CBR900RR 1996: Rebuild Parts Q's

1996 CBR900RRT

I've pulled out the main wiring harness, and some of the relays appear to be corroded, or melted, or just plain broken.

The key is snapped off in the ignition, and I am looking to replace the whole thing with an RFID key-less ignition system. Can anyone recommend a system?

The Gauges are dead, I'm looking at wiring up an Acewell 3913.

The front and rear suspension have zero travel, I'll be having them looked at - I think the rear can be saved but the front might be bent.

Fairings have been thrown in the garbage, looking for an non-fiberglass ERION fairings - I am not sure they exist though.

Any advice or direction would be fantastic - its my first rebuild so this will likely be a long, slow, process where I make a ton of obvious glaring errors.

First Honda!

Re: CBR900RR 1996: Rebuild Parts Q's

I've got some rebuilt front brake calipers. Pretty good condition stock seats ( no tears ).
all the stuff I have is stock but I rebuilt a 96 RR and completely rebuilt it. I have alot of stuff I took off it and replaced. The parts are used but in working condition. Let me know if you need any stock stuff and maybe I can help you out.




The bodywork is gone but the I still have the rest of the parts in the last photo.



Here's a copy of the completed bike.

Holy smokes, you jumped in with both feet! I hope the motor has oil in it and it turns over. We'll be here to help you out.

Well it definitely has oil in it, and supposedly it could be pushed started before I started tearing it apart... It's been sitting for at least a year I suspect the number is closer to two.

It needs a lot of work, but it shouldn't be toooo awful to get her up to running order.

Edit: The 2nd Photo is of a nail that was being used as the rear brake pedal...

Will send you a PM once I figure out how...

I apparently don't have PM abilities yet - but do I see a Fuel tank cap, Switch Set, & Switch Assembly?

Wow and I thought I had a basket case. Love to see people get something that has been neglected and turn it into an amazing machine once again. Good luck with your build.

Re: CBR900RR 1996: Rebuild Parts Q's

welcome to the site!! it needs some work but ive seen way worse come back to be fully bad ass so you can do it.

check out auctmart for the fairings. get injection molded not compression. most of these suppliers can make the fairing to order based on nothing more than some stock pictures of what you want off google images. it doesnt even cost any extra to have them custom painted to match what you want. ive seen several guys simply send in pictures n they nail it. auctmarts is a pretty solid company based on friends that have used them. pretty good quality for 550$ delivered. oem fairings would run you better than 2,000 if you buy them new.

I had never heard of this stuff before, but a ton of old racers swear by it. You can dip your carbs in this stuff whole, doesnt hurt rubber parts. I just bought some and am going to soak my carbs this week sometime. You can find it on Amazon or Ebay.

This may sound weird but those look pretty good compared to what I'm used to. Here are mine from 2013 when I resurected my current pride and joy from the brink of death:

Re: CBR900RR 1996: Rebuild Parts Q's

Well I have an slip on exhaust on its way... And I've been boiling my carbs in Oxy-clean, possibly a regrettable decision.

Re: CBR900RR 1996: Rebuild Parts Q's

LETS JUST SAY, IF THINGS WENT HORRIBLY-HORRIBLY WRONG...

What aftermarket carbs fit the 96?

As far as I know, only Keihin FCR's with TPS work in either a 39mm or a 41mm versions. Ian will know for sure.

Oh, and the sound of them make it all worth the price tag,
