Hi, New guy from New Zealand here

Hi, been lurking a while. Great resource and seems like good people. I'm an older biker returning after getting life stuff out of the way. My last bike was a GSXR1100M circa 1992 but I have made my re-entry with something slightly more civilized by acquiring a 2007 900 Hornet. Already made some changes with an Ohlins rear, bikini fairing, Scott Oiler and 1000R mirrors. Happy with the bike just getting my confidence back,--its been more than 20 years since I last rode.

Howdy, and welcome!
Has anyone suggested ditching those engine mounted sliders? You should.

Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.

True! Mitre10 and such places sell threaded rod that you can use to move the sliders up to the ends of the frame, away from the engine mounts.

Welcome aboard!
Enjoy the 919.
I'd say that given your history, you'll find it impossible not to.
