Re: Stafford Show Saturday

There was a standard KR1S on the local VJMC stand, and a modified one on the UK 2 Strokes stand. No tandem-twin, I didn't need to lob mine in the van as a last-minute filler this year. :lol: I need stronger glasses, I thought I had scoured all the halls. Often The two stroke clubs often have a KR a...

Re: Tuesday Night Regular Meeting at the Pitstop Cafe Stockton on Tees

Your right about high beam, the guy who fitted mine runs a business called HID50 and knows his stuff. For ages he didn’t recommend high beams , but then they brought out fast start, that do just that. Other point on HIDs on BM’s is they need to be canbus compatible otherwise you get a bulb error.

Re: Tuesday Night Regular Meeting at the Pitstop Cafe Stockton on Tees

Bernie I had HID main fitted to my GS650. The light output in terms of colour and spread was stunning. Coming home on 2:10 at night was like daylight. Only issue, complex wiring as the bulb arcs at something like 15’000 volts then warms up slowly to full power. Maybe thats why in the 2018 update of ...

Re: Is it me ?

FB is very good at self promotion. The wave of 2T nostalgia is pointing them all at FB rather than the more informative forums. The unwary are also drawn in on eBay and are buying stuff that is being advertised by the inevitable chancers. People will get bitten and hopefully the newer owners will f...

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...
