    KT250 road legal?

    Hi All, been looking at KT250 trials bikes as a project for the boy and I and was woundering if these were ever able to be registed for road use?

    Yes, they were. I had one when I was a boy. It was road legal.

    Mine was one of the bulk imported "farm bike" items. By the time I got it the speedo was fukt, (stupid bloody place to put it) but I doub't it'd ever been registered anyway.
    ...sixty seconds' worth of distance run...

    Originally trials and enduro bikes had to be road legal,so they came fully equipped. Back in the day there was a day time WoF...and you will find the KT still has an exemption for indicators. Not a comfy bike...unless you are standing up.
    and he hits the trunk road doing around 120
    with no room left to brake.

    It's not the seat that's the problem,it's the riding position - they were made to ride standing up,so sitting down is not very good.

    http://kawasakikt.tripod.com - try Fred&Deb's website for anyparts you might need. Don't be fooled by the .com address - they are in Upper Hutt.

    Well we got a project KT last month for the grand sum of $0.00 and of couse it needs every thing done.
    only parts missing are the front guard with brackets and the speedo, this is a great project for my son (17) he has spent hours cleaning the engine components, just need to rebuild the crank and find a new piston, you know all the money stuff
