First 200-miles on my 750!

Well after the whole SPU box fiasco om the 2nd day of ownership, I got everything sorted out with a new box and everything is working well.

I would also like to thank this forum, as I have spent countless hours doing research and finding out what is normal and what isn't.

I've used a lot of the tips learned here, and the bike is truly a work of art!

Here are some problems I encountered and addressed--again, all with the help of this forum!

Headlights not working - new SPU box fixed this!

No room for right boot on peg - new longer pegs fixed this!

On/Off throttle - tightened throttle cable slack and removed 2nd return spring.

Vibration at 6K rpm - tightened all plastics and turn signals.

Headlight cover falling off - I had not experienced this, but I put RTV around the cover and tape on top/bottom to catch it if it becomes a problem.

I went on my first longish twisty ride on the bike yesterday and it handled great! I love the sound and overall capabilities. My front tire was an original from '04 - so I wanted to take it easy. I have a fresh new tire waiting to be put on now.

Overall, i'm really impressed with this bike. It feels very nimble and it is definitely not something you see everyday!

I have fond memories of my 750. First MV I ever bought.

You will enjoy it more the longer you own it.

I just put on a fresh front tire (rear was already new when I bought the bike)

I must say, it's an interesting design on how to remove the front wheel.

I plan on owning this bike for awhile--hopefully I won't get the urge to upgrade to the 910!

actually one last problem I did not find too much information on: the stock gearing has the bike revs pretty high on the freeway (65-70mph) Seems a bit unnatural to rev so high?

I've had a 750 for almost two years and 12,000 miles. Enjoy. Never had to remove the spring for the throttle just had to learn to be gentle with it.

Rev's are high because gearing is made for racing/acceleration. The engine lacks sufficient torque in the lower revs to make it giddy up and go.

I'm a Vtwin man, and I have not owned an I4 since my R6 several years back.

But you guys are right, the 750 has very little power below 7K.
