OK - my ( new to me) 919 has been sitting in the garage, thinking "dude, when are you going to do something other than change the oil?"
So my hit list was the freebie mods.
The Flapper mod seemed like the easiest to do... so I did it. Haven't ridden with it done, but we'll see. The hardest part for me was finding something to jamb into the hose.
Next up was the California EVAP cannister; good god did that thing look like an abortion just sitting there.
I followed the directions on this site... but one part of the instructions that seemed to stop prematurely was removing the hose that goes to the PCV --- why not pull that whole thing out? I started to do it, then noticed it has a little bridge between the two hoses so I stopped. But that's a big honking hose just sitting there doing nothing (???)
I think I tweaked one of the seat stands when I last put the seat on.
Is this common? How soft is the metal?
Compare the left seat stand to the right one... the left one is bent.
Lastly -- when I bought the bike two weeks ago, it was missing the front fender. I've got one on order (cheapcycleparts.com ), but it's on back order.
All I bought was the *fender*; the guy who sold it to me gave me two bolts to bolt it back on, but I'm afraid there might be additional hardware missing.
(The front brake lines are bolted onto the forks... I imagine this might be part of the front fender retention.)
