Yup one more Canuck on the board!

Hey folks,

Another 919 owner here.

A wee bit about myself....I work in one of western canada's largest Honda motorcycle dealerships in the sales department, and after months of being able to ride any bike in our used/demo inventory i finally picked up my own bike.

Well since we sold our last new CB900F last year, i've been looking high and low for one myself.

As of 6 weeks ago, i picked up a MINT 02 900F for 3500 CDN.

The previous owner had the bike hooked up to near mint...

MODS -
Remus Grand Prix pipes
Power Commander
Goodridge Braided Lines front and rear
Pairs Plates
Air Box Mod
Crash Sliders
SW-MOTECH Centerstand
Honda Fly Screen painted black
CRG type bar end mirrors
Stainless Rad Guard
Plate Eliminator
LED Brake Light intergrated turn signals(ClearAlternatives)
Front Shorty LED signals
NEW LAST YEAR Sun steel Sprokets and ERK 530 Chain
BRAND NEW Galfer Wave Rotors front and rear (less then 500kms)
BRAND NEW SBS HH pads front and rear (less then 500kms)
BRAND NEW Pilot Powers front and rear (less then 500kms)




The only thing I don't like about the older 919's is the lack of suspension tuning. Fixed rate dampening makes me pretty

oh well, hasn't stopped me from riding it every chance of every day.
