    I know exactly your frustrations, my thoughts are though when you pay the full money 6 weeks before completion everything should of been ordered and every bike uses similar running gear why is there no stock?, I waited three weeks for a left hand side engine case and another three weeks for carbon fibre,for some reason they hold no stock of anything hopefully you get it soon and get a couple of runs before the weather turns.

    Hi there, in 2012 I waited 9 months for delivery to Switzerland. I thought UK orders had even longer lead times at that time...

    Isn’t the dominator bit different re the lambda sensors ? & all euro 4 bikes are satisfactory on the fuelling

    Four years and 8500 miles of ownership I have a reliable bike that starts, runs smoothly at tickover even when cold, that gets even better with speed. You will learn the foibles and sort out the niggles - just stick with it, there are many here who can help!

    I think so. Not sure how many miles you intend to do on it and you probably feel you are missing out on some good weather, but there will be plenty of sunny dry days through autumn and winter. Have you got a spare bike, need something Italian in the stable

    Yep, I've got a few bikes, the newest being a 77 Mk 3 Commando. But that's not really the point. The 961 would have been going to Spain in a couple of weeks.

    That’s not good Sam.

    When I saw your name in the pictures thread I thought ‘great... some pics of Sams Cali’!... sadly not...

    IF they’re really building 10 per week, and you ordered yours in Feb, they can’t possibly be that busy that sheer number of orders is causing your delay (they should have built 300 bikes from Feb to Aug inclusive).

    7 months and counting, and a string of excuses, is almost a return to the bad old days...

    why is there so little info from the factory about delivery times, either in general to let discussion groups know the likely situation for those with bikes already on order/ paid for, or updates to individuals as their orders progress? Speaks of a lack of customer relations training/principles.....

    Mine had shorties since day one. I have the standard pipes hanging in my garage. They have never had exhaust gasses through ‘em.

    Discovered these at Aldi, very nice at £1.25 each and 4.5% OG. I think the faded 961 in the background is quite artistic as well as me inside the bottle
