Maintenance advise for 2001 Mv Agusta 750 f4

Hi Guys, This is my first thread in this forum. I'm very close to buying a 2001 MV Agusta 750 F4. Could you please tell me what are some of the things thats needs doing on a regular basis? ( I know that valve clearnace needs to be done every 10,000 kms ) so similar examples would be really helpful.I'm live in New Zealand ( In New Plymouth ) to be more precise so I'm doing this as it would come handy when I take it to alocal mechanic to get it serviced, it would also be useful as we dont have a local Mv Agusta specialist in this city so knowing some of these cost would be really beneficial.

I know there are few members from Nz on here so please help me out on this and the members from the rest of the world are also welcomed to share their thoughts? Thanking you all in advance.


P.S- This will be my 1st superbike upgrade as I've been riding Yamaha FZR 250 so far, i've just turned 25 and gained my full license so by law i can ride anything more than 250 cc now. I've done a lot of digging and the people around me who owns Japanese bikes tells me not to buy an Italian bikes but my hearts tells me to buy it cos i dont waana end up buying something that I have to regret for in the future and I know this bike can never be that. I've worked really hard on saving up for this bike after paying off my student loan etc. So any information i get from you all would will be really valuable to me. Thanks again

Gday mate

Welcome to the forum. And congrats on the bike youve made the right choice you followed your heart and didnt listen to your mates.

I think one of the biggest issues are the rear hub failing. Do a search on rear hub failure will give you more insight. The remedy keep the bearings nice and greased and change them over. Mitchy makes a replacement hub which is bulletproof. His a genius. You can pm him if you want to buy one

Other than that change the fuel filter abd make sure the fuel hoses in the tank are all ok. They can let go sometimes. Other than that the 750 doesnt really run hot and there pretty easy to work on. If anything faults electrical wise check your fuses and relays most common cause too.

Cheers

Sam

Great advice above. Would just like to add that the parts and workshop manuals are available for free download at Donsy's site (it's a sticky). You'll get an excellent idea of what's involved. The maintenance schedule is in the user manual. The F4 is an absolute dream to work on. Don't be intimated by the general rarity of the bike. Good luck in getting your dream bike. You won't regret it!

Thanks for the advise Sam and Arthur, i really appreciate it. I've just got a quote for an insurance f and it would be $833 nzd for a full comprehensive cover so I guess that pretty good deal. I'll let you guys know once I finalize the deal with the seller. Thanks again.

Hey guys, So i test rode this wonderful bike yesterday, negotiated with the seller and finally bought the bike. Yay!! I will be picking up the bike in next couple of weeks and will upload few more pics once collected.

The only drawback I found with the bike was the thumb lock as it requires a wider area to take u turn etc. but that's just a tiny thing so that doesn't bother me at all in comparison to its beauty and performance. I honestly had goose bumps when I first sat on it. I was also pleased because the ex owner had all the service history since new which was bit of relief as it was well maintained since day 1. The bike also has few minor scratches on the right fairing so I'm thinking of getting it sorted through a local bumper repair shop. Thank you

P.S- I'm always open to suggestions about maintaining this bike so please feel free to pm about any advice etc. Ta
