KR-1 Bodywork complete

Finally, just before Christmas 2018 the Polar White/Lime Green KR-1 bodywork has been complete. This has been much more of a challenge than first expected and it would have been far easier and cheaper to find a fiberglass replica fairing and slap on the gold, black, green and white graphics with an airbrush.

KR-1 Chain Guard Part 550201296

New KR-1 Chain Guards (Parts 550201296) appear to have disappeared off of the face of the earth and nothing’s worse than trying to restore or maintain a bike and when you can’t find the parts you need.

These Chain Guards used to retail for about $40AUD and thinking about it that’s pretty reasonable considering the cost of the materials. High volume is certainly favourable in the manufacturing game. Read more about KR-1 Chain Guard Part 550201296

Carburettor Cable Adjuster Circlips for part 160021056

This post is all about the KR-1 Carburettor Cable Adjuster (part 160021056) or rather a component of it. Undocumented in the Service Manual are two small circlips (Open ended and flexible rings) made of metal for the purpose of fastening the throttle cables to the mixing chamber cap.
After sifting through all of my newly nickel-plated parts, these two easy to lose items did just that – went missing! To increase the frustration, I like to do things in bulk and therefore lose things in bulk.
