Kr-1 brake reservoir screws

Post by pookie » Tue Feb 23, 2016 4:42 pm

Having nearly chewed the screws in my Kr-1 front brake reservoir (again) I have finally discovered that they have to be removed using a Japanese industry standard (jis) screwdriver (anybody else heard of them?) ordered one from Japan and it arrived last week, its even got an impact function to shift stubborn or damaged screws, after removal I would like to replace them with Allen screws, does anybody know the correct size for replacement? I think that they are countersunk as well from memory, be great to know the correct ones to get, I've noticed that on the Kr1-s Kawasaki changed the reservoir to a plastic one with an easy twist off cap.

Pookie,

I think I may have a couple of SS countersunk allen screws that may fit.
PM me your details and I will stick a couple in the post.

Cheers,
Bernie :)

Worth getting some JIS screwdrivers, they make such a difference.
