Try replacing the cable - one that has frayed internally can look good but be hard to operate. It's cheap enough, even from the dealer.
I had the cable disconnected the other day, it slides both directions with ease.
chain caught my eye...
Mine too (every time I see the bike, was nice and bling,bling at one point)... pretty poor right now and can't afford a new one, adj is pretty much at MAX. I ride this bitch year round, def not into the "fair weather" rider type of bike ownership. lolz
That thing is no where near a stock '02 niner. Did you buy it that way and just don't know any different?
I guess my "sig" was intended to be a punn... don't think anyone got it! No I didn't do all the mods, some of them - am the 3rd owner technically.
Nice lookin' bike! It looks like your gear selector lever may be adjusted a bit low? Looks like it would hit ground before your peg feelers would, that would not be a good thing!
haha ... I have had my left foot ripped off a cpl times, but the geometry of my rearset(s) has the spacing off between the peg and the shift lever, any higher and it's a bit to awkard! Nun of you guys noticed my mounts and missing 2nd rider pegs (that would go down for what I HATE most about my 919!)
Very nice looking bike. Love the wheel color.
One thing I noticed is aftermarket bars which may set the clutch lever further away. I saved the pic and zoomed in on the cable and it looks very tight unless I am looking at it wrong. Maybe the cable is too short for the aftermarket bar configuration. Maybe you can reroute or find a longer cable.
Yeah, fell in LOVE when I 1st saw the bike! Honestly, I probably get a dozen nods, comments, or thumbs up from fellow motorists.
The renthals (can post a close-up if wanted) but I don't think the cable is short... lots of adj room on top/bottom points, IIRC OEM is higher anyways.
Yeah, my clutch is light... I also noticed engine sliders..
Very, very nice looking bike..
Thanks man... since have moved them to the frame just in front.
... how much slack do you have on the lever?
Now I gotta ask, what bracket are you using for the dominators + windscreen? Those look like something out of a Buell (XB9?), but if I remember correctly, their windscreen mounted directly to a housing for the cluster. I have dominators and the same windscreen, still need to find a proper mount or fabricate one.
Oh and welcome to the forum! You've come to the right place all the 919 info
3/8 or so... whatever the manual says. Just took that pic for ya, feel free to hook me up later.
