It is like having twenty other mechanics help you with your problems. Tech articles on the ZG1400 C14 appear almost every issue of The Concourier magazine.

Online versions of the club's collection of technical article publications "Best of Chalkdust" for the Concours ZG1000 (C10), and "Chalkdust 2," for the Concours ZG1400 (C14) are available in the member exclusive library.
