Reminds me of the F355 where you have to remove the entire engine to change the timing belts! Cost around 10K. No thanks, I will stick with my Japanese counterpart, only cost me $1700 parts and labor!

It's labor intensive, but there is nothing on the street that compares to the V4, in my 25 years as a tech and rider/racer nothing has compared to this thing, and I mean nothing.

And to think I was complaining that I had to remove two screws to replace my dirt bike exhaust the other day. I though one screw would have held it just fine.

and I spent 45 minutes putting the exhaust on my FZ10. Had to use a mallet because of tight fit of midpipe and header.

This is a rather keen comment I missed the first time through on that video:

"Half the bike apart and not a torque wrench in sight."

Oh my! That's certainly a good point. Never saw one used...

That is to maintain the originality of the questionable Italian quality control from the factory

Seems you have Ducati mixed up with Aprilia and Agusta. But thats ok.. All italians look alike. Honest mistake.
