Introduction

Hello everyone! My name is Sergey and I'm happy owner of F4 312rr 1078. Before yesterday I've been reading forum whenever I found any issue with the bike so I want say thanks to all community because you really help. Yesterday i found the way for amount about 15$ to get rid of overheating. So i decided to register and share it because unfortunenetly i didn't find it here. And now i need 3 post to start new thread and tell about details i guess.

Welcome to the family Sergey !! Do tell us about your findings....

3 posts can be accomplished right in this thread. I suspect riding in Moscow is interesting..... What other bikes do you or have you owned??? And are there race tracks to ride in your area? or in Russia anywhere? I've never heard of any.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Riding in Moscow interesting only in a late night time and better outside the city because it's our capital of everything (country, finance, culture, IT etc.) and amount of cars is huge. But night riding in Moscow is very beautiful! So usually it's regular cofferacing. We have two FIA racetracks here (ADM Moscow and Moscow raceway) and couple in another parts of the country (Sochi, Kazan) but it's expensive and made for cars first of all.
I own F4 for 4 years and before i had Ducati 999, now i remember it like stiff but beautiful bike. I don't count russian bikes of my childhood (IZH Planeta-5, Ural, Jawa).

I still can't start new thread in maintenance so place it here and hope it's not a problem to replace it in the future.
So I get my F4 with heating issue. Previous owner said he changed water pump but problem stayed.
I read a lot of advices (3rd vent, another pump/hoses/radiator, engine ice) and done only two things (still don't know which works more):
1) Change my coolant to Motul Mocool (1:20 to water)
2) After flushing coolant system i took off hose of the upper rad and pour mocool there via funnel and selfmade hose. After i saw rad cant take no more I started pour mocool usual way.
You can find video (not mine) of point 2 on youtube it named "MV AGUSTA F4 2004 OVERHEATING PROBLEM SOLVE ! - COOLANT CHANGE"
Now it's 97-98C on idling and 103-105 in traffic VS 115-125 and nervous blinking all the way.

Your "Step 2" is getting the trapped air from the radiators.... This is the greatest cause for overheating.

It is difficult to get all the air out of the cooling system without taking special methods....Your method sounds pretty good.!! Thanks for sharing.

With 4 posts you should be able to start a thread anywhere on the forum.

Please share a photo of your bike in Moscow night riding. I imagine the city can be very pretty.
