Good call, thx for the advice.

They seem to have the most adjustment of the clip-ons I've found. Thx for the feedback, another thing off the shopping list.

I have sent them an email but haven't recieved a reply.

Have you had any experience with these 2 or could you suggest something else?

Thanx

Make sure you have some metal fuel fittings handy for the next time you have to remove the tank.
Forum sponsor Design Corse used to have bar risers, I've also posted links to adjustable bars which I've used in the past - Cycle Cat has not done anything for MV in years. http://www.performanceparts.de/en/MV...A/F4-750-1078/

Thanks for that, Dons. I'll have a look when I have some time. These headers are of multiple pieces, so I was thinking they could be adjusted to fit.

Thx for comments

Yeah I like to tinker, though anything serious, I have an arrangement with my mechanic, he works on it, I ride it. Cursed with being toy rich but time poor.

Yeah Castle, I do like to do it right the first time. I'm lazy, having to do/fix it again is time spent I'd rather be riding.

Anyway the plan is to:
1) do the fixes to avoid possible future problems: radiator support, wellnuts (air filter while I'm there) and fuel fittings/hoses
2) ride-ability: bar risers and suspension tuning
3) Mitchy hub for next service
4) CPU and exhaust are future presents, like to do these things gradually. Always good to have as many Christmases as possible.

Anyway, the feedback from the forum has been awesome. Always better to get info from people in the know vs people who think they know.

Perhaps someone will find the Air Filter equivalent to what has been posted about oil filters.
Yeah, I'm one of those anal people, I think they recommend every 50K to clean and oil but I do every service 15K on the cars and 6K on the bikes. 10 min effort equals breath better and run better.

Dave, the early MY06 1000R also had split headers, not the welded one piece jobs, mine had this.

Jobsright, sit down when you look at Moto Corse or MV Corse Ti pipes, Dave's a millionaire in his spare time away from the theatre
