    not to threadjack too far from the initial intent of this thread, BUT, just have to say,
    even though I'm not a streetbike Honda guy, I've always loved the early cbr900's. they just looked the business!

    those old bikes looked meaner, but I think the new RSV4 has that look about it.

    alright, back on topic

    holy HP!

    230hp on this thing, got to love the wheelie, um, wheel.

    if I had complete disposable income like Jay Leno or whoever, this is the kind of weirdo stuff I'd fill my warehouse with, just to have it!

    crojack, no worries, it has been me hijacking and redirecting my own thread lately. Any bikes of interest here CBR 954's are the best deal on the net right now, seriously, search them if you have entertained a blade as a bike to own.

    1989 or 1990, VIN would help determine year model, I can run it through my DMV software.

    JCG...F-ing sexy BTW, good god, what a riot.

    So I have been contacted by the owner of a 1994 ZX7/9 conversion. It has 39mm Keihin flatslide carbs, 1mm overbore 13:1 ZX9 Muzzy piston kit, 40 lbs lighter than stock, he swears it weighs in at 420 lbs with enough fuel in the tank to ride it for a few miles....the only issue really is color and that the base bike is not the "R". It is the horrible all black and purple...but in near showroom state....and all the pink stickers are removed.

    The ZX9 engine swap is very common on these bikes and really works well. This one did 148.5 DJ bhp, heat output is a little greater due to oversize motor but so is torque output...hmmmm. Price is reasonable, less than $4k.

    If only it were green....God I love that color so much on the 1993-1995 bikes.

    My thinking of course is that as a total loss project, the paint work is done to get the color I want, Ohlins go on to replace the Fox twin clicker out back and Race Tech front forks, then Aprilia wheels can be used along with brakes and pumps...and another 10-25 lbs is gone. Wheels in 5 spoke or 10Y style OZ could be painted Lime green for little money. Stock ZX9 carbs go back on, I could give a flying fuck about the 5-8 bhp lost, the ease of use and predictability is priceless.

    Motor is fresh, all gears mesh well, bottom and top ends were done at the same time by a well known and reputable Kawasaki specialist, verified personally and have decent faith....

    Tough call....the cost of doing the paint alone will be over $1000 or less if I decide to learn to paint in my spare time, all bodywork is perfect for paint due to NEVER even dropped condition.

    I know I should run...but which way...

    Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional...

    So it goes in the state that James L. Petigru, anti-secessionist and former South Carolina attorney general, long ago described as “too small to be a republic and too large to be an insane asylum.”

    It's like George Carlin once joked: You know a person with average intelligence? Now realize that half of everybody else is stupider than that.

    I saw that and thought the exact same thing. The bike looks really nice then you see a rattle can sprayed and dented chamber.
