Re: Un cut rear mudguard £200

It didn't sell at that price, same as the one owner Kr-1 just like mine that was listed for £7500, you can ask what you want but whether there's a buyer out there is a different matter.

Re: I'm getting old

My KR-1 does less than 350 miles a year! but when the conditions are right I can't think of anything that is as fun to own and ride as a 250cc two stroke, I never have to visit the doctors 'cos the Kr-1 is the best therapy in the world, sadly the day will come when I can no longer get my leg over (o...

Re: who is interested in a CNC head with inserts ?

Sub-contracting is ruining the trust between a customer and vendor, companies should state up front that they might have to sub-contract, then give you the chance to walk away.

Re: Kr1 b1/b2. rear wheel spindle clip

My Kr-1 has had the rear spindle clip on it since I bought it 28 years ago, don't think it's an mot advisory though as my other bike, a Suzuki 250 Katana has never had a clip, r clip or split pin in it since I bought it 5 years ago and always passes it's mot.

Re: Liqui Moly 2T

I've owned my Kr-1 from new and it's only covered 15000 miles (in fact it passed 15000 miles the last time I used it) it hasn't been used since November last year (because of work and crap weather) but it has just started on the third kick which I think is amazing, It covered just 400 miles last yea...

Re: Liqui Moly 2T

I've always believed in using the same oil that was around when the bike was manufactured, my Kr-1 has run on rock oil power plus 2 (semi synthetic) for over 28 years now with no problems, only thing is that each time I have to buy a new bottle the price has doubled since the last time :shock:

Re: KR-1R in the states for sale!!!!!

Don't know if anybody has noticed but none of these American Kr-1R's have the beading around the screen, so you'll have to add £80 to the cost to get a genuine Kawasaki one in a genuine Kawasaki bag :lol:

Re: Cost of KR1 ownership

I'm a Raleigh Grifter fan myself, five years ago I bought a mint 1976 steel blue mk1, same as I had on my 12th birthday, for what I thought at the time was steep at £150 (had to have it though) if I wanted to sell it tomorrow I could get north of £400 for it, better than any ISA or savings bond 8)

Re: Stafford Oct 17 Nice KR1

Looks like a resto, powder coated wheels, aftermarket discs, very shiny mirrors (never seen that before) and wrong fairing fixings, I know, I could pick a fault with the Mona Lisa (that smiles a bit odd) :lol:

Re: MCN

Yeah, that kr/ar 50 is very nice, there's a feature on a Suzuki Katana resto as well, as I own one of them it made up for the kr1r omission.

Re: MCN

Just got this months (November) practical sportsbikes, it's wrapped in cellophane with a copy of mcn so you can't have a quick flick through before you buy, there's no Kr-1r feature, but in the 'next month' section there's 'Kr-1r resto' mentioned, wonder how many more months will pass until the feat...
