Nice man, how are you liking the Mivv pipes?

It's hard to be humble at 9 G's.

Lov'em.
Might be too quiet for most you. I haven't tried them without the db killers. I'm suspecting VERY loud considering the limited amount of packing in those sleek cannisters.

Dang, that is one of my favorite 919's.

What footpegs are those? and do you feel they give any extra leg room?
I noticed your headers weren't ceramic coated, and your headlight brackets weren't black.

They are Pro-Tek Slash Cut footpegs. More leg room? No. I have a 32 inch inseam so have I no problem with the stock rear sets and peg position. The new pegs do give a better feel ang grip than the rubber padded OEMs. I couldn't bear the feel of the OEMs after having my GSXR600 and CBR600RR (and my MX bikes). I like my exhaust system au natural. . .I've always liked the raw metal race-look. And, as for the headlight brackets. . .though on some bikes the all-black theme looks good. I wanted to stay with the OEM balance of the raw silver and matte black. The gloss black CBR wheels set the bike off. The triples are the only parts I had powder coated black. Keeping the headlight brackets silver and the 599 headlight trim chrome provide a nice contrast against the dark parts on the front end.

Well Done!

That exhaust system looks really nice, kind of takes some of the bulk off of it.

I took one of your pics and a pic with stock pegs at a similar angle,
looks like they may give about 1/2" more leg room, what do you think?

You just answered your own question!
Race inspired look. I remove the cover from all my motocycles. And, it makes me clean that area more. . .as you said.

It sure does look like 1/2" or more. Are your legs feelin' tight in the cockpit?

Yes, very.

Where did you get them? How are they mounted? Do they fold up like the stock pegs?

Kneedraggers.com

The rider pegs are a simple remove and replace. . . they fold. However, the passenger pegs needed some slight modding to fit and fold correctly.

Though a costly alternative, your best bet to being more comfortable are new aftermarket rearsets.

NICE! I was going to powder coat the air box / side panel covers black, but I might have to get me some carbon fiber!

Sorry if you posted before, but where did you get those carbon fiber covers? Anyone out there with pics of the carbon fiber covers on a red 919?

How do you like the bar end mirrors? I tried some and they moved in the wind and stuck on my throttle tube.

Do you have any of those issues?

97% are personalization mods that might lead to less weight. . .my 919 mods (like most 919 owners) are basically a style exercise, similar to the EMA 919 and the Brave Heart. I'd say the four biggest performance enhancing items are the exhaust, tires, brakes, and updated suspension.

Other than that, it has its own unique look, which is what I was after when I started the project. As we all know the 919 isn't about performance. It's about a fun all around street bike. If I want all out performance, my CBR600RR is THE bike to play with:

You have to make sure all attachments are TIGHT. And, I used LocTite. No problems with the wind. I even bumped them with my forearm. . .didn't move. As far as the throttle tube, you have to make sure there's enough clearance for a smooth operation.

Thanks guys and gals for the compliments. The 919 was a really fun bike to personalize. It provided a nice canvas to paint on.

Not single. . .I just have a very understanding wife and two teenaged daughters.

That 600RR is very close to a street going Formula Extreme race bike. $$$$$

Black bikes with carbon fiber accents rock!

It all came together nicely, great looking bike, love the wheels! Bet you're not done though, there's always something else that catches the eye and empties the wallet!
