Finally have a 9'ner

Got the niner yesterday and broke myself in with a 4 hour long ride home. Couple questions, is there a gas light on this thing? I just happened to be pulling into a gas station when the thing died...I thought there was an indicator light under the oil light for gas, is there a reserve valve? -No owners manual so I am coming here, which leads me to my next question, where I can get an owners manual for less that $40 on ebay? Any .pdf's out there?

Coming from an F4i, I really do not like the positioning of the bars. Thinking of going Coerce or Renthal UL's-anyone care to comment? I am 6'4 so reach is not an issue. Would love clip-ons, but the fundage is not there.

Bike was way too quiet, looking for an exhaust will probably go with Yosh even though I am not thrilled with the stubby endcaps, considering Jardine for that reason though I like the price of the Yosh and I had them on my F4i.

Been off of a bike for about 3yrs.... feels pretty good to be back.

Hey, whudup Crazy...

Yes, there is a low-fuel light...it comes on at around 170-179 miles for most of us... and no, there is no reserve petcock.

I run Renthal UL's myself, but bars is kind of a personal choice... If you like clip-ons and such, why did you get away from your F4i?

Being back on two-wheels after a break is a nice feeling, aint it?

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

I don't have an owners manual pdf but I have a service manual if you haven't already found one.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

Congrats on the 9er!!! I'll go ahead and repeat The Shadows question; Why a 9er if you like the lower bars and racer seating position of your F4i?

Congrats! I went for the Renthal UL's, so did my father with a 919 also. Never looked back, makes a massive difference.

I had 2 F4i's for about 4 years...this was 3 years ago. I absolutely loved my last one, but I am hitting 30, and I am 6'4, so i was kinda looking for something diff., cheap, and something that didnt fold my legs up as much, and it had to be honda.

Farab, what was the huge difference? i do not have any buzz in my stock bars, so i do not have that concern, would like to lean over more though...

pics maybe by the weekend, schedule is crazy now...

nother question, how do i adjust the back shock, bike seems to be sitting on the low side...

i feel you man, im 6'5, i rode my friends F4i and it was pretty cramped. 919 fits alot better, though still wouldnt mind dropping the pegs an inch

Welcome- I would advise motivation frame sliders, and Renthal UL bars.

I cut a 1/2" off each end of my renthals, but that is certainly more of a personal preference.
