Anyone out there got a set of cbr900 1995 inner fairing panels (bits inside the main fairing at front that lead down to belly pan) for sale, these things are like hen's teeth!

more work done on the new Blade (Posh is her name) project. Cabbie had to strip the cams etc and reposition stray shim to remedy the misfiring but she has fired up a treat and purrs/growls to order. Hopefully post up some vids tomorrow. Hydraulic clutch feels lovely
