Extra bolt for balancer cover on KR1?

Post by Gerrit » Wed May 25, 2016 11:51 am

One of the differences between KR1 and KR1-S is that the balancer cover is secured by an extra bolt on the KR1-S. Is it possible to modify the KR1 castings for the extra bolt (i.e. drill and tap the parts as applicable) and is it a worthwhile mod? I would assume that Kawasaki didn't go to the trouble of adding the bolt for no good reason.

I wouldn't bother, I've never heard of balancershaft troubles .
You know it's cold outside when you trip over dog shit instead of standing in it.
