Default Re: What's that bike behind the gixxer

"2. Is the 2003 Honda 919 on display? If so did the "long chain" get resolved (the 2002 model chain was too long, from the factory it was halfway through the adjustment range sitting on the showroom floor."



This is a joke, right? I can't believe Honda would let something like this slip by their quality control people.

I own a 919 and the chain does come as new near the end of its adjustment. There is still enough adjustment left and after 11,000 miles I still have plenty of adjustment. Some people just love to complain about problems they think exist!

Hey itchy... If there was any doubt I've got pretty strong evidence that the SV1000 is coming to the states. Check out the closeups of the instrument clusters on the motostation web site. On the naked model it is clearly Km/h and celsius, on the "s" model it is mph and fahrenheit baby. I can't think of another major market besides us that uses MPH and fahrenheit.



And about the chain, there's no whining here. Even Honda agrees its a problem and has replaced many peoples chains and sprockets free of charge. Have a bran muffin and don't be so defensive. I'm just doing my homework and trying to make an educated decision on my next purchase. Anything I can use to bargain with on a leftover 02 is good for me. But now with the lighter, faster, sexier SV1000 I might just have to take the risk of buying an SV1000 in the first model year.

Gadzooks! That thing (not the girl) is about 75% as ugly as the new Ducati 999.
