Any electrical checks that you can do are shown in the manual

Re: Do KR1S wheels fit In KR1 ?

If you have the correct fork bottoms and calipers it can be done (yokes are interchangeable between models) You will also need the spindle, speedo drive (different spindle diameter) and spacer (again due to different spindle size), also different discs Rear goes straight in - but you will need the c...

If its for your hybrid not sure how you will determine chain length (unless you are using the same set up as on your first one)

However does it not operate the powervalve motor ?

I can only tell you all my bikes and electrics always work better with a decent battery

Re: not rev'ing past7500

Do you ride with your lights on I have always found the lights on these bikes tend to drain the battery down (i don't think the charging circuit is very powerful - personal experience but i may be wrong) If your battery is not very good you may not be getting enough power to operate the power valve ...

Re: New Forks Or Re Chrome Old Ones

Re: Plated Barrels

Looks like they still do sleeves

Not for the purist may be - but i doubt many of these bikes get ridden any more - and on the road you can't tell the difference

Re: Kr1 b1/b2 Rear wheel clip

Excuse the state of the nut and adjuster :P - this bike is due for an overhaul later this year.

Re: Front fork length.

You can mix and match the stanchions and lowers and internals no problem. The spring lengths are slightly different as i recall - but not enough to worry about I think S lowers are slightly shorter - i always think the KR1 looks a bit higher at the front than the S (could just be me) Will measure KR...
