A few mods...

Well, I bought it with the Staintune exhaust and PCIII. I have put on the sliders, screen, levers, bar ends, CRG's, front signals, and modded the tail. I'm still planning on a new seat cover and ceramic coating the exhaust. I really like having the 919 as a partner to my ZX10. Here are a few pics.

Looks great Sike!! How do you like that windscreen? I think that's the same one I have but never got around to installing...

Which bars do you have? They look really good on there! Same with the levers and grips!!

I like the windscreen. I don't expect a lot out of small windscreens, mostly just a little wind break and cover the instruments. The bars are Rizoma's, and I'm pretty happy with them. Now I'm looking forward to having the seat cover done in December (Sargent did a beautiful job on my wife's 599, so I'm going with them again).

Later, Steve

The bars and risers were on my bike when I bought her, and the ergos are pretty good. The bars are fat bars, so something was needed.

Alright fair enough. Was just curious, because I personally did not like my risers that came on the bike.

Steve, if you don't want to ship your header off, check out Performance Coatings in Auburn http://www.performancecoatings.com/index2.html They do the same coating for headers and engine internals that Jet Hot does, and only 20-30 minute drive. My header was $180 ($196 w/tax) and 3 days turnaround time.

They have done a bunch of stuff for me over the years!!! And, they have a silver gray that is really cool that I'm thinking about. They are a great place to work with.

Thanks, Steve
