New 919 Rider checking in...

Hello all... I've been a euro snob regarding motorcycles nearly all my life...
I recently bought a 919 and its charmed the pants off me...

I absolutely love this rig...

Thanks for having this resource...

Ive already done 929RR front brakes and master cylinder... many other tasteful mods to follow.

TWHS. Had some chick do this to me once. Well, maybe a couple times.

Thats a nice clean bike ya got there. It looks almost bone stock, which is great if you're the modding type since it gives you a blank slate to start with.

I don't know if you ride in the rain at all, but I'd advise getting some block-off plates for the grab handle holes in the back there to keep out rain/dirt/debris.

Welcome to the forum!

It had a tail rack on it when I got it with a nice GIVI box, but since I already have a Ducati Multistrada, I put the GIVI box on my Multi, and need to the order the caps to block them off.

Doesn't someone on here sell them?

Hello and welcome. Can you take a closer picture of your CBR929 master cylinder set-up?? I'm thinking of a brake up-grade myself. Thanks.
