Just a quick correction on the front page:

This wiki is not affiliated by Zero Motorcycles at all. It is maintained by riders just like you.

Should read

Or affiliated to would work.  I hope you don't mind me pointing this out - it's just one of the first things new visitors will read.

funny, I thought I already fixed that. I must not have clicked save.
No problem. Point out stuff. Im working full time with a newborn at home, so my work so far could be described as sporadic and sleep-deprived at best.

What a great resource! 

Let's all read it and fix any issues and improve and expand it!

2014 Zero SR, highly accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1, maybe for sale, stock, very reliable.  I lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Also, a 2001 Honda Helix, black, kept for sentimental reasons.

Where's the information about using the Zero as an off-grid power storage? i.e. 12VDC output at 100A+ or the nominal battery pack voltage for conversion to 110/220VAC. I've only seen hints on the forum about a product available that makes this possible.

Someone knowledgeable about that will have to speak up about it, or you'll have to do the legwork to find out. :)

I've added some known lighting modifications and hard case options.

I've compiled a brake pad table which is probably correct but took a ton of sifting through forums and my own brake pad replacement receipts, AND a belt replacement procedure compiled from three forum threads and some very helpful comments and photos on a Facebook thread.

I'm still compiling information, since I have some free time for a little while these days. I only know so much, so mainly I'm trying to figure out reliable conclusions from forum threads and such, so coverage is definitely incomplete.

One request: Mediawiki's WYSIWYG editor support would probably encourage more people to contribute. The owner / site admin needs to enable it IIRC.

I'll go look into that right now.

Thanks! I am too, by profession, but a little usability for simple editing should go a long way.

agreed.
the VisualEditor extension looks like the way to go with this. Im uploading it now, but the Parsoid service is a prerequisite. That install is a little more involved, so I may have to wait until I get home before I can set it up.

That is far better than the basic RTF support I'd seen before. Good luck with the install/config!

It's incomplete but it is improving rapidly.  This should rapidly become the master repository of knowledge and summary of the conclusions of these forum threads.
