Honda 919 Dual Sport Beast
 
The project has begun... The XR900R

Going to have to "modify" the frame a bit to give the drive chain a direct line to the rear wheel. I'm also going to have to stretch the swingarm by about 4".

I think he's a tease. had a 919 torn down in his shop and just set the forks in place. this isn't going to go anyplace.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Sadly the bike is still sitting in the same damn spot as the last time.

I'm doing some research regarding rear rim/hubs and that will determine the rear end that I ultimately use. I was going to use the stock 919 swingarm but it's so damn wide, a regular dirt bike rear hub will look downright dinky in there.

I had an 07 900 Hornet for 2 years,and traded it on a K8 ABS WeeStrom (but kept my 04 650 Transalp).

I've thought several times that the Hornet motor in the wobbly bouncy Transalp frame would have been far nicer than the CB ever was (for me anyway).

I suppose I'll have to keep an eye on this thread now...(Wonder how much a secondhand Hornet and Renthals,Varadero wheels/forks and a longer shock would set me back...?) :lol3
