I finally got my donor motor but need to get the electrical side of things worked out before going any further.

Blue.. thanks for the kind words.

Media blast, high temp engine paint and bake! The covers are just media blasted at this point, while I toy with the idea of polishing them. But they may end up painted as well.. lol
