Just joined from pacific grove California

This is my first post as a member following information since buying my 2002 919 2 years ago. As an FYI for my first post bought the 530x chain with sprocket kit from bike bandit the DID chain was a link too long. Chain was at max adjustment with no room for adjustment as delivered so we took out a link and now I have adjustment to move rear wheel back as it stretches. Anybody have a fix for the rust on my lower triple clamp? Cheers!

Welcome. The rust on the lower triple seems to be a common problem. Mine has it. I just regularly paint it. Next winter I intend on removing it from the bike, stripping the rust off and painting it proper.
