View attachment 6313 First post to say hi and introduce myself. Used to be a regular on the 899 forum for a while, but due to work and other. Commitments not been on there for a while.

Picked up my 959 3 weeks ago, traded my fantastic 899 I'd had for just over two years in against it and can tell the difference. Was toying with a 1299, but took the demo 959 out for a ride and loved it. My new toy was in the dealers with bit of custom graphics work already done and I fell for it. Few tweaks so far, Akro cans, seat pod, R&G front and rear spindle sliders and stand bobbins, Evorech tail tidy, carbon rear Spring cover. Yet to be fitted, carbon heel guards & clutch cover, yet to arrive- carbon front mudguard, rear hugger & chain guard. Ordering an Evotech exhaust hanger when they're in stock next week so the rear pegs can be removed. Oh, just picked up and fitted a ram mount for GoPro as off to the Isle of Man next week......

Welcome! Like you I spent plenty of time on the 899 forum planning on getting the 899 1.5 years ago. As soon as I found out the 959 was the same color I was hooked and signed up here. Great group of blokes they are - and congrats!

I know what you mean, I was going to get the 899, found out about the 959, all while knowing about the things 899 owners didn't like about it and... the 959 just made sense.

Great looking graphics! How much are the Akro cans for the UK version? They are trying to kill us on them over here! $3700 USD

They retail at £1400, but got them half price as as part of the deal from the dealer, sound nice and look better than the standard black ones. I got a better deal when I bought my 899 just over two years ago, got a set of the under slung Termis for free....

Can you tell me why you went for the evotech tail rather than the r&g? Considering you have r&g wheel bobbins
Am thinking a choice of either of them but can't visualise the difference.
Also love the akra cans. Don't dislike the stock ones enough to dole out the €3000 the dealer wants😡
