Italian bike specialist
« on: July 03, 2021, 06:37:06 am »
Greetings dogs,

Asking on behalf of my brother. He recently bought a very nice mv Augusta f4. Previous owner had a mishap trying to wheelie the bike, hit neutral instead of second, causing the front end to drop excessively, this in turn damaged the instrument cluster. As a result this needs to be replaced.  Two options, buy a new one, +- R40k. Second option, he has found a second hand cluster for R5k, but this needs to be coded to the ecu. Does anyone have personal experience with an Italian bike specialist that would be able to assist?  He got the bike for a very good price, so is quit happy to go either way, just want reliable, honest advise.

Only people I would allow anywhere near the electrics of my Brutale would be FireItUp. They are the agents and it probably won't be cheap, but Italian bikes and electronic issues ... say no more
He can also ask for a bit of advice on the MV forum. Very helpful folks over there

Agree with McSack

Fireitup is your best option. They also look after my Aprillia and always do a good job.

Contact Primrose Motorcycles as well, maybe they could assist.
Theyre a bunch of italians that dealt with MV Augusta before.

Not sure if it will help as he is in PE, but Remi from RemiTech knows his way around Italian bikes. He is on Facebook.
