What do I need for my 2005 1000S

Guys I turn to you for all of your years of wisdom and experience.
I just bought a basically brand new 2005 F4 1000 S and I know I'm getting a racing water pump and aluminum fans but do I need a microtec ECU to kick the fan on sooner? What else can I do to keep her from hitting 220F in traffic. I avoid it at all costs but sometimes you can't help it. I really am a street bike newb and I could use all the help I can get. Also, is a cat delete and exhaust system going to net any gains or just heat my bike up further. Thanks guys.

Welcome to the forum mate, show some pics of the bike when you can. There's a few options available for the type of ECU used on your bike, it can be sorted by using a well tuned EPROM chip, or the Microtec, all depends on your budged and how much you'd like to get out of it.
A decat will help with the heat, definitely a good thing. Have a read through the performance section as well as customising section for more tips.

Don't panic about upgrading.
Jesus Christ ride the bike, get used to it and have fun.
Ottawa doesn't sound like it being so hot as Arizona.
If You really experience over heating than You can still fix it in the winter.

The microtec ECU is an extremely expensive way to get the fans to kick in earlier, if you are concerned about city/slow riding, then consider a simple fan override switch. Should cost about 5% of the cost of the microtec ECU fitted and dyno set up, virtually nothing if you can fit the switch yourself.

I hit my fan switch as soon as I slow to less than 40mph in town/city, works a treat! The pump and alloy fans should along with actually turning the fans on, be all you need to do.

Thanks so much for the input guys. I like the manual override switch idea. Any pics of where you guys have it mounted? And how it looks?

In my opinion the Microtec is not just a system to allow the fans to switch on at a lower temp.
It is an incredibly advanced ECU that will transform the fueling & therefore the performance of your bike - a bonus is that you can set the temp that the fans switch on.

More from The Knurl on this shortly, I'm sure.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

But if you're looking to install a third fan then you won't do better than follow this thread by the dearly departed Lee Halverson:

Welcome to the forum. The thing you need for an F4 is a long and winding road.
If we want to commute through downtown..get a Honda Melody ; )
When these bikes are used for their true purpose ie giving them the beans out on the twisties..they dont overheat...Try it.

I'm fairly new to the MV Agusta family and this is something that I focused on from the beginning. On researching the issue I found that there are quite a few things that can be done and they vary in $$$ outlay considerably. So it depends on how fat your wallet is. I have chosen through necessity to start small and work upwards depending on effect.
On purchase, my bike already had aluminium fans and engine ice. I have installed the manual switch which is a very simple and clean fit and works well. The other small thing I've done is remove the silver mesh bits that infill the openings at the rear of the fairing(don't know if your bike/model has these) to allow the air to move completely unrestricted over the engine and out. I'm working towards the De-cat idea.
I also will work towards heat wrapping the exhausts in different spots like the headers to reduce heat at the front of engine. (thanks Donsy for that one).
My first summer with the MV is approaching so these relatively inexpensive mods will be put to the test but I agree with Joe, these bikes are meant to be ridden at pace and are quite a round peg in a square hole when ridden in a city environment.
