Ok im noticing some discrepancies between my Aus delivered '94 (SC28 VIN) and US and UK models which is making ordering parts from overseas a bit confusing.

Mine has;
*electric speedo sensor
*compression and rebound adjustable forks
*rectifier with large aluminum heat sink
all of which seem to be consistant with US '95 models?

Then the UK models seem to have different letters attached to the end 900rr-N,R or S or somethig?

Can anyone clarify what my bike is and what the equivalent US and UK models are? or direct me to an existing thread on the subject?
Thanks in advance!

The letter indicates model year, including Australian models. The designator is the same regardless of the market and is the only way to identify model year - the manufacture date does not indicate model year.
'92 is RR-N, '93 is P, '94 is R, '95 is S, '96 is T and so on. '00 is Y then they switch to numbers from '01. US did not get '92 models.
Tenth digit of the VIN is the model designation.

Thanks for clarifying that Bladeracer, and Ian, yeah, it makes me wonder if I should be ordering '95 parts from the US vendors :huh:

I guess my first question is why are you ordering from the U.S.? Wouldn't it be easier to get your specific RR parts from an Aussie dealer? To be accurate and answer your question about what you need for your Aus 94 would be tough. If you post your VIN we can verify what the year designation is. If it's an S then the likelihood of the U.S. 95 stuff working should be good. But to make an educated guess I would say the U.S. 95 RRS model would be a reasonable choice in parts.

Ok, so you have a P model. Disregard everything I said then:rotfl:

Can't really explain that.....
Thats actually an "R" the camera made it look like a P
the rest of the number is lets just say its somewhere between 200001 and 200700

There isnt too much out there in the way of aussie dealers when it comes to aftermarket stuff, so i find myself on the internet looking at stuff from the UK and the US quite a bit.
I guess i'll just have to keep back checking part numbers against each other.

As far as aftermarket stuff goes there are a lot of interchangeable parts. On my 93 I'm running F4i gauges, 95 speed sensor, 96 forks, a VFR 17" front rim, etc. The frame, engine, controls, fairings etc should all be US 1995 RRS I would suspect then. And to further guess, the forks I can't see being any newer than 95 either. I saw you had a thread about looking for brake rotors. I would use the U.S. 95 model for them, seeing as though you have be electric speedo and no mechanical gear drive on the front rim. I'm very familiar with these models as far as US fare goes. I'll help anywhere I can.

If they are 94 U.S. spec then they will not work on your front rim, the outer diameter of the left side hub is larger to accommodate the speedo drive gear.

ok thanks Ian, I sent them a message changing my order, hopefully they see it before they chuck it in the mail. Worse case scenario, will the earlier rotors fit on my bike?

The bolt holes may all line up, but the left side inside diameter of the rotor will be far too large and may stress the bolts too much.

I'll post a pic when I get off of work, I have 700 pics of my build, none of the front wheel speedo side:rolleyes:
