Re: Help needed with my KR A2

Re: Help needed with my KR A2

Hi Stew, There are a few CDIs on ebay? I have 3 sets, but don't know if any work yet. Could always send a coupple down for you to try out? As for seals I don't know which one might cause the excess smoking, but all are readily available from bearing shops, they are not strange sizes or anything. I s...

Re: Help needed with my KR A2

Hi Stew,
I'll have a look at what I have. Think I might have a few spare CDIs.
Which side CDI is it left or right?
Glad to hear the bike is up and running, mostly.
My project has stalled a bit, all bearings & seals replaced in bottom end though.

Re: Rebuilding my first of two KR250 Tandem Twin Bikes

I am also about to begin rebuilding one of my many KRs.
Apparently the dampers in the primary gears can cause hard starting if they are out of spec?
It is covered in the clutch section of the workshop manual.
Others here will probably be able to shed more light.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Re: Parts Required for 85 KR 250-A2

Hi Stew,
I might have some if not all of what you need.
Will have a look in the shed tonight.

I'm in Queensland so a fair way away, might be easier to find parts closer?

Re: Fuel economy.

Two Wheels magazine claimed an average of about 16 klm/L in their road test in 1984 if that helps.
I think I got about that when I had my last one in 1989.
Have a good new year.

Re: Front brake mastercylinder kit

From the KR250.org website parts book the part No. is 43020-1050. Google brings up the part Number attached to Zx6R & others but no mention of KRs, was about to take a gamble but thought I'd ask the collective wisdom of the forum first :D

A couple of KR for rolling frames for sale near me.

Just spotted this add, I wonder what the 'nearly complete' one is like?
Resisting the temptation to call because I know I'll end up buying them just because they are there !

Re: Tandem Con rods & pistons availability / alternatives?

Thanks for the reply. Is the Mito rod a straight swap for the original? Can the Mito rod be used with original pistons? (not that I have originals, but know someone who has everything but rods to get his bike back on road) Will consider your engine work offer, bit of a commute from QLD to Sydney tho...

Re: Tandem Twin Owners

Took the plunge the other day & picked up a couple of very sorry looking '84 KRs (as mentioned in my post about alternate con-rods). Will try to attach pictures but forgive me if I f#@$ it up :) Had a KR as my first "real" motorbike back in about 1990 ( I don't consider the Z200 that preceded it to ...
