Re: Mixing tyres

I'm using a bridge stone mix,
An 090 on the rear and a bt016 on the front.
It feels very very good.
I had trouble getting a front and I use the 016 and the s20s so just went for it.

Re: 0-100mph times

Haha!! Fantastic post! I have had quite a few similar experiences! A fiesta going rather fast was overtaken by the kr1s and myself last year on a wonderful bend, which lead on to some straights. The little car kept up well with me till the next set of sweepers!! I met him later on and he asked why I...

Re: Alll but finished

Patience is required!
Use your fingertips (ooh I say!) Not a plastic spreader, and a firm sponge and go millimeters at a time!
Its slow but it works!

Cheers Martin.

Re: Alll but finished

The number boards are a pain in the arse.
They go on easier dry, but you need to be careful and let the vinyl stretch and follow the shape of the panel.
Next ones I'm painting on!!

Re: Has anyone done a tour on thier Kr1s?

Fantastic Bernie! Its quite a while away so a loom clean, possible stator and rec renewal, and perhaps a lithium battery,and bdk linkage. I think that covers a few possibilities. As for the stator removal, I was quite surprised how easy they can be!! Its a good drive, we may break it up Into three d...

Re: Has anyone done a tour on thier Kr1s?

Aha! Good advice! I will probably be doing it sat nav free as Im sure I still have a brain in the old head! But numbers and addresses may not be a bad idea! The stator is just an old replacement, will an electrex world one be any less reliable given the age of the loom? My pal is taking his ducati 8...

Re: Has anyone done a tour on thier Kr1s?

I have a rear seat bag I use on my other bikes and was going to p!ace bare essential tools and plugs under the seat, Prob need to take some oil if its ...

Re: Left hand misfire

Never underestimate the importance of a battery being able to produce in conjunction with the generator the required voltage. A battery can be charged but not produce enough current. I had many gremlins over the battery. I'm no mechanic though! A fully charged batt giving g 12volts is always a good ...

Thanks Bertie!

Just a thanks to everyone who keeps helping me with parts!
Cheers Andrew for the last parts!
It was a duff stator that caused the breakdown!
Are kr1 and 1s stators different?
I have three, and one has different numbers stamped into it.
The bikes back singing again.!

Also my good man!
Would you have a 17inch rear wheel suitable for the kr?
I'm getting a touch of the tinkering habit!
