Yoshimura carbon slip-ons with custom end caps

When I totalled my '04 919 I salvaged the Yoshi carbon slip-ons. I just put them on my '07 919 but wanted to have a slightly different look. I contacted Yoshimura and told them what I was thinking about and asked if they had anything close to what I was looking for. Then sent me some parts and this is the end result.

Here's how the slip-ons looked with the original end caps




Here are the new parts

Base plates, tips, and carbon caps






Side view, and top view




Here they are on the bike - along with the shortened license bracket, LED license plate light, LED turn signals, and a distant view of the Renthal Ultra-Lows, and Rizoma Radial mirrors.












The bike is still a ways from being complete. I'm still waiting for some parts to arrive, and some more free time to install the parts in the boxes that are piling up, then the bike should look a bit different than it does now. It's hard being patient waiting on international shipping...

More to follow.

Great idea MD. The bike looks great and the exhaust follows the lines of the bike nicely. Excellent Work.

I should be able to get some pics tonight. As far as removing the shovel, the entire thing was removed. The license plate, plate light, and turn signals are mounted on a piece of plastic bolted to the shovel mounting tabs. You can see the shape of the plastic in the first photo. On the new bike I cut it down a bit more and moved the mounting point from underneath the undertail to above the tabs.
I bent up the stock licence plate mount and used that to mount the turn signals to the back. It's not a professional job, but it seems to be working pretty well.

Roy, I'm still waiting on the LSL RC51 upper clamp. The folks at StreetfighersInc. said it would take 4-6 weeks to get one from Germany and today is 5 weeks so I'm going to call and check in later this afternoon. That should be the last part that I need to buy for the project.
The 600RR fender still needs to be trimmed and sent to the painter. I also need to check in with the powdercoater. He was sick for a while, and he's been out of town a lot for work lately. I need to call him today as well. He's a graphic artist by trade but he has a huge machine shop at home for all his VW projects. So I'll see if he can do the stem swap at his place.
Hopefully I'll have this project done before the end of the year...

very nice, a great alternative to the new issue of yoshi pipes that have the end caps removed. do you happen to have your old end-caps? would you care to share the cost of your "upgrade" with these endcaps? I love the yoshi pipes, but i have to have an alternative to the end cap.

Thanks!

I'll get some better photos of the side panels, the lighting in our parking garage is horrible - I got the panels a couple years ago from a company called Sky King in El Cajon, CA. I just went back to their website and they no longer have any parts listed for the 919. At the time the guy told me that the parts came from a company in Italy (I don't remember the name) and that it was the only pair in stock.
They're made out of stamped sheet metal instead of plastic, and have a mesh covered vent hole for some reason. They have a slightly different shape than OEM so I got them.

I do still have the original end caps. I agree with you about the new caps, I'm not sure what Yoshimura was thinking with that design. I like the original ones better. The cost for the parts shown, plus the extra rivets and rivet bands was about $280. Not cheap, but I had my fiance get them for my birthday! She had planned to get me the Radial mirrors and was upset when she saw them sitting on the table, so I told her "Don't worry, I have something else you can get me" and gave her the info I got from Yoshimura. That made her happy. She's given me a hand with all the mods so far!

The rear wave rotor is installed, and front RC51 wave rotors are waiting in one of the boxes.

Here's a couple (crappy) pics of the license plate bracket. It's basically a cheap piece of plastic slightly larger that the license plate, bolted to the tabs that held the original shovel on. It will be trimmed to fit correctly in the following weeks...

It was originally raw metal and I gave it a quick (and $h!tty) coat of rattle-can black... I'll fix it in the spring.

The rear gets daily use; the fronts are still waiting for the front end parts to arrive.




A couple other random pics:

Circuit 1 covers






Sargent seat (scuffed up from accident on previous 919)






LOS frame sliders




LED turn signals and painted headlight bracket & gauge cover






Header coating by Performance Coatings (ignore all the road grime - there's been lots of rain and leaves on the streets the past couple days)






Rizoma Radial naked mirrors, Renthal Ultra-Low bars, and billet fuel cap








More to follow as the remaining parts arrive and are installed.

Thanks for checking it out!
Mike

I'm not going to do anything to the engine, but the swingarm will get powdercoated eventually.

Those look to be the exact turn signals that I have. I noticed that you have them on the rear as well. I only put them on the front for mine as I did the CA Tail/Turn integrator swap.

Dang nice looking bike you've got there.

After trying a few sets of turn signals I really like these ones. The LEDs are really bright, they seem to have a much better build quality than the non-LED Lockhart Phillips ones i tried, and I was sold when I saw that the lights "wrap around" from front to back to improve visibility. Plus the shape is fairly appealing to me as well.

The wrap around feature is actually what sold them for me as well. Actually, they sold my wife on them and since she wasn't balking at me spending the money on them, they went home with me.

I had LP's on my Nighthawk and while I liked the looks of them, they were definitely cheap cr*p. Barely tightened them down and the bodies broke on 3 out of 4 lights.

Mine leaked and cracked too, they're very poorly made. A little moisture got in and the bulb blew...I tightened them just a touch to try and keep the rain out and they broke. Absolutely worthless...

A few variations of those signals (short stalk, long stalk, black w/clear or amber, carbon w/clear or amber), and many other signals can be found at MotoSport.com

They're about $10 less than I paid at the dealer.

Ouch, that hurts. I paid about twice what they are running on MotoSport.com. oh well, I wasn't able to find anything like these before I found these, so I'm still happy.

Beardking, I noticed in your signature line that you don't have a resistor for your LED signals. 9nineteen turned me on to this flasher relay by CustomLED and it works great. It's $25 shipped and no tools are required, just pop the seat off, reach under and unplug the OEM relay and plug the CustomLED relay in it's place - done. 10 seconds, max. http://www.customled.com/PRODUCTS/FL...sher_relay.htm

Roy, I just got a call from StreetFighters. LSL made the upper clamp and shipped it to StreetFighters. They received it about a week ago, but noticed that it was for an SP2 instead of SP1... so another clamp is being made in Germany right now and should arrive in 2 weeks. At least they noticed the problem before sending me the wrong part.

For the record, the folks at StreetFighters are EXTREMELY nice and easy to work with; she was very apologetic about the wait, even though it wasn't her fault.

So, a couple more weeks...

Mike- I know the SP1 and SP2 OEM triples have slightly different part numbers (last three digits are different). Do you know what the difference is? Just curious. Dimensions should be the same, but the powder coating might be different or the Honda emblem might be in a different location. ---Just curious.

You are correct sir, I do not have a resistor or relay to correct my LED flash rate. I considered going ahead and getting the relay (not EVEN going to mess with the resistor), but then I found I kinda like the superfast flash rate. I figured that since I now have smaller turn signals, I need something to bring more attention to them, so the supafast flash seemed like a good way to go. That is, when I remember to actually use my turn signals.

I know that the stem diameter is larger on the SP2, so I think the main difference between the SP1 and SP2 top triples would be the size of the hole that the stem goes through.

I found some time this weekend to put in the K&N filter, do the flapper mod, and install semi_gray's PAIRS plates. No more decel pop/burble!
I'm hoping to get to the PC III tomorrow.

I didn't have time to get to the PC III install - that'll have to wait untill the weekend, but I was able to cut the Renthal bars down. I cut 3/4 inch off each end and LOVE the difference! MUCH better than stock width for me.

litewatefitr, I got them from PJ's Parts. Here's a link to all the mirrors they carry:

I got the Radial Naked mirrors. Hold your breath before you click on that link... the prices you see are for EACH mirror, and the mounting adapters are sold separately...

They're rock-solid, have good visibility, look good, have amazing build quality and attention to detail, and the blue tinted glass is sweet! But that price tag will take your breath away! You have been warned!!
