Smile What MV left off your bike!!!

Hi guys have a look at what shops are fitting in New Zealand.
This will stop your radiator from splitting in the near future.

How does that brace help? This is the first I've heard of any problems with the radiator splitting.

The support hook that attaches to the lower fan also acts as a brace which stops the radiators from moving around.

I think the radiator split is due to improper fit of the lower fan not being hooked up or the rubber gromit has made its way loose. Doing hard landings from wheelies can easily dislodge the rubber gromit, so the radiators will be just hanging from the top.

I was doing wheelies on my old 750 and the gromit made itself loose from the hard landing. I notice later on that the rubber gromit has gone brittle and hard from the heat of the pipes.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

Nice simple little mod that provides some added insurance- nothing wrong with that- nice.

The Guy that owns the bike in the photo had just brought a new 1000s rode it home from the shop ,about 200 miles and she had split in that time. in the same place as everyone else on this site incl my 07 Senna that went twice.
I am looking to bye a 312RR but won't till my dealer can reassure me this fault is fixed.

I take it you don't visit this site very often or your very selective on what posts you read.
