    New Benelli Tornado Tre 1130 0 mile

    Hi,
    long story short, the bike came to my country, connected to a truck jump started, ECU fried.
    After a few years (14? the bike finally was restored, and its 0 mile on all aspects.

    I has a Athena ECU, that is not close in size compared to the original, but all in the bike works.

    There are minimal scratches, and a lot of things to adjust, but looks all is working.

    Its a 2006 one, please let me know if that year-model had the Z25 issue fixed, and there are another high priority mods I need to do?

    Thanks!

    No. The factory hadn't yet worked out what the cause of the problem was, let alone fixed it on the assembly line.

    Thank you, just ordered the new pieces... do you think I need to take care of something really urgent additionally?

    Welcome, have you just bought the bike? If so that's a good find. Which country do you live in? Post some pictures we all love pictures, well some don't if they are too big but never mind.

    if your eyes tell you the tyres looks too similar to the original 2006 Factory ones… then dont go to the oculist

    all the bike is (was**) entire from 2006, including the coolant, engine oil, tyres and brake fuilds.

    **first thing I did was to change all that, except of the tyres, I will end the brake in (1000km and thats all) and then do the Marzocchi fork oil change, and as I have the Wheel off the bike, will change the tire then.

    also, at 1000km Will do the Z25 shaft upgrade.

    Do you think the original Z25 should last the first 1000kms of the bike rigth?

    Probably, but why would you wait?
    You are working on it now, so just do it. I would.

    bike has a lot of things to fix, so I like to make it 1000kms, then fix them all at once.

    I prefer to not dissasable and reassemble the bike every week for a new event...

    Are there cases with failures related to the Z25 shaft with less than 1000km???

    I don't know. Certainly if you have the hot start issue, that will manifest itself immediately, and while a shaft is being bent every time it makes a turn, it is being fatigued. I wouldn't risk it, but then I'm a little paranoid about such things. I replaced mine several years before one broke in a Tornado. Before that no-one was suggesting that the Tornado had any problem with it.
