Hey there, new to the site. I've had my 2002 matte black 919 since April and I've put on a little over 8000 miles this summer. I currently have Sato CF exhaust, PCIII, flapper mod, fender emilinator, integrated led brake/turn signals, lsl sliders, pazzo black clutch/brake levers, crg bar-end mirror, and pro-taper bars.
I've always loved naked bikes. This bike has given me a great run, but I'm just starting to get really annoyed with it. My right hand goes numb in about 15 miles. It does it the same with the stock bars and the pro-tapers. My chain is completely shot with 4" of play with 14,000 miles on it. I lubed it every 500 miles and cleaned it also. I have a 520 conversion waiting to go on wt +2 sprocket in the rear. Still have to order the riveting tool.
If anybody knows someway to correct the vibrations or could recommend some different handlebars I would really appreciate it.
