Referring to the Honda CB750, I presume? Yes Sir, I believe it was the first street bike to have disc brakes.

Bike in the middle is a 94/95 blade on the heel plate its marked 919 which was introduced in 96 denoting its restricted. If it has 918cc markings on the r/side of cylinder block this will be the full power model.

The 918cc Fireblade from 1996-1999 was a UK spec with an average of
118 bhp. The 919cc was for mainland Europe where power is restricted to just
100 bhp.The sad side is the current blades are pumping out 165-170 yet the French and German counterparts are still on the 100bhp output. Wot a waste of modern tech.

How did they resrict power back in the Carb era? Currently I'm presuming they use the ECU for the same (?), which I'm told can be gotten rid off by some fancy hardware, true?

All carb models had Capacitor Discharge Ignitions (CDI). The early carb bikes had disc restrictors in either the exhaust or inlet manifold. From 1996 stricter laws came into force where the manufacturers had to change camshafts, exhausts, carbs and the CDI unit. The current wave of super fast bikes are restricted by the ECU to 186mph or 299kph this enforcement was by the Motor Industry's governing body in which a speed restriction was made on the car world to 155mph. When the bike world went into full manfacturing battle mode with the Busa bragging over 200mph followed up by Kawasaki's ZX12R which was allegedly a faster machine. The Governing body then stepped in and told all the worlds bike manufacturers to come up with a voluntary speed restricted figure or they will get screwed up like the 4 wheelers.The 186 was then agreed. To overcome the restricton we had to change to a HRC ECU unit on the 09 blade which unleashed all the power with a full race exhaust to compliment the already installed fuel/air mapping. On other bikes there are some trick software which infact is more gimmickry than functional.

The zx9's were the last crop of the 'big' liter class bikes, and how someday I'd want to bring home one of these or the 98-99 smiley Ninja.
YC, what registration plates is this Ninja running? Looks reasonbly well kept (?) besides the thrashed 'Z' on the left hand side fairing. Any inputs on this one?
