  2. Love the Rosso! Mines almost finished being spruced up after a hibernation; 100% original just love that very special mica red
  3. i think i have number 395 Rosso Mandello
  4. Hey all I am giving the old girl a spring clean and a spruce up. I cracked my screen and don't think i can get an original replacement. Luckily, the beautiful carbon fairing is in perfect condition and now super clean. While I was cleaning it I noticed an original sticker inside which gave me a very exciting clue; ser no. 395. Now being part of the second batch mine isnt numbered (first 300 were specially numbered models I believe). However, the ser no on the screen made me wonder is this a clue to its heritage? I have no reason to believe the screen isn't 100% original bei
  5. I know im four years late, But i have a second edition model, pretty much original down under in Sydney. Carefully stored for the last year.
  6. Hi All Long story short, I'm trying to locate (ideally) 2 carbon fairings as per my V11 Rosso Mandello original fitment. They are small, neat and headlight mounted. Aftermarket is ok, but carbon is a must. I can have screen made if need be. Any help much appreciated (tired googling and ebay'ing cant find anything) nigev11

  8. Raz cheers mate, much appreciated! The torque wrench is at the ready with anew set of bits; I'm off to the shed
  9. hey all a long time ago, i learned the value of carefully tightening critical bolts to the correct torque values. the manual has a list of them, but I cant find specs for the main frame/engine bolts, which to me would both suffer a lot of vibration and potentially upset handling and vibes if wrong. Anyone know what the values for these bolts and nuts should be? nigev11

    Heated Grips

    hey buzzard I just did a 6000km ride Sydney to Alice Springs to Sydney and that desert night air was cooooooold. I bought some oxford heaters on the way back and they saved my life. I agree the buttons are fiddly
  11. looking for a lemans fairing to fit to my rosso mandello for touring; anyone got one? Condition unimportant
  12. FOLLOW UP; POST REPAIRS hi all; just a quickie to let you knwo how it all panned out. Roper kindly replaced the suspect outer needle bearing with alow cost non standard item. Slightly different length, no problem. Refitted a replacement outer washer (was missing) Fitted new wheel bearings (no problems) Checked the cush drive; all perfect and clean and even came apart well. Drilled and greased the cush rubbers, replaced the brocken cush drive friction gasket, fitted s/s screws and anti seize paste. Got a new spindle (nyloc) nut from the local bolt shop for $2.40. Re-asse
