very rare these bikes today , can only find a few owners in my country , the R model has 34 carbs while the S has 28mm , they re also extremely light for their age ,u ve also noticed you ve steel and nicasil sleeved barrels ? , also the rings are keystone ones ,(atleast on mine S model! )
The bores on both are nicasil plated , Yes, I believe 35mm carbs on the "R" , different (heavily ported) barrels along with a close ratio box, it also has different wheels vs the "S".
My friends "R" has 11BHP over my original model(both bikes dyno'd and set up on the same afternoon, by the same operator) but as he is 2-3 stone heavier than me, the bikes seem pretty much neck and neck. Both great fun to ride.
KR1 hadnt turned a wheel in 6 months and I hadnt laid a spanner on it over Winter but she fired up 3rd kick, for me no better riding experience on these roads on the 250s , headed out with my mate on his gorgeous RGV who also owns the KR1R above, what a great day to be out and about.
