Front master cylinder

Post by nikfubar » Sat Feb 08, 2014 1:55 am

Could someone please tell me the bore size of the KR1s master cylinder as I'm fitting a KR1s front & rear end to my KH hybrid & need to get the correct size master, I have a 5/8" one, hope that's the right size.
Thanks

Hi Nic,
No idea as I have not seen mine for a couple of years :(
But I would love to see some photos of your hybrid [-o<
I would like to see a KR1-S with a kawasaki triple motor in it, nothing sounds like a kawasaki triple :)

Hi Bernie
It's not quite like that :D it's a KH350 with KR1s running gear, here's the mock up for making the pipes

Here's how far I've got with putting the finished article together.

All Kawa's that use those calipers have a 5/8 master cylinder.
You know it's cold outside when you trip over dog shit instead of standing in it.

Looking nice Nic,
But you need one of these on the back...

Have you mounted the shocker fixing the same way Cabbie did on his KH400 ?

Thanks for confirming cylinder size :mrgreen:
Don't know how Cabbie mounted his shock but this is how I did mine.
