Thanks! I was hoping for a '04+ model so I could have the adjustable suspension, but I'm pretty happy with the deal. Coming from a KLR, the 919 feels way smooth and has plenty of power for me. I think an oil and coolant change are in order and I should be good to go for a while. Lots of fun ahead
I still don't know how to dial in the suspension but I'm correcting some major problems mine had with the front end.
They way the seals are positioned, I got water inside the forks when I washed the bike. One side was leaking and my 1st ride this season was hell.
The bike was diving into turns / lane changes and was very hard to handle.
My tire gauge battery was dead, my tire was very low, my fork oil was filled with water, and my front tire is old.
Dumped the digital tire gauge for a mech one, tore down the forks, replaced seals and cleaned out the crappy water/oil mix.
I'll find out tomorrow how much of a difference it makes, but based on the crap that came out of the forks, I expect a big change.
I understand the 919's suspension isn't it's best feature, but at least it'll be better than before.
