New Cincinnati 919
Hi everyone, I figured I'd introduce myself as I imagine I'll be frequenting this site a lot - especially for how much I did before I purchased my bike. It's been extremely enjoyable the past few weeks riding it through some hills and twistys around Cincy.
It's an 07 with 7,300 miles on it, completely stock. Took it to get a PPI and the only thing it needs is the chain re-tightened and new seals on the forks. All in all was quoted $150 and he said everything else was in great shape.
It looks like the original owner wanted to make it a touring bike, as it has a Guzzi motorcycle rack and HUGE front windscreen, as well as some handlebar risers. So if anyone wants these three items, I'll be selling them.....I think the previous owner scratched the rear end with the Guzzi and repainted it since all the 919 stickers are off. I'll buy some on Ebay since I like that "919" on there.
Plans: I just ordered a Mivv X-Cone exhaust that will take 4-5 weeks to get here from Italy, will do a fender eliminator, paint some bits black, and but some Renthal Ultra Lows and call it a day after that.
Regarding the risers, I took them off but the "bolts" are not OEM as they are extended and do not allow me to put the stock bars back on. Anyone know where to purchase stock ones?
When it comes to the suspension, I see where you can turn it Softer or Harder with a flat head, but I thought there was a special tool to do further adjustments?...
Looking forward to learning more about this bike and continue riding it!
