Looks like my 2000 750 has had some work done

I recently picked up this bike from a guy in alabama that took it in on trade so he didnt really know much about it. I have been going through the bike and sorting things out. I came across some markings that do not look factory. Does anyone recognise these stamps? The elephant looking stamp is on the left side just below the valve cover and on the right side is the 2063 stamp.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the elephant stamp is Cagiva.

A quick google search shows this "Elephant – stamped on the cylinder heads of the MV F4S 750":

Ok, so this may have been stamped at the factory then? I can see the bike has atleast been ported at some point, no idea about anything else though.

I just found this, is there any other way to identify if i have serie oro parts on my bike? On the other side of the head it has one letter followed by 3 numbers (cant remember what they are right now) and all of my other engines have the letter with 4 numbers.

The elephant is on standard 750s. So no, it doesn't look special. What makes you think it has had work done? Others on here may correct me, but my understanding there is nothing special about Oro engines, they make the same power as the S. It is weight savings from parts such as magnesium frame plates and swing arms.

So unless you bike has some pruuuurdy gold looking frame parts it is just your bog stock but still special F4 750

I would go so far to say that You are might not that qualified to make such a comment.
The F4 Oro engines had sand casted engine casings for that matter.
Plus everything on an Oro is extraordinary.
Every piece of fairing, fender, battery tray, under seat tray, under tank and air box covers, tank and air box just name it was out of CF.
Wheels, swingarm,hub, frame plates, lower triple, sump etc out of Magnesium.
The F4 Oro has all the Goodies You can get for an F4 and is amongst all the specials, CRC or MV Agusta SpA, the highest spec'd bike, except the Veltro maybe.
But the S has the better engine I would say.

Well I stand corrected.Thank you
Now that you mention it I do vaguely recall the sand cast cases and the carbon mentions now. I'm not the student of the brand that many on here are.
Why do you think the S motor is better? They made the same power didn't they?

I love threads like this. I learn so much from them. So next time an ORO comes up for sale I can ask my wife and she will tell me NO.

I'm speaking about the accuracy of the casings and the marginally lesser weight.
Compare above photo with Your cylinder head for that matter.
