F4 Factory rearset adjustment

Hi to all,

I just joined and thank you all for the awesome information contributions you make daily. I have been reading these wonderful discussions for the last month and took delivery of a pre-owned '07 F4 1000 R yesterday (graphite/gray). I've learned so much from all of you.

Firstly, my manual is missing pages 129 - 160; is this common? Doesn't look pulled out of the bind at all, looks mint.

Secondly, the rearsets are adjustable per manual (the pages I do have), but states dealer adjust only, is this easy to do? I'm pretty adept at my other bikes, but MV is totally new for me.

Please advise on how to and thanks to all again.

Welcome and congrats on your purchase !

I also recently took delivery of an F4 and started experimenting with the rear sets myself. While it is not difficult to take them off and adjust, the real issue is that there is not so much adjustability to the stock rear sets. From what I hear, the Fast by Ferracci's are the best sets out there. FBF is currently out of them (expecting a batch from their machine shop any week).
Then on the other hand, that also what they told me about the water impeller and Muzzy fans which I ordered 2 months ago...and still haven't received...

Good luck !

they are easy to adjust. you have to take them off to do it but it's easy. Someone mentioned they stripped the bolt heads so be careful and make sure you have a good allen head.

I don't remember removing them for the adjustment, but I haven't played with them in two years. Once I got them where I wanted, I didn't give them much thought any more.

It was a pretty simple procedure though, but watch the tightening torques. You don't want to strip the threads out of the side plates.

you have to loosen the nut on the back so the easiest way is to remove the rearset

For your seats check with ADE from the seat factory he is a sponsor on here. His seats are completely custom to what you want and are top notch and price is unbelieveably reasonable!
