Took a while to get the fuel into the system, but once it was there she fired right up. Now starts right away with no choke and idles fine. Took her down the block and had my first taste of how fast this bike is.
Got some new tires and just waiting to get them mounted now.
Any must do mods? I'm a stock bike kinda guy, but you never know what's essential.
Honestly, no mods are essential when it comes to the 919...lol. Honda got it right the first time I guess...lol.
although, a CBR 900 exhaust will drop about 18 pounds off your bike...and the CBR rims look muuuch better imho.
