Hello to everyone.

I'm lucky enough to be taking delivery of a 2006 Senna next week. It's done 300 miles and is just getting its first service.

I'm new to MV's. I usually ride Ducatis (in fact I'm trading in a couple of classic Ducatis to get the Senna, but keeping my 2000 996SPS). I don't much care for Jap bikes (just my taste).

I'm hugely looking forward to the Senna but obviously I'm wondering what to expect. Is there anything I should be particularly mindful of, as a new owner. Do's and don'ts, that sort of thing.

If anyone could spare a few moments to give me some pointers, I'd be very grateful.

Btw I'm based in SE England.

Thanks all.

Mark

Congrats on the new bike -- beautiful choice. Yes, have lots of fun. You mentioned going in for your first service: be sure to ask them if the cam chain tensioner on your particular bike needs to be replaced under warranty, as there has been a recall notice issued by MV on some bad cc tensioners. I was just called by my dealer yesterday to bring my Senna in for the tensioner replacement. You might as well kill 2 birds with one stone if you can.

Hi and welcome. You have bought a lovely machine and a real break from the norm. I have had great satisfaction from MV ownership and you will find the forum both friendly and informative. Good luck!

Congrats and welcome to the forum, the Senna ia an outstanding bike.

You might want to check out the fuelling and have it tuned, I believe the Senna's have the same issues as the R with the new ignition injection system (the old one has problems also) with a dip in power around 5k rpm but it's easy enough to remedy and the answers are here. Just do some searches.

Well done beancounter, I am also new to MV.

I recently purchased an 06 Senna and after some delays shipping across our continent, it is due to arrive next Tuesday.

The dealer fitted RG3's, a mid pipe and race ECU which he claims ,after riding it, has resolved fueling issues and reports no flat spot around 5,000 rpm. He also claims it may run cooler. I'm sure it will SOUND better.

Looking forward to hearing your first ride review.

Cheers
Broms.

Thanks for the comments everyone - much appreciated.

In reply - the timing chain tensioner (recall) is being done with the service.

I'm based in Leighton Buzzard, South Bedfordshire.

Shame about the fuelling issues - I'll just have to see how mine rides on the road, see how noticeable it is.

Thanks again.
