I still love my bike right guys?

I swear. If one more thing breaks...... How does a 1/4in thick piece of steel break!?!? I mean come on. And to top it off the hex bolt is stripped before I even tried to loosen it...

"It's not in warrantee" says MV Agusta. That's the famous catch all phrase...

Even new Ferrari's come with a 7 YEAR warranty. Sigh...

Vibration will snap anything. Rubber mount it.

Should have been fixed before delivery.
Might have missed your bike.

MV had also a recall bulletin asking the dealer to fix the nut holding the windschield
My windshield went after less than 50 miles.

TV not rideable with a flapping windshield.

Had to remove the dashboard on the side of a crowded freeway.
The (big) nut was jumping around on top of the ribbed headlight housing.
Washer gone.

Leatherman rules,
fixed it on the spot.
Went back to the dealer because I'd lost one of the dashboard screws,
and my screwdriver bit,
maybe in the tall grass.


Checked the bulletins
found they hadn't replaced the breakable shock grip arm either.

A typical crappy dealer pre-delivery failure.....

@Figifister ... go raise hell with your selling dealer and make sure you let MV know about their ineptitude.

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

Just to be clear, the metal bracket is what the recall is for? That is the arm your referring to? What is the fix? I'm leaning towards the idea of the rubber bushing but I would still need a new bracket.


Also my visor rattles as well...

My hand guard, color matched cover flew off a couple thousand miles ago while going 110mph. Is that a recall item?

I'm guessing a no recall was issued on the rear turn signals burning out aswell....

I know you said the site is down but anything else I should be aware of flying off or breaking?!?.... Besides the cush drive bushings...

New parts replace the breakable ones.
Didn't check what it was.

Tighten the 3 nuts
Watch out for the bespoke rubber + metal washers.
Quote:

Nope
Only two little screws.
One half turn too much on one screw, breaks the plastic.

Water ingress and vibrations kill the circuit board.
Warranty item
Replaced no question asked.

Punch a very small hole at the bottom helps a lot with the water.
Blinker fluid and all that.

By mistake
the dealer gave me an hefty bill for the rear turn signal.
Two (2!) hours of work he wrote!

...site is down
If and when this server goes online again check for TV bulletins and have it done.
Before a slipper clutch and/or clutch sensor switch failure
they can ruin a good ride.


Having the fuel gauge go bad end of june might be a problem
because in august MV Agusta and the rest of Italy is closed.
Warranty alright but no parts.

Something wobbles replace.

Easy and very cheap fix
5 little rubber blocks, cost 5€
