New CB 919 owner - looking for direction

Hey all,
I have always been a fan of naked bikes. I had a modern Bonneville and it just wasn’t sporty enough so I sold it and bought an 02 Honda 919. It was between the ZRX and the 919 but I think the 919 fits my experience level right now.

After putting on about 300 miles this weekend, I am looking for a few things.
I’d like a few things to make it more comfortable. Highway pegs is one. My knee gets cramped pretty easy. I figure I’ll just prop them up on some frame sliders. Anybody know which set of frame sliders is best for this?

Also a windscreen would be great. I have looked around on this site and it stills seems hard to find. I like the look of the OEM one or the Buell one but don’t want to have to custom fabricate brackets.

I also plan on doing the bafflectomy soon. Is it ok to run the stock map after doing this? I don’t have a power commander yet and don’t want to run out and get one unless I really need too.

Thanks for all the help!!

Check out TwistedThrottle.com : ...by What Fits My Bike - Honda - CB919 / CB900 Hornet, '02-'07 -

They have crash bars listed that fit with optional fold-away highway pegs.

They also have a good selection of windscreens, I had a national cycle F-18 style double bubble but I hated it and went back to naked.

Edit to add: Welcome!

The places my 919 has taken me:

I have been at twisted throttle and none of the windshield jumped out and said ‘Buy me’!!!
The crash bar setup but be the best way to go for the highway pegs though.
Thanks for the info!!

Try looking at Givi 600-series screens. The older 602 or 603 type fit without much intrusion.

I had an A600 on my 9er for a short time - it was just OK but not good enough for me. I've had it on 5 other bikes and it was much better on some (Suzuki GSX1100G, the best) and worse on others (Husqvarna TE610, the worst). The 9er at the time had stock handlebars on it at the time and that may have been a factor. It depends on how tall you are, how long your arms are, and where you end up being positioned on the bike relative to the airstream passing over and around the screen. The only way you'll know for sure is to try one.

I also had the Honda Sport Screen on it next, and that's not a whole lot different from no screen at all. It looks good though.

Now that the temperatures have dropped I'm adding a National Street Shield EX, the proverbial barn door. It's a little sleeker than their Plexifairing line, but it's still plenty big. I've had it on another bike (Kawasaki W650) and it does the job, but it sure won't win any beauty contests. Not that I give a rat's patootie about that.

"Keep on 9-in"
