It's been a long winter.

Last fall, I dumped my baby doing gymkhana, and dented my tank .

She has been apart all winter for a "refurb".

I always figured that the previous owner had it repainted because he dropped it. He lived down a long dirt / gravel road, and I think he must have dumped it there, because the crank cover had some small rock scratches on it. When I dumped it in the parking lot, you could see the bondo underneath.

I never did like the flames anyway, so I decided to do everything right, for my peace of mind.


I ordered and installed a new gas tank, and front fender, and rear tail section from Honda in the '04 year model color "Matte Uranium".

Installed new OEM:

Stator cover
Clutch cover
Clutch cable
Rear grab rail 'gaskets'
Fuel pump gasket
Wheel bearings front and rear

Installed:

EBC Contour brake rotors front and rear
EBC HH pads front and rear
New sprockets front and rear with DID chain
Racetech .85 fork springs / went to 125mm fork oil


Removed:

Charcoal emissions canister
PAIR system


Had wheels powdercoated gloss black
Had grab rail and gas tank cap trim ring powdercoated flat black.


New sprockets front and rear with DID chain


Got her out on the road for the first time in months today. Awesome weather for it...



Before:











After:






















Now, I can never sell it, because I have invested too much

Smitty908, it looks absolutely amazing!
Love the color and great choice of crap to put on it!

Just the exhausts seem too big/bulky to me, could be the pictures,
I really like how the stock exhausts on 919 fit in the rear, and I'd leave
the rear end (licence plate holder) stock too for a more stock look.

Great stuff!

Looked bad before. Looks amazing now! Easily one of the best looking bikes I've seen in some time. Great job

Not that I wouldn't ride it the way it looked before, but this is such a huge
change, it looks perfect, and that matte green makes it look more "modern"
in 2014 but the lines of the bike still scream "classic".

Exactly why I always wanted one of those or a naked bandit.

I also have a set of peridot green body work waiting to be put on.

But mines going over a set of rather pinkish candy glory red.

Nice change for the blue flame bike. Especially the wheels.

It's always great to see a true labor of love.

Makes me want to buy a 919 and do the EXACT same thing.

Outstanding.
