Re: KR-1R in the states for sale!!!!!

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 :lol:

Re: Cost of KR1 ownership

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 8)

Re: Stafford Oct 17 Nice KR1

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) :lol:

Re: MCN

Yeah, that kr/ar 50 is very nice, there's a feature on a Suzuki Katana resto as well, as I own one of them it made up for the kr1r omission.

Re: MCN

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...

Re: top fairing

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.

Re: MCN

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...

Re: Blue haze day Ace cafe Sunday 17th September from 9.00am

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 :lol:

Re: Marmite #2

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...

Re: Marmite #2

I had a bombardment of ads when i went on the site too, but if you persevere and click to remove them and then log in, go to your album, then select the pic as normal, but instead of clicking on the box to copy the pic (the small box with image no, 123etc in it) press the right keyboard or mouse but...

Re: KR1 Restoration

According to the 'how many left' website there were 12 Kr250 b2's (original Kr-1) registered with the dvla this year, one more than the year before, this doesn't include ones that are sorned, because the data is taken from the dvla there might be a few Japanese or elsewhere imports included in that ...
