KR1 250 B2 with S-Wheels

A complete ground-up rebuild of a 1989 KR-1 (B2).

KR-1 Odometer Refresh.

After looking at the old 1989 KR-1 Odometer (Part 250151276), the glass was scratched and the trip meter numbers stained yellow from being beaten by decades of sun. It would be a sin to just bolt these old clocks back onto a bike that has had so much work done to it.

Other than the glass needing to be replaced it was only the black on white numbering that needed attention. Read more about KR-1 Odometer Refresh.

KR-1 bodywork update

This is a quick update on the bodywork for the B/C hybrid KR-1. All of the original OEM plastics have been collected and it's just a case of needing to still carryout some minor plastic welding repairs on the lower fairing and left side spark-plug access cover. Once this is done, off with the decals and paint prep begins :) Read more about KR-1 bodywork update
