Need black side covers, rear cowl, possibly tank.

New to the forum, just bought a 2007 919 with 4700 miles but needs a little work.

It's missing the black side covers, the rear cowl/fender is broken in several places and the tank is dented. Not sure if cowl and tank can be fixed and I'd rather buy used but in good shape. Color does not matter.

Thanks

There's a fine gentleman on here that has a hydro-dipped Carbon fiber tank and fender which will work fine but does have a couple scratches on it. I think he listed both for like $100? Roughly.

Hit him up and see if that's something your in to.

I did see that, but I'm not really into the dip look. I need to ask around locally to see how much it would cost to remove, re-do bondo on tank and repaint. Thanks Chickmagnick.

I'm sure it wouldn't be too expensive but I've also seen some others on eBay for not TOO much more. Up to you but I'll keep a look out for you if I find a deal.

I have been looking for a tank for awhile now... and the ones on ebay have been there for-evah! Sellers keep reposting the same ones, since nobody seems to want to buy a banged up and beat up tank. Then theres this other guy with a tank with "lo miles", since they dropped the bike on Day One, and dented it, technically with lo miles. Oh, and hes asking over $200 for it. Big dent on the right side. I did offer him $100, he came back at me with "a new tank will cost you over $700, so this is a STEAL! Any body shop could fix it for $50". Needless to say, wrong on both points....

Now, that being said, I got SUPER lucky 2 weeks ago on Craigslist. Guy had a 919 with a failed factory liner, and they replaced the tank. He put the old one in the garage, forgot about it for a few years, and found it recently and put it up on Craigslist. $100 and 450 miles round trip (he wasnt willing to ship it), and I have a like new tank, 2006 Glory Red, color matched to the rest of my bike.

I will be posting pics of my before and after bike shots.... and also posting a thread for the tank lining rejuvenation, hope to do it next weekend.

Sweet, I guess I'll take a look on craigslist as well. Yeah, I don't mind driving a bit for a good deal myself. Thanks for the suggestion Music Junkie.

I'm going to ask around locally to see how much it would be to fix up my tank and cowl first before I look into that type of option but thanks for the offer.
I did find some used side covers on Ebay, just waiting on those to be delivered. I'm still in need of a left oem mirror.
