Advertising and Product Information

Board members can, of course, post information about products in the course of regular board activity. However, to prevent the message board from being overrun by advertising, people who want to advertise must email requests to a board administrator. (Advertisers are defined as persons whose posts contain information about a company, product or service that they represent, or who receive financial benefit for posting product information.)

Advertising requests will be considered by the board administration, and the advertisor will be notified of the result via email.

Advertising posted without approval is considered spam (see below). Individuals making such posts will be asked to submit an advertising request. Their post will be removed until a request is recieved and reviewed by board administration. If approved, the person will be notified.


Spam is unsolicited commercial posts, and we don't like spam (not even spam and eggs). FZ1 Owners Association (FZ1OA) administrators and moderators reserve the right to modify or delete posts deemed to be spam.

Membership Information

The FZ1OA administration will not share or sell personal member information or membership lists. We recommend that you do not include personal information in any post, as posts become public information.

Damage or Personal Injury

Damage done to yourself or your motorcycle as a result of information or advice on this board is not the responsibility of the board or its administrators and moderators. Use information and advice at your own risk.

Remember that site administrators and moderators are not responsible for posted messages. We don't vouch for the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. (Besides, we're just a bunch of Joe's who have nothing better to do than spend our time managing this site.)

Views expressed on the board are the author's, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the board. If you feel that a post is objectionable, we encourage you to contact an administrator immediately by email (Email addresses of all administrators and moderators can be found at the bottom of the main page). We will remove objectionable messages as soon as we can, if we determine that removal is necessary.

The FZ1OA will Not be Responsible for deals that fall through here. Make sure you get all the information you need before you make the deal! And if the deal falls through, please do not email the Admins about the problems...But please do post a note about the problems so others can learn from your misfortune.

We also recommend that you check the Hero's and Zero's Forum here before you send anyone your money.

Ride Safe and have fun!
