I thought I read all there was to find on the 919. Guess there is more to find.

For all of us who had ever wondered. Thank you.

When I bought mine, the dealer told me to bring it back at 15,000 miles for a valve adjustment. I've always wondered if he was just trying to get me back there or if there was truth to it. I'll check the manual next time I'm down at the shop.

Honda shop manual calls for inspection every 25,600 km's (16k miles)

I have 33k km's now, not sure if they have ever been checked though so I can't say for sure if it's needed. Probably worth a check at least.

Thanks for the replies!

I've ordered some spark plugs and will have the valves checked soonish :)

Had them checked and all were within spec and each side was the same (.15 & .25 IIRC)

Just bought my 3rd 919. I've owned A LOT of bikes and I'm still amazed with the bike.

Light, torquey, comfortable, with 200 mile range. I dare you to find another bike that compares.

Can't argue with that. I'm looking to change things up a bit but I'm having a hard time finding something compareable.

Grats on the purchase.

The closest bike IMO is the 1st Gen FZ1, but it's a little heavier, less torque (more HP though), and has carbs.

Bandits are also close but way heavier.

The FZ09 looks like a contender but will only have a 150 mile or so range.
