Did some more work on the 9....

Nothing ground breaking here, but everyone likes pictures right?

Clear Alternatives integrated tail light, bobbed fender, and homemade plate holder.



...and then of course the flasher


Factory mirror removal, bar end mirrors, new "Death Grips", Vista cruise.



Front signals (courtesy of TROYAIK88)


Just need to score a M2 screen, and paint now.

Cool little plate holder you put together. How did you attach it?

Haven't rode the 919 with them yet, but I replaced the Harris grips that were on my Suzuki with the same Death Grips and it was a BIG improvement.

You will like them.

Thanks.
Took some time, but I wanted the angle to go with the bike lines more than just aluminum angle was allowing. It will also will give the plate some more support.

All looks great, good job!!!!

I think one of the things I liked the best about the 919 was how easy it was to do nice simple mods that look great.

Keep those pic's coming!

Here is my tip, take it for what it is worth.

The old mirror mount holes, use some plastic plugs that can be found at most every hardware store and auto parts stores - there are a variety of styles, hard plastic, rubber, see what looks the best to you.

Another approach is to put a allen head or bolt (painted black, or course!), in the hole.

Also, it can be made into/used as a mounting point for a GPS/Radar Detector -
