Just recieved my F4.... WOW

Hey fellas'

I just recieved my f4 750 and shall i say WOW... such a beautiful bike and rides so smooth.... Handling is so nice too..... But a few things about the bike that I didn't like.... and it came as a surprise to me because I dont see to many Agusta's around here so just never experienced it... but the sound is very weak I shall say.... Coming from a Ducati, I was very surprised that it sounded like a jap bike.... I was expecting something more muscular.... and secondly the seat is just soo skimpy...no padding at all... but in any case I love her... She's amazingly beautiful and definately a head turner.... I brought her into a jap dealership to get an inspection sticker and she drew a little crowd.... put a smile on my face....

It's an inline 4 with a choked pipe. It's never going to sound like a twin. The engine layout is the same as a Japanese bike so it's going to sound Japanese. Although to my ear, different fueling systems make for different sounds.

Sort of like if you know what Weber carbs sound like, you know who has them and who doesn't.

The seat sucks. There isn't much hope for it.

Congrats on receiving your bike.....you could try an emoto gel seat. Any comments from anyone, are they more comfortable?

God, I loved the sound of Webber carbs. I had a double pumpper Holly 750 on my LS7 and lusted after webbers.

Does you midpipe have a Cat? If so, replace the midpipe. Replace the exhaust with the Corse exhaust and it will sound better than your Ducati.

My dad and I ran a VW sand rail for a while. We used a Zenith carb off of a Porshce, but the Webers that a lot of guys used were unmistakeable. And you can hear some of that same sound in Ferraris and american V8s. Neat isn't it?

Congrats!!

As some other guys mentioned - get used to the head-turning effect

There are lots of opportunities for you to tune the sound to where you want it. For my 910 Brutale, this it what i did: swapped the cat for a bypass mid pipe, and got a BMC open race filter. It now sounds really deep and hard. No one mistakes it for a Jap

For the f4 you could do a lot! For instance I teste rode a f4 1000 with sil moto silencers/cat bypass/filter, and man, it scared other wehicles of the road!

+1

Or if you don't have the cash, get your stock exhaust cored. When I ride a modern Duc...with termis...it's quite compared to my F4.

Congrats on the bike and welcome to the forum.
