UK servicing

Hi

I used to get my F4 serviced at Forza at Silverstone but since they stopped trading I haven't had a service.
Has anyone tried the dealers in Richmond or Welling, are they ok? I really need a service but I don't want to go to some terrible place.

thanks

Welling seems ok. Decent blokes. Been very helpful on recent visits. They overfilled the oil slightly last time although it didn't seem to cause any problems. I'm about to book another service.

By "Richmond" do you mean the one near Kew on the South Circular? I won't be going back there. Prices were very high; they left off two tank bolts on one visit; and another time they didn't do anything because they failed to book my bike on their system and claimed they didn't know what it was in for. Had to return the next day. Seems a bit disorganised and when I went last time they had no MVs, only scooters.

Bit far but I can recommend MotoCorsa in Gillingham (Dorset)

I also think Bennett's do a collection and delivery service - they are also one of the top dealers in the country

You could try RPM in Northampton 01604 210900, Iain Rhodes ex-technician at Forza Italia, top top quality, I have no hesitation in recommending

Seconded. Unless they've now moved the workshop isn't at the same location as their showroom. Though worth borrowing a bike and riding over there for a look and something to eat (decent cafe on site) whilst they're servicing your bike. Speak to Danni re service and mention you'd like to borrow a bike if possible (need driving licence and proof of address ISTR). I had an Aprilia Tuono R last time I was down there

Depending on how long ago you were dealing with Forza Italia, but if it was around 2012/13 then Iain was their technician

Thanks for the replies. I had my doubts about the scooter dealership on the south circular but as I used to go to Forza from about 2011 I think RPM is my best bet.

Thanks!

If that is the case I'm sure Iain would have worked on your bike.

I am meeting him tomorrow at the Design Corse Open Day near Hemel Hempstead, will mention to him that you might be contacting him (But not sure of your name)

You could mention mine if you do decide to use him

I must say I've been hugely dissapointed with the customer service I've received from Moto Corsa.

Try as I might I've been unable to get a response from them about some work that's needed on my bike. I've rung them several times (a lot of the time the phone nobody answers) and emailed but just cannot seem to get an answer.

Now, in my opinion, I shouldn't have to bend over backwards just to get someone to actually enable me to take advantage of a service that is being offered. Or is this part of the 'quirk' of MV ownership?

I'm tempted to get in touch with my local Ducati specialist (Lougi Moto) and see if he's up for doing the work. Just before I bought the bike they did say they would happily work on it, and all they would need would be to buy a cable to hook it up to the bike for ECU stuff.

Do I really need to go to a 'MV specialist' anyway?
