BTW: i know of a few things i could look into in the near future...

-i once saw a nice F4 750 with the outline of the MV symbol on the side plastics/ fairings. It looked to be a reflective or metallic decal of just the letters M V and the gear and cam around them (typical logo) i would love to find a member or source for the logo in the same reflective/ holographic material... the decal was easily 10 or 11 inches diameter

-the F4 seems to run hot like my aprilia and i knew this going in... the previous owner used engine ice and installed a relay prior to my purchase, but i would love a link to the common upgraded relay, best water pump, and anything else to keep the engine in safe temperature range

-lastly i love the bike and replaced a custom Arlen Ness showbike with the F4... so it will sit occasionally, be looked at often, and be ridden maybe 2-4 times a month. i would love to learn more about the history on the "bodoni" color scheme, how rare these models were, and maybe even some tasteful mods to brighten her up (she is clad in sadness black and needs something colorful to liven her up)

Thank you Edward! I knew there were some aftermarket(s) out there. Forum recommendations go a long way for me.

Welcome to the family !!! Are you working with the BMW-Ducati dealer on the south end of Charlotte (almost into SC)?? Say Hi to Michael there (the service manager). Good friend, good guy, and he knows the first gen MVs very well (ex-Fast by Ferraci race team tech).

Just look at any of SilentService703's posts for a link to the Gap celebration.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
