1st ride on new F4RR

Had my 1st day out on the new bike today. It attracted lots of interest from other riders. You don't see many MV's out & about here. Very nice bike to ride. Smoothest bike in the gearbox & handling that I've ever ridden. A screw on a panel under the fuel tank fell out though after about 200km. I little disappointing. I will need to go over a few bolt ons to make sure they are secure. Overall a worthwhile purchase.

Which screw under the fuel tank? Do you mean fuel tank or airbox? Search "wellnuts", as this could lead to a disaster. If the wellnut stayed there, no big deal, if it was the wellnut in front of the filter, no big deal, if it was the wellnut behind the filter the wellnut can get sucked into the throttle bodies.....Big deal.

Or I could be off base, and your talking about some other panel somewhere else.

Glad you like your MV, they are wonderful rides.

Sounds precisely like a first MV ride experience.

re the little niggly things - bearable considering it is a bike that performs so well in the well critical areas - engine, handling and presentation.

be interested if your rear brakes become a problem with heat (mine are MUCH better with DOT 5.1) and I am pretty sure the heat shield problem I have at the moment may have been related to the break problem.

No big deal. It's only to hold the triangular panel to the tank. It screws into a rubber rawlnut & is all external. Getting a replacement is becoming harder than expected. Could be a week or more to get another 1.

Every new bike I have owned being Ducati,Triumph or MV,I always check just about every nut and bolt on the bike before riding,and every bike I have found something loose (human error).

Checking over for loose fasteners is probably a good idea. Wish I'd done that but in my experience that's what PD's are for but then times are changing. Thanks for the websites Donsy I'm sure they will come in handy. By the way Mitch I like your seat cover.
