***SOLD*** 2006 Honda 919 Streetfighter

I have a 2096 Honda 919 with a clean title which indicates 24,XXX miles

The bike: Runs great, up to date on all maintenance. One of the most reliable motors Honda produced. I would bet this motor will run another 25k before a good servicing is required.

Parts list:
GSXR 1000 complete front end swap
Custom Rearsets
Digital gauges mounted on top triple (Speed, tachometer, indicators, trip, odometer, time, etc)
Ducati s4r seat, new Luimoto seat cover.
Custom subframe with relocated ignition
Custom undertail with integrated blinker/taillight
Yamaha MT03 headlight from Europe
HID 5000k kit. White light, not blue
Pirelli Angel rear tire 190/50-17
New pads all around, brakes flushed and bled
New matte black tank from '03
New EBC clutch kit
Honda Cbr 900 header with 2009 Yamaha R6 shorty muffler
Flushed and replaced all fluids and filters
Bluebook low retail value of the bike: $3859, high retail: $5,081. It has close to $3500 in extras.

The bike is 6 years old, so there are a couple small chips on the wheels, small imperfections here and there (light scratch under the muffler, scratches on the motor) but nothing serious.

Asking price $4500 Not really wanting to ship but if you want to pay for the crate and shipping then i'm willing to work with you

GLWS ... If I was way further south, I'd take it off your hands for sure. It's a mean looking bike.

How do you like the vapor gauges? Any problems with tach signal?

Considering them for my Triumph.

They're great! Easy to read and white back-lit fit perfectly to my bike theme

I haven't connected the tach but since it's up for sale I will this weekend when I get a chance. From what I understand there is a little bit of lag but it's digital so that's a given

I have the Vapor on my dirt bike, and agree - the Vapor is a nice setup. The tach does have a very slight digital lag, but it's barely detectable - in fact, I had to watch it closely while revving my bike very quickly to even notice it.

I was reading up on SV650 installs and they talked about it being very jumpy without a resistor. Just wondering if your multi cylinder'd had the same problem.

It wasn't very tough once I found the right person to help me swap stems.

I bought a spare 919 lower triple/stem. Take that and the GSXR to your trusty machinist and have him press out both stems, then swap them. The guy I went to was a motorcycle rider so he knew just what I needed done. He made a lip at the bottom of the GSXR triple so it wouldn't be able to budge, took 12 tons of pressure to get it in.

You can also drill the holes for your bar risers if you don't want clip-ons.

Installation was a bolt-on after that. Alot of people use bar risers and dirtbike bars, but that's not what I wanted to do. I flipped the clip-ons upside down and measured for my steering stops. Clip-ons are about 2" from the tank at full turn.

What width is that rear tire? Looks to be over 200... Maybe it's just the angle?

Wow, it's the angle then. That and no rear hugger and raised subframe.

I like it! GLWS!

I think the skinny rear seat helps too. Plus the exhaust remount left a lot of room inside the swingarm. I have a couple offers on the table, but I really want to sell this soon. I am relocating the license plate location a bit higher

I keep coming back and staring at these photos! I've wanted to do a smaller seat/tail section on my bike since I got it. It's amazing how the Monster seat and the R6 shorty make the bike look modern! The new front end helps a lot too!

How much modification was required on the subframe to make a Monster seat fit? Any pics of the work in progress?

I'll be back soon to stare some more!

Bazzy, if I had enough dough to pay for a road-trip up here and a flight back for you, I'd definitely do it. But alas, I do not

That was toughest part of the project. I basically cut off the tail and remade the subframe with 1" square steel piping. Lots of measuring and trial/error before though. All of the electronics sit underneath the seat on an aluminum tray I made. You can take the seat off using the key

No pics of the process, I was on a mission

Sounds like a project that's a bit beyond my abilities... I asked because I've wanted to put the new-style Monster seat and seat cowl on my bike ever since the new design was introduced.

You got to it before the rest of us could!!

I like the new seat but the angle at the front would have left too big of a gap between the bottom of the seat and the frame if you lined them up with the tank's seat "ridge"

And no project is too big for anyone!

Beautiful. I'll take your bike over mine any day! Wish I had the cash, cause I'd buy it now!!

Where in Houston are you? I'd like to check it out in person just because it looks so awesome!

I'm very impatient, I'm knocking it down to $3900 so I can sell it quick. Anyone? Bueller?

I installed some license plate lights today, and cleaned the bike. Surely this will have it sold in 12 hours or less!
