Yippee ki-yay, muthafucka!

Hey team, I just bought myself a brand spanking new black arse F3 800... I am so excited, I have done close to a years worth of research on this little pocket rocket. F*ck the haters!

Money well spent.

Serious question... Do I need to replace the battery straight away?
Don't really feel like it because it's f*ucking brand new.

Welcome to the addiction and congrats on the F3 800.

If youre of a mind to say F the haters then why listen to them about changing out the battery straight away.
I nursed mine to almost the end of the warranty period. But I have to be honest, I bitched and complained about it and the bikes hard starting, (not to mention all the other problems I had with my purchase).
So the answer to your question is, no. You do not have to replace it straight away. But, you will have to at some point and Id bet its well before the warranty period is up. YMMV

Thanks for the quick reply team.
The only reason why I was asking is that I am purchasing some Rizoma and R&G aftermarket parts for it, I thought while I am at it I might as well change the battery but if you guys reckon I don't need it then I wont.

And about my username... :P
It shows how I have the love for the brand, I wanted to purchase a bike that hardly no one here in my hometown would ride because I purely want to be that rider who rides a motorcycle icon that is very appealing to the eye. That feeling you get when you know that every eye is on you because you are riding a very capable motorcycle which is also a one fine sexy arse b*itch.

The OEM batteries are crap, buy a good brand and you'll sleep at night

I don't want to replace it just yet... it's brand new!

I made sure my battery was replaced prior to it ever being started.
