FNG

Just picked up a 2007 Honda 919. Love the bike even though I probably paid a little too much... Hoping to find some ideas to make the bike a little more comfy for long distance riding. And make it go faster of course.

Welcome to the club.
Speed is cool but let's be perfectly honest. You didn't buy this bike for it's speed. You bought it for the "good at everything, great at nothing" personality.

Howdy!

Motovation frame sliders make decent highway pegs if your legs are long enough. Other than that all I really desire for longevity in a ride is a better seat and wind protection. I also haven't bothered with more than an OEM accessory wind screen and wedging the seat/learned how to grip the tank.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Really , I bought the bike because it felt super easy to ride the first time I hopped on it. I wanted something smaller and better handling then the big cruisers I have been riding the last few years. Maybe something a little faster too. I am coming off of a yamaha raider, and a strattoliner before that. The 919 seams to fit the bill. I have only had the bike for a couple weeks, but I am digging it. There is a run up to Mount Saint Helens may 15th. I can't wait to put this bike through those turns.

The bike came with yoshimira exhaust, barends, adjustable levers, and corbin seat. Now to find some bags and a windscreen. Hopefully before the 15th...

I like the looks of the givi a755 and the 240 is okay. But I can't figure out what brackets are needed to mount them to the 919? I am having a hard time finding stuff due to the fact that alot of links in the forum are dead or items are discontinued... Anyone have some more up to date links or even a good screen and mounts for sale?

Thanks for the welcome

The A240 needs 919 specific brackets. I happened to find a set at Revzilla a while back, but, I think you'll have to go second hand or use voodooridr's sketches.

I could take a shot at making my own brackets. We have a small machine shop at work. Thanks Voodoo

Did I do something wrong loading pic? All I see is "Attached Thumbnails", and no pic?. Been seeing it else where around the site too, in other posts.

Welcome to the asylum. The more miles you put on it the less "too much per mile" you will have paid. After a while you will have forgotten about that. It's not about how much you spend as much as how much you enjoy it. Ride on and do that.
