Hi to everybody and thank you for letting me join you all on the forum:grin2:


Basically I'm a classic motorcycle restorer and have been for the last 22 years. My ride was the Ducati 749 for a couple of years but I've always wanted the F4 1000 MV.


As chance has it the company I work for had one in on a p/x deal. 2004 F4 1000s 1+1 with 12000 miles on it, very clean almost mint and very well looked after, had to have it :wink2:.


So here I am a member on here:wink2:

Welcome to the madhouse Jimmy, plenty of advice on here. I'm just over the Welsh border to you.

Nice ride but it has a cylinder extra for some reason, best get the hacksaw out and loose one...

Ride safe.

Ive found Moto Corsa to be the main genuine dealer for parts in the UK is that correct?

Welcome and congrats on getting your dream bike.

You should edit your profile signature with your bike model and year so it's easier for everyone in the future. :D

I'm new to the MV family / brand too (June I bought mine), loving every minute so far and it's exclusivity. So you've gone from being a cylinder missing to one too many....???

Thanks to all:grin2:, the previous owner purchased the bike from Bennetts so they know the bike, Moto Corsa seem to be good too. ill check out the owners club too so thanks for that :wink2:. My plan is to upgrade the cam chain tensioner as it has the original silver bodied one atm, trying to get the correct part code for that is confusing, they all seem to be different for the F4 around my year. Also take a look and probably replace the rear hub, plus service the bike so I know itll be right for next summer.


By the way that's absolutely stunning Nigel, lovely machine mate.


Thanks again to everybody:grin2:

Hi Jimmy, if you are going to change the hub get a Mitchy one off here as for Bennetts all I can say is top quality service for parts and advice.
