How hard it is to convert a 2 seater to a single?greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
Let's say two owners wanted to exchange a 2+2 silver to a mono red/silver.
In addition to the top body panels and seat, would it be a simple matter of switching the sub-frame, which holds the passenger foot rests?

From what I have heard in the past the latch is different on a mono tail when compared to the 1+1. I'm not sure for a fact though..

Thank. Yes, the latch is different from the mono v. bi. With the bi, I think you pull back and then lift. The mono just goes straight up.
But, I think if you were to switch the sub-frame, I'm not sure if that would make a different. Unfortunately, I don't have an MV to look at to see how difficult it would be.

Actually, I taked to Fast by Ferracci about this before I got a bike, cause I was planning to get a 2000 mono and convert it to a 1+1. The complete swap costs $2200. That includes a new subframe, tail, shock, and all nessesary brackets. I think going from a biposto to a mono requires that you probably only have to swap tails and subframes, though.

I switched my mono to a 1+1 and now back to a mono. The subframe and the heat shield are different, but you can use the mono's lock system on the 1+1. As far as I can remember the seat wings open the same on both.

I"m running sharkshins mono tailpiece on a 1+1 subframe and latch assy with the rear lock + cable assy deleted and it works fine
