Excellent service

Just want to share another thing with you guys, this time it is a good one

As stated in another post, had a lot of trouble with my F4, so called Dipi-Moto and explained the whole situation.
The next day already I could bring it over to have it fixed.
It would take some time so got one very nice bike to ride (F4 1078, white and black, love the color) until is was fixed.

Yesterday received a phonecall that the bike was finished, so today early morning jumped on the bike for a 2,5 hour ride to Baarle-Nassau.

Got there, big conversation about bikes ofcourse, started talking about the new F4 and after a few minutes I received the keys.
Took her for a ride together with the owner (on a brutale), just for the fun.
Like the sound from the exhaust a lot, sounds just like a F1 car passing by.
However, IMHO the "old" bikes have much better looks.

After the ride picked up my bike (1000 S).
Never heard my bike running so smooth in my life
Combined with the looks of the "old" model, a nice set of RG3's, lots of carbon and a fuel consumption of 1 L/15km, I felt like a was in heaven

Just want to say, Bas and Pieter, you guys did a excellent job, I am so freaking happy at the moment

Cool

Gefeliciteerd! (Congrats...). And what's a 5 hrs ride out and back, compared to what some forum members in the US and Australia have to put up with?

You could always consider moving to the Baarle Nassau area; it's lovely there!

What did you think of the 1078 vs your 1000S vs 2010 F4? Give us your considered view! You rode the grey red framed 2010 F4 right? I did as well.

Yes, indeed I rode the grey red framed F4 2010.
It sounds nice, but I still can't get myself to like to bike.
In my opinion the older bikes have a better looking bodywork and ofcourse the red with silver looks so damn good on a MV.

The 1078 vs my 1000S
- I have the feeling that the engine runs a bit smoother on the 1078.
-The clutch however doesn't feel like it gives a lot of control (driving
slowly, almost walking).
In that case, the 1000S has the better clutch.
- The sound from the 1078 clutch when it is warm, you can even hear
it (Mike, I am sure that you know what I mean), it sounds really nice
- For my personal feeling, no noticalbe differences during riding.
- To bad the1078 has a CRC steering damper, the Ohlins steering
damper just looks better.
- The screen of the 1078 is a little bit different (higher I think), it
feels more comfortable during high speeds
- The brakes (Brembo) on the 1078 feel much better, almost supirior
to the ones on the 1000S (Nissin)

I had an white black 1078, but I still prefer the colors and the paintscheme of the first generation F4

Yeah, the Brembo's on both the 312R and the 1078RR are a lot better than the Nissins on the 1000S; I noticed that on the trackdays I did with them.

The 312R's Brembo;s have more sudden bite than both the other brakes; I prefer brakes that are smooth as well as "speed and fade proof", if you know what I mean.

I never noticed the clutch thing you mentioned; I do know the 1078RR has a very deep resonating sound; very impressive from lowdown. The screen is the tinted double bubble one from the CC; so yes, it's a bit higher. 100/110 mph is a very comfortable cruising speed, and almost legal.

Enjoy your bike! It's f*cking hot here...

About the clutch thing, it sounds like ratelen (don't know the english therm), just like those Ducati's with the open clutch cover.
Rings a bell?

Yeah, I know it is f*cking hot, had 40 C down here.
Not nice to ride a bike when the sun is shining that bad.

Maybe the clutch is dry? Or it's the slipperclutch playing up.
