A few simple pictures or words do little to explain what had to be done to this bike to get her going again.
- New tires fore and aft.
- Brake fluid, pads, and lines all new (fore and aft).
- Total coolant flush with new hoses, clamps, and new thermostat.
- Fuel pump replaced and new fuel lines installed.
- Injectors removed, cleaned, and re-calibrated.
- New battery.
- Tank cleaned (inside of course).
Very interesting story regarding how I came about this bike, the god forsaken shape it was in, and the challenge a mechanical novice set out to fix. Some of the blemishes I could have fixed but left them as is to remind me where the bike was and how far it came. I have tralier queens in my garage and decided this was not going to become one. Besides, in order to fix the cosmetic issues it would have exceeded the worth of the bike so that was a no brainer.
I would like a potential buyer to know that the work was performed by the best local mechanics in pensacola. They are employed at the triumph/ducati dealership. This dealership was chosen to support the triumph supersport racing team. Robert (Dink) Mcclendon owns the shop. Him and his crew build the bikes and motors for the triumph race team. I take all my bikes to them. When I picked the 919 up Dink told me that I would be impressed with how the bike turned out. I was. I've put 2,000 miles on her and its time to let her go.
