MV Agusta on Fire !

This is what happened to one of the French MV forum members...

Rolling down the highway peacefully and all of the sudden it could sense some serious heat under his butt. He looks down and sees some big mama flames coming from somewhere down under.

He jumps off the bike and 5mn later this is what the bike looked like.





so much for not using our NIWI.

...just kidding :-) Insurance should cover all damages. Basically buying him a new bike.

RIP...

Perhaps a fuel leak for a crushed coupling that actually ignited? I had a fuel leak on my 750 and actually rode home, smelt the fuel, took off the fairing, and saw the fuel dribbing down the hot engine.

All you "my bike runs too hot winers," take note of this.

I'm glad his insurance will cover it.

Here is the link to my Mv that caught fire it was a 2005 F4 1000S 1+1, there is another guy in Germany that had the same model and year same thing also another boy that worked for Atlanta Triumph Ducati at the service counter had his catch fire. I know my insurance paid for mine, also I believe they won the case when they went after their money. Maybe there might be a issue here who knows, was his bike a 1000 also? We all know our bikes run extremely hot Lee has made some great posts to cool the bike with a 3rd fan, also some others have used ceramic coating on pipes and headers to cool it. I am glad just like many others that the rider is okay. Also since my fire I do not keep anything under my seat I.E the repair kit, papers for bike or anything that might have a lower flash point than what was built on the bike.
