    Greetings Shane,

    Just curious what the parts availability for MVs are- I've heard stories of owners waiting months for parts and would like to hear your opinion, thank you

    Thumbs up Parts?

    TeddyG;

    I have 2 MVs, my '08 Brutale 910R just turned over 35,000mi the valve cover has has never been off (maybe, I bought it with 4,200mi)
    So far it's burned out 2 low beam bulbs(because the MicroTec ECU blinks the headlight......halogen bulbs hate that), the thermister for the low fuel light failed and the spring pin for the side stand
    wore out.......because it's my goto bike and ride it several times a day

    My '04 RSVR burned up 7 stators, 11 Clic clamps failed and the oil tank cracked in 30,000mi

    MV parts come from MotoForza in Escondido CA 760-746-6001 or Startwin Trading in Holland

    They're almost always in stock

    Well, I'll be honest, in NZ parts supply is slow. One dealer dropped the franchise due to poor support. We have 3 MV agents NZ wide. The longest we waited was around 21 days, the parts always arrived. Due to it's age, parts are starting to drop off the listings, no surprise there.
    I am now trying on-line sources. Star Twin trading looks good, as Noel says.
    It's a nice bike, the Mrs loves it, it's hers. For a 750, it sure gets along, pulls hard too. Handles well too. It's one of the "Special Edition" Diamante ones, all silver, I can't see anything else different about it.
    MV seems to get close to going broke, but somehow claw it';s way back from the brink. If you want a wicked fast bike with bugger all electronic aids, this could be the bike for you!

    Shane;
    What people don't understand in the NZ importer marks parts up 425% over USA retail
    Startwin shipping is expensive

    I'd go with MotoForza in Escondido and have your parts sent to me........
    I'll repackage it and send it to you by US Post, you'll owe me postage, I use PayPal

    Shipping time is USUALLY 3-6 days Worldwide
    EXCEPT Western Australia and the damn Channel Islands off the coast of France.......

    The Aussies have a 3 legged camel that drags the mail on a sledge across OZ
    The British Post puts mail for the Channel Islands in a waterproof container and throws it in
    the Channel.......and it drifts to the Islands ......EVENTUALLY!!!!!

    PM me if you want help
