New KR owner

Post by Aman » Thu Oct 10, 2013 2:54 pm

Hi, I'm Aman new KR owner from Malaysia. A bit introduction of KR in Malaysia.
Less than 20 units were imported in 80's & most of them were neglected same goes to mine more than 20 years keeping inside garage.
I’m just lucky having this bike & undergo for restoration.
My KR probably the 1st KR joining 80’s bike gathering in Malaysia as Malaysian never seen this bike not alike Yamaha family (RD,RZ,TZR), Suzuki (katana, RG250, gixxer) & h***a (NS).


Photo taken in 1988. 1990, this bike no more on the road due to no spare parts & hopefully will be back next year.

Yup, that's Malaysian registration number on windshield. There are a big fan of yamaha & suzuki 80's bike called it RETRO bike but people never seen tandem twin in any bike gathering. They don't want for any risky having KR as no spare part + hard to maintain for tandem twin system.
KR's one of rarest bike in Malaysia.
Besides, i'm also suzuki fan & owning RG250 HB :lol:

Yeah thanks..
I got plan to replace broken handlebar with GPZ model. Just go thru to the GPZ (GPZ750) photo' s & seems can be fitted but not sure the exact dimension.
Can I go for it?
