Ditch, it's really easy to replace the sprockets. I slapped an 18T (+1 over stock) up front and a 43T (-1 under stock) on the rear and it really made a difference in the highway legs. Less than 80 bucks from Revzilla.Disappointed in myself more that anything. Let the devil not the angel make the decision, just too old now to put all that handling to good use. Rather have something with longer legs as I suspected all along.
Hi Ditch,Sold it back to the dealer today, thank you guys for the kind words. Would have been the perfect bike in my 20's, but not anymore. Riding it back there confirmed my decision it's just for me. Thank you all for answered my endless questions and offering advice. If you love your bike, enjoy loving it! Finding the right one is not always easy.
I do have my 919! For some crazy reason I just love riding it more than anything else. It's simple and cheap and for some reason resonates with my personality. It's difficult for me to continually appreciate what I have but I'm trying, will probably go back to a Blackbird for longer distance if I can find one, they're getting old and waiting for one that's been taken care of would be worth it.Hi Ditch,
Have you still your treasured Honda Hornet 900 to ride or did that go with the trade ?
Best of luck from us here at the GSX-S Forum, AND there's a bike for everyone out there.
