Best place for MV spares please and Power Commander question?

Hi guys, sorry for a daft questions but am relatively new to MVs.. Where's the best place(s) in London/South East UK to get spares for an F4 please. Just after odd bits that are looking tired etc.

Also, the bike I bought has cat removed and a power commander but as yet not sure how that's been programmed. Its runnning a bit rich (smell) and pops and bangs occasionally on the overrun. Anywhere you recommend please in my areas?

Thank you, will keep my eye open for you at Box Hill or Newlands Corner!

Nice to see another new guy, I hope you enjoy your time with the MV. Which model have you got ?
Pictures ? Where did you buy it ?
Anyway, for spares and Stuff, look at the site sponsors, if you look to the headings at the top you will see the Discussion Forum, go there and scroll down and you will see the site sponsors, DesignCorse is UK based but all those guys will help you.
Popping on the overun is not too uncommon but a Dyno run is usualy a good idea.

Hey Paul,

Common practice is keeping the spares in your garage/house as they'll be safe from the weather.

Donsy's right on. Don't know about shipping across the pond, but Carl (CAG) is a good spot to check for used, and all the site sponsors are going to have your new stuff.

I believe popping on the overun is due to too lean in the idle cels.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Thumbs down popping?

Lee;
its in the 0% & 2% columns in a PClll map.....this is where a lambda meter is so handy, mine uses LEDs so problems are real easy to spot

you can stop the popping by advancing the timing, when you have high MAP
oh thats right they don't measure that
