New 2019 in the garage!

So I finally got delivery of my 2019 CBR500R. Still on the break in period so can't give it a crazy review yet. But build quality is very nice, and the looks mmmmm mmm good!

I have just ordered my Delkevic 9" carbon exhaust that I am testing out for them to make sure it fits a 2019. Next would be short and adjustable clutch and brake levers. Then the rear seat delete cowl. And then it should be good!

you might also consider front suspension preload adjusters. Depending on your weight the front can be a bit soft, you can find preload adjusters on ebay for less than $40, they take a few minutes to fit and give some adjustability to the non-adjustable front end.

Welcome to the forums and owner's club. That's a slick motorcycle. Be sure to wear safe gear, and take a riders course if you haven't already.

I think the newer models (like 17+ or 18+?) have an adjustable front suspension stock. I imagine a compatible gixxer suspension is still worlds better though.

I mean the best with what I say. It doesn't always sound that way.

The 2019 is adjustable and has already been stiffened up.

I have been riding a little while, this is just my second bike and happens to be a brand new instead of used which is a change for me lol.
