My Kr-1 has had the rear spindle clip on it since I bought it 28 years ago, don't think it's an mot advisory though as my other bike, a Suzuki 250 Katana has never had a clip, r clip or split pin in it since I bought it 5 years ago and always passes it's mot.
I've owned my Kr-1 from new and it's only covered 15000 miles (in fact it passed 15000 miles the last time I used it) it hasn't been used since November last year (because of work and crap weather) but it has just started on the third kick which I think is amazing, It covered just 400 miles last yea...
I've always believed in using the same oil that was around when the bike was manufactured, my Kr-1 has run on rock oil power plus 2 (semi synthetic) for over 28 years now with no problems, only thing is that each time I have to buy a new bottle the price has doubled since the last time

Don't know if anybody has noticed but none of these American Kr-1R's have the beading around the screen, so you'll have to add £80 to the cost to get a genuine Kawasaki one in a genuine Kawasaki bag
I'm a Raleigh Grifter fan myself, five years ago I bought a mint 1976 steel blue mk1, same as I had on my 12th birthday, for what I thought at the time was steep at £150 (had to have it though) if I wanted to sell it tomorrow I could get north of £400 for it, better than any ISA or savings bond
[quote=500bernie post_id=101372 time=1511121872 user_id=1148] Its not as rare as the black one for the B2 model, I wonder what one of those would fetch on fleabay? [/quote] My Kr-1 B2 model came brand new with the clear screen edging, I've still got it in my loft, it's attached to the original clear...
Looks like a resto, powder coated wheels, aftermarket discs, very shiny mirrors (never seen that before) and wrong fairing fixings, I know, I could pick a fault with the Mona Lisa (that smiles a bit odd)
Just got this months (November) practical sportsbikes, it's wrapped in cellophane with a copy of mcn so you can't have a quick flick through before you buy, there's no Kr-1r feature, but in the 'next month' section there's 'Kr-1r resto' mentioned, wonder how many more months will pass until the feat...
Or you could have the upper fairing resprayed to match the rest of the bike, seems a lot easier than spraying the whole bike black and green, then you might have to have the colour changed on the registration document, as mentioned it looks great like it is, almost factory.
Just grabbed the last copy of mcn from my local Sinsburys, couldn't believe that they had dragged up that Eric Sawford guy who was in the Bike magazine write up as well, he should change his name to Billy Bull***t, he reckons the original Kr-1 was £2500 new, I bought mine just one month after it wen...

Thanks Bernie, just found that out when I excitedly 'posted' pics on the Suzuki Katana website, I was looking at my bike and everybody else was seeing the rev counter type symbol, when you said 'only you can see them' i thought it was an episode of the X files
Just been on the Suzuki katana website ('cos i've got one) and tried pasting photofukit pics but all they see is the rev counter symbols, it seems that you can see your own pics on the website but nobody else can, oh well, back to the drawing board. p.s I can see a couple of gorgeous pics of my Kr-1...
