Killer deal on an '06 919

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.

-20K miles
-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.
-Koso Gauge
-Renthal UL bars
-Aprilia Mirrors
-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.

Congrats on the new 9er. Looks pretty clean and some decent mods.

Hello and welcome! Nice looking 9er! You might want to consider moving the sliders from the engine mount tabs to the frame, that location has been problematic for a few over the years.

Perfect! Thanks for the advice! I will definitely do so.

Welcome! Would love to see more pics. Looks great from the one.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Just put some new levers and a fender eliminator on tonight. Wasn't fond of the chop job. Didn't look bad, but seeing the cuts on the stock fender bugged me a bit.

Also figured out I've already got a PAIR delete as well. More bonuses!

I'll get some more pictures as the weather here in Denver takes a turn for the better. Damn rainy days.
