Nice find Danny. The whole bike is shiny - not just the forks :lol: . Cool indeed!

great info Jarmo - where is frame 000001 ?
printed parts list was dated November 1987
so bikes were built in 6 months prior to release in Jan/Feb 1988

KR250B-00xxxx
KR250C-300xxx
KR250C-00xxxx
here is a sequence from 7 bikes at the C3 end of production scale
where the engine is now higher than the chassis (because of those 3 variations)

frame, engine
KR250C-00685x, engine 852x
KR250C-00685x, engine 856x
KR250C-00685x, engine 851x
KR250C-00734x, engine 897x
KR250C-00734x, engine 895x
KR250C-00734x, engine 895x
KR250C-00734x, engine 895x, February 1991

August 1992, USA, Chassis KR250C-008239, KR250BE-009902



Danny i have got a bike last week and its from second owner and has never been raced.
Frame number is kr250c-008001 and engine is 6341
This is confirmed by kawasaki dealer where bike was sold when new in 1991 (its a c3 model )

So higher frame number and quite low engine number

Thanks Jarno
might be a market/country anomaly
the ones I quoted were for the C3A (oddball SP) cluster and tbe USA example is confirmed by the crate sticker

I have found to judge data held by organisations eg our department of motor vehicles with sckeptism
Records can be scanned and numbers transposed.
Even the inpectors first registering or later inspecting have been prone to getting numbers mixed or upside down even with 6 ans 9s or 14 vs 41 etc

kr250c 001515 frame engine, kr250be006429
there is a large gap in KR-1S chassis between frames 001600 and 007000ish where there never will be frames.
because I think we all agree only the engine numbers are contiguous series
