New Member Seeking Advice

Looking into a 2010+ F4 (only model that could make me buy older would the 1078 312rr) or an F3 800 2014+. Which of the 2 had less known “issues” and how easy are they ironed out in each model? Low speed fueling can be fixed with a power commander or just a new map from MV? F4 overheating can be sorted with a fan upgrade? Sprag clutch with the F3 still a problem or mostly sorted through recalls? Please let me know if I am missing anything here and any experiences anyone has with these bikes. Anything would help.

I wouldn't discount an earlier F41000RR, merely a step below the 312.

Whilst I don't have experience with the 'second generation' models I have no complaints at all about the reliability of mine, due in part, perhaps, to fewer electronic 'rider aids'.
