Yeah man it sucks to be me...

However, things could be much worse, I'm forecasting about 7.5k in parts comfortably, the bike and all the mods owe me about 8k in total... Maybe a touch over that. So I'll nearly break even..

I wouldn't let my bad luck put you off. Valve train would appear to be a weak spot over all year RSV4's... But most bikes are fine. It's just a calculated risk. I might even take another punt one day. It's worth it just for the soundtrack

How do Marko, I know it's not time yet but had to share this with you...

Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252860580624

It's the Frank "Raffle" engine that sells itπŸ˜‚

I saw that... Seems too good to be true, it should be way more expensive than that!

I'm getting another road bike for the rest of this year. Dunno what yet. MV F4 and Honda SP2's are taking my fancy. But really I don't know... Next year I'll sell up again and buy a full time track bike (jap4 this time!)

I just don't trust it if he can't even get Wrathall right ...
You can pick up a nice 1198 for that kind of cash Mark, don't you fancy one of them? I do love the F4's, not entirely convinced on the reliability of them thoughπŸ€”. My mate chopped his in for an S1000RR , although he chops them in every couple of month's .

Yep it sucks to be me right now guys but really, things could be worse... I won't be too much out of pocket, just losing a few months of good weather and a fair bit of labour breaking and packing bits... but I'll get over it! Already excited for whatever comes next!

I'm fairly sure there was something on Af1 a couple of years ago about Aprilia telling dealers that they wouldn't warranty valve related engine issue with AR Cans on bikes. Think it was due to lean conditions causing accelerated valve seat wear.
 
Didn't your bike have one fitted by the previous owner ?

I have read about the short open cans causing valve failures. And yeah mine had a gp1 fitted. It did also have a race ecu (which should fix the lean running) but that was fitted by the previous owner and he only had the bike about 8 months... maybe the damage was already done?

The counter argument to that is the fact that bikes have dropped valves with Akra slip ons, and even std exhausts... all based on threads on af1.

SP2 is high on the list. It's s bucket list bike and so would be a good opportunity to try one... won't be anything like the performance of the v4, or even my old gen 2, but you just don't need huge numbers on the road to have fun

Just read all this and remember the post starting .
What a real bastard!
Even more,how disapointing !
I wanted to buy the V4 Tunono 1100 but chose the Yam MT 10 over it because of the unknown with the valves on the 1100 and valve service tool availability at the time and cost .
Don't get me wrong i love them , but i'm glad i stuck with my choice after reading this,and that's not to say the 1100 suffers the same problem . I'd be like you ,facking beside myself had i chose the V4 and that had happened .
I used to be uncertain , but now i'm not sure anymore

Pretty sweet isn't it Marko, tidy price even with those bits though, there's a 1098R on eBay for less than that, love to hear that Ladybird system though
