A special edition KR-1

We're so close now! today the brakes got another overhaul, the tank installed and loaded with fuel. This weekend the electrics will be finished off and a blast down the road!

KR-1 Transmission assembly

For those of you following, you might have noticed that an engine was rebuilt for this bike previously back in 2016. It’s been decided that the original engine is going to be used and that means another rebuild it taking place. This weekend was spent assembling the cassette gearbox. 

Parts Worked On: 

  • Transmission

KR-1 with Jolly Moto pipes

Slight change of plans with the exhaust pipes. A second-hand (never-used) set of Jolly Moto pipes became available. These exhaust pipes are amazing and compliment the effort that has already gone into this build.

Parts Worked On: 

  • Exhaust

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.
