In Japan the R was the Kawasaki race team preferred bike instead of the S - if it had been officially imported in enough numbers into the UK ..who knows

These results look pretty good to me.. Not a h***a in sight :)

I am biased of course :)
:D

As h***a didnt join with the UK domestic scene with a road going 2T, I dont suppose they would feature in any results.

I cant find any mention of a KR1R or S in the Japanese championships during the late 80s/early 90s...plenty of h***a's and Yams thou. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Having had a few 80s h***a and 80s Kawasakis I can confidently say with no bias at all that the Kawaskis of that era could have learnt a lesson or two from h***a manufacturing, fit and finish.

Those results were for the kr-1 in british supersport in 1989, i watched a few of those races, ian mc connachie was on a privateer bike which pissed off the official 'team green' kr-1, here is a crap quality pic i took of john reynolds at brands hatch that year, my brand new kr-1 was parked at druids hairpin :) Image

Do you still want the parts I have set aside for you? I didn't hear anything from you after my PM of 29 November and a further PM from 2 January is still sitting in my outbox. Please let me know!

Thanks & regards,

No further info yet Shaun. I think SmithyKR1R (Simon) is also a member of another forum (of which you and I are both members :wink: ), so I have sent a PM via that forum too.
