Yo! I am very sorry to hear what happened to your F41000. Itallians makes a wonderful performance bikes, but they have a very lousy aftermarket support. Hope you break-in your bike properly during the first 5,000kms. as what normally should be done on bikes, though 1,000kms sometimes are good enough.

Good luck!

Just curious, the F41000 has been out for less than 12 months and you've only riden 3000 miles. How can you be out of warranty ?

Where does it say it's a mille?It may be a 750,or am i missing something? The problem may also be something as simple as the old oil filter problem leaking oil onto the exhaust or another oil leak onto the pipes. Did it also make a lot of nasty noises?
