Thanks for the info on the pipes, I noticed they were different to a lot of other 1KT`s pics I found online, but then I found a couple of pics with the same pipes, I had thought maybe some came like that, but it`s good to now know what they actually are. Yes I just want to get it running to see if the engine sounds ok, then maybe I will do the crank and water pump seals I guess, and fresh fluids. I bought the bike without even seeing it ! I heard about it 3 years ago and had made inquiries about it, the guy said he wasn't selling, then last week I bumped into a guy who told me it was maybe for sale, I went around to see the guy and made a deal on the spot, then had to wait 4 days on him getting it out of his shed, it was buried away behind a lot of other stuff. It looked really bad when I went to pick it up and I was thinking maybe I had made a mistake, but after a good wash I was surprised how well it cleaned up.

Welcome to the Forum. Your work on that K1T is crucial to keeping the 2T spirit alive.

I have a 3xv. It’s been a challenge, but when it’s right, there is no other bike I’ve owned that’s gives back the Love with more enthusiasm. I’ve owned 2 R-1’s for comparison.

Resurrecting this bike will be a huge job. My experience: Tear it down to essential pieces. Don’t skip the basics (seals and bearings), get the chassis sorted, tune your motor, then let her rip.

I discovered that starting a “Project” thread with good pictures gets the attention from the veteran/experts here. You WILL benefit from their advice.

My best.

So do I. You’ve found the right place for friendly, insightful, detailed information.

There are guys here who’ve owned, ridden and modded 3xv’s for at least 15 years.

Read through the 3xv section and projects relating to this bike.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Welcome.

Hi
Thank you for the ad.
I am totally two stroke. I have built many hybrid/specials in the past.
I currently have a Tdr385, Yamagamma 350, Lc hybrid, Tdr250, building a Vj21 with ypvs385 motor.

Just bagged myself a total wreck of a 3ma



I am going to keep this one standard, strip it and build it back up with fresh motor and coatings.

Last on the road in 2001 , found it behind someone’s dust bins.

Hi all, I have just joined the site and been having a look about and plenty of info on here.

I have a R1-Z250 I bought from D&K in April last year for 2k and spent a further £800 on rebuilding the engine from the crank up and registration costs.

Since then I have changed the shock for a yss one, Fork springs yss, some cheapo fork brace from Taiwan I say cheapo as it was cheap but actually works very well all I done to it was change the chocolate bolts for proper stainless ones, fitted Martin Johnson chambers with Tyga cans, fitted two 28mm tm carbs from dtr125's I now have air screws for fine adjustment, carbon reeds and removed the air box snorkel. I have set it all up with 260 main jets and 35 pilot jests and needles in standard central position.
The bike runs superb and really does fec of up the road stupidly quick for a 250.
The CDI is the 3xc-00 standard one for my particular model. Fitted a pair of Michelin power rs tyres which are superb.

As far as restoration goes all I have done is what I call an oily rag restomod, mechanically it wants for nothing but cosmetically could do with a revamp but I am not to interested in that yet, I have plans to search out big bore options but not had much luck yet, it seems there is no kits out there for the 1kt engines?

Forgot to add I changed the kilometres speedo for one from a TZR125 it only reeds up to 100mph but is a straight fit into the R1-Z clock casing and I can honestly say yeah mate it goes right off the clock

Nice, welcome  :) Looks like you started with the right type of mods (make it handle..)

Those pipes with the tyga cans look real nice 8)

Unfortionately, i dont have any pictures as i'm using my work computer. but pictures will follow soon  :)

I just bought a TZR 250, but unfortionately it has been in a bad accident, and the subframe is bent a bid..

I allways have had a passion for twostrokes, and i am running a classic 50cc racing team here in Denmark, with 4 race bike, all of them are from the east german manufacturer Simson.
besides racing, i do have an RD350 from 1973, and a RD400 from 1976 and offcouse also an RD50 from 1980.

Looking forward to write with you all, and have a chat about bikes.

Kind regards
