Question Fork bag on 919.

Fork bag or not? I was thinking of installing one but it would live directly in front of the radiator. Would this be detrimental to engine cooling? Thanks.

It might affect airflow to the radiator a bit, but not enough to really affect the bike much - especially since the 919 tends to run pretty cool anyways. Just keep an eye on the temp gauge and make sure it isn't climbing too much for the first while with it on.

Oh well. I'm way too old to worry about stuff like that. I'm sure there are plenty in the big-cruiser crowd that think riding the Honda is also.

I was thinking of some storage on the 919, but was looking near the tail. I'd like to have my jacket liner on the bike at all times, you never know when it's going to cool down.

Personally, I. Think it's a little fruity to spell gay, ghey.

You may want to take a hard look at the travel of the front end and components under hard braking before you even get that far.

Thereís a reason the tank bag is far more popular outside the chopper world.

Looks good! Apparently you've not seen any problems with engine cooling?

I can't see cooling being a problem. I'd like to store the jacket liner in one of those as well as some basic tools.

Pags1. I love your bike. Awesome look.
Got some questions.
Your headers, are they just painted black?
Where did you get that cage thingy protecting the headlight lens?
I've left the best for last. I got to know about those tires. They look friggin mean! Love that chunky, go anywhere look.

Thank you. Headers are painted with high temp header paint. The headlight grill came from eBay, someone in Australia. The tires are Continental TKC80s. I haven't ridden the bike yet since I mounted them. I have been waiting for the ice to melt in the ally and I have been working away from home for the last few weeks.

I only had it on for a couple of short rides last summer, but I don't believe it was any different than without it.

Pags1, pls let us know how you find your tires after a few rides.
Cheers.
