thinking about selling the 919 dont ride much anymore with just 1 eye. i just had this all typed out and had a finger spas and deleted it all. so for now just puting this out here while i decide if i am going to sell. a list of mods done to come later. i dont want to part it out as of now. if i can get 6k for it as is i would be happy.
eye injury= gun blew up in my face
i know 6k might be a bit high but with all the goodies i beleive it worth it, if i cant get 6k for it i wont sell it (may have to lower the price and pull some parts but will some how get 6k
indeed sorry to hear about the eye. perm damage or? you always got the other one lol.
sadly even with all the goodies you wont see 6k total for the bike. these 9ners just are not popular outside of W.T. with that said, your best bet is to return it to stock as much as possible and sell off the aftermarket bits to try and recoup the 6k you need.
yea i can still ride, its more of a i dont ride ,much anymore so why keep paying every month if i sell it i would most likly buy something a little older with no payment
that and i am rdy for a change of engine. dont get me wrong i love the 9er but i think about a v4 or a twin, not as extreme as a rc51 but a superhawk or duc monster or somthing in those lines

Have always admired your bike, that's a great looking 9'er! I've actually considered selling mine recently, paring down the bike collection and I don't ride it that much any more. Have so much invested in mods though, worth more than the bike and it's hard to get additional money out of mods when sold on the motorcycle.
Sorry about the eye injury, I'm partially blind in one eye from something called anterior ischemic neuropathy, basically a small stroke in my eye left a dead patch of cells right in the center of my vision. Your brain does compensate after a period of time, I don't notice it nearly as much now after a few years as when it first happened. I'm lucky that I still have peripheral vision left in that eye, makes checking mirrors and looking over my shoulder when riding that much easier.
