Gen 2 heating???

Hello all , I have a 2007 F41000R with FebUr racing radiator , new racing water pump , Samco Hoses and Muzzy fans . I am seriously wanting to buy a NEW 2016-2017 F4RR. Do the new models STILL HAVE HEATING PROBLEMS?

No. It generally does not. The fans kick in and the bike stays one bar below max water temp on the gauge. You will feel the heat as the fans are running, of course, but it is stable in stop and go traffic as long as I have had mine.

Thank you fragile , looking at 2 2012 F4RRs . One guy I'm thinking hes tying to scam people saying the 2012 model is one off specialty model because its called Corsa Corsa . Tried to explain ALL 2012 F4RRs are Corsa corsa. he wants as much as 2016 model

Yes, all 2nd gen F4 RR are Corsacorta (short stroke). I think the seller might mean that the MY12 doesn't use an Eldor ECU, it uses the Magneti Marelli ECU. The other thing you 'might' like better with a MY12 is the lack of ABS. YMMV, but I found ABS-less front brake to be a bit more direct in feel *bear in mind I am comparing ABS-less radial of the F4RR with a standard F4 with ABS). I don't use the rear brake very much (due to bad habit developed over years) but I would imagine that if I got more serious and start learning how to use rear brake as well, then I think I'd appreciate having ABS.

Re' overheating, no, the engine doesn't overheat, but in traffic, and in spirited riding, the midpipe gets very hot and the heat from that go straight to back of right leg.

I have a 2012 F4RR and agree with all the comments posted. A lot of the heat is from the catylitic converter which if removed makes the bike run a lot cooler.

Pretty sure I can disable the ABS on my MY14 RR.

I meant to convey that the ABS'ed bike's front brake felt a little disconnected, even when ABS is not activated (possibly because of the extra hardware for ABS or additional brake line length??). But per my previous post the difference in feel (directness) could also be due to the different brakes hardware between an F4 and and F4RR as well.

It's been a while since I've ridden a sport bike without ABS so I couldn't say I notice any difference but I'm sure I'm just used to it. I'm, as you say, sure there is a difference even when disconnected.
