    250 quattro

    Hi guys, I have just acquired this bike. It's quite distinctive with 2 front discs and an oil cooler. I believe its recently had work done by a member of the benelli motobi club.
    Do any of you have any knowledge of the bike
    Regards

    mcn ex quattro

    i owned 1 back in 1980 got it 3 months before my 17th birthday the shop in Coventry kept it till I was 17
    it was a ex mcn demo bike , I wrecked it and then traded it for a x7 all these years I thought it had been scraped
    but ive found out someone rebuilt it and had it in a private little collection ever since
    hoping that 1 day the guy will let me see it again

    That's a great story. Just out of interest, how did the x7 and benelli compare. I owned a lot of small two strokes back in the 70s and 80s, but it's hard to remember how they performed. I have a two stroke benelli now as well so at least I have that as a benchmark

    like both the quattro sounded great everyone flocked around it
    also when i got the benelli they had to get me a sticker for the speedo because it was in kph
    also had to have a steel petrol tank when I bought it it had a plastic tank

    Hi, I took the rocker box off mine to retorque head after rering and 300 miles. Found chrome flakeing off most rocker arms. Trying to decide which way to hardface that's compatible with cam. I also have carb issues, never got it to rev out clean. I've heard of the Benelli Motobi Club GB and wondering if there is some useful information there before I join.

    Hi. There is a lot of knowledge in the club and on this forum. Having said that, my bike has had work done by a member of the club before I bought it, but it still doesn't run that well. Fickle things I guess. Good luck with it. I'm looking forward to freezing evenings in the garage over the next few months

    I was a member of the Benelli Motobi Club GB, but I let my membership lapse a few years ago. Not that I had any problem with the club, but I felt it was more relevant to folks living in UK than me on the other side of the world in Tasmania.

    I did find some useful information relevant to my 900 Sei through the club though. If I was living in UK I would have kept my membership and maybe would have become more involved in club activities. Seems to be a well organised and friendly club, with some technical expertise.

    Hello to Steve Peace and others on the club committee.

    Thankou Cameron for your kind words we try very hard to solve problems and the 250 fours are difficult to set up but when they are, there is no finer sound than that GP racer sound coming from that tiny engine. All the best to you in Tasmania
