Hurley Wilvert

I just heard that former Kawasaki racer Hurley Wilvert was badly injured in a car accident and later died in hospital.
RIP, Hurley.

Re: The special one ...

Pics are visible now. :)
Nasty crash, but it could have been a lot worse. Get a pretty blonde nurse to massage your back several times a day and you'll be up and running in no time at all.

Re: Hybrid project

I was aware of possible cracking at the lower/rear engine mount thanks to this board (a gold mine of useful information!), but as far as I can ascertain I'm the first to mention a crack in a forward/upper mount. It made sense to have the frame blasted to bare metal and check it for any structural de...

Re: Hybrid project

To reduce weight I will be using a vj22 RGV250 style rear caliper setup, which eliminates the torque arm though does require a stopper to be welded to the swingarm. A TZ250 doesn't use a torque arm either and what's good enough for a TZ should also be good enough for a KR. KR caliper bracket and tor...

Re: Hybrid project

Some idiot previous owner of my frame had cut off the locating lugs for the front fairing bracket and steering stop: https://s26.postimg.cc/42v5ggm2h/Cut_off_lugs.jpg However, it's not all doom and gloom as I will be using ZXR400L fork yokes. After having the steering stem pressed out of the ZXR low...

Re: Trackday preparation

The gearbox can take it, but the crank and pistons/rings won't be too happy with a downshift at max rpm followed by slamming the throttle open, especially the big-ends. A spare crank would make more sense than a spare gearbox (a KR-1R gearbox would be nice, though).
