New 919 owner

Hey guys, just recently picked up an 07 919 with 14,500 miles on it. So far I am very happy with it and have read numerous great reviews about the 919s in general. I keep finding myself coming to this site for info so I decided to make an account and join.

Is there any big things to watch out for with these? It seems like if you stay up on the regular maintenance stuff these bikes are pretty much bullet proof. I like to stay ahead of things if I can.

It seems sometimes the fuel pressure regulators fail. Other than, they appear especially durable - change the oil and filter with your favourite flavours [people feel strongly, don't ask]; change the plugs, but they last a good long time; chain, sprockets, tyres, brake pads, but mostly it's just riding. And modifying, when the bug bites.

Good luck!

Welcome to the forum.
Rear wheel bearings can go early.
Check your lower exhaust mount, underneath. They have a habit of cracking.
Seat can get a little loose. Pack out mount points.
There is a fuel filter in the tank but if ya tank isn't rusty on the inside it should be OK.
Your bike is a late model low mileage unit so it all should be good.

Great looking ride.. These things ARE bullet proof in the last six years of observation. The only flaw I've found is such as IslandBoy referenced about the lower exhaust mount. Mine was cracked, as well, but instead of forcing it back into a place it apparently didn't want to be, I MIG welded it where it was. No more problem there.
If I were going to suggest an upgrade, the first choice would be braided brake lines. You WILL notice the diff. I bought Galfers, but they fit poorly. Much too long. Shop around.

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