New F3 to the site

Hi all, I can't find an introduction field on the site so posting here.

I collect the bike in a few weeks time and can't wait. I bought Ed Coskers own bike (F3 800) from him as I only ride on track and it had a few extra's fitted that I wouldn't have to buy on top.

This will be the first MV I've owned. I'm trading in my ZX10r for it but before that I had a Triumph D675 ex T3 bike and loved it. So the thought of having a tripple engine again but with more power this time is really exciting.

Welcome. Theyre a great bike. Got mine in June and racked up 4000miles since then - just playing out. Great bikes.

Take a chance while you still got the choice.
F3-800 / RVF400. Lancashire, England.

Welcome and I'm sure you'll love the bike. Very nimble, narrow, capable. Feels great when you open her up on a nice road or your favorite turn at the track.

While you wait I'd strongly suggest you familiarize yourself with some of the more common issues people have had with their F3 including the battery, starter/sprag, coolant and general heat issues, rear brake reservoir. I may be forgetting a couple others but this is all part of the fun in owning the best exotic on two wheels.

Haha already looking into the battery and cables.
The rear reservoir and coolant are a new one on me though.

Bikes done 2.5k miles and has has 2 sprags and the throttle done.
