3691 miles!! 2007 Honda 919 with under 4,000 miles

I just got back from a 2,596 mile trip to go pick this baby up for $3800. She only has 3,691 miles. ORIGINAL! I have been searching for this bike for three years. I had one previously but about 4 1/2 years ago my roommates son thought it would be funny to fill my pipes with water. Well, when i went to start it I was unaware of the pipes being full of water and busted all my piston rings. Long story short, i owed 3900 on a busted bike so I did a voluntary repo and let it go. I was the original purchaser of it and had put 32,000 miles on it before this happened. Any how, i found the new one in N. Carolina, the original owner was 63 and bought it new. Too many health problems kept hime from riding so it say in his garage under a bike cover. He started it twice a month and changed the oil once a year just because. So the bike has had 9 oil changes and only has 3,691 miles. I found the one!! I'M EXCITED CAN'T YA TELL?!?!?!

I immediately took off the gold pin stripe tape that the guy had on there as soon as I got home.

Not a bad buy. Just a shame as the 919 isn't quite the bargain it used to be.

You've scored yourself a real nice stock hornet 900. That old boy was just really looking after it for you. Crazy what happened to your previous bike. Is that guy still alive?

Super clean bike! Mine looked like that but I added some dings because drivers are stupid.

Don't forget that some fluids (brake, forks..) should be changed because of age, not just miles.

That's unreal what your roommates did, fill the pipes with water? I hope he paid for that somehow.

Started it twice a month? Why? The guy that l bought my 599 from did that. What a moron. Fouled the plugs on that bike. 4100 miles, and l had to change plugs. The 919 is injected, the 599 is carbured. You may be ok. But I would probably change plugs.

Nice bike, tho. You did good.

I'm sll for shooting the little bastard that ruined your last bike

I think the idea stems from those that store cars. Back in the day, there was the theory that you need to drive it or at least let it warm up every so often so the internal's don't go bad.

I've had an engine sitting almost 20 years now and I intend on opening it up before I start it up.

IMO, miles on a Honda aren't such a big deal. I had one guy trying to beat down mine when I had it up for sale, it's at 26K and it runs like a champ. Hondas can go for 100K+, they're just a damn well built machine.
