I have yet to make a proper introduction so here goes ......

Here is my 2003 919. It became mine summer of 2019 with a little over 8000 miles on the clock.

GOOD:
Yoshi cans
Carbon fiber fenders
Frame Sliders (Correctly Mounted)
Aftermarket seat
Fender Eliminator
PCIII

BAD:
CA bike w. canister
Handlebar risers
Touring windscreen
Stock suspension

So far I have just ridden her a few hundred miles and bought a few parts, yet to be installed:
Renthal Ultra Low bars, gel grips
Aftermarket mini fairing w/ screen
Recraft center stand (Ukraine)

Tire Wheel Land vehicle Vehicle Fuel tank

Well, howdy! Congrats on what appears to be a good find. The center stand is a good call, imo. I put a Recraft on one of my 919's and it's a well-made item.

One more thing on the stand- the bolt holes for the stop may be full of gunk and grit. I ran a tap through them and flushed them with some brake cleaner, then added a dab of blue loctite for security. Also glued a rubber washer to the stop (the night before install) to eliminate the CLUNK! when the stand hits it. Yes, I'm ocd.

It's tempting, while lying on your back looking up to install the stop first, but do the stand first. amhik

Welcome!
Nicely sorted and clean '03.
The renthal ultra lows will be a huge change compared to your original bars w/ risers.
Post some more pics when you install those planned upgrades!
