Count yourself lucky to have had no problems with your MV's. However, DON'T dismiss other's who have had problems and there is a long list of us! Go back through all my posts to refresh yourself with what I went through. I'll bad mouth MV bikes and the factory that won't support their dealer networks or owners as long as my lungs have air! If I had the money I would have started an action against them years ago.
It appears that there is no longer an MV Agusta importer in Canada and therefore no Dealer Network. The Australian group that took over the US distribution doesn't seem interested in Canada. So we are now left on our own. I have put less than 1000 km's on my bike in the last three years. When I do ride it I never take the bike above 10,000 rpm's for fear of dropping a valve. I worry about the day I hear the tell tale signs of yet another starter sprag nearing the end of it's use. Not to mention the clutch letting go or the rear wheel spacer turning to powder as it's ground down.
If I could have found a buyer for my bike it would have be sold long ago. I stopped visiting this site because I didn't want my negativity to bring down those who can still enjoy their motorcycles. People who live where parts and service are readily available have no idea what it's like for riders like us, forgotten in the Great White North.

Wouldn't it be nice to stay with the original subject?
That is, some of us that DO want to ride an MV and cope best with adverse circumstances, are looking
for other owners that too are interested in some diagnostic tools
'Hacking' this thread, convincing people NOT to own an MV, isn't, to say the least, very helpful

Just about the end of the world tho'. Medicine Hat , Alberta is about 100 km west of here. It's an oil town or maybe more into huge reserves of natural gas. Hell is very close apparently.

Rudyard Kipling " This part of the country seems to have all hell for a basement, and the only trap door appears to be Medicine Hat. And you don't even think of changing the name of your town. It's all your own and the only hat of its kind on earth. Rudyard Kipling 1907


An yes I'm another owner who has been left stranded in a rather difficult situation with a bike I can't get fixed and also can't sell.


So we are all putting our heads together and trying to come up with a solution.

Yes, a title change would indeed be helpful
Something like "Affordable diagnosis tool"

Good on yer for your initiative Sashkatchewan.


While we have some excellent dealers in Australia, there are none in my state, which is an island, and a contingency plan is always a good idea. Count me in.


How to proceed from here? I suggest someone who is confident with writitng skills & knowledge of the issues an draft an email, and we can see what sort of responses we get.
