Was this before of after you dropped your NC29? Are you keeping both? Interesting colour scheme..is it original?

If that's outside your house, you need your hedge cutting ;)

I bought this after dropping my NC29. I will keep this ZXR 400 for at least a year. Unfortunately now its making some rattling sound between 3000 to 4000 rpm. I think the cam chain tensioner or something around there is wrong. This is going to be the last old bike I am going to buy. Getting a bit fed up with fixing bikes.

Don't blame you. I felt the same when I had problems with my NC29 and NC35, so I bought a brand new Bonneville, although I still have the 2 Hondas.
What's happening to your NC29? I'm looking for some parts if you're thinking of breaking it!
