f1000 312r service manual

brand new to the forum and a bit green


after many many years dreaming about owning an mv. yesterday i took the plunge and chopped in my ktm rc8 for one.
im a little concerned on reading the book that comes with the bike that everything seems to be a service centre job...
unless im missing a manual it appears as though you cant even tighten the chain yourself ?? surely this cant be right.

please does anyone out there have some sort of service manual for the bike. also my toolkit seems to be missing essential spanners for front and rear wheel removal.
are these things that must be bought seperately.
with the ktm you could virtually strip and rebuild the machine with the toolkit and manual.
any help will be greatly welcomed.

It's not a KTM, they have more info...

Don't bother with the tool kit on the MV its hopeless. If you want to remove the wheels, time to buy some sockets!

There are some manuals available for download, when approaching the bike mechanically think of it as the offspring of a Ducati superbike and a jap four-cylinder and you won't go far wrong.

You will find significantly more information on this website than in the manual that comes with the bike.
Use the search function near the top of the page if you have any specific questions. Try key words like "F4 manual"
As for the rear wheel removal, the nut is 55mm and is tapered (slightly) so it's best to source a specialised CNC machined socket that fits correctly. It's reverse thread and will be the sort of thing that requires a buddy to help you out.
Welcome to the site.
Get your bike on the registry and post us some pics!
Dave.

The manual is brilliant, I agree. The distance from any dealership means you wouldn't get it back to the house before it needed to return for another adjustment.

Not that I'm much of a spannerman on modern machinery, but it seems mostly standard. I've had a couple of jobs done by jap bike mechanics - the chain adjustment is the same as a VFR Honda apparently.

Service Manuals are written in a way to cover their arse, hence advising you to have the work done by dealers which is correct

depends how familiar you are with bikes, but most work can be carried out by someone with mechanical ability.

Chassis manual

Daz;
it down loads fine ....

i paid ProItalia for one, but MV Agusta USA said "use the pdf" i guess $100+ wasn't enough????

gee a spiral back B&W manual for $100+ what, they're losing money on that?

like i want to scroll down with greasy fingers on my laptop in the shop

they got me the engine manual though

the electronic geeks just don't seem to realize some times you need to flip back and forth between pages and write notes/corrections where you NEED them on the pages, you are looking at!!!
