Hi Doug,

I'm not sure about the exhaust but the shape of the tanks are exactly the same, although I don't know if the LE's is made from carbon fibre.

The LE comes with two tanks, one just like the standard Tre, and a carbon fiber one that's not street legal.

LE tank

LE comes with carbon tank and this is slightly larger (the part under the seat goes deeper than the standard one).

My carbon tank is street legal, why shoudn't be?

The muffler is Titanium and the fixing is different since the back pegs are missing.

LE

I checked my LE tank against my biposto. The size of the tank you see is exactly the same size as the tank on the standard. There is a small difference in the piece which extends underneath the seat. I am guessing it is because of the different single seat unit. I believe what was being said before was meant to be....it comes with two exhausts, one which is street legal and comes on the bike and the spare racing exhaust. I will check these tonight and get back to you. I don't think the LE can will fit the standard tre though.

Re: LE

I was about to purchase an LE here in the US a couple of years ago, brand-new, and it came with 2 tanks. Carbon fiber tanks are not street-legal in the US. It also came with 2 exhausts, one street-legal and one not, and a set of different sized sprockets.

Interesting

That is good to know as I plan on bringing my LE back to the states...I doubt that anyone in the recieving areas of a dock would know the carbon fibre tank from teh metal one but it is good info to know. What #Le are you loking at buying? Mine is 131.

Re: Interesting

I was going to be getting #69 in honor of Nicky. But I canned the whole idea when I was told I would have to have it serviced in Pennsylvania and would have no warranty. I live in California. So I ended up getting the standard Tre through GP Star in LA, much safer way to go (and just over half the cost of the LE).

Good Call

Good idea and Elias is a great guy. I get the feeling that he takes care of his clients. Did you get the hydralic clutch option from him as well? Any extra goodies? post a pic when you get a chance.

Re: Good Call

Yep, I've known Elias for several years, met him at the track when racing with AFM. Definitely a good guy. I did get the Evoluzione hydraulic clutch upgrade, along with some fancy levers, and the carbon fiber kit with front/rear fenders, chain guard, and oil line guard. I got to enjoy the Tre for only 4 months before I broke my leg (luckily on a different bike!) so I am quite anxious to get back on it. I'll get some pics up shortly....

Re: price

It was morbidly pricey :eek
The clutch upgrade was $500 including labor (that was done before delivery of the bike to me).
The fancy Evoluzione levers (which I'm not sure I like) were $165.
The Benelli factory CF kit was $700 including shipping.

Re: email

Sorry it took so long, I haven't been on the forum in several days.... just sent you an email!
Hmm, it bounced, so is it "johnharbour" instead of "johharbour"?
