Call me a glutton for punishment but I have bought back my old Kawasaki Estrella 250. It's a bit worse for wear and the lack of attention bestowed upon it by the previous owner, but I like the bike and it's great for bombing around the red roads around our village. Good plus is that the misses can ride it too ( something which she couldn't do with the ill - fated CRF ). There was a rumour that this model was going to be introduced into Thailand this year, Kawasaki having produced the model for over 20 years now, but nothing so far. I need some ' bits ' for it because I feel like stripping it down, having it painted etc which should be interesting because I can take things apart easily enough, but always feel unsure when I put them back together. I called in to MPS Kawasaki in Korat on monday. As soon as the parts guy heard the model number he became ' not interested ', but the sales girl who had taken me through to the service and parts department pushed him a bit and I got an address and phone number of Kawasaki in Bangkok. I've yet to try it but I think this is just the main showroom there. Unfortunately in Isaan, we are nor blessed with many bike shops ( I live near Buriram ) as it would seem you riders up in CM are. Does anyone know of a decent bike shop anywhere where I can get bits for the bike ? I was told about ' Burning Shop ' in CM who can bits from outside Thailand, but this was in relation to my old Honda GB400TT. I know I'm going to be up in CM for a week in December so if I can get all my information sorted by then, I may with your help, be able to get what I need. Incidentally, the ' bits ' I need are a rear sprocket and chain, a new clutch assembly and hopefully a new front mudguard. Original handlebars would be nice as would a pair of original mirrors but these latter two are not so important. I also need to sort out an electrical problem with the neutral light remaining on at all times. Obviously someone has had a go at altering the wiring at some stage. Franz reckons to re - wire the bike but I really feel this is beyond my scope, but then....... Any information however useful would be gratefully received.....and yes, I know, I really needed my brain testing to have even ventured into owning this bike again.
