Any MV tech in Adelaide into mods?

Hi, I'm a newbie both to my 2006 910S and this forum. Loving the bike and had the major 12,000km service and dyno done recently. Very pleased with result but curious about replacing stock ECU in order to improve low end twitchy throttle for riding round town.

Anybody know of a knowlegeable person or persons in Adelaide, South Australia, who would be willing to share their experiences/knowledge to a newbie?

thanks in advance for any advice, cheers

I've got a couple of leads: one is a guy called Laurie who has a workshop behind Boltons Kawasaki, South Rd, Richmond; and the other is Neville Lush Racing, Victor Harbor. Anybody have any MV experience or recommendations re these guys? thnx

Bolton's is now another branch of Bill's Motorcycles.....

we went there Saturday for Aprilia / Guzzi test ride day.

Laurie Hepworth?

If it is then he is definitely a good guy to know for electrics....

Neville Lush....

dyno guy wayyyyy down south at Victor Harbour....

I've heard some good things about his work but never used his service.

Hard to find MV expertise in Adelaide. Do the basics yourself with the help of this forum - for tuning move to Sydney to be closer to Trooper Lu's

sounds like a plan...can u give me a bit of a lowdown on Trooper Lu's?

btw went to Bill's Motorcycles (was Bolton's Kawasaki) at Richmond to try to find Laurie Hepworth. Hasn't been seen in quite a few years...oh, well
