Looks great, well done! Except for the license plate, what an eyesore on such a beauty. Europe really loves those gigantic plates lol.

Really nice build!
AND
I immediately zeroed in on the T-Rex Racing swingarm spool adaptors.
Nice simple and secure solution.
Much easier than welding on spool mounting blocks, which is what I did for mine.
For those who don't want to fabricate, don't want to drill through for through bolt mounting, and don't trust using a sticky padded lifting point, they look like an inexpensive solution.

Great looking ride!

That pass seat hard cover just gave me an idea. I've been looking for a storage solution and the 919 is very limited. I make a single only seat, cast a new cover that would replace all the plastic, pass seat and grab handle that most don't seem to like.

This would allow for some simple storage of things like jacket liner and what not. I've been caught without the jacket liner more than once and wanted a perm storage on the bike for that.

Thank you all.

Europe does indeed like license plates! The one shown is actually smaller than that specified by the regulations, but not a big deal.

The 919 / Hornet is a great bike. I have another one (blue) not farkled to the same extent, but in the same condition.

Safe miles wherever you're riding chaps.

the seat cover? what is that?
who makes it?
Also....great 919. She looks like it came out of the Batcave (diggin' the double bump headlight faring). Looks "muy bueno".

He listed the goodies above, I did a lookup. Seems it's not made anymore and they're blowing out what they have.

IMO, it might look good but not be so functional. It gives me the idea to make a fiberglass rear where you'd have the single seat only and all the rest would be storage.

I don't give rides on mine and never intend to, so that whole area is just a waste. Having it all as 1 section and maybe making it a tad bit larger would be awesome for storage of my jacket liner, cargo net, etc...

anybody know of a belly pan that comes up to the radiator and covers the headers? I wonder what a fine metal mesh would look like + belly pan...
So many rocks and crud on the inner part of the headers...makes me cringe every time I look in there...

You'd think that'd be a great new add-on.
The belly pans I've seen that only go to the bottom of the exhaust I'd pressume would only collect rocks and crud in that pan thats suppose to act as a belly pan.

Now that I took a double take on the OP photos...I'm wondering just "what" these belly pans protect?
I mean, you'd think they only collect stuff in there?....No?

Wow, I like the look of that MV!

The belly pan is largely cosmetic in value. It may do a little to protect the underside of the bike from rock chips. It's easy to remove and clean the downpipes etc.

The T-Rex spool adapters are a great addition.

Yeah. See how it reaches up to the base of the radiator. Attaching it via the two bottom screws that hold those two silver brackets on the radiator would be perfect. Not sure where to find such a mesh though... Might check some local hardware store.
