Default F4 Unknown Model.

I'm making myself familiar with the F4,so when the dream hopefully becomes reality,I will be happy with the model I have selected.

I found this one on youtube.My guess is,along with some other mods,the owner has fitted the rims from an earlier model to this bike.Or was there an "in between" model with S rims on the 1000R?

The silver 5 stars are from an S. Interesting as I've not seen anyone "downgrade" their wheels from the lighter R etc wheels, as the S wheels are quite a bit heavier than the ones later models use. Having said that, I am sure I am not the only one that thinks the silver wheels LOOK much better (especially with the (best ) red/silver paint scheme, even if they add to the unsprung weight, which is never something people would usually want to do.

Here in the US, we are taught in grade school that gold stars are always better than silver stars. As much as I like my silver stars, I'd swap them for the gold marvics in a heartbeat.

I have a spare set of stars which are currently fitted to my 312. I still have the oe lightweight wheels.

The difference to an average rider like me on the road is sweet FA...

No, but I do have gold magnesium stars fitted to my 2007 F4 1000R...I'll look for a pic of that. There is a massive difference in quality ..The Marvics are pure class.

thanks for compliment. : )

joe

ps I've change the panpipes since this shot ...for silver coloured tips...and a monoposto cowl...

That really is reminiscent of "motorcycle art"

I'll say +1 on the silver tips, previous owner had done that on mine, and it certainly helps to show off a feature that I thought was almost hidden with the black.

But damn, that gold.......

I made a decision on an MV today.Rang the dealer in South Australia to get the deal underway,but someone had just purchased it.A stock 312r 1+1 with just over a thousand kilometres.It has been for sale or eight months,or so.After seeing the youtube video in the above link,I settled on the 312 with plans to add the silver star rims.

Procrastinating can sometimes work in your favour. Not this time.

Unfortunately,the 312r has been sold.I missed out on it.So I won't have to endure boring advice on unsprung weight..blah,blah,blah.

But even worse still,I have no "as new" 312r.
