    Just got on this forum, Aprilia owner again having just sold my MV but before that I had a Benelli Tornado Tre

    Amazing character...but I can honestly say a very delicate bike to say the least. I have some funny pictures of me at the IOM with an elastic band being used to return my gear lever and mastic glue holding the oil from blowing out over the plug caps

    I also had all the Z25 issues, dash resets, stalling, warped disc etc

    I still have my Benelli TNT Cafe Racer. She's pretty to look at and so fun to ride, when she runs. That's the main issue. I had to put an afr on it to keep fueling in check, as no tune delievered by dealers or the factory did well. I was consuming at at rate of 27mpg US and always smelled like exhaust. Removed the air flaps, exhaust flange and cat. Swapped with a proper injector and redid all of my wiring to the starter and ground points. Now I am suffering a fuel leak of some sort and can't get the bike to start again. Before it would just drain the battery constantly.
    It's always something. The goal i have is to put a triumph engine in it or find a way to make the original benelli engine work.
