congrats. how many miles. how much $? if you don't like the color of the rims, just strip em. probably painted wheels. then if you find a decent powder coater your set. hella cheaper then new rims.

Most problems in life can be fixed... Stupid isn't one of em'.

Congrats Anthony. For a while there, I thought you were buying a 919. I saw where you bid on one in EBAY. Let us know how it rides.

For someone who likes it so much, you'd think you'd have a grin from ear to ear. ...at least the wife does.
Ride safe & enjoy.

Yeah baby, my wife does look better than me on the bike, and I am looking forward to the next east coast bbq.
I am smiling on the inside.
Well I tried to get another new 919 but I was turned down for the loan, just cause of red tape. The insurance company had not paid for the previous bike that was stolen. SO I made some bids online but the reserves on Niners were too high for me. So I found this little beauty and snatched her up for 2900. Holy shiatsu this bike kicks arse.
1994 Suzuki RF900 with 16403 miles. The carbs rebuilt and cleaned, a full service including lubing and checking the chain, flushing radiator. It has an aftermarket Vance and Hines exhaust, a stage 2 jet kit<~~what ever that means , xenon headlamp, and flush mount front blinkers and brand new high output battery. The gentle man gave me the receipts for the work that was done.
I have had it for about a week and it now has 16861. I have been out almost every day since I got it.

Feels like it has a lot of power, and it handles like a dream. The 9er was definitely more comfortable (seat, saddle, and sitting position). This bike is broken in so I can push it and I am not afraid of dropping it, therefore I really can’t compare it to the 9er. What I can tell you is that I have been hanging out with a sport bike bunch and I did spank a CBR600 a Katana 750 and a Kawasaki 1000 on the straight away, but they all dusted me on the turns. Any who I guess I will have to sign up for cornering school before this novice is able to give a real review.

The RF900 was a shaddow bike. It kind of held back there in the dark. But a good bike it was according to the reports. You know, I read about your new steed and two days later on the way to mey son's Bball game, I see a red one that looks absolutely pristene motoring down Hollister Avenue here in Goleta. The bike has an unmistakable profile with the large flat tail and the 'grill' work on the side. I bet you will have lots of funtime in the saddle on that one.

the rf900 was my first bike. and i LOVED it! had a corbin seat which made it even nicer. was great on the road, better on the highway b/c of the weight. my only issue was the actual weight of the bike. it was a little top heavy for me. but it was my first love. hope you enjoy it!!!!

congrats on a great bike. One of the most unloved bikes ever made. I don't think suzuki knew what to do with it. Great bike.

I loved my RF900. I purchased my 1995 RF900 new in the crate in 97 from a local Suzuki dealer that had just purchased another's dealer's inventory. I rode the snot out of it for just short of three years before selling it in 2000. It was a great two-up bike and it had the value of being different. I regret selling it when I got my RC51 but I ended up selling it for exactly what I had payed for it brand new.

I'm gonna guess your bike had 10 to 15 thousand miles on it in that pic.

Cool we hope to find a place right out side of La Jolla but we are not sure yet. I also hope to be able to transfer to our store in Mission Valley if they have an opening but if not I will be looking for a new job.
