Got to ride the bike today and I am impressed (113 miles). The transmission ratios are closer than I have ever ridden before. This thing is rather fast in the first two gears (pulled Wheelie without trying).
Now the bad news, the handlebars kill my hands and I have been adjusting all day to get rid of the pain. I'm 6.0 Ft and 210 lbs (skinny) and the best position to date is rolling the handlebars upward (.12inch) with mark on bar.
Also, while working on clutch and brake adjustments, I forgot to put down the side stand and over she went (scratched motor casing and bent clutch lever). Pride is hurt and blood all over - but I will survive.
I did order a 1.0 inch riser for handlebars in hopes it will help.
This machine gives better wind protection than my Harley. Note I have installed a Rifle wind shied (5 inches oversize). Love it and it looks cool. I hurt like hell or I would try to post a picture of the windshield. Your posts have already shown me how to torque handlebars.
Overall, I a little scared of the 919 and thats good.
I love it.
By the way, my prostrate is fine and only pee a couple of times a day.
Does anyone know torque for mirror pinch bolts? Please advise me if you know.
I hope in the future I will contribute to your Forum. Fantastic site.
Also, I currently have the three bikes I posted and have owned over twenty in my lifetime. Enduro nut in my youth.
God Bless and watch out for motorcycles.
