Back in the fold!

After a 15 year absence from the Supersport fold, I finally found one I wanted.

A '95 900SS/CR, 12,200 miles. Needs the carbs cleaned.

I brought it home last night.




It already has a new battery and a CF clutch cover. I already have a few parts in the shed for it...adjustable fork (2 sets), 2 good shocks, 2 different aluminum swingarms, a 5.5 rear rim, a CF front fender, a Barnett clutch basket, 2 different ventilated clutch covers, and lower clip-ons.

Need to order some belts, check the oil strainer, etc...

Anyone wanna buy a Monster?

Well, well, well...

Upon further investigation, the chain is too short.

Previous owner had a new chain and a 41T sprocket put on a year or 2 ago. Axle is all the way forward, swingarm won't compress and go over center.

I can't go for a test ride, I'm just gonna put a gal of gas with some injector cleaner in it (after draining the tank) and run it long enough to get it into the carbs. It started when I looked at it, but it surprised him and I told him to turn it off and not suck any more crap up into them. It can set until I procure another chain.

I just remembered....I have some European needles for this in my toolbox somewhere. I got them before the Cagiva guys quit ordering them. The bikes run real good with them and a pair of slip-ons.

Gotta go look for them..

(I might change my sig line to "Save the Supersports!)

Looks like an aftermarket seat too!

I'd say we both got pretty good deals on 900CRs! Accept you've got a whole truckload of extras you've been hoarding for a decade and a half. Excellent foundations for building up really fun bikes.

These things are just mega bad ass motuh sickles.

ROOMbah ..... ROOOOOOMMMMbah ROOMbah room room ROOMbah!



Good catch mang. I'm happy for you. "get on your bad motor scooter and ride"

the seat appears to be a Corbin, which I personally love.--I am still fighting the urge to purchase a solo tailpiece for my 91 900ss lol--I'm sure as soon as I get mine running exactly as I want it to-- the little voices inside my head are going to be taunting me to get that solo seat lol

The more I can learn by following fellow ~SS~ riders the better.

Deja Vu...

I have one of the most comfortable seats that came with my bike. A two-tone Corbin Gunfighter. I just spent a fortune (total) to have a Sharkskinz #1 badged Solo Tail produced and sent off to Jason 'Artistimo' for painting, along with a vintage OEM front fender for a race stripe. I just know its not going to be anywhere near as comfortable, but its the look I want without sacrificing anything stock.
