I was going to tune my RC and change everything on it.

It turns out HRT can't do it for me.

Great. That was the entire point of buying the bike in the first place.
I don't know what I'm going to do with it now(?)!
It's in the basement and until I can find someone who can put a big bore kit on it and tune it real good I won't be touching it.

EVERYONE warned me from buying a MV Agusta. Impossible to get parts, lack of service, bad quality etc etc.

If it won't be solved I'll sell the bike with too much of a loss and then get something I can find parts to.

Also, I still haven't gotten the carbon seat cowl and it turns out it's impossible to order the AMG fairings my dealer told me.

Anyone know where else I can get the bike tuned? I have to have the 1133cc big bore kit.

No sure just why you need the 1133 big bore kit? Bike makes more power than anyone not one of the MotoGP aliens can use in stock form.

Have you ridden it? Maybe that's the best idea.

Send it to Noel!

But seriously, who are HRT?
Is that a private company with no association with MV Agusta?

The bike doesn't deliver any 212hp. Only on the paper.

I want it.
Now I can't have it. I bought it so that I could tune it the way I wanted it. It was either the RC or the H2R.

Why even have a big bore kit nobody can buy?

And the dry clutch - nobody can buy it.

Money is ready - I can't get it.

Looking at HP4RACE. LKM in Germany can tune pretty good I heard.
I guess I can put lights from S1000RR on it.

The RC can collect dust until someone can deliver what I want.

Even my ZXR750(950cc) from 1992 is more vicious than the stock RC.

David Elias's 910R has 219hp.....he turboed it the right way

Stop whining ......or spend the money

I don't want turbo.

Isn't it possible to bore the stock cylinder? Pistons should be easy to find.

Your dealer talks rubbish as can clearly be seen by my F4 build thread where i ordered the AMG fairings direct from MV via Evolutionbike. They are currently off the bike wrapped up safely in the wardrobe (selling my F4 for an F4RR where the AMG fairings will have a new home)

Why you would want to get more power from the RC is beyond me, I doubt many of us could make the most of the RC in stock form anyway.

Plated cylinders. Yes. they could be machined out and replated. That's all the big bore kit would be.

You were considering the H2R which is supercharged, but won't consider turbo? I'm no fan of turbos either...maybe you could supercharge it? It would be a first.

Your obsession with peak horsepower is interesting. Are you into peak horsepower dyno shoot outs against full bore Hayabusas and ZXR14s???

I mean....you can't use what's already there on the street. And not on the track either without significant chassis tuning and mad skills like Marquez.

So what is the point? I'm just curious.

Everyone goes full loving bananas when the HRT 1133 Brutale is presented in 2011 but when I want to do the same to my engine nobody understands.

I want it, that's the reason.

H2R gives much more linear power curve and the supercharger is factory made.
Many home built turbo bikes blows up and looks ridiculous.

Help me instead find someone serious who can build my engine. I can ship the motor to The States if necessary.

Plated cylinders, interesting. It's not my field of work so please tell me more. Any suggestions are welcome.

Can I use old cylinder -09 or so, on my bike to be able to reach 1133cc??
Is it possible for a stroker kit?

Thanks.

OK...I understand. Maybe your dealer is not asking the right people?? You can contact MV directly. Perhaps they will give you different answers.

Plated cylinders are normal these days. No Iron liners. Instead the alloy of the cylinder block is plated with a a very hard material. Back in the 70's we called it "chrome plated" but it isn't really chromium. There are companies here in the USA that refurbish worn or damaged plated cylinders. They could bore out the block to the size required and apply the plating if given the specs and enough base material in the cylinder block. You would then need to source the pistons and rings (I'd do that first!!) and determine what to do with the head gasket and squish band in the combustion chamber.

Anything can be done. All it takes is money. Might I recommend reaching out to Eraldo Ferraci? He is still around and certainly familiar with this engine and big bore kits.

Do a google search.

Thanks.

Exactly my point; "anything can be done, all it takes is money". I've heard that from HRH and everywhere else too.
Now that I have endless funds and want to do precisely "anything and everything" - suddenly it can't be done.

If you could guide me I'd be pleased.

Now we're getting somewhere. :)

Get the F4 1078 RR 312 or the CC. With some very proper tuning you can make close to 200 RWHP. Without taking the engine apart. And Magnesium parts can be found.

I don't know but I think you bought the wrong bike:smile2:
In my opinion you should have gone to the H2R because it offers almost everything you're looking.

Frank;
You are truly a genius......NOT! Try and get something right

Carrillo makes connecting rods

CP makes pistons....

That's where my Swedish friend Joakim gets his 1127cc RSVR Aprilia pistons......last couple of tries they got the
valve pocket cutouts totally wrong

At least use spell check

Nicholas, is it possible that you're not satisfied because of the Euro4 emission stuff they put on the bike? I test rode a Yamaha R6 recently, must say it's nothing like I remember of my old R6, flat spots everywhere due to the Euro4 emission. Have you put on the SC pipe and race ECU to try out?

Having said above I understand your frustration. Bikes (to me at least is a poor man's Ferrari), and if you can't get insane acceleration satisfaction etc, why risk life and limb. Hope you get to your destination, what ever that happens to be. BTW, I've bought a couple of bits from Ferraci, and can only say their service is excellent.
