Found these pics from an early trial (for me) in 2010 at Kaitoke north of Upper Hutt - run by Tim Tibbes. Note I am so new to the sport I am wearing my scooter helmet, Lol. The bike was very rough and only just ran when I got it, but with the help of Fred Carter I got the bike sorted and rode it for 8 years. And the last pic is of me on Fred Carters bike, going for a test ride to help me see how great they are when fully sorted.

Merry Xmas to all the KT family out there. Heres a few pics of a KT I recently picked up in NZ as my new twinshock trials mount, and I hope to do some trail rides as well. Not keen on the seats lack of padding. It will get a full repaint over time but for now it will be a rider, not a restored show bike. Its for grin factor super fun

DC Alloy Sprockets was the brand name I gave my sprocket range as a tribute to my late son Daniel Cochrane who was a great KT250 enthusiast, and classic scramble rider in NZ. Sadly he was killed 5 years ago in a freak motorcycle accident in Queensland. We had a lot of fun on the KT250, plus riding Suzuki & BSA, road bikes, plus he raced a 1971 BSA B25MX for a few years, even sharing it with Jeff Smith 500cc World MX Champion and SSDT winner. Dan was my inspiration for buying the Fred Carter KT business, I knew I could help people

DC ALLOY SPROCKETS
Service Bulletin Kawasaki KT250
The 1975 KT250A and 1976 KT250A2 were originally supplied with 15T countershaft sprocket (front) with a 52T rear sprocket, the later dished in shape. A 14T sprocket was offered as a factory option. At a later time Kawasaki issued a 13T and 17T optional sprockets for the KT250.
15T front was for general road use/plus off-road, the 14T for trail riding and farm use, a lot of KT were sold and used as farm bikes in New Zealand. Others were used for commuting, town riding, bush bashing, trail rides, deer & pig hunting, competitive trials and even beach racing in the trail bike class. A very torquey and versatile machine and very popular in NZ.
13T front were for trials use and hunting in the bush, while 17T was for the serious road rider. The original KT sprockets were size 428 chain, and upgrades to 520 size have been available for many years due to the greater availability of 520 rear sprocket size options.
DC Alloy Sprockets is a new approach to keep the global KT250 fleet running with a range of 428 and 520 sizes available, and a spacer to solve the dished sprocket problem.
KT 428 alloy front sprockets in sizes 12T, 13T, 14T, 15T, 17T available – 52T Rear
KT 520 alloy front sprockets in sizes 10T, 11T, 12T, 13T, 14T available – 44 T rear
Ratios 428 Ratios 520
12T - 52T = 4.33 10T - 44T = 4.4
13T - 52T = 4.00 11T - 44T = 4.0
14T - 52T = 3.71 12T - 44T = 3.66
15T - 52T = 3.46 13T – 44T = 3.38
17T – 52T = 3.05 14T – 44T = 3.14
Please note – These ratio lists show the comparative ratio to help you select your sprocket choice. 12T has been added as a Trials ratio that some riders prefer – and equivalent 520 combinations are shown to help you choose. (some owners have purchased a selection of front sprockets so they can enjoy their KT250 for different ride events, styles. Other sizes if required to special order.
DC alloy Sprockets & Rob’s KT Spares are not responsible for any performance upgrades or tuning problems you encounter with your KT. The sprockets are designed for use with standard engines, not road racing, beach racing, land speed work, hill climbs or sprinting pursuits. Nor are we liable for any claim for accident or injury caused while working on, riding, competing, racing your KT250 machine.
Kawasaki KT250 alloy sprockets - an engineered design solution with a spacer for your rear sprocket, plus a range of high tensile alloy front sprockets by DC Sprockets of NZ - pictured are the 12T, 13T, 14T, 15T & 17T front sprockets, the rear spacer, plus the 52T (standard factory item).

KT 250A2 1976 Restoration - paintwork and decals. I've noticed a tendancy for signwriters and painters to make the KT sidecover and tank 'duo green' stripes line up to make a strait line. This photo shows the correct setting of the decals, matched from NOS parts from Fred Carter by the very fastidious owner Mark from Wanganui
New Airbox rubber - to carburetor. The old rubbers go hard and some can be brittle or corrode. Air leaks do effect the smooth running of your KT. Seven or more years ago Fred Carter saw the need to produce new carburetor to airbox rubbers and invested over $2.500 USD in getting the injection mould tooling made so a NZ specialist company could make small production runs for him, to get all the KTs running sweet again. Rubber prices have skyrocketed in the past 2 years but I have been able to keep the latest batch down to $45 USD plus $12.55 airmail postage. I can combine postage if you require other items, [email protected]
Kawasaki Carburation - One of the best ways to solve 'running' problems with your KT is to eliminate any potential air leaks and have the best air filtration for your machine.
Unifilter KT250 Filters made in Australia are made using the best air filter foam available in the world. I get the filters made to special order so I can keep the KT fleet running well. They are listed on Fred & Debs KT page, and I sell them on ebay,com and ebay.co.uk. They are listed at $26.75 USD plus airmail postage of $12.55. If you come direct to [email protected] they are $24.00 USD (I will send you a paypal invoice in currency of your choice) plus postage - no listing/success fees to pay so I can pass the saving onto you. I can also combine postage to help keep costs down
In New Zealand KT250 were sold in large numbers and were very reasonably priced back in the late 70s. They were sold as farm bikes, trail bikes, trials bikes, commuter bikes and some were even used in Beach Racing in the trail bike class. This was taken in Whakatane at the local beach races I believe - 'Just too much power by the look of it' - more details to follow later
