I remember wheel power racing team back in the 90's with Rhys Boyd and Malcolm Jago both on KR1S's.
That RS250 looks nice.
How did she get on?

Running with the back group, in the Formula 400 there was only 4, 250cc bikes 1 rgv, 2 tzr and 1 kr1s. the zxr 400 rule the roost they make up over half the field.

Kwackman12 was in the race but pulled out just before the start, i went for vist in the pits and he had the head off his bike, he thinks there was trouble with a shims?
His daugther Emma also in the formula 400 came 6 =D>

In the Two stroke GP classics its for factory produced or race conversion bikes, Virginia was racing with Yam Tz 250,350 750
Suzuki rg 500
h***a rs 250
Saxon 250 armstrong
Was good to see a mixed bag of bikes :D

Running those cans on stock pipes with out support will result in the stinger failing at the weld top the end of the expansion. I had several go like that.

If you use short TZ cans they are OK but need repacking more often to meet the noise regs. I reckon it must have been some resonance in the system - stinger plus can just hit the sweet spot and vibrated enough to break the weld.

Our KR1s came from Wheel power too, and I got some NOS bits and pieces from them a while ago.

Someone came off in front of me at exactly the same spot, i was trying to avoid the bike and the rider, it all happens so fast!
After that,every lap your eyes are drawn to all the scrapes on the tarmac right on the racing line, kind of takes your mind off what you're supposed to be concentrating on when you know a bike went down exactly where you're about too be,and it was wet............Druids soon wakes you up after that!
Glad to here she's ok now.
