Newbie gal

hey everyone

im hazza from the UK, been riding for 8 years predominantly sports bikes. i used to ride my dads MV F4 750 quite abit and he finally got the hump with me this year racking mileage up on it that he made me get my own. ive still got my first love which is my Triumph Daytona 675, ive spent as much money on as i did buying my MV! so couldnt part with her at all, im gonna try and push her to track next year abit more.

my MV is a 2009 F4 1078 RR 312, it's my first liter bike and only done 4,500miles, didnt stop me adding 500miles in the first 2 days of owning it haha!! im not one for worrying about mileage as i racked my Daytona to 24,000miles in three years. its what they are designed for right?! i swear that my Daytona and RR plot different ways of braking down to each other in the garage, one British and one Italian cant be a great combination of reliability! (the Triumph living up to that to a T!)

anyway she's still completely standard, after a week of owning her she was straight on the dyno and was kicking out 172.47BHP and 82.83 max Torque. i'm hoping thats good for an MV at that age? but i have a whole list of needed bits already for her. microtech, MWR filter (i have one on my trumpet already, amazing bit of kit!) and maybe a RG3 exhaust. but i still need to get in contact with Xbikes about it.

anyway this has turned into a bit of a novel now, im made keen on knowing more about the MV's so any niggles please tell me!!!

and how do i up load images as im struggling to get to understand that lol!

Hi Haz, where in the UK are you? Plenty of decent UK people on here with decent advice and recommendations of good dealers.

When my Dad and I first laid our eyes on an MV Agusta at the UK launch, we were simply blown away.................

Welcome aboard. My 312RR is at X-Bikes right now getting 20 BHP added along with bling.

Come the good weather we organise some ride outs. You wont be alone as Rosemary on her 1098 comes out with us most times.

I have had the steering tube swapped out for a 750 one which allegedely changes the rake ? Different swing arm plates/ride height. Forks dropped through yokes, pins removed from levers to allow a better position. Suspension all set up. Performance air filter, Microtek ECU, exhaust decatted and modified to sortof RG3 spec,

Already had Muzzy fans on it.

Then on the bling side it has had the exhaust mirror polished, the marchesinis mirror polished and painted.

The dash went to Italy for a new face and an in built gear position indicator.

Probably a few things that I have forgotten

Yes it does change the rake a tad and quickens the steering ...Donsy has done this with a bearing carrier I sent down under : )

Hi Hazza, welcome to the forum, keep an eye on the rear hub bearings, plenty of threads on here about those. Lol
