Welcome!

This is probably the biggest community for 919 owners; to my understanding the ones in Europe are not as active (at least for the 919). But like Ott says, give it a few more months and there will be a lot more activity. Make sure to check out the Helpful Topics sticky

On the 3 picture down it looks like one of the header pipes has a dent in it from a rock or something. It even looks like it is discolored also, or am I just crazy?

@ND I'm sure you're still the only guy who can Power Wheelie out of the main turn on a Silver 919.

@Jim : shot with my gopro HD2 mounted to the tank
@dave, you are correct
@nd4.. sorry man Im learning to wheelie, I can do it in 1ft for a short while, but its hard cuz im fat.

@undercover, you are correct. I need to get new headers, but have 0 money. I was thinking of going to a muffler shop to see if they could hack it our and do a slip on patch job. It was like that from the PO
