was reading this mag (australia road rider or something) about how we always want to update or bikes but just freshing them up might do the trick for a while (Ten steps to make your bike feel new again No 66 Pg 62)
So I did!
list of things to do I had saved up in my shed.
1. install PCIII
2 install Side mount exhaust
3. install PAIRS plates
4. install Frame sliders
1. PcIII fitted, had to drop the hole bottom tail section to get to the ECU, NO FUN but the fitting was easy, just followed the instructions and it works great!
2. I had to remove the rear exhaust pipes to let the tail section drop to allow access to the ecu for the above install, so glad I did this all at once. Had to jack up the bike to get the Y piece out from between the swing arm and the rear shock. this meant removing the rear shock all together!
then I just had to remove the existing headers and install the new ones!
only problem was it was hitting the passanger pegs and there was no clear way hold up the rear section of the pipes and stop pressure on head leading to the exhaust being ripped off! But if figured I would never get a center stand anyway to I used that as the mounting point and it is strong as fuck! I can't move it away from the peg so its not going to vibrate and cause damage....
tried putting the can on sideways but it just looked wrong...
So side mount exhaust done!
3. PAIRS plates, easy install, had to move the coil but I think someone here said to do that anyway.
alot comes out for what goes back in.....
I blocked off the opening on the clean air side of the air box as well, as well as for the flapper mod
4. frame sliders where the easyest! simply unbolt the origenal bolt and replace bolt with new frame slider attached!
So arround 5 hours (with drink breaks) and some parts I brought ages ago. I have renewed my love for my bike and riding it again!
IT SURE IS SHIT HOT NOW! AND THE SOUND! FUCKEN AMEN!
next on the list is a tail tidy with led indicators ( I have these parts waiting to come together and be installed) and then maybe purchase a new headlight, instrument cluster, clip-ons and wind shield.
P.S. thanks to everyone on this forum for all the info on these projects, without your help/discussion I would be probably about to sell my 919....
