    Need help, 1130 TNT Cafe Racer

    Hi

    I have a 1130 TNT Cafe Racer that I purchased as a 2010 model with 750 km on the clock. When the bike arrived it would not start so i changed the battery. After several attempts (30) it started but died again. The sound of the engine was for me ratteling.
    The cover for the rear seat was loose and i managed to find out that there was a rubber part missing. The color of the cover was not identical to the rest of the bike, and there was 1 litre of engine oil missing even though it just came from service.
    As my knowledge of these bikes are zero i and i was looking for the missing rubber part i looked at the chassis number of the bike and found out it was a 2007 model.
    I contacted the seller but he refused to cancel the deal so we ended up in court.
    I need information on technical differences between 2007 and 2010 models if any. Price differences between 2007 and 2010 (I know i can buy a 2007 model for 5K less then what i payed), Are there any known faults on the 2007 models, ( I was told by the original owner of the bike that he had replaced the coil this is amazing on a bike with 750 km on the clock.). Are there any color differences on the carbon part of covers and the rest of the bike. The bike is gold.

    ANY COMENTS WILL BE APRESIATED

    I have 08 1130 cafe racer.
    You have a very rare bike, less than 20 example in the uk. Being a small scale Italian manufacturer exact specs year on year will be tricky, however I suspect no difference between 07 and 10. Probably just a late registration.
    Assume yours has non radial front brakes? That is the norm.
    Personally I very much doubt a 5k difference between an 07 and 10 plate, certainly not in the uk.
    As far as your problems are concerned I would suggest as follows,
    Coil sticks can fail due to moisture ingress. At a guess I would say fouled plugs and dodgy coil stick behind your starting issues.
    Rear seat cowl is a sloppy fit on mine.
    The engines are indeed rattly due mainly to a lack of sound deadening so noise may not indicate an issue.
    Got to say buying a 10 (or 13) yr old bike with such low mileage suggests it would be in need of proper recommissioning.
    The rarity of these bikes means that a decent knowledge of them is beneficial.

    I have had mine 5 yrs now not missed a beat.
    Good luck !

    How much did you pay? Only asking because a 5k difference between 2007 & 2010 is a bit optimistic.
    Where in the world are you?
    It may have been manufactured in 2007 & registered in 2010.
    Yes the engines are a bit rattly, the rear seat cowl is loose on mine too.
    Post a picture to show the colour difference.

    Was it a dealer or private seller?

    Thank you for your reply-

    I will have to look at the brakes, and the plugs could be a good starting point. The bike was stores in the previous owners living room so moisture i not very likely, The bike was serviced when i got it, but you may be right,
    Do you know if the Fuel injection system is the same on 2007-2010, believe there are two different types used on these bikes.

    I paid 15,000 GBP and i can buy one low milage in Norway from 10,000,- GBP

    Hi, Thanks for the reply.

    I am in Norway,

    I paid 15,000,- GBP for it as it was a 2010 in the add.
    The add was in a company name but i found out that it was a private sale from a person working there.
    It is a 2007 but first registration was 2010, there were issues with the bike from day one, It came with 2 exhaust pipes one carbon and one stainless, i do not think the bike has been tuned for the carbon.
    The problem is finding anyone in Norway with tools etc to lookout the bike. I do not have a good picture of the bike that shows the difference in color.
    The Cowl is high gloss and the bike is not, my first impression is that the cowl is made from carbon and that the factory used different clear on them. I was told it was suppose to be like that.

    WHAT?? HOWFKINMUCH?????? Was it bought from the UK? I have paid nowhere near that for my low mielage Century racer.

    I "may" be wrong but from memory the later ones use a different ECU.

    There are some pics of my bike here, there's no difference in the colour of the cowl on mine that I can see.

    I'll go against most people here, but as far as I'm concerned it's just a bike, any mechanic should be able to work on it, I'm far from an expert but I have never had an issue working on mine (Apart from getting alex from Maniac motors to remap it remotely)

    Most owners forums are the same, I have an MG, Saab and Hyosung bike as well as the Benelli's, in the past I've had classic Volvo's, fords & rally cars & they all say "you need a specialist to work on it, not just anyone" If a mechanic is good, not just a fitter they'll be able to sort it out.

    I used to work at a garage repairing cars, not once did it ever cross my mind to say "I'm not working on that" if it came in with a fault you had to fix it whether it was a Mini or a Bentley (yes we had both come in)

    This is how I sorted my loose seat cowl.

    Looks identical to mine. Have you checked the serial numbers on yours to see when it was produced.

    No, I've never bothered, it doesn't matter to me. I liked it, I bought, I loved it, I hated it I bought another Benelli

    Was yours bought in Norway or the UK?

    Regarding your exhaust, it may not have been tuned for the carbon exhaust, but if it had been it probably wouldn't run right on the standard can.
