She's a beauty! May want to relocate the frame sliders from the engine mounts to the frame. Several have broken a big chunk out of the engine when the went down with them in that spot.

frame sliders

right on this comment.
I'm relocating them "this" weekend.
read the entire thread on why they shouldn't be on the engine tabs/mounts.
So...I bought my 8 grade 10mm threaded rod, (2) bolts for replacing back the engine mount bolts.
I have a trusty mechanic who's going to do the relocation for me.
$20 he'll charge.....its' worth it for him to do it right although reading the thread seems to be easy but I don't want to take chances here.
thanks.

It's the most perfect 919 left in the country. Only mod not done is the grab bar. I bet it will start in two weeks :-)

Jokes aside, nice bike and welcome to the shit show, I mean forum. Tons of great info here!
