New pics of the bike

Hi everyone,

I know that there are definitely some more developed 919's out there, but I thought I'd post a few pictures after my recent modifications. I'm happy with all of them and think my bike has a pretty unique look with the single side exhaust. My future plans include a 17t sprocket, new front turn signals, ohlins fork springs, and maybe some CRG levers...(pricey).

The modifications that have been made thus far are as follows:

Power Commander III
Two Bros. Full Carbon Exhaust
Fender Eliminator Kit
Renthal Ultra Lows
Oberon Bar End Mirrors

I have included a few pictures. Please excuse the poor quality of my cell phone's camera.

You need a couple of 10 mm black plastic plug buttons to cap off the OEM mirror holes.

I'm more intrigued by your avatar. Only an Industrial Designer would have a sketch of that quality. What's your line of business or did you pull that from somewhere?

There's your plan and then there's God's plan.........
Your's doesn't matter.

The avatar was not my work. I am a financial manager at an accounting firm. I wish I could create something like that.

I totally need some plugs for the OEM mirror holes. I feel so ashamed. Too bad there is 4 inches of snow outside right now or I would make the change tonight.

While we're in the business of bringing up sore subjects... I'm also going to be cutting about an inch off each side of the bars (if the controls will fit) to narrow things up and that should give me another chance to better line up the bar ends with the grips since I drilled the holes in the bars about .125" off, hence the gap in between the grips and the mirrors.

I've also gained 15 lbs. this year.

Nice looking bike,like the look of the low bars; interested in where you found the tank bra. I have a 07 919 with a dent on right lower corner i would like to hide for now.

John Boy,

The tank bra is from Lockhart Phillips Racing, but that came with the bike when I bought it. After looking at their most current catalog, I didn't see the CB900 on the list of availalbe models for their current tank bra. Best of luck finding one. I really like it.

Nice looking bike!
You'll like the narrower Renthals. I recently cut 3/4 inch off each side and it feels great.

The exhaust was purchased from Kyle Racing in Cali.

An Inch might be a bit much. you might end up using the inner most part of your levers.
Try a 1/2 inch at first.
I recommend sliding everything inward as far as it will go & test ride it before cutting.
After some unforeseen adjustments & your happy, then cut whats left sticking out.

Thanks for the tip. I'll be sure to do that. Can you make it stop raining too?
