Casoli Pipesgreenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
Hi all, I was wondering if any one out their has ordered colored pipes from Casoli and how long it took to get in. I placed my order right at 3 months ago and still patiently waiting. I keep getting the two more weeks answer when I ask about the progress. I am also interrested if any one has any type of used after market pipes for sale. 3 months is a long time if you can't ride, so I would like to buy another set of pipes until my Casoli pipes come in. Thanks for any help or advice! Kevin Orlando

Again, I apologize for the delay. I didn't think it would take this long but we have been swamped and behind on some orders. I know that doesn't ease the pain of being without pipes for your bike and not being able to ride!!
I do have a set of brand new Titanium pipes that I just mounted on my bike that have 0 miles, I started it once to see what the sound was like but the bike hasn't moved. I will let you have them at cost if you are interested. That way you can ride with these pipes until your Casoli pipes arrive and be able to turn around and sell them and not lose any money. Just give me a call.

Are you in the USA. I live in Houston and I have a Casoli conversion on my bike. It looks good and sounds good. The only problem I have with them is the extremely poor business ethics that Dave has. I paid him 1000 pounds deposit and received my exhaust within a week. The only problem is having him to refund the core charge (1000 pounds) after he received my stock exhaust. It has been a month and a half and every time I call him he claims that he credited my account. But that hasn't happened yet. I finally had to contact my credit card company and file a dispute with Casoli. Shipping was almost 150.00 US dollars each way. On the high side. When I put my order in Dave informed me that shipping should only be about 60 US dollars each way.
Good luck and enjoy your MV,

Thanks Sunday! I will take you up on your offer! Sunday at Four Star has been cool to deal with. I think the problem with Casoli is that they are a victim of their own success. I have spoken with David and he seems nice and sounds like he has good intensions. Maybe a little under staffed. I would perfer if he told me it is going to take sevral months rather than repeatedly saying two more weeks. I know their is a lot of future business depending on the out come of this transaction. I want the best for my MV so I will continue to wait for the pipes. Thanks to Sunday I will now be able to ride until they arrive. Kevin Orlando, Fl

Kevin, I have purchased many parts for my M.V from Casoli & never had a problem with delivery.I had also thought about the cans but decided to go for Carbon fibre cans from leo vincanio cost about £600pounds including chip / approx $410.00 usd. The bike then was put on arolling road type dyno & was putting out 119.8bhp at the back wheel & top speed 171mph.
I often visit florida area twice a year & am going back there in July for three weeks , it funny when you visit daytona beach bike shops with M.V Paddock ,Jacket T shirt & cap these guys reckon I play golf as they have never heard of M.V , the clearwater boys also are jap crazy. Hope everything goes well with your pipes . Stay away from the Senna M.V as my brother just bought one & the engine went at 400miles seems to be common problem.
