Welcome to the club!

The Mp3 may not be the fastest bike out there but its a beast in the twisters and plenty of cargo.

This form is full of mods and info including
* LED headlights
* EVAP Canister removal
* Tires and wheels
* Break-Fix
* So much more.

If you have a question just check the forums as someone has probably already answered it and if not then we're a helpful bunch and support eachother.

Get the extended factory warranty (4 years total) prior to you driving it off the showroom floor.

The extra cost of the warranty can easily pay for itself.

Piaggo Tool Kit C-Spanner Sources

The only really valuable thing in the tool-kit is the C-Spanner that is bent 90 degrees. This allows you to adjust the suspension spring that is otherwise covered by the exhaust. Without this tool you would have to remove the exhaust in order to access and adjust the spring tension.

The rest of the toolkit is a mix of #15 and #20 (#25?) torx drives, a fixed crescent wrench, and a spark-plug / tire-lug tool.

Most everything else in the tool-kit can be done with regular off the shelf hardware store tools (in metric)

The tool kit I carry with me on most trips is extensive as I like to be able to self-rescue. I can list it all out here if you want but really you have to tailor it a bit for what and where you ride.

My 2020 does not have a tool kit. I'm not even sure that it has the shock adjuster.

My second hand 2020 just came with the shock spanner, make sure you get the dealer to check the front brake lever does not touch the windshield, some are still coming like that

The tools are hiding under the mat in the pet carrier
The shock tool will help you take off the gas cap, a small dab of never sieze on the threads helps
The original owner of mine removed the strainer from the gas tank inlet, I think it makes it easier to fill, still far too easy to make a gas splash when filling

Drill out the rivets for the evap, clip the hoses
Start it put you finger over each hose, plug the one with vacuum, shove the open one out of the pet carrier so the fumes vent between the panels

Mine 2022 comes with the clear also, and I don't like it

Is a way to purchase a tinted windshield?

Or use some tint wrap (as for the car windows) a not to much dark? Someone do it with good results?
