SC28? 29

I purchased a 1994 CBR900 bike now the Vin and engine numbers state SC28###### for both. On that motor it has a 96 ish clutch cover with the oil window, which has probably been changed at some point due to gravity being the winning factor.
I'm currently renewing the rotors and taking measurements to assure fitment, The supplier Metalgear, catalogue Id of 1994 is SC29 and the supplier states that 1992-3 is SC28
Now before everyone jumps on and states "must have had the front end replaced" , yes that's possible the bike is old, and unfortunately has been in the hands of a less than scrupulous owner, however I was just wondering is this like a "in-between year" sort of model thing where parts often find their way onto mid changing year models and vise versa ?? thoughts.... and would I just say this is a SC28 1994 or a SC29 1994 ??.
thanks

No such thing as an SC29 'Blade.

Re: SC28? 29

I agree with Bladeracer. Although I have seen people refer to the 900's sometimes as an SC29, I believe it's either a typo (meant to write an "8", but thought it was a 9) Sort of like a mythical model created by accident. lol

This web page seemed to have a good handle on all Honda VIN identifiers, with no CBR 900 RR SC29.

Re: SC28? 29

for what it's worth the. SC29 was sold in France parallel to the SC28, French SC29's have lower lift on the inlet camshaft to comply with French restrictions of 100hp, I have just acquired 2 of them (in the hope of making one good one) and so far SC28 parts have been compatible
