New Addition...

Hello all, new member checking in...

I recently bought a Hornet 900/919 as a new addition to the garage. It's a 2003 model which has had quite a few mods; tail tidy, indicators, renthals, YSS rear shock and an Akrapovic 4-2-1 exhaust.

There are a few niggles to sort out but I'm enjoying the ownership experience so far... especially the buzz through the bars and pegs, haha!

Great to see that the forum is still popular and the access to old threads is a great resource - long may it continue!

This is definitely the place for 919 info.
Got any pics?

Thanks Gary!

I don't have pics any right now. The gauges, headlight and tank are currently off as I'm trying to find out why the rev counter isn't working, but I'll try and take some when it's back in one piece.

This may not be the right place for this question but I tried to start a new topic about my busted rev counter in the Mechanical & Technical subforum. On submitting, it said that the post had to be approved first by a moderator which is fair enough, but it hasn't appeared.

I've submitted it twice now, the first time 4-5 days ago and again a few days later but neither has appeared. Am I likely to have done something wrong, or do I just need to be more patient?
