KR-09

Post by Luders » Thu Jan 10, 2019 12:45 pm

Bernie asked me the other day for a couple of pics of this bike, but given we are trying to attract traffic back to the forum and away from FB, I thought I would post them here instead.

Yes it's an RGV VJ22 rear wheel in that with ZXR400 front end. Calipers were of a busa if I remember correctly, but they were way too heavy and were replaced by fireblade calipers if I recall.

I still have this bike, but haven't ridden it since October 2012 believe it or not.

If you want something like that in the garage, podman, why don't you build one? :)

Ben, can I ask how the RS250 fairing fits over the pipes, and are they Lomas? I want a lower fairing for my KR-1 and it looks like the Burning Blood fairing lower wouldn't fit without a lot of butchering, and to be honest I can't decide if it's too angular.

Since there's currently no camping at circuits I'm thinking that I might spend the money sorting the last few bits on my bike this year (fairing, paint, ignition, clocks, dyno time) instead, and since the rear tyre is ancient it makes sense to destroy it on a dyno rather than a new one. 8)
