Nice one Flat..
I Like the carbon Satos
Sigh... one day..

Oh and about those crash bungs... (scroll down a bit)

Your call naturally, but I'd steer clear of that type myself.
Or just keep the bike upright!

Lookin' good... Now you need a pair of Sato Rear-Sets to go with the rest of your mods.

Observation: Next time you pop up the rear wheel, position your work stand about 2" before the weld on the swingarm.

My Sato rearsets arrive today I am waiting for the sting of that purchase to subside, then I'll get a clear alternatives integrated taillight. I'm also working with a friend to possibly put a ZX12-R front end on. Everything is looking good on that so far, as long as all the measurements line up.

You're bike looks great. I think the 919 from rear and front angles looks pretty damn cool.

Sorry, still have to be the dick and ask what, exactly, there is to fitting a front end ASIDE from measurements?

Hey dude, what kind of sliders are those? Are they frame-mount or engine mount like the Sato's?

and a desire to make your great looking 919 really ugly.

(sorry, my stupid opinion that nobody asked for)

bab, I have all the parts of the already tricked out zx12r frontend, fender, calipers, wheel, race tech internals, etc, etc. I also found out that the stock zx12r earings will fit nicely in the 919 head tube, same OD, so i can use the zx12r steering stem, maybe. I have to see if it's long enough and see where the threads are. Haven't gotten that far yet. I will not use the stock zx12r fender, as it's really ugly, so I found an aftermarket one that is cool looking.

Ortonomics, those are motovation frame sliders, frame mount, not engine mount. I had the Satos, then I saw the scary pics of what they can do if you actually have to use them so I took them off. That was a waste of money.

Yea, no kidding, same here. I need to pick up some frame ones, and maybe I can get some ching back on Ebay for these brand new Sato's. Bummer, I should have asked all these guys before I bought em. I just had Kyle racing throw them in with my exhaust and PC order a few weeks ago.

Nice Rides guys,

WPhistory, where did you get that round carbon cover for the right side of the engine. Mine's scratched from the previous owner dropping in some gravel, its the only part that still is still rashed, that cover would be a nice way to fix that!

wphistory, where did you get the side carbon covers?
WildHair can get them from Germany but he wants full payment in advance for a part that will show up in weeks..
Chaparrall and Demon Tweeks used to carry them couple years ago, but have now been discontinued.
BTW, Bike looks killer.

ortonomics, the flyscreen on my 919 is a Buell M2, painted to match the body color.

justintyme73, I got that clutch case cover from Lockhart-Phillips (#4271072).

flatovercrest, the side covers came from WildHair....I think it took more than 2 months for them to arive after ordering. I couldn't find them anywhere else, so I just bit the bullet.

Some CF radiator shrouds would throw that bike into awesome overload...not sure I've ever seen rad. shrouds in carbon though.

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.
