Windscreen, Bars and frame sliders

I have a couple questions. I am thinking about getting the Givi A755 windscreen. Any ideas for anything better? I want a more aggressive riding position without getting too wide. I am considering the suburban-machinery handlebars unless anybody had any other suggestions. I have been recommended the Sato frame sliders. Does anybody have frame sliders on their 919? Any recommendations? Thank you.

I'm sure more knowledgable people will put in their two cents, but here's mine.

Depending on your height the windscreens can go either way. I'm 6'2" and had a F-16 tall screen on. Did a good job of keeping the wind off of my chest and you could duck down below it, but it made the wind noise in my helmet uncomfortable.

I think the SATO sliders have been updated to the frame mounted position, but DON'T get any of the old ones. LOS or Motivation sliders are about the same price and mount to the frame, rather than to the engine. (Do a search for pictures)

Renthals seem to be the handlbar of choice around here

I have a Givi 755. Seems to be a lot higher than most of the other ones, but it does get the wind up over my head since I installed the Renthal Ultra-lows.

Also installed some old Napoleon bar ends I had laying around for 30 yrs. They stick out quite a bit, but at least I can see behind me now.

Thanks for your "two cents". I checked out the motivation website and it appears as though they don't provide them anymore. If you go to http://www.motovationusa.com/CBR919.html and select "Click here to buy from distributor's website" it says that no records were found matching your request. Maybe I will look elseware for them.
I will do some more research on the renthal bars. They seem kind of long, but I suppose I could cut off the ends.
Thanks again.

"They seem kind of long, but I suppose I could cut off the ends."


The majority of people here who install the Renthals have cut them down.

I'd call motivation as well, or at least e-mail them. I picked up my LOS sliders off of another member on here.

Keep an eye on Ebay as well, not alot of variation of 919 parts, but enough to keep you looking. I picked up my new carbon SATO's for about 1/2 price and a few other parts pretty cheap on there as well.

Another good site for mirrors,signals and other odds and ends is PJ's Parts. Great people there

Have a pair on my 919, very nice. Just ordered a set for the 599 as well.
