How Strong Is the 919 Frame ?

Hey guys, has anyone here or know of anyone thats used a 919 for stunt riding? With an actual 12 o'clock bar, a cage and rear brake set up on there clutch side of the handle bar. I have been mess'n with my bike but, not sure if the rear part of the frame is going to need strenghtening. I think it is going to need some metal added to it to stop it from bending or cracking?

I have never heard of it... the frame would definitely need to be braced/reinforced, it's a bike that weighs 80 -100 lbs more than the standard sportbike with -30 horsepower . Due to the Motocross type stance it is easier to control for stunt riding but is a bit bigger of a boat to control.

IMO

Stunt riding on the 919 seemed to work for this guy...

Note that he is riding in a controlled area in a competitive stunt championship, and not doing 12 o'clocks down the freeway.
