New Build Thread - Dragster 800

So I have just bought a 2015 Dragster, just the standard, not the RR and I will track the mods/build on here.
For starters I did just order a new Sprag after reading all the issues but other than that still waiting to see what I will do to her.
Looking highly likely I will install the QD slip on, MV Corse seat and some small bits (carbon, moto corse) to clean her up.
Also very tempted by this:

Maybe a little overkill but looks awesome IMO and not bad value considering you get triple clamps and it all just drops striaght in.
Bike comes to me in 2 weeks so will upload more pics as I go along.

Cheers mate.

Actually the QD exhaust has just been ordered, Design Corse lulled me in with a 25% discount that I could not refuse.

So now we have the QD and CNC Rearsets going on straight away.

Look good if you like the gold. Very pricey though and I'd sooner go for Matisse internals to suit. Doesn't have the bling value but on par for performance.

Haha, of course...

Seriously though between EvolutionBike and Design Corse we MV owners do have 2 of the best companies to deal with. Both always exceed my expectations.
