1. Guest,
    We need good tech writers that are willing to help out here at ZL-OA. If you like taking photos of jobs as you perform the steps on your repairs, have historical ads/documents from old magazines, or any else you think belongs in the Technical Library than you might be able to help. Send a private message to Furchin, Mudrunner88, Chris, Jarney, Wuputt, or Markus56 and we can lead you in the right direction to get started.

    ZL-OA will soon be given a new look! Stay tuned to this thread and as the new site develops I can answer any questions you may have.

    For various reasons, we have decided to switch software as well. The new software will bring a much needed new look to the website and will allow better use of mobile, and tablets as well.

    The layout will look different, but the software is very similar as far as posting and replying etc. There will be some fun new features that I add as well.

    You the user don't have to do anything at this point. Your account will be imported to the new software along with all your posts, private messages, photos, etc. All you have to do is wait impatiently for a day in the near future for us to unveil it.

    Look forward to seeing you all over there once it opens, and I hope this brings interest back into the site and we see more traffic.

    Talk to you all soon, I'm going to hide behind my keyboard and make the magic happen now!

    Thanks, it's good to see everybody. Don't worry, nobody will be removed as long as have posts.

    Maintenance and cleanup will start today, with a little bit of database work.
    The site might go down for 1/2hr some time today during the D.B. work.

    I want to thank everybody for their patience if you tried to visit this site this morning/afternoon and it was down for a bit.

    We have successfully merged the KERA Archives into our existing forums. You can find the KERA section towards the bottom page of the forums.
    This is an archive section, so you can search, and read, but you can not post or reply here.

    If you have a question in relation to something in there, you can always start a new thread in the appropriate forum and post a hyperlink to KERA so people can review it.

    Our next step will be to upload and start configuring our new software. The changes won't go live until we are done.

    Stay tuned!:thumbsup:

    Looking Forward toward It! I hope we don't loose any of the old posting data from the ZL Masters:notworthy: I still have my ZL1000 with 2,500 original miles on her, Carbs have been cleaned, And I hope to have them back on this summer! After I finish remodeling this old house!! Jaa

    Nice! Nope, we aren't at risk for losing anything. I have already performed a trial run and it went flawless. I know how feel, I bought my house a few years ago now and the projects are endless. Especially outdoors for me, but this time of the year I'm stuck inside mostly due to New England weather.

    Hi all from Scotland :)
    Same here.. not much time to do much of anything these days.. family/work.

    Good news about the site, always a good information resource for most bike problems,
    thanks go to all members for keeping this available.

    I still have my '86 ZL600, havent ridden much last 2 years , osteoporosis and hip problems, but the occasional fishing trip inland blows away the cobwebs :)
    Happy Belated New Year Ride Safe :headbang:

    I still have my eliminator. It's still hibernating due to a no crank issue I couldn't figure out after some disassembly but I have recently gotten my old kz/ltd 1000 up and running so the eliminator is next. I want to stay part of the forum. I hope to feature it on my Instagram page, same username, as i get it running and finish the modifications i was up to when the project had to be put away. The audience should appreciate it. It's not stock and reasonably unusual so it should be a hit and only help our fledgling brand. Thx :headbang:
