the bike is a new '06 F4 1000. I was going to get a black 1098S, but decided to try the MV as I just sold my '04 Mille and still have my '00 996 that I have quite personalized. The 996 runs great and is a keeper.

The MV is my 5th Italian bike, so I my expectations are previously calibrated. I got rid of the Mille as it was not that inspiring (to me) - great bike, good finish, ran well.

I am sure that GP will stand behind MV. German has it now.

You'd be damned unlucky to find an MV that is less reliable than a 996. Seriously. My opinion is slightly colored because I have one that was screwed up before I got it, but I've had the damned engine open a bunch of times and it's way hokey in there compared to what I've seen on the MV.

So the MV has a slight cooling issue, and a fueling issue that everybody has these days. My opinion is that it's acceptable.

Still, on a bike that cost so much $$, water leaks should be at a minimum...

Question Scotts Stainless Steel Micronic Oil Filter

Hope this helps.

Please tell me more about the Scotts finned aluminum oil filter. I am interested in their Stainless Steel Micronic Oil Filter. MVs are not listed on their site. I contacted Scotts to put in my request. They will keep me posted if they make one available. --I wonder if MVs specs match with another bike brand filter.

The MV's take the exact same filter from Honda CBR600RR, I guess you can order the same SS filter from scotts designed for the 600RR.

the dealer answer

"As to your coolant leak, it is (strangely enough) quite common, and usually
goes away as the seal around the water pump housing expands. Obviously letus know if it becomes more of a concern and someone will be happy to take care of it."

I would hope they would take care of it. Not expecting this response regarding seal around water pump.

I have dealt with this dealer for years and I am starting to wonder.

Anybody with comments on GP MC in San Diego?

The bike also seems to have quite a lag when opening the throttle at ~4k RPM. Is this common? If so, what is the fix?

thanks
The waterpump on my Brutale always weeped and it got progressively worse as it hit 2700 miles.

I replaced the seals and updated the design to the new format.
Do a Search on the forum, there's been a few discussion on this already.

A wealth of information here:

This one is about the water pump:

Putting fins on an oil filter whether it be the filter itself or a slip on finned sleeve will have very little appreciable effect on the oil temp. That's a very small filter and there's next to no room between the headers as it is. Furthermore the filter sits right between headers 1&2 and is subjected to huge radiant heat from them which will negate cooling or even add to the temp. I've tried slip on finned cooler thingies on HD"s and they did absolutely nothing. Save your money.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Spring to preload water pump seal????

Hello MV/Duc Tech,
I don't have the manual for the F4's. I have an 07 Senna and am having the same running hot problems but have not hade any weeping from the pump. However I am having a hard time visualizing what you are talking about, I thought the seal to the water pump was an o-ring on the outer case.

Can you provide some pics or drawings of what you are talking about and a source where one would purchase this new higher rate spring?

I had a coolant leak that turned out to be where the #1 exhaust had rubbed a hole in the lower radiator. How bad does that suck?

I'm assuming this is coolant coming out the left side of my bike. How bad is this, and am I covered under my warranty? There was some even on the inside of my windscreen.
