Default Another day, another problem…

Yesterday, Friday October 5, Molly was to have the factory alarm installed along with the latest map (#47)
The tech got the infamous, STOP ENGINE, 0 Voltage, error on the dash before he’d had a chance to do anything. Funny, instrument panel error codes was the one problem my bike had not displayed and THE one I was most afraid of getting, far from home. What better then to have it happen to the tech while at the dealership?

On direction from the MV Canada rep Molly will be staying at the dealership until all issues are resolved..

Hopefully the error code is just a bad connection or sensor. The tech will go through the entire wiring harness inspecting connections and sensors.

Map #46 will be reloaded. According to the MV rep, Map #47 is for the US market only. NOT TO BE USED ON CANADIAN F3’s! Even though they refused to do this when I begged them to during Molly’s first service. What changed, I dunno?

Other issues to be corrected at this time include, incorrect gear indicated and corroded fasteners. The MV rep will be at the shop on Tuesday to observe and I assume report the findings to Italy. He's also bringing the new fasteners.

Incorrect gear indicator.... when I'm in 5th or 6th.... as I changed into that gear, sometimes comes up as N then after 10sec it corrects itself.
Seems like most bikes are making this error.
Good luck with the works!!!

Hope you don't have to wait as long as me! They've had my bike for 12 weeks now ? Apparently awaiting parts from moto gb ! Good luck with Molly.

Hopefully this will not all be in vein and your bike may serve as the model for a few recalls that all F3 owners may need (i.e. the gear indicator and error codes), although I do hate that it's happening to you.

Why oh why oh why do MotoGb and Varese combine forces to do this to their customers..
In my world I have to be on a hair trigger to react to customers every need..I have to think for my customers and breath their oxygen. I just don't get it.

Twelve weeks? Oy Vey!

Do you know what parts they are waiting for?
Did your bike display an error code and if so which one?
Or, is your bike in for one of the other known issues?


We'd really like to hear more from you. You posted back in April just before picking up your F3 but have been silent since then. I assumed you were out having too much fun with the bike to post. It looks like I was wrong, WAY wrong.

Default Ouch!

I would ask them to extend the additional time onto the factory warranty. After all, you're not getting the benefit of the warranty because you can't ride the bike.

Good luck my friend.

Pffft..... I experience the same probs with my new B3. Got it on 17/08/2012 and hardly had a chance to ride it. And the gear-indicator fail is the least of my worries....
