Gentleman, the unthinkable happened and my beautiful girl went tits up as I inelegantly rammed her into the back of a non-moving car on the very congested highway.
Until then I'd been thinking I have a regular UK 1993 RR-P model, as that's what the frame and enginenumbers belong to,according to my Haynes book, but now that I've started
to try and find some parts to replace my broken radiator and completely crushed front, I've
gotten myself confused.
My front fairing has (had :-( ) only one headlight, while from what I can see, the 93/94 model has a twin headlight. I then noticed my frame has two numbers, one that has been struck over, but which starts with JHSC289, and another one, obviously not written by Honda originally, that matches a 1993 RR-P model (the same is the case on both places where the framenumbers are written).
Likewise the enginenumber also matches the same 1993 model.
I can't see the SC289 number in my Haynes, but when googling I found it here: CBR900RRN SC289 HONDA Motorcycle CBR 900 FIREBLADE 900 1992 ESPANA - Sale Honda motorcycle spare parts microfiche origin - http://www.bike-parts-honda.com
CBR900RRS SC289 HONDA Motorcycle CBR 900 FIREBLADE 900 1995 ESPANA - Sale Honda motorcycle spare parts microfiche origin - http://www.bike-parts-honda.com
The front of the latter (- Sale Honda motorcycle spare parts microfiche origin - http://www.bike-parts-honda.com
) looks similar to what I had, but that's a 1995 according to
the webpage, while the first, also with a SC289* number, is a 1992.model according to the webpage
The fairing I'd normally try to get would of course be a 1993 model, but that one has
the twin headlights, while I only have the wire harness for one headlight on my bike,
so that's obviously not going to work out without some extra help. :-/
Thus I'm not sure what model fairing I should be looking for.
The colourscheme on my bike is the same as this one, if that's of any help:
I'm not expecting it to be easy to find replacement fairings locally, especially here in Norway, so I wonder what year model should fit. The front fairing was totaled (though amusingly enough the lightbulb survived), and most of the right handside too, but left and belly is more or less ok.
Would somebody smarter than me care to hazard a guess on what might be the case
with my frame and fairings here? I guess the original frame was replaced and then the framenumber of the orginal frame was etched into the new one, but what year does a JHSC2892 0(O?) M* frame belong to and does it seem like my single headlight fairing
belongs to that year?
Much obliged, gentlemen. -- Michael.
