Re: Has anyone done a tour on thier Kr1s?

Hello again! I wasn't implying it was a unique thing to ride a motorbike! It was really just a bit of light conversation to be honest! I averaged 60mpg on the road, 20mpg at the track, and used about a litre and a third of oil, which was silkolene comp2plus. But I've been informed silkolene have cha...

Re: 11/12 July: PS trackday & Classic Bike BurnUp @ Cadwell

Your bike was pretty fast Douglas!
I spoke to Griff and he said your forks were pretty good for adjustments!
I'm putting heavier oil in an and that's as far as I can go it seems!
Amazing weekend, a real assault on the senses as far as amazing bikes go too!

Re: Has anyone done a tour on thier Kr1s?

Good evening gents and ladies! The tour on the kr1s went well!! She never missed a beat! I did just under 1200 miles in a week, including two track days at cadwell. My rear shock was under damped but with some help I got it feeling a lot better!! I used the same plugs the whole trip, and mixed super...

Re: how long to chance pistons lasting

I've been using mine twice a week to go to work on, its 30 miles, there and back, it gets a semi gentle warm up, then a bit of a caning, an excellent set of bends, and a throttle stop run. I was paranoid, but I've realised what's the point, its not a desmosedici, and I'm driving it to cadwell in Jul...

Re: front preload

Ha!
I'm probably in the semi slouch bracket!
I have 5mm of stanchion and whatever thickness of endcap, maybe 8 mm, it's very stable, never had a head shake?
Still quick to turn, miles better as a 2003 z1000!!

Re: front preload

I have a hagon shock,new last year, and the forks dropped 5mm in the yokes, with not too much preload, I weigh 12 stone though.
The front feels very very good, a bit soft on hard braking but well damped.
I would beg borrow a shock!!
I bet it helps.!

Ignition barrel with keys.

Okay everyone!! A bit of a bizarre request. I got mildly done over on eBay with some power valves, They are not what i expected. So does any one want to swap 4 power valves only suitable for a track bike or rubbish spares for an ignition barrel with two keys. I also have two good condition red rear ...

Re: Mixing tyres

So I see!!
It 220 or 240 to my door in Shetland for the bridge stones I think.
Can't be certain as I bought a lot of tyres last year!!

If the Dunlop's good and the kr1s is behaving well then I still might try them out!

Re: Mixing tyres

I also feel that a good tyre and keeping similar rubber compounds and profiles is a good idea.
It depends on how you ride as well.
I do like that BT 090 but I see Dunlop have the alpha 13 in the UK now which I may try later this year.
