1 year anniversary

As of today I have now owned my 919 for a year now.

The first picture is what the bike looked like when I got it, and the other three are now.

Bought the bike at 13,975 and I am now at 29,895 which means I did 15,921 miles in a years time.

Upgrades since getting the bike:
Renthal UL
Progrip 719 grips
Barend mirrors
F18 shield
Sato CF pipes
Road2 rear and soon to be power 2 front
SS brake lines
EBC HH pads front and rear
Upgraded headlight
Red Neons
K&N air filter
K&N oil filter with AMS oil
45 rear sprocket
VZM2 D.I.D. 530 chain
Pair block off plates
NGK High out put spark plugs
Frame sliders
Aftermarket foot pegs
Wheel stripes
PIAA Horn
Blacked out a few parts

lol... so for your 2 year announcement, you'll have 'forced induction' on the list of mods?

30,000 mile 919 survivor. No plans of stopping the abuse any time soon.

Maybe if i get some more money. And talk to TK. I didn't add to the list that I have the Corbin, arrow signals, back off brake modulator, flapper mod, and fender eliminator. (they were already done when I bought the bike)

Also have the F4i clutch cable swapped in

I know my miles are nothing compared to yours scrat, but I have only been riding for 2 years and I am a full time student and working full time.

What's the benefit in this? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I like what you've done. Personalized, but not over the top.

Did you notice any difference with using the HO NGK plugs?

Noticed some difference with the plugs, helps burn more fuel and not just dump it out the back.

The F4i clutch cable is what the mechanic had that would fit, and it is a straight cable, and feels much better than stock. Also it was less than $25 to install. My old cable shredded while riding and I had to limp it to the mechanics.

Aha, so a necessity mod rather than a performance or bling mod. Gotcha.

With the plugs burning fuel more efficiently, do you notice you not smelling like the inside of an exhaust as much? (people at my office are starting to not like me being near them. )

The clutch cable started out of necessity, but ended working out to be better anyway. I think I saw a similar cable on Rob Tharaslsons bike.

I do not smell nearly as bad as before. My friend has a 919 and always smells worse than me. Not going to say I don't smell, but not as bad.
