My TVL got the bubonic plague

Strange things happen here:

my sexy lady got bumps in the garage.

I wasn't using the bike for two weeks now ( heavy snow and very cold) but yesterday I took her for a ride out.

And then I saw the dents... ???

what the f..k is this now??

Maybe it was to cold for her...

I send some pic's and a video to my Dealer ...
he will send this to MV and see what happens next...

look at the pic's:

Just a guess could be a reaction to alcohol or other additive in the fuel.

If you have ethanol in your fuel, it is the reason.

Ok here in Germany we have the "Super" with max 5% ethanol in it ( E5 it calls) and Super with 10% ethanol in it (E10)
I always used the E5, you need a special motor to used E10!!
So that can not be the reason.. I guess !!

Ethanol, no matter how much, can be the cause.

seems like ethanol reaction the most likely cause. Plastic tanks are treated apparently to try to prevent but number of guys have had similar issues. I have had 2 tanks bubble up on my F3 ORO. 3rd tank being made by MV as we speak. Unlike previous 2, which were original 2012 production, this one is being internally treated.

Only other thing need to check is the tank breather. Make sure pressure not building in tank.

Good luck. Hopefully MV will sort you out with a new tank.

ouch...lets hope MV will solve this problem for you.

I haven't droven my bike in weeks, and wanted to fire up the bike once to run the oil through the system and noticed that my tank was singing.
So I opened the gastank and pressure escaped. Maybe its smart to release pressure every now and then? *could it be the ethanol?

What you are hearing is the two-way valve releasing vapor into the charcoal canister.

Is the tank soft on the areas that expanded?


I'd speculate that ethanol is the culprit that molested your sexy lady.


Hope MV has a satisfactory remedy ..
