I've been trying to buy one from them for a few months but asking a question and get an answer is a real pain so I am interested. Can you give a bit more info about the triple?

no April fools here, although it would be kind of funny.

I just wanted to share with you guy some info that I found. I'm pretty close to the completion of my RC51 swap, thanks to Gary. Buying whole new triple assembly may be to late for me since I have 90% of what I need but I figured some of you guys may be interested.



This guy Gary, the owner of Omigracing, is building some custom stuff for me.
Long story short, in one of our conversations I've mentioned to him about the possibility of building something for 919. He ask me to email him some pics of what I want which I did:

me: "blah blah blah.....btw Gary, what would it cost to produce something like this for a group buy - 10 units lets say (see the attachment)?"

Gary: "blah blah blah.... On the picture you sent me, if you were to do a group buy, it would be $400 a set which will include the top clamp, bottom clamp, stem and bar mounts.
Talk to you soon and thanks!
Gary"


He is pretty famous in the dirt and adventure bike community for the work he does, just beautiful stuff ( link for his website and some of his work
, see photo gallery ------> Emig Racing - Highest Quality Aluminum Billet Race Parts for Motocross and other off-road bikes )

this pretty much all the info. If you guys want this price, we need 10 people who are interested. I'm sure he can built it individually for some more $$

Damn, if I didn't already own those triples, I'd be all over it!!
Hopefully you can find 10 people to jump on this, $400 is a hell of a deal!

Verify that he is doing the ignition mount, threaded holes to mount the gauges, correctly positioned steering stops, and the headlight bracket mounting holes. If he has a set of 919 triples and a 929/954 triple to look at, all of those should be easy to incorporate into the design.

I can't wait to see how they turn out!

Oh gawd, are you freakin' kidding me?



I'm saving for a Les Paul at the moment.
... and now you come along with THIS!?

I threw in some stiffer springs in my stock forks which helped the ride out considerably.
And while I really have no need to do the conversion, the option of retaining my original gauges really makes it so much more appealing.
If ANYTHING, I should be investing in stiffening up my rear shock for 2-up riding before doing anything to the front.

... but the 51 conversion just looks sooooo bad-ass.


If it's any consolation, I WANT to be "in"


...but reality tells me I need to sit this one out.

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

Are there any significant benefits from the RC51 forks compared to the post 04 model Hornet? Or would I be better to just get some Ohlins internals on the stock forks?

guys, I just threw it out there for you. At this point you are on your own for this one as I had too much invested in 929 triple and custom steering stem to start it all over. Unfortunately I asked about this way too late in the game to make it work for me.

I can't comment on the benefit of one over the other. A lot of people are perfectly happy with their 919s and have question why I "needed" to swap the front end. I bought both my 919s as project bikes first and foremost, so for me I had a specific idea in mind and wanted parts that looked cool (to me) as well as worked good, kinda like building a car into a hot rod. Why do guys build hot rods? Just because...
I was looking for forks and found a set of RC51 forks that had just received a fresh Lindeman Engineering rebuild at a really great price and couldn't say no.

If cost is an issue, and better performance is your main concern, then obviously Ohlins internals are the way to go. If you want to change things up and build a bike with parts from other bikes, the RC51 forks are an option.

And it gives the front end the look it deserved but didn't get.

bump.

looks like there is some interest for RC51 swap on this board again. Group buy never happened, we didn't have 10 takes. I did let him to fab my stuff though. Top notch.

I must warn you though, 3 year later and rc51 front wheel in good shape is basically non existent

Gary quoted 400 for the entire assembly for group buy 3 years ago, for one that would look lay style and performance piece.

and if you don't mind Zaq, is that a 600rr fender?

I'm deciding whether to go with the more bland RC fender, or to 'cut up' the 600rr and not be so bland....

and damn, that SP2 rim looks killer. were you ever able to get the rear on there?

Yeap, cbr fender. Rear sp2 is no go, had to go with cbr rear which is sitting here, waiting for my tire to wear out. Also if you want functionality and not just looks, plan to revalve your forks. RC ones in stock form are no good for 9er. I went with sp2 forks as they are a little better design vs sp1. However both of them need springs and valving to match the 9er

They are raised due to the top triple design ( see pic). Triple designed to swap bars to Clinton's in 5min.

Ummm... No - Stock gauges will not mount right up, aftermarket ones won't either. Once you go down the path this customized all the bracketry is custom as well. I have not looked at how the headlight bracket mounts on the stock Hornet but if it is anything like on my Hawk I imagine you will need to customize that as well.

lol

929 lower, 919 stem, custom upper and the stock bracket found on the link I posted. No idea what he had to do to get the gauges to work.

U have to drill the upper and lower triples to accept the wire bird cage frame, the cluster and headlight mounts attach to that frame.
