Question Service in Virgina

Being that the nearest dealership is approx. 3hrs. away i was wondering if anyone knew of a reputable shop in the Northern VA. area.

Has anyone had any dealings with the shop in North Carolina? Good or bad??? any help would be apreciated.

I have taken by bike to Fast Lane Cycles in Chantilly, VA for dyno tunning and an oil change. They know how to work on MV's b/c the guy that does all the work on Duc's was trained specifically on italian bikes. They are a little priciy b/c they are considered a racing show, but they know what they are doing. There is a shop down in Richmond where i had my dyno tunning called MotoEuropa, and they work on MV's as well. I think they just recently raised some of their prices but i don't know for sure. I know Style_one lives in MD and he might know where a good place to get the MV worked on if none of these options sound good. hope it helps.

i believe it was something like $200 for the first service, and i don't think it maters what kind of bike it is. it might be a little more depending on what type of oil you request.

Chris,

I will need to take my SPR for its 3000mi service this season, so I can just go to one of those places in VA and have it done, or do I have to go to an MV dealer? Will it void my extended warranty if I use a non-MV dealer?

Also do you think they'll be able to to a PC install and tuning for our bikes?

Fast lane can do the tunning and service no problem, the only thing is they have an older model dyno that doesn't have the air/fuel sensor or the braking function. if you got a PC don't pay someone to install it, come by my place and i will put it in for you, it is pretty easy to install, it only took me about an hour to do it. Shoot me a PM whenever you want to tackle it.

I know that Style, Outta, VG and myself live around the DC area. Depending on traffic fredericksburg isn't tough to get to. i was down there yesterday and was thinking i wouldn't mind searching out some nice roads in that area. And MV's riding together does look sick, kinda like this: http://mvagusta.net/gallery/greeneggs/DSC01148

the closest shop is my garage!

but for service i took mine to fast by ferracci because it's the closet dealer, which chris left out of his shop list by no accident. i will probably go to motoeuropa in richmond to do another dyno tuning. i don't know if using non-dealers will void warranty, but the first services are no big deal so any shop should be able to handle it. actually, you could do it yourself. the 7500mile service needs the valves adjusted. because i also needed the remap and co2 level stuff set, i couldn't do that myself.

there is also another place a little farther away in pennsylvania that is a dealer if ferracci doesn't suit your tastes.
