Re: KR1S Project

Well had a bit of time today and weather not too bad so had a look at these calipers Once again there was a set of pistons in each caliper not pushing out enough (pads loose enough to move on pins). Kept the opposing pistons locked in place (used a suitable sized allen key between caliper and pad) a...

Re: KR1S Project

Well getting nowhere with bleeding and sick of the mess - so had a closer look at what was (or wasn't) happening at the calipers With the anti rattle covers off i could see each caliper had 2 pistons in one half which were some way off making contact with the discs until the lever was fully applied ...

Re: KR1S Project

Finished for this year. Just need to fit indicators and chain guard. Was going to take it for a run up the road but brakes are proving a pain to get pressure so just went up the drive and back. If anyone has any (non-messy) suggestions for bleeding them without getting the calipers covered in fluid ...

Re: pick up exciter coil

Bit of a long shot but you haven't got the horn connections mixed up with the coil connections have you. As i recall they are both similar fixings (2 push on connectors) and located in the same area on the bike KIPS motor not turning could be just down to over-tight cables I would also re-check the ...

Re: PWK ENGINE IDLE

I have only ever run on premix when starting up an engine where the oil lines are empty so can't really comment I don't think there is such a thing as truly smokeless - just how clean they burn Just starting bikes in your garage or shed makes the problem worse as you tend to get a build up of unburn...

Re: PWK ENGINE IDLE

That reference to the o ring in the manual is misleading - doesn't have one as you say

And yes bending over one of these for several hours while working on them gives me back trouble :P

Re: Help, won't start

I am not very good with electrics but could it be one of the following

Faulty Ignition Switch
Broken wire in the loom
Blown Fuse (not sure if this would interfere with starting)
Connector blocks not making good contact

Might not be any help so good luck :P

Re: DIY programmable ignition

Re: KR1S Project

Rest is just easy stuff. Has turned out how i wanted, perhaps i can get...

Re: KR1S Project
