No need for the little blue pill, us F4 riders enough lead in our pencils to knock the bark off trees (mixing two metaphors but sticking to the WOOD theme).

You should be very careful when you take them; they tend to have a high incidence of making the ticker stop with old timers like you. You seem to have plenty to live for, and I see there is a waiting list for your daughter.

I originally had a 1+1, I found somebody with a Monoposto whom wanted a 1+1.. we did an even trade for seats, passenger pegs and subframe.. Cheap and easy way around the issue=

With the biposto model do you get a plastic cover to make it look like a mono like you do with most other bikes ??

I am still considering what to do regarding swapping my RC8 for a 312R, I was just concerned what the resale price will be like on the 312 when they bring out the new model. Are MV'S 'hard' to sell on as you never see many about.

You UK guys, when you hae been ringing around UK dealers, is there many new bikes for sale and are the dealers very eagr to sell you one to get rid of them ??

Weighing up my options ?

This would still be cheaper than going px with dealer.

Unfortunately for me, is if I can't get this mv and convert it, then I won't be getting a mv right now

And trust me, I've been looking for a mv f4 for a long long time.

Dealers right now cheapest 11999 and considering a generous px, I will still have to fork out over 6k. RIght now, the deal is I add 4.


I think i need the following.

rear frame.
rear seat cowl for 1+1
heat shield.

Anything else?

You need:

New sub frame
New fairing with passenger seat
New footrests for passenger.

I got it all for 2006 F41000 in Red, was going to sell it to another forum member, but we never closed the deal.

Its pain to get a hold of, and i payed around 800 brand new for it from the UK.
