I put the clipons on for a trackday, and liked it a lot, way more of an attack position... Plus quicker turn-ins. So I decided to keep 'em... Which is why I'm looking for a spare triple tree to send to a machinist to make a custom billet one without the bar clamps.

I love this bike, in fact it's my second 919, I had a 2002 (asphalt) got stolen.

Thanks man, I've run out of reasonably affordable mods... Now it's heavy stuff $$$$$$$$.

Ohlins shock... forks maybe?
Erion race cams...

But that stuff is so pricey it might not ever happen.

Thanks! The bars are "high rise" bars, and it just clears everything. Of course when the steering column is loxked, you can barely fit your pinky between the bar and tank, but atleast nothing hits!

How many millimeters did you bump up the forks in order to attach the clip-ons?

Yeah, thats what led me here, I'm having a custom triple clamp made, just need an old one to send to the machinist to get measurements from. So it will be billet, without the bar clamps.

I lowered the front end about 35mm a year ago, so the bars fit exactly over the gap, it was kind of a fluke.

Buell Cabon Flyscreen

Ric,
Can you tell me a little about the windscreen.
1.) Is it functional
2.) Do you recommend it
3.) Where you got it and $?

Definitely a solid ride - one of the better examples I've seen, and that's saying a lot

How did it handle at the track with the front end lowered 35mm?

I have the same windscreen i got it off ebay for about $70 shipped i jsut did a search for buell and then ducati windscreen and it came up

Mine is fake carbon fiber with a black racing stripe on it stock

Now to answer your other questions its not extremely functional unless you decide to press up against your tank although it does take a little bit off of the chest but nothing for the head. BUT i do definitally recomend it beacuse its relatively cheap the install is super easy and i think by far is the nicest windscreen you can throw on this bike bar none.

Theres my 2 cents take it as you will

oh and for more info on this screen check it out under the mods tab of
919.org

I was wondering the same thing. Is there any nervous/instability issues with the forks lowered that much?

To tell you the truth, everytime I do a major mod on the bike it feels a bit different, but after a couple of rides you get used to it, then you don't even notice it... Heck, just putting on Pilot Powers it felt twichy at first (more pointed profile).Plus if I did mess up the ride, it's just a couple of bolts and you can put it back.
On the track, it wasn't nervous at all... If anything it tends to dip into a turn quicker.

The screen is real carbon fiber. I bought from a guy on eBay that makes them for $80. It's really well made, I used to have a Lockhart Phillips carbon one and this is just as good. Very light too. It doesn't offer the protection of a full wind screen and fairing, but in a full tuck it does the job.
I've had to ride without it and you can really feel the difference after taking it off.

Plus I think it fits the bike really well.

Looks like a lot of nice 919's around here. I just purchased a used '02 with only 3500 miles on it a couple of months ago. Looking forward to doing some work on it and it looks like you guys have a lot of good info around here. Nice work!

Nice ride Barrosart...

I like the Yoshi’s… I have them in CF and am now contemplating replacing the end caps with the new dual outlet one’s…

My wife says the same thing about my 9er...
but when she hears the complements it gets at Alice’s or at a bike night, you can tell she's proud of it.

This guy makes them out of fiberglass, so you can paint it... The best part is that he makes a mounting bracket:

My first one was from eBay, just a Buell part, the carbon one was also from eBay.

Yeah I guess so... Plus we're supposed to do that and replace the baffle material after a couple of years, so you might as well change the caps.

Dude, loud pipes save lives. I'm disappointed with my Yoshimura's; too quiet.
I don't know why I didn't think to drill out the end cap rivets and pull out material, but I got it NOW. Good. LOVE thy neighbor.

Oh, boy, is this great!
