As per my 'Swamp Thing' thread in the projects section - I'm after a set of KR1 wheels with spacers, sprocket carrier, speedo drive etc. Loads of other KR1 bits also required so if you have anything left over from a recent KR1 project please get in touch..

Cheers

Dave

Hi Dave,

I have a sprocket carrier, KR1 speedo drive, front wheel spindle. I think I have a chromed rear spindle somewhere as well.

Also have a decent KR1 front brake m/c with brake lines and splitter.

Let me know if you are still looking.

Cheers,

Andrew

When these bikes were manufactured the factories used the same parts on many different models to save money, the chain adjusters, swing arm nut and throttle cable are probably used on other kawasaki models, if you obtain the part number (by using a parts website like Corby Kawasaki) you can see if its still available and what other bikes the part was fitted on, parts like the rear wheel spindle and foot rest may be model specific though.

Thanks pookie,

Following your advice I've just tried this with the chain adjusters (p/n 330401090 from CMSNL) and then searched on Cradley and CMSNL web site and both say No Longer Available. I can see your point though - they must be the same as other models.

And the swing arm spindle nut is just a flanged nut but i don't know the thread pitch etc.

I've just noticed that Vehicle Wiring Products do various sleeves and cables so if i can't find any OEM parts i'll just make my own throttle cables etc..

The clock is ticking in finishing the bike for the track day on the 24th June but the good news is that my barrels are back from being refurbished so the top end can go back on! :P
