  1. VFR8/DucatiST series are very close in terms of rider triangle, power and bag accommodations... with our VFRs being a bit overweight and underpowered in comparison. The MV TV is about the only thing I can find in the 400# / 120HP / Bags and “Sport / Comfort” body positioning. From what I’ve gathered from many friends with F3’s, they are pretty robust once you get them dialed. The biggest complaint had been track performance with electronics, mostly sorted with the Magnelli track ECU kit. It has to be pointed out both the VFR and ST2/3/4 have electrical issues. I’m not sure anyone here is to judge the reliability of current MVs without some more data to draw from. Personally I’d love to try it, it’s lighter, more powerful, looks more comfortable and ISN’T what everyone else is offering these days... a ADV bike for the street. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Can’t believe nobody’s mentioned MV’s Turismo Veloce.. http:// https://www.mvagusta.com/en/model/turismo-veloce/800 I think this might be the only real sports tourer left... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. PM’d, just keep me posted. This is too amazing not to get in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Still taking deposits for 5th gen headers? Not in a rush, but the progress shows! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. NGK. Time and again issues seem to be with other brands. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. On our heavily built NC30’s, full on SBK builds we are running stock air-boxes and stock air filters. The only setup that nets noticeable gains (we’re talking 2.5 HP on our 80 HP 428cc engines) is fully open air boxes with either proper ram air and a sealed tank to make a big volume air box or open trumpets and an open tray. Anything K&N ish tend to not make more power than stock and cause running issues on the carb’s bikes. My engine builder is running FI too and going back to stock-ish airboxes and filters until he can find something better. Can’t do open anymore because any crash ingests dirt.

  7. Also glad to see his reference to Marren Fuel Injection. I sent all 8 of my BMW 540i’s injectors to them when I did my timing chain and guides service. I was extremely happy with the results, and the car purrs like a kitten. So smooth... it’s hard to imagine for a 18 year old car with almost 200,000 miles. Happy injectors are certainly a part of that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Rob’s a good dude and my local source. He loves having me wee four on the dyno [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’m hoping this is where we are heading, meaning these headers + this tune will amount to a proven recipe... and I’ll take a heathy midrange over peak #s any day of the week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Ha! Thanks.... waiting on a new header for my NC30 too. My TBR is a bit long in the tooth.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Can’t wait for the results. 99% I’ll be in for a 5th gen header. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’ve got maybe half a dozen different T-shirt’s from Blipshift, mostly car stuff from google but bike stuff is around from time to time. Here’s one of my faves. http:// https://www.blipshift.com/products/inlinefourus-rex?utm_source=blipshift+Updates&utm_campaign=e9fd6978ae-Inlinefourus_Rex_10_4_2016&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_0513fd2cb9-e9fd6978ae-345897081&mc_cid=e9fd6978ae&mc_eid=82c519f7b6 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. 11,800 miles on mine..... got a ways to go [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Plus with a race bike who cares.... you’re gonna be servicing that area regularly and bearings are cheap. Tapered takes the hits from heavy bikes and bad roads and withstand infrequent adjustment (or being left at 3.3 lbs.-ft. [emoji6]) better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
