Most cars I rent when traveling abroad are manual, and a burnt clutch isn't covered under most policies. Even the slightest slippage and I'm not taking the car. I've had a few already.

Danny at OC showed it to me. The outer lip on the clutch boss had been ground completely flat, which meant the clutch plates weren't properly engaging with it, which subsequently burnt the clutch out.

Anyway, the F3 was put back together last Friday and I was finally able to bring it home again. I've spent the last 3 days riding it around and it feels 100% better than before.

I suspect the bike you bouight is the fastest motorcycle in the world, sort of like what Clarkson did with the fastest car in the world.

I feel you. My B3 has been in the shop over a month for a fuel tank and MV USA keeps stringing me along with no definitive delivery date. I can't get them to make anything a priority including the shipping. All I know is they've known about the problem, and haven't been able to produce a tank in over a month and won't agree to overnight it when it is finally ready. Meanwhile I've missed out of countless awesome ride opportunities, and I bought the bike brand new last year.

They're beautiful machines and really make you feel amazing when riding them, but I'll never own another one.
