CBR900RR as promised...

Good afternoon folks,


For those of you who didn't see my original post, I'm back after a bit of a break and looking forward to next year's challenge!


I've bought myself a 1995 CBR900RR and couldn't be happier with her, after already putting a few hundred miles on the clock (unfortunately for the bike she'll be ridden in all weathers!). I've included some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Let me know what you think,

Very nice. I like the way it looks original, to my inexpert eyes. Particularly the exhaust: please promise you won't be changing that for some aftermarket pipes

 

For me it was the other way around, my first bike after a 400 was one of these, a 1994 one and I just didn’t end up getting on with it very well unfortunately, had a 954 and loved that and a 2006 one and that was great too.

OP it’s a great looking bike, Classic 90s Fireblade and I hope you enjoy it :thumb: .

Thanks for all the kind comments, she was a great find! The exhaust is actually aftermarket I believe, the brand is Remus, but it sounds good without being too loud.


The crash bar is interesting, I think it must be an original part, it seems to be pretty integral part of the bike but I could be wrong.


I rode her for around 300 miles straight from the dealership and she didn’t skip a beat, but you do have to be very positive with the shifter! Lots of character though, doesn’t feel like a mundane production line machine at all!

The "crash bar" is a frame part that holds the mirrors and screen steady :wink:

On that note, the mirrors are totally disgusting and out of place. I’m almost certain they’ve been replaced after a mishap!
