Re: KR1S tyres

I'm pretty sure I used to use the BT50 on my FZR600 and it was a standard road tyre so would be ok for high mileage wear. It was not a particularly grippy tyre more of a touring tyre. When the BT90 series came out they were a much softer and grippier compound trye and a great improvement over the B...

Re: Team Green

Smart!Great photo. Ps How come the KR is still for sale at Jems, it looks really nice. The 1s with the wrong fairing / graphics and cosmetically rough looking engine sold in about a week. Is it because the KR is rarer so people don't remember them? Steve I think your right in part, as we all know t...

Re: KMX 125 new pipe.

Thanks Podman. Yeah your right the white KMX's were only 86&87 models and the last white one I saw in the flesh was in 94 as I used to walk to school. An older lad who lived near my mate used to ride past us on his way to work. I've had 4 KMX's since 98, two were 200's and they were great fun on or...

Re: Unfortunately not my KR-1R

That is Mikes, we was there...Thats his LC which I rode for some of time, when his wrists caved in, i was lucky enough to ride his "R" then but the LC was the comfy seat! We did manage to sneak into the circuit and spotted someone on a KR1S who waved at us, you? Your right to say he took his van wit...

Re: KR1S Rear Sprocket Wanted

Well it has turned out to be a fake FFS ! Contacted J T Sprockets direct who were very helpful and confirmed the finish, stepped machining and the stamp on the back are all dodgy JT sprockets should have a "sun" logo stamped on them with a separate long number , I guess batch identification They su...

Re: CRANK SEAL REPLACEMENT

If the performance is good and it isnt consuming gearbox oil then it points to the seals being OK and perhaps an issue with the pump over oiling? That said, I owned and rode my RD500 for 2 years with a similar concern, that had sat for some years and for a few miles( around 10-15) it performed well,...

Re: Trackday preparation

Your oil pump will provide all the lubrication the engine needs, adding too much oil knocks that coolness and energy out of your fuel and will cause you more problems , way too much will possibly even cause seizure..a lad on the LC forum believes has done just that the last couple of weeks. lastly, ...

Re: New Forks Or Re Chrome Old Ones

A couple of years back, it worked out cheaper(and a couple of months quicker) to buy a set of Tarozzi stanchions for my RG250 than get them rechromed, if they do them for our bikes, you'll find them on Wemoto or eBay.

Re: Donington Show

I was there and spent an enjoyable time on your stand looking at all the fantastic bikes, spotted the NSR150(malaysian market bike?) as well as your lovely KR, wish id seen it running as ive never seen one moving under its own power!
