F4 spr

I'm looking at the possibility of purchasing a 750 SPR. I should know the answer to this question myself but age seems to have dimmed my grey matter. Did the SPR come with two sets of exhausts from new? i.e. RG3's and standard pipes? Was there any other kit it should have? I know its got the factory rear stand. If I did buy it, I doubt I'd ride it much although my son has already expressed more than a passing interest. Lol

Hey John, welcome back. I believe the SPR did come with both exhausts from the factory. It also came with an extra rear sprocket to change the gearing. I'm not positive what else was included in the factory package though. Hope to see you around more.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

2 rear gear wheels, grip covers, the RG3 with chip, and a cover (which I didn't get with mine, dang it)....oh, and the rear stand.

Oh yeah, and Certificate (which I didn't get...dang it).

I think that's it.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks for the quick responses Ian and Ed. :-). The bike in question has had a couple of owners, so I wouldn't be suprised if some of the 'extras' have gone astray over the years, however if they have it's another bargaining chip I suppose. I've also got my eye on a Blue/Silver 1000S, so even if I can't get the SPR for the right money I might just have another MV in the garage soon. Its been a while.

Good luck, John. The SPR is a special bike; but, I do love the Blue/Silver MVs.

That's the thing. I've offered the seller a fair bit less than he was asking for, but I also split my offer depending on whether or not the 'extras' we've spoken about here are all present with the bike or not. To be frank, I switched the 'puter on this morning to find he's reject my offer/s. That's fair enough, the SPR is a rare bike, but the fact is I can buy the Blue/Silver 1000S for 2000 less than I offered for the SPR, and significantly less than what the guy is asking for it! Having had both 750 Evo 3 and 1000S F4's in the past, from a road riding perspective, I favour the higher torque of the thou. If we were talking track riding it would be the SPR (every time), but I'd be buying either bike as an investment not to ride. Much as I love F4's, I can't ride one any distance these days without developing aches and pains in my wrists and back, so if I can't get one cheap enough to make money on myself at some stage in the future, my cheque book will stay firmly in my pocket. I know that doesn't exactly answer your question. I'm sure you can check the classified ads yourself and find one or two examples of SPR's out there, this particular one has been for sale for quite some time, but of course its the seller's prerogative to keep it if he doesn't get an offer that suits. As for me, I think I'm going to go and have a closer look at the 1000S.
