Consumable sparepartsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
I am up to now a happy MV F4(1+1) rider in Belgium with around 20 000 km on the counter. 2 months ago I ordered new front brake paths and up to now my (official) dealer could not get any set. They are all used for the production line. I also ordered the set of 2 sprockets and the chain as the original one is used but the same situations occurs. I was also surprised of the very high price for the sprockets. Does any one have a alternative for the original sprockets ?? I hope I do not have to park my bike due to a lack of consumable spareparts for the coming months.

www.ferracci.com has a 2 piece rear sprocket solution. They have an Italian counterpart which should make it easier for European delivery.
As far as brake pads go, I believe people have tried non OEM substitutes and have had great success. Your dealer should be able to suggest a suitable one.
20,000 km! wonderful!

Have you tried ordering from the online store www.mvagusta-sp.com? Sometimes companies separate their inventory system between online and b&m stores. You could get lucky that MV has done the same.
