I just introduced myself the other day in the new member forum... thanks for the welcome!
I have had designs on a 919 for sometime, and I finally scored the bike. I bought an 04 and I planned to ride until december or so before I started down this road but my hand was forced... My good friend (since high school) is the Motorcycle guy from the TV show on Velocity called Fantom Works.
After seeing the bike on Sunday he went to town...
Bike started like this
We are in this state after half the day Sunday
Now that you've seen the state here is the plan:
I have acquired & installed 929RR front calipers, rotors, and master cylinder
I have a 929RR rear caliper on the way
I plan to:
Pull motor, and detail, possibly powder coating valve cover and oil pan.
Install Pairs block off plates.
Pull and bead blast the swing arm, rider, and passenger pegs & mounts, and the swing arm mounts then have them powder coated black.
Ohlins Rear Shock
Tank & Tail stripped and painted VW Vortex Blue
Remove undertail exhaust and replace with Delkevic 900RR Header and Termignioni Carbon muffler
17/44 520 Chain and sprocket setup.
And finally here is where i need help/clarification
The front end:
Im planning on the RC51 setup that has been discussed by a couple of you guys Helimech, and HRC27
The CB1000R Trees are the way to go I understand.
Fork tubes... I have a line on complete SP2's in good condition, what is the bottom line... I see both you guys used SP1 tubes
Will I really have an issue moving forward with SP2 legs?
I didn't have plans to tear into this until the dead of winter, but since I have this to ride I guess ill just have to crack on.
obviously all assistance is greatly appreciated.
