She's Finished!

Well I think i'm done modding her for a long while! Just need a new rad cover and MAYBE a fresh coat of paint(next year) and that's it for any mod list!

Last year I did the Buell headlight and windscreen, this year was powder coat, chains and sprockets, brake pads and some tuning and tightening! Also finally got my 900rr/F3 wheels on . I also came across a solo seat cover as well!

I have a set of front rotors for sale and a 919 rear rim ready to go to a new home! PM for details!

Thanks to HeliMech for the expert mechanical work! You're the man!

List of Mods -

Flapper Mod
900rr header with Danmoto Conical GP Can w/baffle
900rr/F3 Wheel Swap
PC3 w/Custom Map
Buell XB Headlights w/Fly Screen
Pairs Plates
LED signals/Under tail w/LED Plate Bolts
Renthal U/L Gold
Gold Chain 530 Setup
Solo Seat Cover
Tech Spec Tank Pads
Ebay Grips
Powder Coat - Long list of things!

Happy Riding!

That's a damn sharp looking ride, Sean.

Here is another shot of the headlight set up. I had to make ...

- two press fit bushings for the 919 headlight monuts.

- two spacer bushings to center the buell headlight.

- drilled out the XB headlight mounts to match the bushings.

- then used two long 10mm bolts and lock nuts to bolt it up.

- the wiring is all hooked up inside a 5" wide tube of heatshrink. Shrunk tight and ziptied up under the cluster.

- the windscreen brackets are just mild steel bend 90 degrees with a twist to match the windscreen. They have 1" long slots so u adjust the anhle of the screen as it rest against the cluster.

Damn. That's nice! Just when I think I'm done modding, I get more ideas! Not gonna do your headlight setup, which I love, but may have to do the rims and powder coat all the silver pieces. Then a paint job. Well, all will have to wait till next year. This years' budget is blown and can't do any more after the latest goodies arrive in the mail.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

That's a beautiful machine there bro!! I like the clean, tough look!! Very well done

Some inverted forks would boost the attitude of the machine...

I have a question for Ya guys....

Why the Buell headlight setup?

...I mean the lights on my 05 SUCK! They aren't much for night riding and the inner chrome reflector stuff gets hot and starts cracking and flaking(even worse with the HID kits)...

..Yet I've seen a few guys (on here and other sites) install them on the 919's, I can understand wanting to ditch the huge single 919 cyclops...But why the Buells?

Just wondering, anyway, nice bike bro!

I'll chime in on this .... but first a little back ground story for fun.

Seans '05 919 has a rebuilt title. I bid on it at auction for my next project bike approx 4.5 years ago but lost out to a local bike shop that i frequent. They scabbed it back together with some parts that I helped them source through WT and was then sold to the public and went through a few owners before Sean picked it up and found WT ... leading him to me and the bikes history.

So even though I lost out on the auction to buy the bike the first time ... a few years later it found its way into my garage for me to give it some love anyway. =)

We got talking about what he wanted to do to the bike ... and he mentioned dual headlights ... 900rr low mount and a few other things.

I myself really like the Buell headlight setup, I actually had a set for my 919 but went in a different dirrection eventually with the 599 headlight .

The light output from the XB's might not be the greatest (equal to the stock 919) but the build quality of the headlight assembly is solid ... especially when comparred to other cheap/chinese off the shelf dual headlight setups ... and they match the dual globe design of the 919 cluster as well. Throw in the fact that there is a OEM matched windscreen available to put some icing on the cake, in my opinion it makes for a great parts set up on the 919.

My favorite part of Seans build is the "what is it?" factor since it ties a few different bike designs into one blacked out mad max machine.

I used some foam padding and shapped it to the size of the grab bar holes. Once I was ok with fit I wrapped it in carbon fiber. It does the job and was super cheap.
