need 919 mods, advice (2bros "stash" pipes?)

I have had my 919 now for 600 miles, and while it is in getting its first service I am getting ready to start adding some mods.

I am wondering if anyone knows of some aftermarket bars that will throw the reach forward and down a bit without interfering with the gas tank. I am 6'2" and the stock setup feels a bit tight for me.

Also, does anyone own the Two Brother's "stash" pipes? If so, I am wondering if they really do add power by converting to one can, if the storage container works well, and of course, if it sounds good?

Finally, I would like to find a quality undertail kit. I see some cheap ones out there, and I don't want to go drilling and cutting for a system that looks like poop when I am finished.

Oh yea.. heh, and bar end cafe-style mirrors... any ideas?

Hey thanks for all your help folks!

1. Renthal Ultra lows or Street Fighter bars are pretty popular.
2. Satos are better. If you want single can, go to the 900RR system. I promise you'll get more power.
3. Comp Werkes makes a good one. I went the homemade route.
4. CRG hindsight mirrors

I went with the renthal street fighters and CRG Hindsight LS bar end mirrors. The view rear vs the stock mickey mouse ears is amazing. You get a full view of both side lanes and can see behind center a lil too. I'm 6'2" and stockers only got me a view of my elbows and shoulders. The crgs arent cheap but super well made imho. No satos yet but that seems to be the only real choice for cans.

+1 to all of that! Especially the exhaust. Don't get Two Brothers, they suck! Check out 919.org and read the exhaust page under mods. Sato is the best if you want to keep the undertail (my personal favorite). If it is sheer performance you are after, switch to the full 900rr single side setup.

Bars

I just found these, they look like what I am after:

suburban machinery

They said they are polished stainless, but at $159 I better love 'em.

Hey thanks Mike... I didn't realize before that you are in Ridgefield. I grew up in Danbury, moved out here to the good weather in 99. Well, the summers are kind of long and hot, but it hasn't chased me out yet.

Say hello to all those nice winding country roads up there for me. I recall the scenery being serene, and the pavement often being horrible. Oh well, you can't have everything.

sounds like Sato's are the ones. Any probs with the carbon? Also, does anyone have Yoshi pipes? I always liked the style, but that isn't really why I am getting new pipes. Just curious if they are also a good option.

Unfortunately no, and my friends are routinely giving me hell about it. But with a 1 year old boy in the house now and a wife with her own priorities, it makes travelling stress-prohibitive. Of course I will look you up when I finally do, we can have a pint or three and check out your bike collection.

Yoshi makes some good stuff too. I have the CF satos and I love them. When you hold them up with the stocks you will notice an amazing weight difference. I have no probs with them. A bonus is that they do not really get hot so I can put my saddlebags on for long trips with no prob.

i;ve got the LSL sport tourer bars on mine. don't be fooled by the name they are low and about 1.5 inches wider. they are also flat black and look great. by the way, I am 6'3" and wanted lower bars for the same reason.

i ordered them on-line from spiegler. total cost with new grips and bar ends was around $80. www.spieglerusa.com

somone on this forum has a listing of different handlebar brands with their dimensions. can't remember who.

Smile Pipes

I've got Yoshi pipes on mine. Just about ready for my first oil change, and still have the 30 day tag. I'm not sure on performance differences between brands or stock as mine came with the Yoshi's from the dealer, but they sure do look and sound nice....
