2001 F4

What's going on everyone! I just bought my first MV after a long 6+ year wait from when I first discovered them. The bike is great but I have a few issues I was hoping some of you could help with. I did search the forums but I just wonder if these are related. My turn signals do not work. I replaced the relay and nothing and I checked all the fuses on the right side of the bike. I am going to check the contact points under the front nose after reading another thread. Also my neutral indicator does not work, so I cannot start the bike with the kick stand down. Also the kick stand doesn't stay in the correct forward position unless you force it. Possible spring issue? Thanks for your feedback!

Welcome to the forum mate.
You're spot on to everything, download the manuals from my site if you've not done so already, then have a look through the Maintenance and Tech tips sections here on the forum for help on various problems.
1. Indicators most likely the nose fairing brackets. Patience with this one.
2. Neutral switch wire runs up from underneath the motor near the rear shock on the 750's, unplug and touch the loom side to earth, if the light comes on then you have a faulty switch, a bitch to swap out.
3. Sidestand is probably the spring or has been repaired, they can break occasionally.

as a follow up on what Donsy said about the nose fairing, if you remove the nose fairing it is better to loosen the 2 screws holding the mirrors to the brackets before removing the nose fairing. It allows the brackets which secure the nose fairing to the nose section to come loose more easily. If you force those brackets the little retainers may break off.

No it doesn't stay in the most forward position on every MV Agusta, at least of the first generation.
Yeah it is some odd design feature but You get used to it.
Latest if You have to buy spare fairings.
Just make sure You push the kickstand forward before You lean the bike on it.

A year later and I am finally getting back to you guys. The forum wouldn't let me post, but its all good now. Anyway thanks for the help/replies. The turn signals was a compound issue. I believe it was the contact points under the nose fairing. Once that was corrected I found a broken bulb in one of the turn signals. All good now.

I did not have time to work on it over the winter, but I just changed the oil and cleaned and lubed the chain and I am going to have someone help me take the tank off so I can diagnose the neutral issue. Hopefully it's just some corrosion from sitting around (2001, with 1,700 miles).

I do have another question. Did these bikes come with a stock trickle charge connection? I am going to say no, but I couldn't find a straight answer in the forums. I replaced the battery and the charger connection connected to the bike looks to be ground to the frame and then power ran to fuses on the left side of the bike, but it does not work. Maybe its just a crappy connection, but I might just run it straight to the battery.

The straight answer is no.

Most folks just add a charging pigtail directly to the battery with a fused positive line.

Be especially mindful of polarity...the negative terminal is toward the front of the bike.
