New MV Owner

Hello all,

I am very excited to be here, picked up a lightly used 2014 F3 800 a few weeks ago and have been out on it each time the snow melts enough to get out. I absolutely LOVE this thing, even with it's current shortcomings, I am so glad that I chose this machine over my other options as it evokes an unparalleled emotion.

I have read about the potential valve issues on this model and have been investigating possible solutions, I am curious to know how likely the valves on the early models are to let go? Also what are some mechanical modifications that should be done to improve this machine?

Thanks for the compliments, the garage is space that I rent from my father, and the Ford belongs to a friend, but the F3 is mine

Glad to hear that, I read all 25 pages of the cylinder head destruction thread and felt sick! I sourced an intake and exhaust valve and called a company to inquire about having new valves made, cost came to ~2100.00 usd for 12.

Welcome to the family !!!

By the way...the 800 engine is not prone to valve failures. That was mostly the early 675 engines. Don't waste your money. Just take care of it and ride it intelligently (in other words...don't sit there bouncing off the rev limiter in the parking lot like some fools do).

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