Hi guys and gals. Excuse me if I'm posting this in the wrong place, but I couldn't see a post for introductions? Anyway.....Moving on! I've just bought a 2005 MV 1000 F4 which I mainly plan to use for spirited rides out by myself on route 66, or on the occasional track day (my main road bike is a 2011 BMW K1300S which we use for our two up riding). I look forward to joining in with this community and picking peoples brains for their knowledge. I owned a 2002 MV 750 F4 10 years ago, but other than ride it, and doing routime maintenance, I never did much to it other than cosmetics.

As a lifetime Tulsan/Oklahoman before moving to the Corn Desert, I welcome you. :)

There aren't many MVs in the Sooner state. A few came from Bauer in the OKC metro area. One Tulsan had a white/black '07 F4R, but moved out of state. You'll have exclusivity, for sure.:smoking:

Thanks for the welcome. I was at Hallet Raceway a few weekend back where my son was tracking his R6, while there, I watched a guy tracking his MV 1000 which brought back fond memories of my old 750 F4 of years past (10 years ago), so the hunt was on to get my hands on another one. I'll put the MV round Hallet at the next track day on the 6th of July, I'll be looking forward to whipping my sons butt :f4:.

Hallett's a hoot, but 1000s are almost useless there. I heard they've resurfaced since I moved 8 years ago. Confirm?

Used Gen1s are very reasonable money, and often low mileage with good maintenance.

Enjoy. This is a great forum, even though I'm not online much here. The Mod staff are the long-timers. You'll love this site.

Experimenting! I've added a picture of my Old 750 F4 along with the F4 1000 I just bought. Keeping my fingers crossed these pics upload!
Me likey Senna-style red-star wheels on your oldie (and the red exhaust tips).

The silver tail section and large red-outline decal on the newbie are unique. Add red-star wheels and exhaust tips. :)

Nice carbon bits on the 1000. Lotsa mirrors. LOL.

That's about all I would consider doing to the 1000, red star wheels, and anodized red exhaust tips. On my original 750, I actually sent the exhaust back to the UK from the Middle East to have them done, although I'm sure someone in the US does the same thing. I'm pretty lucky, like you said, the 1000 came loaded with all the goodies, dripping with carbon, RG3 exhaust, Power Commander, Penski Shock etc etc..... And yes, the extra set of wing mirrors are being removed! The previous owner definately wanted to see what was behind him.
