Magnetic....

I've used one for many, many, many years and it's never been upset by a pothole or worse.

I've got the Cortech Mini-mag and it never moves at all. Much more convenient for refueling.

Handlebar risers

Any of you guys install a handlebar with more rise than stock? I'm used to a GS or KLR position; is there a better solution than the lift blocks that go under the clamps?

Nighthawk 750 vs 919

I have a 03 NH I'm considering selling to buy a 04 919... checked insurance through Progressive, 120.00/yr for the NH, 290.00/yr for comparable coverage on the 919, haven't checked Geico/Dairyland, etc... anyone trade up to the 919 from the NH, any opinions?

Wow, i didn't tell. I repaired the bike for 2400€ just before summer. The day after getting it out the garage i made a 2500km trip in a week to Valencia bearing 35-42ºC most of days.

The bike runs good, but I didn't ride too much this past year.

Hello!!!! Anybody here?

Sat 11st december, i made a one day trip of 765km to know "Ribeira Sacra". This bike is perfect for allrounders like me: we made from perfects RR roads to back B-roads (my favourites).

it's been approx 9 mos since swapping the Nighthawk 750 for the 919, and there is no comparison... the FI and the suspension in the 9er are vastly superior. I've put over 10k miles on it since May, a few 500+ days, lots of twisty riding, and I like it as much now as I did. I do recommend the above mentioned suspension mods and braided brake lines, as well as Pilot Road 2s, Shad SH40 trunk and rack from Twisted Throttle, and it will go anywhere, even have done a little off road, just have to watch out for the headers. a really great bike, and can be had all day long for 3-3500.00 for a mid 2000 specimen; 2004 and up have adjustable forks.

I feel this thread needs a bump. I went for a great yesterday on my 2003 919. There's nothing really remarkable about the bike, it just goes.

I reread the entire thread and I see I thought I'd lower pegs, get corbin seat, etc... I've done nothing. My knees got used to the bend angle and feel fine and my @ss has adjusted to the seat. Some straighter bars and a small windscreen MIGHT make life better, I dunno. Procrastination is paying off, I'm enjoying the bike the way it is.

The only problem with the 919 is that the CB1000r is now available.

Call me crazy but I like the looks of the 919 better. And it's paid for.
