2013 F4 on order- exhaust options?

first of all hello everyone.
I have just ordered a 2013 standard F4 and am trying to anticipate what to do when It gets here. I have read a lot about fueling issues and flat spots in power and was wondering if the main culprit is the exhaust.

There are no factory pipe up fits available from MV yet and I do like the organ style exhaust instead of the round pipes. We where discussing options of a mid pipe, head pipe and mid pipe, or a full exhaust once it comes out.

I guess I am trying to find out if getting rid of the cat and flapper will make a gain in consistent power, an increase in DB and should I ride for 500 or so miles first?

Thank you for any help.
Jeff

Post Welcome to the forum Jeff

I have not seen any test on the 2013 F4's as yet, nor read anything about the fueling, so can't help you there. Where did you see these comments?

I would say wait till you have the bike, do some miles on it first, at least till the first service, before buying anything.

When the Y10 F4's came out, lot's of guys bought the expensive RG4's only to find they are hardly any lighter than the OE pipes and a terrible waste of money for most people.

Exhaust MY2013

As far as the fueling I have not heard of it on any 13's and am going off of the 2010-2012 reviews. I imagine there is no difference on the 13's as far as the fueling, but I may be wrong.
I think I have about a two month wait for the bike and am just kind of wondering if the exhaust un corks what the bike is supposed to be and if its worth the whopping $4200 US dollars the want for it, plus the ECU. the older (2010)exhaust was around 3k with about another 6 for the ECU.
My dealer had mentioned an option of a mid pipe that removes the Cat and Exhaust flapper and kind of eases things up and you save money not paying for the slip on which on an MV is a work of art and a huge part of what makes the bike unique.
I am trying to get a feel if it is that necessary because of cost or if it just a said "waste of money" because the stock exhaust looks fine to me. Flat spots are not what I want, as my current bike goes to 13,000 rpms predictable and as smooth as velvet.
I have the Carbon front fender and a seat (black and black suede sides with red stitching) on order from MV that would look Very cool on the Standard.


Thanks for any advise or direction,
Jeff

Jeff...

If you are thinking about removing the 2013 muffler assembly, I will buy it off you. I like the look way better than what came stock on my 2010 F4 and think it should fit just fine. Perhaps, help offset the cost of whatever you might put on the bike if you go down the route.

I can't speak for the new ones of course but in my experience replacing the exhaust definitely made a difference but the best and biggest difference is instead of exhaust getting an ecu with a proper tune on it.

Jeff, I have a 2012F4R and have not noticed the flat spot in power band. I agree with the recommendations to ride the 2013 thru perhaps the 1st service before starting exhaust/ECU changes.

congrats on the purchase. The 07 F4 is faster however. Just ask any owner of an 07 and they will tell you

Are you sure you're getting a 2013 model and not a 2012 sold in 2013.
There are massive changes from 2012 going into 2013 as already mentioned.

Where are you located?

I have not seen, and I just looked on MV italy site, exhaust options for the 2013 bikes, I imagine the headers and mid-pipe might be the same, but tailpipes and ECU will be completely different.
