Newbie

Been lurking on this forum since I bought a 2008 910S 2 months ago, thought I better make it official. Nearly bought one of the 1078rr being shipped in to Peter Stevens, but got a great deal on the 910S with only 500k's on it.

Few observations so far:

Mirrors not very useful
Slippery pegs (nearly fell off on test ride!)
Rear end where numberplate fits ugly (most bikes are these days)
Would like some more noise from the exhaust

Have emailed Trooper Lu about some CRG mirrors, barends to suit and a Melotti tail tidy. Just waiting on the tail tidy to turn up and they will be shipped to me. Kirra at Trooper Lus has provided fantastic customer service!

Now to the exhausts, really like the look of the standard slash pipes, but the Arrow stubbies sound great. Are there any other options besides the MV Corse that keep the original look without breaking the bank?

Footpeg options?

Any advice much appreciated

Welcome aboard! These bolt right on to your existing adjustable rearsets. Very grippy.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...#ht_1167wt_941

CAG^ do those only work with adjustable rearsets, or could I get a set for my non-adjustable?

They work on both. They just replace your foot pegs. It is 10 minute job to replace your existing pegs with these.

Hi Nads welcome from wet QLD I have a 1078 and have fitted a set of the MV Corse 'Inox' slash cut mufflers
from Evolution it they are a race pipe but as I retained the cat it is acceptable on the road and sounds excellent on the overrun and looks stock Cheers P

Footpegs question been answered, thank you CAG.

Padier, get a good sound even with the cat still fitted? Thought I was gunna have to fork out for a complete system. Do I need a fuel controller upgrade with these?

My previous bike was a 2007 Z1000, had a set of MIVV carbon slip ons, had a great sound with the db killers removed

This is a great site, plenty of knowledge and support for MV owners.

Welcome Nads. It's a good thing you're a Brutie rider with a name like Nads. If you were a F4 rider, you'd have to give up that moniker.......maybe adopt "Wuss".

I've never thought about adjustable rearsets, thought they were too expensive but these are a very good price. Worth spending the coin?
