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

Over the last 3 years I have had fuel leaks on two of the start ups. 2017 and the Ethanol ate the fuel lines , so complete change. 2018 the small prime line to the lhs carb fell off. Great to se...

Re: I'm getting old

Jan 95% of people don't do 10% of your “ todays ride” in a day , I have only done a max of 80 km per day on my KR since 2012. So you humble us with a massive 500 km. How many of us UK riders do 350 miles in a day on our KR’s ? The bike must be running so well as everything will have been up to opera...

Re: Wanted barrels.

Martin are you on the dreaded facebuck , reason I ask is on 17 th March a guy called Cavan Soal was selling some really nice barrels. I also think there were some others earlier in the year but probably sold now.

Good luck with your search.
