Yeah, this one had been covered with cracked bodywork and scuffed metal all around. Good working order but cosmetically unfortunate. The whole demeanor of the bike is changing and it really is fun.
Michael, did you see that: you got a "smokin' deal!" Actually it sold in less than 24 hours from when I placed the ad! A little sad to sell it, but I sold it to use the money to buy a 2007 CBR1000RR with 860 miles on the odometer :yeah:! I had a 1992 CBR900RR I bought new that I put 48,000 miles on in 3 years, and then sold. Always missed that bike, but I decided to go newer, since it's really hard to find clean, original red, white and blue 1992s with low miles.Your FE went quick! Didn't you just post the ad earlier this week? Then again, for $5K the new owner got a smokin' deal. Were you sorry to see it go?
Mine hadn't been turned over in 6 years. I decided to get my ass in gear and get it back on the street. It was fun doing so and I'm glad I did. Wouldn't have got crap for it trying to sell the bike anyway. I looked at new bikes and there was nothing I wanted more than the '92SS. Hope that helps.
Did you tear down your motor yourself? Did you follow a workshop manual or hayne's manual guide?Picked up a new left side bar switch. Pic 1

These little air cooled motors are ridiculously simple by comparison PumpIron.
Simple elegant pieces of engineering and so easy to work on.

Been wrenching on my own bikes for almost 30 years now and Haynes manuals have been my "go to" motorcycle bibles.
Yeah, no kidding! We got hit pretty hard here...there are still piles by the street from basements. Thankfully, mine didn't suffer any issues.I went for a ride ! No rain for a change. 16 1/2 " in 14 weeks is enough. Even my garden has had enough, it's molding. Ran great, no issues. What more could I ask for ?
