info please

Two questions.

1- Somewhere on the web I ran across an embroidered MV Agusta patch which measured 14" wide. I can't find the site. Does anyone know where to get one?

2- If my efforts at reducing temperature don't get it then I would like to follow MikeF4UK's advice and look into putting vents in the side fairings. Can anyone tell me if the F4 1000 side fairings are exact duplicates of the Tambos? If so then perhaps I can find a pair from a damaged F4 to experiment with.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Lee - I've seen the patches you are talking about... they come up on eBay once in a while.

As far as I know, they all interchange. I experimented with the race fairings from my 750 and cut out small sections somewhat mimicing the openings in the CC.



Once the fans come on, there's quite a lot of hot air that comes out those holes. I didn't run with them very long, but it did seem to make a noticeable difference.

If you've got a hacksaw, there's no end to what you can accomplish. OK, that's not quite true. A hacksaw, a hammer, and a prybar ...

Now you're talking.

All I had was a picture of a CC and a set of fiberglass panels from my racing days. I figured that if I ever track the bike again, the cutouts wouldn't hurt, and if I don't, the bodywork will sit in storage anyway. Either way, it was worth a try. I think that when summer rolls around again and it's sixty or seventy degrees warmer (Fahrenheit, that is) I may have another go at this concept, but with panels I'd leave on. These are race-quality, with a rattle can paint job.

Fairings are interchangable, 750 or 1000 it doesn't matter.

Alpinstar boots in red and black...they do look pretty goofy under the blue jeans from the rear. Very comfy and they don't look so goofy outside my leathers.
