Hey everyone, been lurking around here lately and as of today officially own an mv!

I picked up a 2008 f4 312r with 11,500 miles on it. It needs a few odds and ends but I'm so happy to have it in my garage now. Someone did a really poor job repairing the exhaust, the tips are all kinds of crooked..which seemingly led to the licence plate holder not being able to be used. The previous owner put some el cheapo swing arm plate holder on it and took the turn signals off.

I plan to get either another set of stock mufflers/tips or pull these off and try to repair the damage that was already done to them, get an integrated tail light so that the turn signals will work, and get a proper license plate holder. General clean up is needed on it, it looks as though it spent some of its life out in the weather. As far as modifications go. It already has a hub upgrade, but will need metal fan blades and an upgraded water pump. A few fasteners here and there that are tarnished will get replaced as well.
