They were fitted when I bought it. Some chinese carbon wannabe plinkers. Quite poorly visible when active.

So after some days of work this is the status quo.

CURRENTLY DONE:

- custom K&N airfilter
- cut a bit off the airbox snorkels so the bike doesnt have to breathe 'around the corner' through a couple of reverse bent straws
- bigger 110 (too big, darn it) jets. Need to try 108 next week. 110 is too rich in top end: lost 5BHP. And she was pushing 60 BHP too... Sad
- fitted SOME KIND of rear monoshock Tongue. I thought it was the original but it seems that is not the case. My CB now suddenly stands 10 cm taller than normal. the jiffy won t even reach the freakin ground Grin
- removed centre stand (which also doesn t reach the ground anymore anyway)
- fitted sintered brake pads
- cleaned out the front brake
- synchronised  the carbs

TO DO:

- replace 7 year old tyres
- replace broken steering head bearings or whetever they re called in english
- fit 108 jets
- extend jiffy so the bike doesn t tip over Tongue

Fitting the new rear monoshock.



Now it suddenly stands way too tall for the jiffy. Bike stands at a very dangerous angle:




Custom made K&N airfilter. made it bu cutting out the old standard paper thing, then cut out the shape of the new filter. The new K&N filter originally fits the CBR 900 if Im not mistaken.
A knife, some multi purpose sticky goo and some patience and you end up with this:



Works like a charm so far. the bike can now breathe properly.

TO BE CONTINUED

60hp is very good, I'd be surprised if it doesn't have some other mods going on.

If you get a 92-99 cbr900 side stand, it is a few cm longer. Also, it's just a tube so much easier to extend if you need to.

Thx! Grin

Ive already got a Hawk jiffy lined up to go. If that doesnt work ill look for a CBR jiffy instead.
