New Owner

Recently purchased my 2016 F3 675 from Houston Superbikes. A huge thank you to Billy and Bobby who both offered a ton of help and were nothing but friendly.

I put about 290 miles on the bike in the first four days. First impressions that stick out to me are

Suspension: Feels very stiff. Any kind of uneven road surface or bump feel jarring. Hoping I can't tweak things a bit

Brakes: Stronger than any bike I've owned before. I'm having to learn to ease up in the front brake. A little goes a long way in this case

Overall I'm very happy so far. The bike looks and sounds amazing for a stock bike. Plans are for a QD exhaust and rear fender delete.

Any tips on removing the rear fender/license plate bracket? I see the 4 hex head bolts that hold it on but there is no way to access them with the plastic tray that covers them under the pillion seat. Maybe I'm missing something simple?

You can gain better access by removing both side panels, which don't take long to remove.

Congratulations on the bike purchase looks identical to mine. As you noted the rear suspension is fairly stiff on the spring rate, particularly if you are a 140 pound rider like myself but you need to remember this is pretty much a full on race capable ride right as it sits. Works real good when you are riding more aggressive and get her up on the rear wheel a little. Front brake is a one finger braking system for sure, many are not used to that.

Your decision to modify the bike for sure, but I would be critical of your plans to remove anything other than the rear footpegs :/ I really like the license bracket and signal mounts where they are, it is functional and painted black as they are they almost totally disappear from view. To change anything on the exhaust system is a really bad idea imho, unless you plan to turn it into a track only bike.

Brake-in is significant on these machines, you will notice the engine has a lot more internal mechanical sounds until you have completed ~1000+ miles. Have tons of fun with it an learn to ride it really, really well, it might save your life.

Thanks. I was almost able to get them all out just taking one side off but ended up having to take off both, was still quite a PITA. Every other bike I've owned this was a 5 minute job

Um, MV Agusta is certainly not like any other bike you have owned.
