In order to sort out the spammers from the real folks it is highly suggested that you register with a user name unlikely to be interpreted as a spammer's nonsensical computer-generated or otherwise implausible name.
Immediately after you register, please provide some personal information in your "profile" (see below), which may also include a signature line and/or an avatar, so that we Mods can be sure that you're truly here because of your genuine interest in KZ's.
If a legitimate new member is removed from the forum, it probably results from a preemptive ban based on a suspicious name, in which event the subject user is encouraged to send a Private Message to either KZQ or Patton to confirm that you are a real person and are here as a result of your interest in motorcycles. Absent such Private Message, the ban from forum will be continued or elevated to removal from the site.
If a legitimate new member is summarily removed from the site, it probably results from a preemptive ban based on a highly suspicious name, in which event the subject user is encouraged to please re-register under a different name.
Thanks to all for your understanding and helping to reduce spam.

...sorry...a little technically challenged here.
For the benefit of new members, let's start at the beginning about signature boxes.
Because including information about bike year and model usually elicits better responses.
And it's easy to put the information in your signature where it will automatically appear in posted messages.
When done, the signature information appears in all posts, past and future.
And may be changed as often as desired.
Here's the usual method of adding signature information:
Now let's say you desire to include a clickable link in your signature, such as the Z1 link and 900 LTD link in my signature, which links appear in blue color.
To do that, here's what shows inside my signature box:
The links were copied and pasted in, and then modified to show only the abbreviated custom names.
Note that the 1st complete link path has been renamed "Z1," and that the 2nd complete link path has been renamed "900 LTD," by insertion within the link immediately before the closing "/url" bracket.
Further note that "GB500" isn't a link.
If a forum search is done for "Kaws little buddy,"
the thread about my GB500 will appear. A 3rd direct link to the GB500 thread isn't provided because there wasn't quite enough space inside the signature box to allow for it.
Update -- Additional space now allows a direct link to the GB500 thread, same as the Z1 and 900LTD threads.

I picked up my first bike a little over a year ago with big plans to learn how to work on it and get it geared out for touring. Well, life happened and I did almost nothing with or to the bike in that time.

It's time. I picked up a Clymer's Guide and a handful of tools and it's time to get this baby back to fighting form.
Any suggestions where to start would be appreciated as the extensive maintenance schedule in the guide is giving me vertigo. Will keep poking through the forums and will keep y'all updated.

Howdy all, new to the site. I am looking forward to reading all the good stuff on here. I just bought a 81 KZ 1000. It’s going to go through some changes this winter. I will update as the process takes place. Thanks everyone.
