Six weeks tomorrow!

Coming up to the extended Easter Weekend/Royal Wedding fiesta cobblers and still waiting to get the F4 back from Forza. Not their fault at all, entirely down to UK MV importer/MV factory. Bike's been gone six weeks now and its driving me nucking futts. Have had to borrow a mates crappy 12yr old ZX9r to get my speed fix in the interim.

Love the MV to bits, but seriously, if I was running a UJM or even the boss eyed BMer, I'd have been back on the road a month ago. Mirror/indicator, stator cover, rear indicator, rear axle nut and re-paint/re-decal 1 fairing lower and rear seat unit....all fairly standard "prang" stuff you would have thought? This has got me seriously thinking that as I like thrashing my bikes, I dont want to risk another get-off and lose the rest of the Summer waiting for MV's despatch department to sticka-da-stamps on a parcel for me in Varese......started eyeing Duc 1198's again now as spares situation in the UK is way better!

Glad I got that off my chest......Sorry, I'll stop whining now and go and sit by the telephone for another month

Movin' down the Queen's highway like a.... streak-a-lightnin'... KER-AAAAAaaaaaang!!!

"Mirror/indicator ( assuming its a Red 312 or the early 750 & 1000S models), stator cover, rear indicator"

I don't know if this helps you out, but if you can get Martin to okay it with Moto GB to replace these parts when they come into stock from MV, then I have the above parts here.. New!.

Sorry no can do on the wheel nut and decal ..
