    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.

    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.

    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
