the manufacture did it as they should know best.
The manufacturer who binned the tandem-twin after a couple of years and reverted to a much simpler parallel-twin design... :mrgreen: :lol:

Re: Anyone have a KR250 for Sale?

That looks really tidy, what sort of value are we talking about for KR’s . Last time I saw one this nice was in Jems at £4.5? Steve I've lost track of what he wants for this one to be honest. I know it was a bit cheaper than those that've appeared on Ebay, and is also a better bike too. What are KR...

Re: Anyone have a KR250 for Sale?

A mate of mine has one for sale at a realistic price, but it's maybe too nice and original for what you want ? I'll point him over here.

Re: Kr 250 A Blowing smoke using gear box oil quick

Sorry, I'm a bit late to this, but here's my 2p worth... I've always been sceptical as to the need to replace crank seals on a two-stroke that's been left standing. I've rescued quite a few neglected bikes over the years and always managed to get them running fine without doing it. However, if I kne...

Any ideas where my old KR is these days, as you seem to keep tabs on where they all are?
Sorry Gary, I've lost track. :oops:

Re: Donington Show

What show you boys n girls at next? Next official show will be Stafford in October. The organisers there clamp down hard on anyone starting a bike inside the halls though, and it's far too busy to ride anything there. Donington was pretty quiet and laid back. :mrgreen: Hopefully we'll get enough vo...

Re: Donington Show

You should have said, I'd have fired it up and you could have gone for a bimble round the paddock on it. :oops:

Donington Show

I had my old heap on display at the Endurance Legends event at Donington at the weekend, on the Diff'rent Strokers stand as usual. A few people were looking at it quizzically, wondering what it was... :lol: I didn't venture on track with it this time, just rode it round the paddock a couple of times...

Nicely done. Interesting pipes too.

Yet another owner who's lost the middle fairing panels though. :lol:

Re: Misfire in rain

Yeah, I've not had any wet-weather running problems on my KR at all, lucky I guess. My TDR and 3MA were both prone to it though, as was my DT125R.

Good luck. Looking forward to pics from the rally. 8)

Re: Misfire in rain

That zap you got is a big clue ! :lol: Does it cut out altogether or just run on one when it's misbehaving ? In the RC car world, a popular mod is to encase vulnerable electrical components in a rubber balloon, and cable-tie the opening to prevent moisture getting in. Pretty sure you'll be able to f...

Re: Plans for 2018 ?

It's still 2017 and it's running already ! Totally neglected for 6 years and all it took was a splash of fresh fuel and less than a dozen kicks. Ignore the two fuel leaks for now...

Plans for 2018 ?

On Christmas Eve I had a shuffle round of the bikes in the garage, so I could move my red/black KR to the front. It's not run in 6 years and has never been on the road (legally) since I bought it. Time to put that right. It should fire up with a bit of effort, then I need to sort the front brakes an...
