Re: KR1S Bottom Yoke Wanted

Since the total weight will be less than 2 kgs, postage will be 9.80 Euros without Track & Trace, 13 Euros with Track & Trace.

Re: KR1S Bottom Yoke Wanted

I have a KR-1S lower fork yoke, but it isn't "good"- some loon drilled holes in the steering stop lugs!!!!! These would have to be welded up first before it can be used.

Re: fork springs.

It makes no difference in the functioning, but with the tight coils to the top reduces unsprung weight and is thus tobe preferred.

Re: KR250B3...?

Kawasaki's official Model Recognition Manual might provide an answer, but mine only goes up to the 1978 model year. I never bothered to obtain the later supplements!

Re: KR250B3...?

At what point do the frame numbers of the B3 and C4 start- is there any official record of those numbers? And would they have had new colour schemes?

Hear, hear! Hear, hear!
And don't think of it as being a year older, think of it as being renewed for another season!

Re: KR weight savings

Magnesium is another potential weight saving material as it's about 2/3 the weight of aluminium.

Re: Hybrid project

I don't know enough about carbon fibre to judge whether it would be suitable for spacers etc, especially CF tube under compression. Weightwise it would of course be great! I selected titanium for the swingarm bearing spacer because of its known properties; aluminium woud have been lighter and cheape...

Re: KR weight savings

I've bought a ZX-6 servo motor as a potential replacement for the standard KIPS item for my project, but haven't figured out a way to test cable travel yet. The cables themselves will have to be custom made, but that is a minor point.

Re: Ignition switch

Wouldn't parts such as ignition switches have been common to many contemporary models, e,g, early GPz900R, GPz600R etc?

Re: Hybrid project

Drilling holes should work on both the standard spacer and the titanium replacement providing you don't overdo it. The standard spacer is nitrided however, and drilling won't be easy- you might need cobalt drills for that. I've never done drilled a nitrided part I can't really advise- so best check ...
