You will need the headlight and will obviously have to fabricate the various mounts but I can't see any real problems with it. You may also have to cut bits here and there to fit around things like the stator cover.

I don't think much of it is interchangeable but the only way to know for sure is to open up two engines and try swapping stuff around.
What exactly do you mean by upgrade and replace a lot of engine parts?
Have you considered buying an SC33 engine to build it back to new or better and then swap it in?

Re: 954 fairings on 95 900rr????

don't take this the wrong way. But it sounds like you wanna upgrade basically everything. Why not just get a newer bike? With the cash you get selling yours, the difference will probably be about the same and it will hold up to resale better than all the added parts, which will basically be like throwing money away on the resale end

I agree with you on pure mathematics.
But I get my money's worth out of my bikes in the hours of enjoyment that comes from building them and then from riding something I've put together myself. I would never get back any of the thousands of dollars I've put into any of them - but I don't consider it wasted money :-)
I know heaps of people that waste far more on alcohol and cigarettes.

very good point. And at the end of the day, it's all about whatever makes you happy. I can't help but think of cost first

Re: 954 fairings on 95 900rr????

I agree with both of you. like i said i am new to fireblades, and building bikes in general. basically i got a crazy deal on this bike and already love it...probably because it my own. i do plan on buying a newer bike next season, but i would like to make this my hobby bike. do alot of custom work on it and keep it clean and ride to bike shows and things like that. there is definitely a good feeling looking at something you did yourself that gets peoples attention and all the new bikes only grab attention if your going 120 on one wheel with your ass on the tank lol and im not ready for that. and blade because i am new to this i dont know much about the sc33 or newer or even my engine for that matter. whats your take on that?? opinions never hurt.

As far as I'm concerned nobody looks at bikes, we are invisible to all other road users.
I don't understand what you mean regarding my take on the engines.
I already asked you what you meant with your previous engine question.

Re: 954 fairings on 95 900rr????

what i meant is would it be worth it to buy an sc33 and put that in my bike. power gains??? and is it a basic bolt on ? sorry about that, and my sc28 seems to run great i was thinking about replacing things that routinely go bad just because i dont know what the previous owner had done. still have yet to change the oil, plugs, air filter. i did find an sc33 for a low price, so good possibility if the gains are good

As far as I'm aware the SC28 and SC33 engines are interchangeable with no difficulty but I doubt there's a significant power difference. A good SC28 could well be stronger than a poor SC33.
I can't recall anything that routinely goes bad other than perhaps the stator and regulator but it's best to wait until they do.
Be sure to replace the brake fluid and fuel filters as well.
