I was eating lunch today browsing through some older post and conversations regarding the 900rr’s. And I remembered that I had one sitting in my “watch list” that I was wanting to post for everyone’s viewing pleasure, so here it is.
Low miles, tasteful upgrades such as Two Brothers exhaust, kevlar brake lines and a jet kit. This one has brand new tires on it and looks to be in great shape. Although this is not a rare bike, it is a super nice example of an older sportbike that has been taken care of. I owned this very year and can say it was quite the wheelie monster as it had plenty of power to weight ratio. The downside to the early 900rr’s was the 16″ front wheel. If I recall, Honda did this to make it steer quicker, but it sort of back fired on them because it made the bike “twitchy” and unstable. However, it was an easy fix, for most racers, to swap a 17″ rim from an F2 and adjust the fork height. One of the things I remember most about my 900rr was fixing the dual headlights so they “crossed” and made an “X” pattern. We felt this helped us see further through a turn at night. I don’t recall if it worked or not, but it was a good topic of conversation at White Castle’s on Saturday night.
