Couple of 919 questions

Looking at an '06 919 at the dealer last week, I fired it up and had it running for a couple of minutes while I checked things out. Then I noticed some lingering smoke coming out of the right pipe for a minute after I shut it off. Is that normal for a new bike? I've never ridden a fuel injected bike so I don't know what's normal and what's not, or if that has anything to do with it.

Also, do most people refer to it as a "nine-one-nine" or "nine-nineteen"?

That last question, I don't know about that, I am reminded of an old Motorush thread about that.

Most likely it was steam... water vapor. Short run cycles cause moisture to collect in the exhaust. Since it's at a dealer.. it has not been fully warmed and been able to blow out all the moisture that has collected in there over the last little while. Cooler temps on your area will contribute to this as well.

I'll leave the second questioned unanswered. Let some one else weigh in cuz I don't much care what people call it..

I've never seen smoke come out of my 06. I think Moto is right.

I was a little stinky on the first tank of gas but it almost went compleatly away by the second. Pull the trigger. It's a great bike.

i'm pretty sure the little bit of smoke was not a sign of problems.

most of the honda dealer salesmen around here call it the "nine one nine". whatever you call it, it's one smokin' bike!

In the 2002 Honda brochure for the then brand new model they say "say nine-one-nine". So that is what I consider the official name.

Okay, thanks for the replies.

My dealer called it a "nine-nineteen". I called the customer service number in southern CA and just to see what they said. They told me they didn't know how to say it and I should just call it what ever I want.

So maybe I'll just call it a CB900F.

It's refered to as a nine-one-nine.
When I have to refer to the bike to non-motorcycle agencies(insurance & some dealers etc.) I say a Honda CB900F aka.Nine-One-Nine.Then they get it.

Make sure you call it a CB900F for insurance purposes only. ANd I'm partial to the nine-one-nine as well. Guess it's good that Honda thinks so too or else I would be goin against the grain... and that never feels good...

Love my 06!

Was it m51142 that said the 919 was going to be referred to as a "sportbike" now, And not a "standard".As far as insurance reasons go.

Progressive did not reclassify my "nine hundred and ninteen" (whoa, too many syllables) to a sportbike. They charged me $5 more than last year for my liability plus uninsurred/underinsurred motorists ($91).

Nope... It was not me! No change in my Progressive premiums.

OK that's pretty slick - found out after a year of ownership I didn't even know the name of my own bike - heck that was worth registering for this site.

liability only charges won't change much...

go try to get "full" coverage on a 919 and you'll see what i mean

i've already posted the details of several insurance agencies policy premium tables and it's pretty clear what's happened...

there are always exceptions to the rule, discounts for various folks, but the base premium was clearly jacked through the roof by several of the major players

I just got my beautiful candy red - Nine-One-Nine about a month ago, and and was quoted about 3000 per year for full coverage (it's financed). When I gave Geico the VIN they mentioned sport bike and nothing about standard. Allstate was only a little cheaper at 2700 per year. I finally got a quote from AIG for 1500 per year but had to pay it all up front (no uninsured motorist). I chose AIG for obvious reasons.
~ All in all I think Nine-One-Nine rolls of the tounge nicer.

just to followup on the insurance thing:

here's Rider Ins Company's 2006 Motorcycle Application (2005 was the same deal):
App showing 919 at "sportbike" and related premiums

not saying all companies are doing this yet, but more and more are...especially in N.J. which is notorious for high rates

it clearly spells out the 919/CB900F as a 'sportbike' and the associated rates:
$1289 for full coverage on an '02 for folks age 35 and older, Liability only $169

this rating system also includes the 599 as a "sportbike"

there are few other options in Jersey at the moment but it's getting better...thing is, it's a bunch of no-name companies - State Farm is dropping folks (even if they have other ins w/ SF)

and this is for a "clean record", don't even want to think what they would charge if you happen to have accidents or tickets

Find a company that insures your car and bike. It's discounted since you can only drive one. CSAA expanded its Cali base to Nevada/Utah and offer towing. The state's minimum coverage is a joke, motorcyclists need higher coverage in case you are hurt by an un/der-insured driver. My clean record is $800/year for $500K.
