Absolutely the 1078 B4/F4 are the finest motors you can find

Your post will get more response in the maintenance section.
All depends how much money you want to spend.
It is not only the fuelling that causes this issue.It is ignition timing as well which a power commander cannot help with.
I have a race ECU which works well.
You can have your OEM ECU re-flashed/new chip installed.A member merc07 on this forum can help you.
Or go all the way and purchase a Microtec ECU.
Search on the forum for more info.

MV Arthur You can simply lower the ride height of the F4 with a shorter connecting link made by Sato (at the same time lowering the front forks an equal amount).

EVO Chris I have had all different makes and models and the F4 has has always stirred the soul better than any other. Take care of an F4 with regular servicing and it will last for many miles and many years, mine has. Great bikes and the 'only' choice.
If you have particular needs for the bike such as use in hot weather etc it can all be sorted.

F4's are not comfortable with city speed limits and traffic,they like travelling at speed with wind blowing through their ears.
F4's are also not built for comfort,but the bruises do fade away and you get used to it.
I am biased and own a F4,but I stay away from city areas as much as possible.
All my opinion.
F3 is not much better in the city. It also gets hot in slow riding.

Sprag issue has for the most part been resolved. Battery issue is something that you can replace yourself with a lithium unit so non issue and rear brake will never work so forget it.

If you want a bike primarily for commuting, I suggest look elsewhere (my opinion). If you want a bike for weekends that can also do a little commuting then you can compromise and consider an MV.
