air filter re-call on the 2010 F4

Just incase not every body knows, there is a re- call on the new F4 air filter outer, upper cage due to the plastic holder/clips been to weak. I have enclosed a picture of the old filter holder, however although I got to see the new design holder I didn't get to take a picture of it but I think it looks more or less the same, its just made out of a stronger plastic with more webbing.

More trouble, now all the heat protection on the inside of the fairing is coming off, however it does look like MV are going to replace it, hopfully with something better.

I know its only a minor issue which will hopefully be replaced with little fuss, but it's still disappointing to see the obvious use of poor quality products.

I think the problem is a little more then just sticking it down with better glue, what is needed is a better product, and hopfully MV will be sending me some. I'll keep you all in the loop.
