Aaaahhhhhh Yes

So I just finished installing my new titanium Sato cans and power commander, and Sato frame sliders.

That bike sounds AWESOME. SUCH an improvement over stock sound and throttle response, and this is just from revvin it up in the garage. I can't take it out right now cuz I home alone with my little boy... But come 10am I am on it like a fly on , even if it is almost 100 degrees here right now...

Thanks again to Mike for hookin up the group buy. I am so psyched!

Also, two questions. First, does anyone know where I can get some nice caps to seal off the holes where the handle behind the seat used to be? And how the hell do I get those damn nuts out from inside the ends of my old bars??

thx!

Screw some screws in the holes for something to grab. Then find the release clips visible through the holes drilled in the bar there. They may have grip cement squished up in there so you will have to pull pretty hard in that case. There are two release clips on each side if I remember correctly.

Nice Sato's! That style bars aren't my thing but they look good enough!

Enjoy!

Rizoma sells grab rail caps for the 919. Our friend PJFZ1 is a authorized Rizoma dealer.

Why do you want to remove those Honda anti-vibe assemblies? You don't want to reuse them in the new handle bar do you? They suck... Buy yourself a quality set of Renthal or Moose bar ends to compliment the Suburban handle bar.

thanks guys...

I am actually gonna use the bar-end plug feature of the crg mirrors I have coming, so I am not going to bother with the stock bar ends after all. I will just leave them with the stock bar for if/when I sell the bike.

I just took it out for a spin, man is it fun. All pull, no lag.. perfect. The new position is perfect with the new bars, I have a long reach and it puts me perfectly over the tank but still upright.

Thanks for the link to the rearend finishing caps! I just ordered em!

Hey, you might use a belt sander to get rid of yours, but I will just get more comfortable with the bike and get rid of mine with some more riding...

YIKES!!

Seriously, is that a Sato thing or will any frame slider run that risk? As I was installing them I was noticing how incredibly crucial those two bolts are... If that might happen I might be better off just scuffing the crank case...

Did I mention, YIKES??

Talking

I just put the motovation sliders on my 06.

Also just installed the Sato Ti's, fender eliminator and a PCIII - may need to consult the project or LDH's site for another map because I'm getting some popping on decel - yeah I know nuthin beats a prefessional tune by someone who know's what they're doin over a cookie cutter map. Or maybe the PAIR valve thingy? Need to do more research but the bike runs great!

Very happy. Now I just need to try to kill the vibrations in the bars that cause my hands to go to sleep after 10 minutes of riding. I've already added 1" Motech risers, motovation bar end weights, switched to gel palmed gloves and have some gel grips on order. May need to fill the bar with sand or something to lessen the vibes.

Great site and thanks.

Heh, does that really work? Sounds funny...

Do you have any recommendations for good gel grips? That stainless steel bar is doing the same thing on mine... harsh. Going with bar-end mirrors so I won't have the option of weights.

Sorry for the highjack!

Not really sure Ortonomics. I read it somewhere on the project forums or cycle word, or Hornets Nest or sport-touring.net or stromtrooper's website or FZ1OA or ..... . I'll have to do some searching. But unless I find another bar that helps I may have to stop riding. There are times when I can see my hand on the throttle and I'm moving forward down the road but I swear I can't feel anything but the fire from wrist down - carpal tunnel survivor w/o surgery (maybe not much longer if I continue to ride though).

So Again I really don't know if the sand works but am willing to try it to keep riding , er, beginning to ride safer.

I read about Progrips, again at some site I frequent above, and decided to get the 177938 Progrip RVGS Street Gel Grip 719 1 $ 9.95 from ridegear.com . But too much cushioning will reduce my feel for the road and nuances in what the suspension is saying to me (doesn't everyone's suspension talk to them too? - who said that?) so that could pretty unsafe too.

I now ride short trips and can shake my hands at my sides often by either pulling in on the clutch so the bike coasts while I shae my throttle hand out or I simply take my hand off the throttle and shake it out while coasting. Sure It's still unsafe to ride with numb hands and constantly needing to take one hand off to get some feeling back into it.

I was into cycling until the carpel tunnel crept it's ugly head. I ended up riding recumbents from Bachetta - hey they need to make a motorcycle. Didn't Dan Gurney have a motorcycle project sometime back - here it is:
http://www.allamericanracers.com/all...ator_home.html
It may look funny but maybe that's what's in my future. Or maybe a

Good luck and keep me/us posted on what you end up doing.

Hahha... that thing is funny. I would rather ride my wife's honda elite 80 scooter than that thing (her's is white complete with flower stickers. I rode it a few times to go to the grocery store and was laughed at by some kids on BMX bikes. I laughed too because I know I deserved it).

If you want to be laid back I would think you would just want a cruiser, like that cool new Victory Vegas... if you are into that sort of thing...

Let me put in my .02 FWIW: The stock or any aftermarket steel bar is going to give you trouble. Treat yourself to a quality aluminum handle bar like Renthal which has a 2 mm wall. I can't guarantee the vibes will totally disappear but it will be a big improvement over what you have now.

I like the position of my new SubMach bars and will trade some minor discomfort in vibration for the better position, if I have to choose. Besides, the only time it bugs me is on the highway and I really don't like to spend too much time there, it isn't as fun as roaring around the side streets...

renthals did more to reduce the vibe than anything...

ALSO, wear gloves w/ a serious gel pad in the palm AND don't overgrip...

My $.02 and your probably being over charged
2 things that will probably help your hands... adjust your lever angles... and get your wieght off your hands (that can mean developing a habit of holding your weight with your back and abs or getting higher bars or risers)
myself I am working on developing the habit using the muscles but may find myself too lazy :001_smile:

Good place to Get Renthals?

Where is a good place to pick up the Renthal handlebars to replace the stock 919s? I would be interested in picking those up for my new 06.

Thanks.

I have a comment on bars/bar ends/vibration. I installed a set of AFAM Superbike bars, alloy, and went to my local Bicycle shop and purchased a set of BMX alloy wedge-type bar ends. Haro's, but any brand will do. PERFECT!!! Under $20 with tax and they are bomb proof.

Any other so cal commuters out there?

Go to Cycle Gear in Temecula,They can order them & they will be there in two days time.They sell for $64.99 bar ends for $31.99 total w/tax $108.50.
Caution:If you grind the locator tabs,you'll have a loose light switch & throttel tube.The bars are a loose fit to the controles.Without the pins you will have to wrap the bars w/tape,shim stock,or the likes to get them to tighten up.
I recomend drilling the bar.

These particular Motovation sliders that you link to are identical to the Satos. They mount in the exact same engine mounts. Motovation no longer makes and sells the 8mm threaded rod type sliders.

They have now come out with an entirely new set that uses a 10mm rod, just like the great ones from LOS. The only issue is that you must drill out the frame holes to mount these.
