Question New F3

Well picked up my new 2018 F3 675 in Escondido yesterday. Rode it all the way home to Vegas. It's def not a touring bike, dear lordy my bony ass is sore
So almost the entire trip back, it was 2 bars away from max heat+, but I started traveling at about 5, so it wasn't too hot out. Today I rode for about 40 miles and it got hot super quick, to max heat. No engine warning, but F me it was way too hot. Then about 4 miles from home I get a Lambda sensor error. What the flapjacks. Def not the happiest right now. In reading I have to see if the radiator fan is kicking in. I took off the passenger pegs, that shouldn't make any difference with the Lambda sensor right?

No, taking off the pegs should make any difference. I would give your dealer a ring and see what they recommend. Usually my 675 runs at the mid point or 1 over the mid point, but it's probably way colder in the UK.

I would be asking the dealer to collect and deliver if you have only just picked it up. I'm sure MV comes with some sort of pick up and rescue whilst in warranty.

Sounds like the coolant wasnt serviced properly. Definitely have the dealer check it

The trip from Escondido to Las Vegas is all up hill. I've done the drive from Orange County and the girl I was with mentioned to watch the temp gauge and not to drive to aggressive. Its known to be hard on engine temps.

I would try to let the engine adapt to las vegas as well now that you are there. You are 2,000 ft above sea level so the ECU may not have adapted correctly and throwing a sensor code.

I would start bike and let it run till fan kicks in and then let it run some more fan cycles. Watch the temp gauge while doing this. Also, make sure your coolant level is at minimum mark before starting bike.

2 bars from max while on the freeway (I assume the 15) is not right. The hottest I've seen my f3 was 1 bar above mid while stopped in 90 degree weather.

That seems excessive, I would guess either your water pump is failing, or there are air pockets in the system, or the fan motor is bad/blown fuse.

Fan will come on as soon as you pass the temp mid point.

Whelp it's at the dealer, so hopefully they can get this all straightened out. I want to put some miles on the damn thing!

I drove it to the dealer (made sure it was ok to do so with what was wrong) and it stayed about 3 bars from max for the first bit (10miles) then jumped to max again quick. Something is def wonky. sigh.

Got it back, they put a new radiator cap on rated for the track
Took it on a 50 mile ride, got 1 bar above middle for the whole trip, went up 1 more bar on the street ride at the end. But in all fairness, it was 108 degrees outside lol.


Only had the damn thing a week and already needs it's 600 mile service.


Rode over to Bellisimoto yesterday. Man I am going to empty my bank account there on upgrades
Matte carbon all the things!
