    I have a led brake light with integrated turn signals on the side plate bracket. The mistral exhaust is blocking it from the pic but it is there.

    Here's my V7 after I switched to a 940cc engine, updated the frame, and everything else for Bellagio running gear.

    Hi Hugo.
    Just a thought,.... the straight crash bars up front,..... I think, if you dropped the bike, they would just collapse and you would end up with engine damage anyway If they don't have a second mounting point, They would fold at the point that they are bolted to the frame. (the weakest point,since it has a hole drilled in for the bolts.) There are better, more effective crash bars, with 2 mounting points, that would better protect the engine in the case of an accident.

    Anyway, I hope you never need to find out. Stay upright.

    I bought this front windscreen from Carval23. Never liked the #7's. Even my wife laughed at the 7's. :(

    Agostini exhaust sounds divine. I'll add bar end mirrors next.

    VIN# ZGULWG007CM111546 - Ben Pilatti - Perth, Western Australia - picked it up a few months ago!

    Have chucked on some Lafranconis, Racer rearsets and Tomaselli clip ons so far. Half fairing and ECU reflash are up next!

    Welcome! Wow, you're the first I've seen with the Lafranconis. Are they loud?

    I thought they were loud but then I went for a ride with some of the Perth Cafe Racer crew and I was definitely the deepest and lowest frequency sound but not the loudest!

    In a nutshell they don't look as nice as the Mistrals or Agostinis but they sound incredible, especially when you really give them the business.

    When I get the half faring and paint done I might swap them out for something else. Although I'm addicted to the sound they make! It'll be hard to part with them...

    Looking good. I have those CRG arrows on my Ducati Scrambler. They are awesome mirrors. Where's the black panels? You should install it already.

    I'm not a big fan of the "7" either. Yours Looks real 70's. Fits the style of the bike nicely.

    I will put on the black ones this weekend....also need to do final adjustments to the screen/light. Currently the light is a bit down and the screen a bit forward but will all be tweaked shortly.

    Sold my 2008 8v Griso and got this V7II with some of the scrambler accessories. Almost 2,000 k on it and loving it. Loved the Griso, but happy to have made the switch. Plenty enough power and so much lighter. Next, suspension upgrade and all sorted.
