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

I like the way you always try to do things yourself Jan

Way above my head but a great idea

Re: KR1S Project

Just never got around to removing it Steve Well essentially it's done now - big sigh of relief Still needs chain and sprockets, rear brake line and pads, pads for the front and fairing paint needs more wet and dry and polishing. Rest is just easy stuff. Has turned out how i wanted, perhaps i can get...

Re: KR1S Project

Feel like i can finally start to see the finish at last :P Some bodywork now in place Need to make some frame brackets and can then get the fairing mounted - will be glad to get it fitted as i keep kicking/knocking it by accident It starts first or second kick now and ticks over nicely which gives m...

Re: KR1S Project

Yes can't fault it Steve. Managed to spill a small bit on a washer on the fairing - can't get it off now !

Loads left

Careful with your fingers though

Re: KR1S Shock Dimension Required for Nitron Build

Not sure if anyone has replied Rick

The shocks are interchangeable (Hagon list the same shock for both models for further confirmation)

I have measured one i have and visible hose is 435mm (as near as i can measure) between the end fittings

Re: KR1S Project

Been doing a bit of paint to the bodywork - long way to go yet. Dream Machine needn't panic :P

Cleaning the inside of the bellypan was a nice job

Re: KR1S Project

Thanks for your thoughts Jan - good suggestions. Cant be bothered to redo it all though - once was enough :lol: Joints seem as strong as the original fairing - the filler in Supafix helps strengthen the repair and a more irregular join or crack lets you pour it in better. I also stuck small pieces o...
