919 greetings from San Jose California

I've been dreaming about a 919 for a while.. '06 in candy red it shalt be, with low miles and I wouldn't mind fixing it up a bit as I like to tinker with bikes.

So when last Friday this '06 with 14k miles popped up on Craigslist I pulled the trigger and took her home for $3600. I really wanted the 6/16 date on the title

Pretty much stock, except for renthal bars, windshield and fender eliminator. Needs some work, chain cleanup and adjust (done already), pads, change all fluids, standard stuff. And I need a new rear shock it seems..

Other than that, took her for a spin after cleaning and adjusting the chain and putting some air in the tires. Oh yes, this is the bike. It just fits me and I love that engine! As a child of the 80's and 90's for me this is everything a motorbike should be.

Greetings!

Welcome to the pack. I also love the naked retro look of the 919. Looks like your hose guard has slipped off it's upper mount on the lower rad hose. Nice ride.

Ready to rock&roll

Well it's been a while since I purchased this somewhat neglected 919 on 6/16 last month. I was out of the country for a couple of weeks so things dragged out a bit but finally, today, I am at a point where I have this baby about where I want it. All maintenance done (most..), some repairs and a few upgrades/mods, too.

It's been a good day, I've been riding it all day and I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship :-)

Here's a few pics of the old lady all fixed up.. can you spot the mods?
