Default My first blade

Ola peeps,
New to the forum, not new to bikes.
Ive just purchased a 1998 cbr900rrw blade here in the uk and am in the process of stripping it down to do a fighter build.

Nothing wrong with it, not been crashed or anything its just something ive always wanted to do.
Ive a tonne of questions for those who know my year bike/situation.

Any help/advice is always greatly appreciated.

Your bike looks identical to one a friend had and moved on a few years back. South Wales area. Handle bars and forward of them look a little different but that sure looks familiar to me.
Hope you don’t mind me asking on your thread but I think I have identical discs (Rezo Performance) as you have and I’m a little concerned about my free play in regards to it “floating” I have no rotational play but on of my discs has a good 2mm side to side. How are yours mate, mine are 1500 miles old ?

I fightered mine out of a fully faired roadworthy bike.
Ive got no play in them yet, mind you ive only ridden about 100 miles on them tops. Seem to be ok for now though.
My renthal bars are on 55ml billet risers.
The harris footrests are up for sale lol
