Hello and good morning all!

I first introduced myself here in early 2013 when i bought myself a 600 Hornet, since then iv had a few other bikes in between but always liked how much 600 handled and how nice it was to ride so when i found this hornet 900 for sale at the right price i had to have it!

Yesterday (Saturday) was the first day it has seen proper daylight since being bought by myself last year and then stripped completely down to do my touches to it, cleaned, serviced etc.

Bit of back ground info, it is a F5 model 900 Hornet registered in early 2007 on a '56' plate and when i first bought the bike it was silver. First owner was the police as it was used as some sort of surveillance bike so thankfully only the seat base for pillion was butchered for some sort of device underneath but did mean that it has 50,000 on the clock but being police has been well serviced (thankfully managed to get all history with it) and runs brilliantly!

The bike has completely changed since being in my ownership most obvious is the colour change to white with black decals (all lacquered over).

I have had it fully serviced by myself including fitting a BMC air filter, i had race cans fitted but cut them down a good 3-4 inches as i wasn't keen on the super long cans poking out of the back! Also replaced the Y piece with a decat stainless version.
It has also had the Pair valve blanking plates fitted bought from a chap in Canada and i have removed the airbox flap.

It has braided hoses all round and +2 tooth rear sprocket.
It has a Wilburs rear shock fitted and Wilburs 9kg front springs fitted into my CBR600 Sport fully adjustable front forks and dropped in the yoke 5mm.
CBR600 Sport carbon front fender.
Chrome radiator grill and a few bits powder coated in graphite.

Im sure i have missed a few things off!
As long as the weather is nice next weekend i will also of had a MOT put on her and some Tax.

Thanks all for reading!

Looks nice in white !
You've done a good job there, it certainly doesn't look like a 50,000 mile bike :clap
