I spotted this beauty for sale at a show last weekend. Being that it was the first one I have ever seen in person (they are very rare in the US), I bought it!

Mostly original, and in pretty good condition. What a hoot to ride! It joins the stable with a 1988 TZR250 2ME, and a 1988 RG250 Gamma Mk3.

Now I just need an NSR..... Very Happy

The little ARs co-exist with the KRs quite well to be fair...heehee

Is it just the angle of the photography? The Ar looks physically bigger than the Kr-1R.

Sean, I think you need to collect the Kr series though.........

You do have the most sort after to start with Love

Thanks Mr Howie... problem is I think the Wifey would kill me. . She doesn't know how many bikes I have as it is thankfully Wink

The AR is quite large for a 125 but it must be angle cos it's not bigger than the KR. .Erm I don't think .. bugger wil have to measure to check. Certainly doesn't feel as big to ride Very Happy

I saw on the KR-1S forum a thread about a hard tail cover that a fellow in N.Ireland named Davey was making for sale. That forum is very hard to use and won't let me send PM's. Anybody know Davey and how to contact him?

I am also interested in any NOS or minty clean parts fore sale for the KR-1B I just bought. In particular, I would like to find a stock exhaust with the black chrome all intact (impossible?), and a windscreen and any body panels.

Thanks!!!!
Tim
