Not really technical, but could you tell me if there is a tail tidy and adjustable clutch lever available for the F3 yet or in the pipeline?

Regards

Hello Rik,

Yes there is a Tail Tidy available for the F3. It is currently in stock at MotoGB. Unfortunately, MotoGB can only supply spare parts to the Trade but I can inform the retail price is £115.00 + VAT.

There is a MV Corse Foldable Clutch Lever in Black available but currently on back order with MV Agusta with a Retail price of £215.00 + VAT.

I hope this helps.


Best Regards


Lee

Hi Lee
Could you let me know:
1. What is the size of the rear wheel axle nut? I have a 55mm socket, but not sure if it would fit, as I am still waiting for my bike to be delivered.
2. Are the parts diagrams available to public, so that folks who do their own maintenance can easily look up the parts numbers needed, before placing order with the dealer?
3. Not sure about UK, but in US the petrol comes pre-mixed with ethanol, which is known to expand plastic fuel tanks over a period of time. Do you think the F3 could have similar issues since it also has a plastic tank?
4. What is the diameter of the fork tubes (non Ohlins), at the very top around the preload adjuster?

Currently - '13 Ducati Multistrada (for sale), '09 Daytona (track only)
Previously - '13 F800GS, '13 MV F3, '10 S1000RR, '04 Royal Enfield 500, '97 Yamaha RX135, '90 Yamaha RD350...and many more.

When I looked at the bike at the Seattle International Show, it appeared that the steering stem WAS hollow on the bottom. I couldn't get a pair of calipers in there to measure, though. I also have a Pit Bull front stand for my Ninja and would like it to do double duty. Hopefully we can adapt it. I'm also going to try to adapt the Pit Bull rear stand. I measured the rear axle ID at 1.665 in (approx. 42 mm).

Hello,

Please see below the answers to your request:-

1) The rear axle nut is a Bi-Hex 55mm Socket. As long as your socket is a Bi-Hex then it should fit.
2) Unfortunately, at the moment the parts epc is only available to the trade. However, I will see if I can obtain a copy in Excel format.
3) I went to MV Agusta on the F3 Technical Training course earlier this year and met up with the Importer for the US market. He mentioned the issue with high ethanol experienced on the F4 Y10 and Brutale 920/990/1090 and the expanding of plastic. As far as I am aware, MV have realised this issue and had hopefully modified the tanks for that market. However, I will check and let you know the outcome.
4) I will check the Pre-load adjuster measurement tomorrow when I'm back in the workshop, do you require the measurement for aftermarket pre-load adjusters or for clip-ons?


Regards

Lee
