I've wanted a Piaggio MP3 500 ever since I first saw them! I've also been lurking this site on and off since then, hoping to pick up some useful tips, tricks, and fixes. I must say, I've learned a lot from everyone's contributions, so thank you all! As the saying goes, "To know the road ahead, ask those who are coming back." That being said, I would like to ask you all for your opinions on the following:
What modifications, additions, or fixes do you wish you would have done to your MP3 earlier?
(For reference, I picked up a 2008 Piaggio MP3 500ie with 13,000 miles, because I absolutely love that aggressive front look! The mods it came with are a taller Givi windshield, Givi topcase w/ brake light, lighted handguards, LED turn signals, added driver backrest, and "tunnel bag". I already checked the radiator hose issue, and it's tightly zip tied to the fan itself, no apparent wear. Also, this model does not have a footbrake, only two handbrakes.)
