SC28 and SC33 head interchangeable?

Hello all,

I have a 95 CBR900 SC28 fox eye in need of a new head. The old head had cracked exhaust stud boss. Runs fine but hate living with it. So I decided to do a head swap. Only source for me is Ebay. I am wondering if the SC33 head can be directly bolted on to SC28? If not, I will stick to 92 -95 head. Any idea?

Re: SC28 and SC33 head interchangeable?

Hi and

The heads will bolt on each other straight away as far as I know. There lies some problems however. Depending on what year 96-97/98-99 SC33 head you get will determine if you need to replace your temp sensor unit (98-99 were digital vs analog), and the T-stat housing and associated coolant plumbing is a bit different.

I see no advantage of going to an SC33 head, unless they're the only ones available. If you have to, I would go with a 96-97 vintage. Obviously sticking with the 95 would be the best option.

have you considered trying to fix the exhaust stud boss? Surely thats a cheaper option?
