Still getting used to the KR1s, It's great to hear the KR1s overtaking on full throttle - what a sound! TDR was worked hard to (Try to) keep up. Great fun swapping between bikes :P

Re: Hybrid project

For someone that claims not to like filing, you are doing an awful lot of it :lol:

Keep up the good work, it's nice to see a performance build - and the differences in assemblies between manufacturers.

Re: Frame decals - E1 by headstock

Hi Steve, I saw you post ages ago, and thought of it when I found this looking for something else :P Copied from another forum. The E code is a stamp on components that indicate they can be legally be fitted into a certain European country. Here's a list: http://www.belemc.com/en/page/Default.asp?pa...

Glad you are OK,

Must be all the practice that you are getting good at crashing.

Good to see the bike being used and you will have it fixed up in no time 8)
