George is helping me out on a few items.

He is what I am needing. Front brake lines which will work with the brembos 4 pad. Clutch switch which goes under the master. Items I can work around is the wires are cut which plug into the clutch and front brake switches. Could use the control units so I can remove the wires from them. The MV logo rubber cap which goes into the headlight housing. The top one, not sure if it is the low or high beam. I will send you some pics to show you what I am talking about.

Been working on her the last few nights. Thanks to Ed and Chuck for taking my calls and text messages to get her running. George for sending me some of the parts I needed. I could not get her to run, she was not getting enough fuel. Pulled the injectors out and found that two might be broke. The area where the wires plug into them is loose and one had the wires exposed. So this morning I pulled the injectors out of Mona and placed in the Senna. She started right up. So she ideals fine, took her for a little spin. She likes it when you are on the gas. But not so much when you are at a steady pace. Runs rough. Guess I should add that I also added new plugs in her and that they all have spark to them. Looking for suggestions as to what to check? Could the injectors from Mona be putting out too much gas? For those that don't know Mona has a 1078 engine. Which then can lead to another problem. I am replacing the injectors in Mona with some left over race injectors from fast be ferraci race team.

I would like to do some mods to her. But I am also about preserving the history of the bikes for future generations. So at this time I am looking at getting her back close to stock and most of all. Cleaned up.

+1000 to the above!

Glad she ended being at your hands Andrew.

No. With the fueling the way it currently is. I would rather he go out on the Ago when it is in rain mode.

Mate, credit to you for doing all the right things and keeping this beauty alive and kicking. Excellent work!

The calibre of owners on this site is excellent, I've already benefited from lots of good advice and peoples kindness on this forum. Owning an MV is a privilege, being part of this forum is also a privilege. You deserve to own the Senna and she is a credit to you. Glad it's in the right hands now. keep up the good work!

I will not be able to use the race injectors on Mona. So I had the ones from the Senna looked at and Cleaned. 2 were bad and had to be replaced. Ordered replacements from the site Knoel suggested. Got them in on Monday and plan on switching the injectors around this weekend.

The race injectors might of been able to work with enough tuning. But Mona would of not idle at the normal and would need to be up around the 2,000 RPM range.

Have noticed a few of the Gen 1's starting to see clogged injector issues.
Another epic rebuild mate, nicely done.
