Still fine on the street I'm sure but when two bros (before they spilit and errion racing came about) went back to the 94 frame for racing, it gave the 95 a bad rep.
It did get the lights and shift linkage. I put linkage on my 94 from a newer model.
94 and below had the "too stiff" frame, 95 is when designing flex into the frame came around.
96 and 97's are about perfect, specially with an aftermarket tree (and f3 17" front if you want, it has 918cc and, taller gearing.
98-99 got the corrected offset, forks spaced wider and even taller gearing- feels a little bigger to me.
And that is one reason I loved finding this site, helped get me up to speed on knowing the 10r because my life before was 900rr's.
