New to the Forum---'03 919

Thought I'd finally introduce myself, as I have been lurking for about a month now. I recently picked up my '03 919 and am loving it so far. It isn't in perfect condition but neither am I, so who am I to judge.
Sadly, no pics of the bike yet, but it is stock, so nothing is to be missed. However, this evening I did get a little creative with the plate mount and rear turn signals. Let me know what you think.

First of all, **** this plastic


And then the finished product.


Yes, I did mount the turn signals under the plate. It seemed like the only solution without significant modification or use of a different turn signal.

Overall, I'm very happy with how it came out, considering it was a free mod once I return the dremel to everyone's favorite rental store, Wal Mart.

I'll be around more and more to bother ya'll. Better pics to follow.

~Chris

Welcome.

I am not sure I like those directionals so close together any more than I like shopping at wall mart (I never go in there) nor do I like the idea of returning merchandise after you used it.

What was wrong with that fender anyway?

Welcome. Gotta be honest, the turn signals look heinous. I'd integrate the blinkers with the taillight and remove them.

It's hard to be humble at 9 G's.

Thats the eventual idea. This is very much a temporary fix, as I couldn't stand the plate hanging as low as it did nor the ridiculously wide signals. While I'll agree the signals are a bit close, there wasn't any other way I could think of at the time. New signals will be on in about a month or so.

Well,, it certainly looks "unique"... I looked at it a few times and I couldn't make up my mind. It's DIFFERENT...!!! I've seen some replacement indicators the size of gnats nuts and they make me squint a little too. It's more "where" they are mounted too...

Welcome to brickonwheels...
