f4 1000s now running ok solution solved

hi all
after a lot of buggering about down the dealers
the faults found were as follows

fuel pump
fuel regulator

hense the reason she wouldn't start but the pump primed up and it did squel a bit
price including labour to repair

620 not bad for only 2700 miles obviously built to last

hunt around another pump assembly bought 160 including postage

garage rung me its fixed they say was running a bit rough so the plugs we're changed and its running sweet so they tell me
charge for fitting new pump etc 167

picking her up tomorrow pm 35miles ride home if it plays up i'm gonna torch the fucker

mv looks good but god not happy with reliability but well see what happens over the next few weeks before le mans
if the rsv4 wern't so bloody dear i'd be trading no questions asked

i'll let you know

No doubt about it, it's definitely frustrating at times- I tell myself it's a labour of love ! Like a beautiful woman, the highs are high & the lows are low !!!

To be realistic a fuel pump...hmmmm. it could be worse. You should see what some of my mates on their new Ducatis are going through. One just a got a new replcement...as the whole engine just seized...not nice.

Good luck.

At least Ducati fixed the bike by replacing it, and they sell in a lot more numbers than MV so you will see more problems.
First time I've heard of a bike being replaced, can't beat that for customer service. What are MV doing with all the problems their bikes are having?

Are you sure the fuel pump died? I've never heard of that happening on such a low milage bike.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
