Hi folks, sharing some pics of my '02 CB919. I've spent a year and change modifying it to exactly how I want it to sit:

Great looking bike!
My only suggestion is to relocate the frame sliders so they don't mount to the flange on the engine.
Sacrificing your engine on a parking lot tip over is not a good trade off. This forum will have a lot of good info you can find on that.

Thanks guys.

Mark: Thanks for the suggestion in regards to relocating the frame sliders. Makes total sense!

Howdy and welcome! Good lookin bike you have there.

Of all the mods you'll find on this forum, braided brake lines will make you smile the most.
I went with the Galfer's, but imo they fit poorly.

Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.

Rufftup, thanks for the honest review on the Galfers. I guess that leaves the pricey spiegler lines still in play?

Do some looking around on the site. Others have the Galfers, but I don't remember their opinions.

I ended up removing the brake line stays from the forks because the lines were impinging on the fender going over bumps. Search my posts and you'll find some pics.


The difference in the braking feel is well worth any effort.

I went with a UK brand brake lines, Venhill. Not cheap but the fitment was excellent. I replicated the stock front line setup. One line from the master split into two.

A less expensive option is G&J aircraft and surplus: https://www.wristtwisters.com/forums...nes-10307.html
Top quality, the best price by far, and a great bunch I have been dealing with for over forty years.
Check them out.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

I should have done more shopping around before pulling the trigger.

They seem to have a loyal following amongst 919 owners, at least WT's. This owner included.

edit: Their brake lines may be great, but their website is not. I must've called my order in, as per this thread: https://www.wristtwisters.com/forums...nes-10308.html
