My Daily Commuter with pics

This Is my 2003 honda 919 (Nina) I did all this myself in about a years time with money here and there.
I didnt get the best of the best because this bike sees all seasons no matter what. i did what was in my budget to do.
had alot of this done and then a guy ran me off the road almost sold it but i couldnt finish what i had started...
if i had money money i would get the ohlins rear shock but the rebuilt f3 is great for my commute..

Mods Lists: (in no order)

3M 1080 carbon wrap basically entire bike ( i work at a sign shop and get the vinal below costs)
530 DID zvmx gold chain with 17/44 sprockets
G&J smoke brakelines
Woodcraft 3 inch rise clipons
CRG Blindsight mirrors
black ebay led 7" headlight with cb ring kit
Trex Racing frame sliders and engine guards
Ebc brake pads front and rear ( will be going back to oem)
Techspec tank grips with custom grips on side panels
MZS levers
Honda F3 rebuilt revalve to weight rear shock with Eibach spring from Ebay done at Sage Suspension
RaceTech front springs
Custom 7075 1/4 inch aluminum rearset brackets for up and back relocation
Honda F4i shift rod
Custom fiberglass seat cowl
Hot Cams valves
K&N air filter (from WT member)
Hi-Flo oil filter
Dan Moto carbon GP exhausts
Arashi Rear rotor
Pc111 usb
All Balls race bearings all around
Led smoke tailight
brighter amber led gauge lights
led strip front turn signals
motion pro grips
mostly everthing BLACKED OUT
pair system mod

Im sure theres more just cant think of all now... i plan on getting f4i axle and maybe (maybe) 900rr header single side exhausts setup...still debating
(shes running very good right now) and i might buy a top bridge and grind off handlebar brackets so i have a smooth top triple. i just put a piece of carbon wrapped .80 aluminum to cover holes for now because i wasnt sure if i would like the clipons but thats been a year now so i guess that answers that...and im gonna get a good battery any suggestions would help

Great looking bike. Love the headlight and the license plate.
I put a lithium battery in mine.

The pair valve removal mod was one of my favorites. It removes a lot of useless clutter from the head area. Really cleaned that area up. You can see clear under the tank across the head now. Probably better for air flow/cooling too.

I don't remember what brand plate or supplier. From eBay. There's a few about.
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/361428341883
These ones look good. Nice finish, also have the hole/recess underneath to take the reed valve bolt head. So you don't have to destroy your reed valves.
The stock pair valve cover bolts are too long. I replaced mine with shorter stainless allen head bolts. Probably replace these with hex flange head titanium bolts. I've replaced most of the OEM zinc coat engine bolts with titanium ones.

Very classy. Sure doesn't look 15 years old, does it?

Awesome looking bike.

[QUOTE]Hot Cams valves/QUOTE]

Did you really tear down the head just to put new valves in?

If you did, what was the total cost and what did you gain?

I've heard of cam changes and port/polish, but haven't heard about this valve swap before.

What was the total cost on that rear shock setup, I hear it's a few hundred just to get one reworked.

i like how you left the swing arm silver, but still painted the foot rest area black. I might do that too.

The hot cams is just the valve shims got the kit when i bought the bike. the PO never opened it. thank you for bolt size on the block off plates. Steering lock still works the bars are about 1 inch to inch and half away from tank still. great bars but i still regret not getting the apex clip ons. as for the rear shock, i bought the shock and spring for 30 a piece. damn good deal on both got it reworked for like 160 to 180 i think...i dont pay shipping to and from sage cause i get my work to ship it.... the reason i went that route is because i have to do things in sections do to money and family... if i had the cash i would have got the ohlins from LDH. but its good for me i dont regret whatsoever. the plates i make at the sign shop i work. i put reflective silver and just designed it the way japenese plates are the japanese kanji above 919 means honda. i just thought they look cool its not real nor do i leave it on the bike. but i would like to have a real one tho..
