Its important to validate your modelyear by the 10th position of your vehicle identification number [VIN]


C=2012

E=2014
F=2015
G=2016
H=2017

There are some people who have a 2013 or 2015 model year bike and recieve a 2017 engine and within 1500 miles the same issue happened again.
Has nothing to do with year, just pure on engine and completly at random aswell.

1 person changed his ECU and made the 675cc go to 15.750 rpm which is 750 or 250 more rpm than normal. He has had 0 issues.
While the other person's engine dies at 6000 rpm.

Ofcourse there are more people out there with an F3 that arent on this forum than people who are.
So maybe its a rare thing that accures. And forum is mostly bad things instead of great stories passing by.

I got a F3 675 2016 with black engine 2500km. No issues so far. *knocks on wood*
PS: I always warm up engine completly before I crank the throttle and have some serious fun. Before that I keep low rpm and soft throttle.

Please vote BlackSaw, it's just a innocent poll to see if a specific range is affected

Ok so I checked my VIN number and my bike was build in either July or September 2016. I recieve my beauty in October 2016 which is a late 2016 model with a black engine. Everything before that is a silver engine.
And the 10th letter in my VIN number is an " H ". Which indicates it's a 2017 model.

No problems so far with my Valves. *knocks on wood again*

2014 F3 800 and no valve issues. I ride hard but not abusive. Have almost 17,000 miles on bike... got it with 3,000. Oil changed frequently and warmed up before ripping into it. I have my share of redline revs but just a moment... typically at the end of a wheelie.

I know everyone says it is valve guide related but more info is always helpful. I did a valve clearance check and all were in spec... on the narrow end of the range but in spec. Timing chain in spec.

I noticed that my temp gauge is happy when I use more throttle and ride fast. If I ride slow it heats up. Well, it is a sport bike so I use it that way and its happy that way.

Wouldn't engine number be better to collect than VIN?
2014 675 with blown valve.
2017 owners...there is a service bulletin for your head.
