Recommend me someone to work on my MV (UK Oxon / Warks / Northants)

Now my bike is out of warranty I will not be trekking down to Moto Corsa any more (it was a 2 hour plus journey each way) and so I am looking for a specialist who can do the work I cannot.


I seem to recall mention of the ex Forza Italia tech setting up a business at Silverstone - anyone have any details?


Or other recommendations?


TIA

Talking to X bikes near Wisbeach, they have told me that they do sometimes collect bikes from quite far away and don't seem to charge much for this, if this is still the same with them you could try them.
They know alot about MV's and the service is excellent, if the job is big enough for it to be worth while then you could give them a call.

Thanks - I have spoken to Chris before and he is very very good but his area of expertise (by his own admission) is on the gen 1 F4s and he hasn't done a huge amount of work on the later models.

I met Andy at Brackley Festival of Biking. He is part time at present and has a place in Pattishall. Unfortunately he is no good to me as i have a 2017 Brutale 800, but as long as your bike does not require a computer you will be OK.
Failing that, Krazy Horse at Bury St Edmunds have been great for me since the demise of Forza Italia; but i guess their knowledge is mostly on current models. Speak to George.

It's a definite maybe.

I've messaged Andy but no reply yet - although if he doesn't have access to diagnostic equipment or an ability to reset the service message he may not be a huge help to me.


Unfortunately Bury St Edmunds is about as far for me as Moto Corsa so that's not much help

Bruce Taylor knows the ex-Forza Italia mechanic and he is in that area.

I have PM'd Hawk with the details on the card that Andy gave me at Brackley; mobile, e-mail & address; if anyone else wants them PM me & I will send them. The address is a unit North of Towcester.

It's a definite maybe.
