Welp I've gone and done it.... New bike to the stable. I'm NAKED! pic warning.

Just picked up a 2003 919 today with 7321 on the clock.

Bike has some minor issues, little scratches here and there and a scuff on the right side of the tank =( but will be fixed knowing myself....

Bra is already off, mirrors are already gone, going to order new ones. But the dumbo ones had to go! The bike does run stupid rich so I'll most likely add a PC to hopefully lean it out. I also plan on keeping my eyes open for a cheap rear shock..... anyone?

Onto the pictures!

Welcome to the madness. I always liked the matte black ones. Red is faster, but matte would make a cooler looking Batman bike...

Looking great. I'm glad you found yourself a bike. I'm still trying to get rid of my VFR and pick up a 919.

Nice.

Is that the original front Hi-Sport on there? If so I'd recommend replacing it. Soon!

Congrats. You definitely did enough research into this choice. I don't think you will be disappointed with the 919 for your rides where the GSXR isn't appropriate. Don't be surprised if you use it for some rides where you might have taken the GSXR, lol.

FYI - If you want to keep that cut rear fender, you can make it look better by relocating the plate bracket 1.5 inches higher. If you have a little fender showing under, you might want to cut a little more off so that it isn't showing under the plate.

Replacement of the signals with smaller, slicker ones from a 2009 CBR signals (or other) makes a big difference too.

Have fun.

I see it's in stage 1 of fender eliminator progression.

In addition to moving the plate bracket up, you can remove the light extension thing and just flush mount the light. If you want some ideas, I posted a couple pics of mine. There are a few others here with good homemade eliminators.

Looks good, the matte gray is nice. Good pics too!

I plan on either doing either a undertail kit or I'll just cut everything off and build a tag backet.

I plan on doing cat eyes for turn signals.

Anyone want a bra? I'm never going to put it back on? Is it worth anything?

My Z is bone stock. The 919 has the PAIRS block off plates and that's about it. I just picked up the gsxr about two weeks ago. I noticed the aftermarket exhaust on the Z, but couldn't see anything else. Small world though, quite similar stables!

I agreee 100% Although it offers just enough controllable slip in 1st, 2nd and some of 3rd that I don't mind it so much =)

That is a nice looking set up there! I am truly envious! I bought the first bike because it is way faster and can be made even faster than it would be worth making the Z. Cars are fun, but I feel more at home on the bikes, and they are much cheaper and easier to work on.

I'd sell my Z way before I'd get rid of my bike. (GSX-R 1000)

Only thing the Z has on my bike is its pretty much built from the ground up by me. Only thing I didn't do was the side skirts and rear bumper cover + paint. Everything else from the hood to all the under hood stuff was done by myself. So it's kind of my baby.







I do wonder how my Z would do VS the 919 from a 80mph roll. Guess I may never know. =)

The down side to a bike is you never know when you might go down.
The down side to the car is you never know when its going to blow up.

Beyond 100 or so, the 919 would be toast. How much boost are you running?

Also, I'm not sure what you mean...are you wanting the rear end to break loose for drifting or something?

Yes and no, it's just a blast to come out of a turn and get sideways as you're pulling off like a bat outta hell only to hit another gear and get the tires going again. Even in straight line, the car kind of skips along, it's really fun.

I'm on a stock block running between 9 and 9.5 depending on how it peaks. its dialed in for 9 PSI, makes 420WHP and around 400 wheel torque.

Good safe numbers for a stock block. Quick enough to be fun, but not stupid fast. I want it to be streetable.

Had some fun with a dremel today.



Cuts like butter. I tried to make it look as factory as I could.







Turn signals should come in on Monday. =( Was hoping to have them before the weekend.
