Yeah I understand. Can't wait to get mine serviced, kitted out and then go out and thrash the balls off of it.

I've got a Mistral exhaust (the carbon cone old school style) showing up on Friday. Hoping that'll make it bark like a big dog. Not too big mind you. Don't want to ring my own bell like I've accidentally done with Ducati's in the past but the stock is a bit to subdued for my taste. If you haven't located this place yet:

They've got a good number of the "necessities". Moto International in Seattle is also very good about tracking down items as well.

Dude, I have already been drooling over on the mgcycle site. But damn, some of those slip-ons are rather expensive. The one you have on order is a fave of mine as well. I found a pic of a slip on thats I really like made by some other euro company that I cant think of right now. Thats the pipe I am trying to track down, but Im figuring it to be really expensive. Oh well, guess I better get used to it.

Is it Zard or GPR? Agostini perhaps?

Nailed it, Agostini.

The one I found a pic of somewhere, has a matte black canister and carbon end cab. It's glorious.

It made it hard to find later after I had forgotten exactly what it was called and was googling random Italian sounding gibberish that started with the letter "A".

Do you know of any American retailers for them?

Agostini will sell directly to you: http://www.agostinimandello.com/

Or, you could contact someone like Todd at Guzzitech in SoCal to get what you need: http://forum.guzzitech.com/index.php

That's what I was going to say. I think they sell directly. Haven't seen any resellers in the US. This is where I ran across them:

Bama, did you pickup the bike?

Finally got mine tarted up and road ready:







Took a while to find a close match for the paint on that Givi A750 screen. It's not perfect but it's very very close. If anyone needs it the details are: Paint: CHEML-8Z, code: EG11330

how do you like the mistral slip-on? have you touched the fueling at all (or feel like you even need to)? are you running it with the baffle in?

i made the the termignoni accessory slip-on part of the deal when i bought my griso this spring.....and i'm still waiting for it to show up...

i've about run out of patience with piaggio, and am giving the mistral serious thought.

I like the quality of the Mistral and I think it looks a lot better than the factory (garbage as come call it) can bolted to the side. The sound without the baffle is very nice. Deep without being raspy. Not as deep as something like a two bros but deep enough. Unfortunately the fueling sucks with the baffle out. I put it back in and it runs a lot better. Even with the baffle in the sound is still much better than the factory can produces. I'd sure like to find someone who has the tools and ability to change the fuel mapping on these ecu's. If you find anyone who can do that please PM me.

Just got a V7 Classic and I need advice about the MG forums. I have found a couple, I'd like opinions about which are best, have the most traffic, etc.
