Yo, Mook. That is an interesting, uncomfortable looking 599. That seat is painful to look at. The handle bar is way too low. But those 2 things would be easy to fix. I like the rest of the bike. I like mine better. But that's not bed.
Do you have a 599? Are you looking to aquire one?
If you put those pods on, you're going to have to reject the carburators. No way around that, Period. Re-jetting that thing isn't all that hard. It just takes close attention to fiddle little details, and about 3.5 hours. Working on carburetors, is a lot like working on guns. Both contain small parts, springs, etc.
I don't know of anyone here that done pods on a 599. I'd call DynoJet. There is a very knowledgeable gentleman there, I think his name is Mike. He can tell you if pods will work.
Keep us posted, either way.
Thanx for the comment Sniper.
I just picked up a "lightly" crashed 02 919. It had a front end collision and im busy rebuilding it. Have the front forks and waiting for the rest of the parts to arrive from ebay. Im based in south africa so it takes time for the parts to ship.
My goal is to re imagine the bike and build it to something completely different to the standard shape. It was more of an impulse buy and i had no real knowledge of the 919 or the communities around it, and how good of a bike it seems to be.
I came across this image, and say the open pod filter style, instead of the closed airbox. i like the look of the open air frame though. this bike is more of a reference image rather than something i am trying to build towards. was interested in seeing if anyone has done anything similar in terms of the delete.
the bike is currently not running, but looks to have been standing for a few weeks (10 or so), but was running after the accident, so it may just be plugs to change.
I will be doing a build log, once the parts come in, although im quite worried what y'all will think as its going to be VERY different from the standard shape and look
