The 600 mile service on all MV's includes a valve check and adjustment...

Hope you got it free!!!!

Mine (with valve adj) cost $467. I think that 9 hours is the standard for worst case. I have heard that valve adjustments are rare but they need to check in case.

Interesting, my dealer called MV to ask about "pitting" on the cam lobes. MV told them not to be concerned - they will smooth by the 8000 mi service. Has anyone heard of this?

My 600 Mile service on my 2005 F4-1000 took a little over 6 hours. I watched the entire process. Valves were in spec and did not need any adjustment. If they did, I could see another hour+ of time being spent.

If there is pitting on cam lobes they need replacing the hardness has gone,or faulty, rapid wear will follow

Are you sure?

I was assured that it is "normal" and that miles will smooth them out without further issues. The tech did record this in the service records, just in case. Should I be worried? I asked if they took a picture of them, for the record, but they had not.

I have been in the motor trade ( trucks ) for many years now and if i strip a truck engine and found pitting yes i would be concerned and replace, i would not be happy to be told that they will smooth out. The lobes are hardend metal this stops it from wearing if it can `smooth out` then it its wearing,ask these guys in here i dont know about high performance engines, but pitting is not good.

really pathetic
makes owning a ferrari seem cheap :smoking:
My 600 mile service was 400+, which incuded oil change and valve check. No valves needed to be adjusted. Service department is seeing very little valve movement even on the second service.

"Pitting" term misuse....

My reference to "pitting" reveals my ignorance. I understand from the mechanic and from JamesC's inputs (http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2191) that it is more of a depthless etching. The cams remain smooth, just have the appearance of etches beneath the surface.

Sorry for the confusion. :blush:

My service took 8 hours, but only cost $370.

However, it is estimated that the 7500 mile service now sheduled will run ~$700 :bawling:


EDIT: I believe the jump in price is due to the expected valve adjustments.
