Recall rumor - Stalling F3's anyone?

Just read on an Italian forum that MV will make a security recall for the F3's.
The security problem is supposed to be directly related to stalling issues, especially because they have occurred while the bike is rolling .

Anyway, so far it's just a rumor. But if it's confirmed, the recall in itself is good news because it shows MV is doing something about it.
One F3 owner said that the dealer told him not to ride the bike much until the recall is done. So if you have a stalling F3 take that into account.

BTW any problems out there with stalling F3?

Perhaps I understand the problem not with my bad english...

But my F3 has "the problem" that when you are rolling while shifting down the motor stops. That happens on 550km 4 times, but only 1 time and then not angain. And then again 1 time at the next ride and so on. Not nice..., but not that bad for me, you pull the clutch and the start button and it starts while you are rolling.

Is that what you mean?

@ 15.000U/min you have no friends

Zico, yes i think that's the problem some guys are complaining about.

You say that's not bad for you, but think twice... imagine approaching a turn at a spirited speed you shift down and the bike just goes off
or that you're mid corner and you have to shift down and the bike just shuts off
or that you're overtaking, on the other lane, see a car coming at you and you shift down to accelerate and overtake, but the bike just shuts down

If that is happening with your bike, beware! because in some circumstances that could put you in a very serious and dangerous situation.

That's why they say it's a safety (i wrote security, but meant safety) issue that MV has to address quickly.

I love MV and the F3, and i certainly don't want to drive people off from MVs or just say shit about it like some other people here do, but if what i've read is true about this stalling issue just out of the blue, then this is a safety issue and i think everyone with an F3 should be aware of it.

If this were the case with every bike, should it happen from the beginning or is this something that would develop? I have now ridden 400 miles and no stalling ... so just wondering if I have this to look forward to?

Just ski down there and jump off something, for cryin' out loud ...

I'm not sure about that, from what i've read so far.
I know some guys have been affected by this, some not.
But i'll investigate and post up here if something comes up.

Yes please keep us posted. This is a HUGE safety issue that must be resolved at once. Where is the info coming from?
