Active F3 675/800 owners

I have been on some seriously slow forums with not many posters or people not even being excited about their bikes, but i think this forum is rating amongst the top. Is there just not much going on with owners of these bikes beside, my sprag clutch is dead, do i have a shit battery and well should i or shouldn't i have a tune done and which method to use?

I know there is a 2 or 3 guys who have done some serious modding on the bikes, otherwise it is which tail tidy works best?

Really would like to see some more people showing an interest, and sharing their knowledge. I am not a super huge resource either, as beside some suspension work, a bunch of bolt ons, have yet to really have to dig into the bike for problems (thankfully).

I hear you, workcommitment has stopped me from anything But riding the last year and a half.
I love the little 675 and the angry/busy little motor😎
Coming from oldschool Ducati suberbikes this thing was a revelation, itís so good i dont feel the need to do to much apart from start doing some serious riding again. Used to do a lot of trackdays, But stopped a couple of years ago and still miss it.
Will probably end up doing some suspension and ecu-tuning and eventually a trackday or two.
Best regards // Jimmi

You have to look at the size of the ownership pool. This is a niche brand and most folks don't tinker much.

It is certainly not a Suzuki forum.....

Can't say i ever owned a suzuki sportbike, but i do hear you on the low volume of this bike being out there.
Also being from the Ducati and Triumph side of things, you do get a few who tinker quite extensively on the bikes (Ducati23 level), but for as long as this bike has been around, figure we would have more folks chiming in on a regular.

It is still a very useful forum and the few that post often always go out their way to help. When I purchased my ECU Studio and was trying to activate the blipper functionality with EAS 2.0, I got a lot of assistance here on this forum which I would never have been able to do on my own, or on other platforms.

It used to be busy from 2012-2013. I dont have the figures, but I started to feel the forum started slowing down when they split it into subdivisions (Rivale, B3 etc) a few year back. If you look at the traffic, there are still a lot of people browsing, but nobody is posting. Less to talk about and less reasons for people to come here except when their sprag takes a dump.I'm super passionate about the brand, but struggling to get excited about anything new coming from MV lately.

Here is a list of mods on my 2012 F3 675 (one of the first):

1. Slipper clutch (OEM - mine didn't originally come with one)
2. Steering Damper (Ohlins)
3. Footpegs - Rizoma
4. Reverse Pattern Shift (CNC Racing)
5. EAS 2.0 with ECU studio - activated the blipper functionality as well as access to all the latest MV Fuel ROMS (maps)
5. 520 DID ERV3 Gold X Ring Chain Conversion (44 rear, 15 front - Big improvement!!)
6. Radiator and Oil Cooler Guard (R&G and Cox)
7. MV Agusta Xenon Headlight,
8. MV LED Tail Light
9. Rizoma Tail Tidy and LED Indicators
10. MV Agusta Corse LiPo battery
11. Rizoma engine guards
12. Brembo M4 Caliper conversion - (mine came with the 2 piece originally)
13. Wheel stripes (these are cool)
14. Rizoma Rear brake reservoir
15. Pirelli Supercorsa SP2 tyres (big improvement)
16. Upgraded the throttle grip to the new 2014 spec (Rivale)
17. Upgraded the clutch basket to the new spec (there was a recall on this)
19. MV Agusta Corse Seat. I had the pleather replaced with real leather.

Done all the work on this bike myself with the exception of the 1st service and any service bulletins. I'm not a fan of any aftermarket exhaust for the F3 currently.

Unfortunately as with any forum , It's the place to go to trouble shoot your issue before a trip to the stealership.
Also I'm guilty guilty as charged, I lurk here daily but never post !

Last weekend I finally went back in and did my valve adjustment. I got a Hotcams shim kit form motohut and popped them in. It took literally all weekend but it's pretty straight forward. I'd encourage any other F3 owners out there to take a stab at it themselves.

PTsalas I cant agree more about the exhausts !

Im also SA based (Pretoria).

Did you order a 7.48mm or 9.48mm shim kit?

Was it this one:

Hot Cams Valve Shim Kit

You're not joking when you say it's a entire weekend kinda thing. I checked mine two years ago, they were all in spec but some where borderline so I'm probably going to have to shim them when I check again this year.
