KZ 250 Turnaround Tracker
« on: Jan 31, 2018, 14:24:08 »
I picked up this KZ250 LTD last week with the intention of fixing it up and selling it. Figured it might be worth while to post here. Iím not sure itíll be considered a Tracker but we shall see.

PO had hacked it up pretty good and installed some pretty lame OCC gear to the bars and controls. It came with a brand new set of sprockets, has new cables all around and what looks to be a new-ish bikemaster battery.





Nice spot for the kill switch and starter button. At least the original unit is still intact.



I threw some XR parts at it but they didnít stick

First things first, ditch those ape hangers in favor of some superbike bars I had sitting in the shop. Much better, but Iíll need to trim the cables before I get all the hand controls ready.

I took the grab bar that came with the bike, chopped it into a few pieces and welded it back together and onto the pre-chopped rear end of the frame. Ignore the chopped up VW in the background!

Next project was to shave that bulky king and queen seat down so this thing looks halfway decent. I trimmed the stock pan to fit into the rear hoop and got rid of about 40% of the foam on the seat. Most of it came off the passenger hump.



Looking much better already. I have some material to cover the seat with but I need to adjust the pan and foam a bit more to get it to fit properly. May wait until I have a rear fender fitted before I upholster it up.
