Re: Swingarm chain rubber

Martin off this forum is looking at getting these re manufactured along with the brake line clips for the swing arm. Have a quick gander at the Facebook page for kr1s https://www.facebook.com/groups/kawasaki.kr1/?fref=nf&__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARAWNPwLblE_7FNx0dHx0C1aX4Fd_0aPQ0yOfsbc2iN6-GOuQIkjYaOBDfcch...

Re: Shrinking a 300 to a 250

Re: Not a KR, but......

Given the gap the second Suzuki opens up on each straight, I thought once passed it would retake him again. But apparently not. Great riding , thanks for posting

Re: Anyone have a KR250 for Sale?

A mate of mine has one for sale at a realistic price, but it's maybe too nice and original for what you want ? I'll point him over here. http://www.kr250.org/images/KR_stafford16a.jpg That looks really tidy, what sort of value are we talking about for KR’s . Last time I saw one this nice was in Jem...

Re: Urgent - RH exhaust / spannie needed for 1000 Bikes

I would google Metal fabricators close to where you live. Then pop the pipe in the car van bike, and pop around. It wont be long before you meet a sensible engineer or someone who can point you towards one. I did this for the cast iron fin repair on my vintage ped. Ended up at an Forge Ironworks. Gu...

Re: Pandora's box - Kr1s

The underseat tanks coupled with the fuel pump caused issues on the twins. Might not have affected the singles. In 2008 there was a recall for venting! Efficiency wise 70 mpg is reasonable, bit of a step change from the KR

Re: Pandora's box - Kr1s

Bikes looking really good. If its any consolation I get vapour lock on a 50cc Tekumseh lawnmower engine AND BMW had it as a problem on the early F650 / 800 twins ( one of my other bikes) Really noticeable when the tank is full when the vapour space is least.

Re: not rev'ing past7500

Do your kips vaves cycle when the ignition is switched on. Then do they open as the revs rise towards 7000rpm
