Difference between 900RR & 929?

What's the difference between a 900RR & a 929?

I'm confused because the guy who sold me my bike told me it's a 929, but then it turns out (via frame stamp) that's its a 900RR, which I didn't realize until later.

I'm Totally happy with the bike, but confused over the Model Difference... So far it seems that I can put many 929 parts onto my bike (Sprocket, Filter, etc) which I bought unwittingly for the wrong model.


Thanks for any help,

--Al

Re: Difference between 900RR & 929?

What year is it? I belive that if it is pre 2000 then it is a 900RR if after it is a 929(2000-2001) the 954 followed(2002-2003) depending on geographic location, people may still call your bike a 900RR when it is really a 929RR
Hope that helps

Re: Difference between 900RR & 929?

All of them (900RR, 929RR, 954RR) have "CBR900" in their model number.

If it's a 2000 or a 2001, then it's a 929. 2002 or 2003 it's a 954. Before 2000, it's a 900.

Wow, that's screwy! Mine is a yr 2000 and say's CBR900 on the Tag... Mechanic started my confusion by saying it's not a 929, it's a 900.


Ok, so then this means that my seller actually sold me what I thought I was buying... suppose that is a good thing.

Thanks guys,

Re: Difference between 900RR & 929?

sounds like the mechanic is an idiot. The official model name for them (on the frame tag) is CBR900RR (except the Erion Edition 929 which is a CBR929RE). If its a 2000 then its a 929. You can be positive which engine is in there because on the side (I think right side) of the engine block it will tell what size it is, 929cc

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Get him to tell your insurance company that it's only a 900; not a 929.

Re: Difference between 900RR & 929?

The real difference between a 900rr and a 929rr is that the 929 is the sexiest 'blade of them all.

Are you guys kidding?
A 929 is injected as is everything that came afterwards. A 900 has carbs.

+1. I have the same bike and the frame tag says 900. BFD, I know its a 2000 929RR. Besides that fact that the 2000 is a clean sheet redesign from the 900RRs.
