Hello fellow MV fans!

I've been asked to move this thread on the full race build of my new MV F3 from the F3 section where it could be seen by many F3 riders to this section where it will likely be seen by fewer forum members and fewer F3 riders - at least based on the number of views this section gets at any given time.

But to be a good sport and forum participant it will reside here now. I hope those of you who see this thread enjoy it. Thus far it has been very expensive and time consuming.

The realities we've faced are that few are racing this machine in 675 or 800 trim, even fewer are building the bike to be a true fully capable racer.

It is easy to see why. Here are some examples:

No one makes adjustable triples for the F3. So I did a design for IMA and they are making the first set of F3 specific adjustable triples - we should be testing them in the next few weeks.

No one makes linear rear suspension linkage for the F3. I've lent design assistance to Forsaken Motorsports and a linear rear linkage will be available soon.

No one makes the large Titanium hard parts specific to the F3. I did some development for TPO parts, soon F3 owners will be able to buy as much or more Ti hardware for the F3 as is available for the F4 models.

No one makes strong durable one piece rear sets for the F3. I have been working with Woodcraft to design, engineer and produce race quality rear sets that do not break off the frame tabs when a crash occurs. They will be available soon.

The list goes on, but you can see the trend that we've encountered. Most popular Supersport machines have an adequate supply of racing parts developed and available. The F3 has been largely ignored by the aftermarket. Lots of bling but not so much for racing and performance.

Please don't think this is a complaint session, rather it is an explanation of why it cost so much and has taken so long to build the F3 into a full blown proper - adjustable - tunable - crash resilient - reliable racing machine.

Thus far I'm enjoying it as it has presented many challenges and some cool opportunities to design racing parts for the F3. (I'm an engineer)

This F3 will also be completely professionally presented.

Stickers and logos by Drippin' Wet.
Engine MV Supersport kit & dyno tuning by Bruce Meyers from MV USA,
The rest is done by me and my world class wrench - DemonTech

When finished this F3 should be very light weight, agile and powerful. I hope it is better than I've imagined it could be. Here is a few images of the work in progress - many more to follow, thank you and enjoy

Do the math Clayton, how many people build or are actually interested in building a race bike as apposed to looking at images of a blinged up or standard bike pictured in any given location.

Thanks for taking the time to do this, real enthusiasts will follow this thread in detail and hopefully they will walk away much the wiser due to your efforts.

I look forward to following your progress and commend you for your efforts.

I do have to ask though, where are you racing that allows the mods to the F3 you are looking at?

Probably BEARS or Silhouette classes as he is racing an 800 too, not a 675

Looking good do far, keep it coming :f4:

Nice post !!! I agree 100% on the difficult to get special parts.

I'm building one myself and if you need to share special parts cost, just drop me a message or send me an email [email protected]

Post more pictures !

Why the big oil catch tank, is that regulation in your series or is the engine pumping out that much oil ?

And, are you going to continue using the standard dash or swap to AIM or something similiar with more options ?

Considering the Prodotti-Chrome i2M dashboard. I like the function and display that it offers for the F3.


The breather box size is basically the size of the OEM battery. Not scientific at all. Size was more about ease of fitment and maximum pressure relief

All engines create pumping so relief of that pressure equals reduced drag thus increased performance. How much is debatable but is goes in the right direction regardless of quantity.

This bike is for racing Formula 40 and heavyweight classes - largely dominated by GSXR750's and 1000cc twins. The goal is to build a MV triple capable of being a winning machine in those classes.

I'll post more photos to this thread soon.

Ah, okay. I just couldn't figure why you had that when even the World Supersport bike didn't. Maybe they hide it somewhere else.

We are forced by regulation to run the crank case breather back to airbox same as production bike which doesn't bother me as I don't have oil coming up there and only minimal vapour which I run through a filter.

Awesome work Ducati23 cant wait to see how it all pans out.
Do you still have both your RSV and RSV4 race bikes?

As a trackday enthusiast and occasional club racer, I am very interested in your project. I am nowhere near the level of rider that would need adjustable triples or different linkages, but I am sure there will things to learn from your thread.
Thanks for posting!

More MV parts fitment - big air tubes


I like these seats - they do a great job of making a seat that keeps the rider in the right place



Decided the MV should have a nice carbon fender




The RSVR is back to street trim. The MV is dedicated for track. RSV4 just finished going through it up for the season. Already looking for the next build after the MV. Maybe a new R1 or something different like a twin again, I do love riding twins.

I am coming from a 09 zx6r as well. Just need bodywork for the MV F3.
