KRAUSER K1 PANNIER FRAME TO BIKE FRAME FITTING KIT

Postby GraySWTRF » Fri Apr 15, 2016 9:32 pm

I know,I know.
Its a long shot, and I have emailed Krauser as well but no reply as yet.
By any remote chance,has anyone a K1 fitting kit lurking around anywhere ?
Or even a part number would help ?
I have the pannier racks,so I just need the fitting kit that attaches them to the bike frame.800 SR42.

You guys have helped me soo much so far,and all that help and advice is really appreciated. :tup:

I am sure Big Bob will be able to assist as he is an expert on panniers of the Krauser brand :tup:

They haven`t made the K1 system for at least 30 years and are now on the K5 system.
I used to have the K1 system back in the 70`s and 80`s but it was inferior to the later system as the locks used to break and the pannier fall off speed, as I found out!
I`ve been using the K2 system since about 1987 on a number of bikes as it`s a much better design, and have two systems for my Bigs.
They made a fitting kit for the K2 on the SR43 but not the K1 on the SR41 & SR42 iirc. You can still get one here for the SR43 K2 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Suzuki-DR800- ... SwstxVEEst
Krauser went bankrupt at least two or three times back in the day so no surprise you are not getting a reply as they probably don`t have records going back that far.
You may get lucky on German Ebay as there`s a lot more DR Big stuff for sale there, ditto Krauser.
I`ve adapted the fitting kit off a different system onto mine and you will have to do the same as there`s no other way.
My advice would be to fit a cross brace as the K1 system had a horrible habit of wobbling about and breaking.

Thanks Bob,for the valuable info again.
A bit more fettling then for me.
I have seen K1 kits for other old bikes,so I think I will buy a couple of those, so at least I have a start with the special square ended bolts this set up needs.Then get the welder out of hibernation and make something up.

The 91 fitting kit is different to the 90 and it`s also for the K2 so totally different

I tried to bend 18mm but there was no way with a pipe bender, I ended up using 14mm ,just took abit of time to get the bends right :tup: but was alot cheaper and more fun than buying the frames :shock:
