I'm confused guys. I bought an MV F4S in 2001, I've ridden it nearly 20,000 km, I've NEVER serviced it, none of the bolts have ever been turned on my bike (I know, but i'm a bird, what do you expect??) - anyway the confusing part is that I have never, ever broken down, or had a problem of any sort, it just keeps going... have MV sold out to the Japs I wonder...?? lol.

erm.....nope.....I usually just put the key in and go.....I figure if it needed anything it would've broken down, erm, I know, I shouldn't be allowed to own an MV...

Why you think this is clever is quite beyond me.

You shouldn't be allowed to own a C90, never mind an MV.

The only 'clever' bit is that I actually ride my bike and do track days on it, rather than buy something pretty to tell my mates about in the pub but only take out twice a year. It's just a bike mate. If you haven't got anything nice to say then please don't reply, life's too short.

Hi Skycat and welcome to this MV forum. WOW, you lucky person! I was expecting a story about a seized engine. In my experience, it only goes wrong when you take it in for a service! However, you should do your routine checks and service, your life could depend on it! Anyhow, take care and safe riding!

I just don't believe this. You've never serviced it in 20,000 km? What about your chain? Ever adjusted that? If not it should be shagged by now. Are you topping up the oil as it burns away? What about your brake pads, are the pistons eating the discs yet?

I seriously can't imagine anyone having bought an MV back in 2001 when a 750 would have cost top money and then neglecting to look after it to that extent, especially if they're the kind of rider who takes it on the track.

My guess is you're either brimming with shit, or your dealer takes pity on you and changes the oil behind your back when they change the tyres. (I assumed you've at least had to change them?)

Oops, I seem to have upset quite a few people with this, so here's some clarification...

1. No, I have never serviced it.
2. Yes, I do my tyre pressures... the rubber is the most important thing on any bike and I only run Pilot Sports. I spend a fortune on tyres as they only last about 1,000 miles or one track day.
3. Yes I top the oil up, but I've never changed it.
4. Yes the bike has done 20,000 km.
5. Yes I bought it in 2001, so I guess it was top money but it wasn't a lot of money to me.

My mates joke that it looks like it's been at the bottom of the sea for a year, but IT'S A BIKE.

JUST a bike. It's for spanking. I urge more MV owners to become MV riders - there is a big difference.

Gill.

Well, my Brutale passed 20,000 MILES last week (that's 32,000km) and I bought it in March '06, so I think I've got you beat on the 'riding' part, but I plan on riding it for many years to come, so I take good care of it, giving her fresh oil and plugs when she asks, and keeping the chain adjusted and tires fresh.
Honestly, your bike must run like pure crap by this point, poor thing.

If money isn't an issue, why not take care of the bike and get it serviced? It could save your life, FFS.

You're an idiot, or just full of shit. Possibly both :)

Gilly,
Your a right wind up merchant and some are taking the bait hook line and sinker!
We need more threads like this...totally refreshing. Post a pic of your MV from the bottom the sea, or better still lets see who can post the dirtiest and most used MV.
Safe riding!

I don't think anyone's convinced by this :)

A 'good' troll gets people angry and argumentative. skycat's just made people in this thread think she's a dickhead :stickpoke:

And what exactly am I trying to convince anyone of...?? Coz yeah my life is that sad that I really care what some dumb Aussie thinks. I'll post a pic of my MV next week once I've matt-blacked it to cover over the rust spots.
