F3 Dead

Hello Good people.

I was wondering if I could pick your brains a bit. So Today I attend an auction for equippment I need and in the middle of everything a 2012 F3 gest put on the floor. Looks like the previous owner lowsided and only one other guy bid, so to save it from the scrapyard I bought it (Second MV I saved )

Issue is when I got it home it's dead, like nothing happens when I turn the key. Even the alarm does nothing when I oress the remote. I am planning to strip it down to replace the damaged parts but wanted to see what I should check first for possible quick fix.

Thanks

Without sounding stupid, have you checked the battery? The standard batteries are notoriously bad and don't last long off a charger. If there is an alarm and that's run out of back up battery it's a good chance the battery is dead.

You can charge it through the Superseal connector under the pillion seat, if you have the right connector, or it's a tank off job.

Have you checked the fuses?

Thanks. I was going to check the battery when I started stripping, but lord, who decided to put it there? I need to drain the tank first.

I checked fuses and they fine and since I got it on Auction, no charger.

I was hoping for a oh check the button behind the dash kinda thing.....

I'l start stripping later tonight and let you know.

no need to drain the tank, just remove the fixing screws, then you can pull it off the bike (make sure to free the hoses first, they can stay attached to the tank!)


Also not sure how much shipping is but I've got the OEM charger for sale if you want it, not sure if it makes sense due to shipping from Germany though

Do MV's have a "tip-over switch" like other modern bikes that needs to be reset after a get-off?

I had a Honda that did something similar until the switch was reset.

@urdrvideo my Rivale certainly has, which I found out after lowsiding it. Cut the fuel pump and starter, and automagically came back on after bike had been righted up for a few minutes.

Apologies for the terrible layout but I'm not certain how to make it look better.

Thanks for the advice. Lifted the tank, tested the battery and its the fault. Currently charing it with a 12v charger just to test and see for other faults before stripping further. I'd take you up on the charger but don't know what the shipping would cost. maybe PM me what info you'd need.

I paid about +-$2500 and pics below. Only damage I see are on RH side. Need new mirror, rh side fairings seat, Handlebar with start button and foot peg.

Im not sure on this but theres no steering damper, did the 2012 not have one?
