Ahoy hoy

Sonic Moto here, got myself a 2007 Honda 919 a few months ago and am loving it.
Previous motorcycles include a 2015 kawasaki ninja 300 and 2016 suzuki gsxs 750

Thanks,
Sonic Moto

I'd fully agree, this bike handles so much better than the previous bikes. Ninja 300 was totaled while knocked over in a parking lot. Suzuki I went down on it 2 months in on a back road. Insurance totaled that as well.

nice clean one you have there. any idea what brand those clip on spools are on the rear swing arm? anybody on here know where i could get a pair of those? I'd like to avoid drilling into the rear swingarm.

They're r-rex racing TRex Racing 20022007 Honda CB 919/900 Hornet Spo

I'm going to end up taking them off honestly as they're mounted too far forward for any spool stand I've used to get leverage on them. I might eventually just get the $250 center stand.

Thanks,
Sonic Moto

Man, that bike is in lovely condition. I don't even want to think of how much work it would be for me to clean my bike up that nicely!

Welcome to the club! Watch out for the off-topic for the time being, there's some politics talk going on. (I'm one of the guilty parties admittedly.)

Ahh really? damn... Can you not pull them further back? on they're website, the pictures show that they're placed right on the end of the swingarm not towards the bike like you have.
Or does it not fit because the axle is too close ?

Too many parts in the way to mount them further back, the photos on their website are on a 919/hornet.

Yeah the bike is in great condition, the first owner dropped it in a parking lot or something causing small scratches on the engine right side, second owner I purchased it from had a light scratch up against a fence when walking the bike but otherwise it operates flawless.

You mean on a 600 hornet ? that one has the blocky end of the swingarm so I can see how it would work there. Sigh... will have to drill it then...

Mine is the 900, not 600, I'm sure the 600 might have a slightly different swingarm but as far as the cb900f here, there are no other spots for the clamp on spools

Thanks,
Sonic Moto

Welcome to the madness!
For sure get a centrestand. You won't regent it. I picked up a OEM stand from a wreckers cheap. I don't keep it on the bike permanently. I chopped out the centre of its mounting tube. It fits, without removing the exhaust Y link pipe, in about 1 minute. I just keep centrestand in shed.

I have pretty much decided if I run across a really nice used 07, for cheap, I'm going to buy it.

The swingarm on the 599 is totally different. I use the Pit Bull with the One Size Fits All, round protrusions. But I much prefer spools. KTMs come from the factory with bungs already welded in place. But on the 919, I've always thought if you got the hollow axle from n F4I, you could stick a rod thru the hollow axle, and make something work.

Nice, Sonic. You did well!
