Wanted to drop by and say hello! I'm Carlo and just picked up what i believe to be a pretty clean 2006 919 last night. If I had to guess, an enthusiast of sorts owned the bike judging by the mods that are already done on it.
-900RR Single sided exhaust conversion with the Yoshimura RS3 can.
-Also shaved the rear pegs off. I don't know that I'm a fan of that, but thats alright.
-Renthal UL bars
-Sata frame sliders
-Chopped rear fender and integrated tail
- Aftermarket LED blinkers in front
-Heated grips (not sure of the brand)
-He said something about the cam chain tensioner. You can see it in the pictures.
-Pirelli Angel rear, and Dunlop Q3 up front. He also gave me the matching pirelli Angel for the front in a 65 profile, he said he didn't like it
-Came with a tank bra and bigger windshield as well although I stripped them off.
I do like the single side exhaust conversion, but I was thinking of making it a bit smaller. Maybe either chopping the can.. Or getting a different slip on all together. I do kinda like the high angle look though.
Was ultimately looking for a new naked sport bike I'd love and I came across this and couldn't pass it up. I've owned a few Hondas and loved them all. My pride and joy was my 2002 RC51. I kick myself everyday for getting rid of that beast!
Looking forward to making this bike my own and getting back on a bike again! I haven't had a bike for a few years now, Life got in the way unfortunately.
