New to MV

Hey guys Ė Iíve recently picked up a 2010 F4 and am new to the MVs. Iíve always had Ducati, but earlier this year had a mishap at the track and found myself in need of a replacement. I didnít want to jump right back into another Duc with the new model coming out, and having always wanted an F4, decided now would be a good time to snag one. Now that Iíve finally got one, Iím wondering why I didnít pick one up sooner; I absolutely love the thing.

Like I said, being new to the MVs, Iím not familiar with some of the common upgrades or modification for track applications made to these bikes to make them even better than how they come from the factory. With the Ducs you have things like triples, shocks, links, etc. I know there has been quite a change from years past to the 10í model, and Iíve been poking around on here looking at different things (probably a good thing; else my sag would be all screwed up), but what are some of the more common items?

Thanks!

Congrats and welcome
Where do you live? If in the USA then get ready, cause everything has gone up in price (exhaust, ECU, wheels, ect..). As for track mods, I can't help you but I think the bike is still too new so the aftermarket support is thin. Rear sets are a must and the gas tank doesn't like ethonal. Post up some pics of your new ride tho.

Yes, I am in the US; Ohio actually (another interesting issue as I don't even have an MV dealer in Ohio) and I did see where the price of things have recently taken a sharp incline.

Here are some quick not so high quality cell phone shots I've snapped since having the bike. Haven't had a chance to take any decent pictures yet. The last one is probably more a picture of its matching garage mate, but figured I'd leave it since there are probably a few car enthusiasts here as well.

Lopped off that mud flap in a hurry!! I have the Black. I see the red and silver, I think I should have picked that. I see the silver / grey, should have picked that.
Enjoy it.

Pants up, don't loot.
