Thanks for the reply.

I'm a 45 year rider, do the math . . . I don't think I need any more power than stock in this case!

There seems to be another box that has been glues in the front fairing. Im not sure if it's part of the Power Commander or something else. First job is to get the bike running, then maybe I can see if we can take some of these extre bit off.

The exhaust appears to be stock, but I haven't really got into that yet. Not sure if the Cat is still present or not.

I think these bikes are a thing of beauty and the less mods the better, but if mods are made they should be in keeping in style and quality.

It'll be an interesting project for sure!!

The Power Commander was probably installed more to smooth the power rather than increase it. I'd scrap it too as it is only a piggyback device to alter injector duration. The real power delivery issue is in the ignition timing.
Whatever is on the front cowl is probably unrelated. Post a couple more pics and we can tell you about the exhaust. Removing the catalyzer is a good mod.

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

Sorry that you've written yourself off at only 45!

As a 57 year old rider with "some physical challenges", I'd have to say my 312R is my favorite bike to ride. I have other choices, but it's my favorite.

Ed is spot on about the timing of the ECU in the 312R. The tuning is not about making more power, it's about making the available power smooth and useful.

The box in the front fairing might be headlight related or garage door opener related...post up a pic or two.

Is it a ballast for HID bulb?

Thanks for the good input. I will shoot a couple of pictures of the box in the front, I'll also see if I can trace the wiring as a clue.

Once I have the bike running, I'll think about taking out the PC.

The math I refer to is; I started riding at 15 and have ridden for 45 years. So I've got you beat by a few years. Still I feel like a young stud when one of our local riders turns up on his '30's Indian - he's 84 and only has one leg! Ridden all his life . . .

...you are assuming that I didn't start riding until I was 15.....

I'm definitely here to some guidance with this bike. It's a beautiful machine and I really hope to bring it back to good condition with the help from other members of this group. I'm not sure how many MV's there are around here but I'd think there must be a few . . .

I had the Senna almost most of it life, I live in OC, I and Noel see each other couple times per year otherwise I don't see many MV owner since last time we were together in 2014, if you never help Noel had a lot parts in whole house, he is really good with MV, and I also work on my MV and track it at the track let me know if you have any question that we can help.

Hi, while you have the tank off you might want to check the condition of the internal fuel hoses and also the quick disconnects on the bottom of the tank, these are both areas of concern and need to be rectified, all the information you require is on this board.
