I’m considering the purchase of a kis tr-1 (current owner says it has the heavy duty nose gear).

2 questions, is there such a thing as heavy duty nose gear for the tr-1?

Also is the plane grass field (relatively smooth) capable?

Thanks

The TR1 has gone though  quite a few   variations on the nose gear ( at least 3 different types   , plus  some  additional  strengthening  of  the  2nd version  )   , some were good , some less so .  if possible  sent a picture of which  nose gear  is installed ( or provide a   good description of it)
  1. original  gear ( sprung steel  with no  springs or pivot ) ,  
  2.  mk 2 gear :  large spring and pivot  point  with a streamline profile steel  main leg.  
  3. Mk 2  gear  with additional  stengthening   - as Mk2 but with two steel strenthening bars welded  down the full length  of the main leg
  4. Mk 3 gear   large  spring and pivot point  with  heavy duty  thick wall round tube  for the main leg

So the answer is yes they do exist and if you tell me which one I can  explain  what to look for


 I operate my TR1   regularly on both hard and grass runways. Some grass   not smooth at all,  I have had no problems for 17 years with  the Mk 3 nosegear  which is extremely strong  - but a lot heavier .

650 Hours total time on  my Tr1
