Re: Facebook

Facebook is so quick and easy to use, any old idiot can post a - usually poorly-spelled or barely readable - reply in seconds without putting any thought or effort in. You sometimes get crap advice on forums too of course, but you have to put a bit more effort in so it tends to weed out most of the ...

Re: Hello new round here but not yet a 250 Owner

Hi Josh. Depending on your eventual plans for it, it may be worth considering the red/black one on Ebay . Considering the eye-watering prices that particular dealer usually asks for stuff, that's not actually a bad price. You'd presumably be getting a complete-ish running registered bike as a starti...

Re: Bad Starting - Time to bight the Bullet

It'd be great if Ted could be persuaded to come on here and share his knowledge.

Does this bring an end to KR owners bump starting their bikes now?
What, and spoil all Shaun's fun?

Re: Bad Starting - Time to bight the Bullet

Nice one.

I never touch the throttle on mine either, not sure why I never mentioned it, sorry.

How do I join this forum?

I get a lot of emails from Tandem-Twin owners having problems trying to join this forum. Please keep trying - this is the best place for us all to share knowledge and swap parts and bikes. There is a new Forum Administrator who is doing his best to kick the forum back into life, so be patient and ho...

Re: Ignition switch or worse?

I hate electrics. Sounds like you still have a dodgy connection somewhere. Your 'new' wiring harness will still be 30+ years old, and connections that look good can sometimes fail through vibration. If it's cutting out dead, ignore all the circuits for lights/etc and just focus on the main ones. Hav...

Re: Ignition switch

Not sure, sorry. Try googling the partnumber, which is 27005-5041 I think. I bought a used one from Japan (with key) but they're all a bit worn after all these years.

Re: Start of the new Kr1s forum

Nice one Bernie, thanks for all the effort you're putting in !

I've joined - and later abandoned - so many bike forums over the years, but this one is definitely worth keeping alive. :mrgreen:

Re: Bad Starting - Time to bight the Bullet

I hope you've fixed it. :P My own personal unscientific opinion is that any tiny deviation from 100% new and standard (dirt in carbs, degraded coil wiring, slop in timing gears, stale fuel, etc etc) contributes to the poor starting, so every tiny improvement in one area is a step in the right direct...
