I have a 2002 F4 Senna 750 #69/300 and recently did a major service at 4600 mi. I bought it with 4000 miles on the clock and had no solid idea how the PO cared for the bike.
I'm going to buy Mitchy, Noel, Donsy, gotojoe, MVArt and many others on here a pizza when I see them. This forum has been a great benefit for a new MV owner.
Here is what I did. Maybe this will help you.
It all started with wellnuts... mine were shot and ready to fall into the airbox and worse. Installed rivnuts.
Installed a new hub -( thanks Mitchy - a beautiful replacement part you have created) Pure intuition that mine was going, I bought Mitchy's when I did because it was the same number as my Senna - 69. No external/riding symptoms but when I took it off, the OEM hub was a real mess.
-the Senna has aluminum cooling lines so no need to replace them just flushed everything.
-the tank is stainless so immune to chemical mis-shapening
-replaced the brake and clutch fluid.
-checked and replaced old and suspect fuel lines,
-oil and air filter,
-checked and tightened intake clamps
-lubed the throttle cable
One thing sounded too difficult for my inexperience- was to swap out the plastic fittings in the fuel pump mount plate for metal. The old ones broke as I pulled the tank so I replaced them with new plastic ones. I'll keep an eye on them and may replace with metal if I do anything else over the winter.
Most things were in pretty good shape except the wellnuts, the hub, and the plugs.
It ran like a thing possessed when I bought it. I'm completely pleased with this bike. Ridiculously fast and too much fun!
Very nice indeed :mouthwate Unfortunately, the deal fell through. Turns out it was a fraudulent post. At least I didn't lose any money. It was through a company called egoldenclub consignors. I researched them and they seemed legit. But then, I found the bike that was listed in a post from two years back with the same mileage as the one that was offered. Even the pictures were the same :wtf: My search continues.
What should you expect? Expect the shipping company to damage it during its 1 month cross country drive from California to South Carolina. Expect to blow the diode and 3.5 amp fuse upon your first ride, causing you to break down 2 miles from your house. Expect the towing company to strap the bike down reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaal gooooooooooooood only to have it fall over on its side causing a bit more cosmetic damage. Expect to stay up all night reading and communicating with the amazing people from all over the planet on this forum as they help you with all of your unexpected issues.
I'm sure you will be much more fortunate than I was. She is an amazing motorcycle. Goto her...
I believe that depending on the year the side stand may always kill the engine in some cases, or may only kill the engine of it is in gear. (I think I’ve read this here a few weeks ago, but may ne mistaken).

My new to me pristine F4 1000S with only 3400 miles seems to start, idle and run very well. However, when pushing it a bit hard it will die on the shift from 1st to 2nd at anything above 8K RPM. It will not restart until I pull over and fiddle with the kill switch a few times. Otherwise I get...
could not be more excited since next week my F4 Tamburini 221 gets delivered. Always was my dream bike and now will join my F4 750 Senna which I have and enjoy now for 9 years.
