Hi¡ i am new to this forum, bought some months ago an MV F4 312R year 2008, 3400 kms on the clock(4500 kms now). Good bike but i have had to deal with some problems:violin: which i was not especting to have... overheating is been bad, here in Madrid Spain the start of the summer is hot but this year is been more than that. Already changed the impeller but it is not enough. when stopped in traffic it gets really hot.
Also respond at low rpms(4000-5000) is awful, i get a clitching or something when accelerating....
I know that both problems can be fixed adding a microtec ecu and free flow exhaust sistems(no cat). I already bought from ebay a f4 1000R collector, next will go a decat pipe and new exhaust (rg3 or bodies?? what else keeping the organ look?) mixed with a microtec ecu(i will contact xbikes for this; do they have a map for my bike for this typical modification?)

Also i already added carbon all around with a mv corse rear set.

I will try to post pics in the next posts, but last time i try the system baned me¿?¿?¿? maybe the system thinks i am spam???:nutkick:

Anyway thanks to everyone for sharing so much information:yo: in this forum which helps a lot.

Welcome! You've got the impeller, now get the MV Race ecu + RG3's, that'll get rid of the midrange problem. As for the heat: it is what it is. As you go faster it gets less. That's the bike it is, and I sometimes wish I still had it. I remember clearly a summer's day ride, stuck in holiday traffic... That was hot! But not unbearable.

Enjoy the ride, the 312R is a classic!

I have been told that the microtec is the big ticket solving these problems, and it even lets you adjust fan starting temp. At one point i wanted to keep the bike modified but with oem only parts but at this point i am ready to surrender. I have read only good feedback about the microtec ecu.

Welcome. You did not mention if you changed the plastic fans to the Muzzy alloys.
I have not changed the fun blades jet but is on the to do list.....

Thanks all

From what I have read here it is important that it get changed right away. As soon as mine gets here, that together with the water pump impeller will be the first thing I will do.
Congrats on the new (to you) F4.

Start with the factory option I recommended; it's cheaper and it'll work.

Welcome mate ............ I know what your problem is it's that Ducati helmet sitting on top of the tank.

I have a 312R and mine shakes and shimmies if a Ducati bike comes near it - MV's are very sensitive beasts, you probably should put tape over the word Ducati or a sticker with MV on it and I think most of your troubles will be solved.

Seriously stay out of traffic jams, I love mine and yes it does get hot also look out for a leak in the radiator top left the horizontal tubes will get pulled apart by the weight of the radiators. I fixed mine with some epoxy metal stuff that I jammed into the tubes, no other issues!! I have completed 15 000kms and loved every minute!!!

Good luck with it!

Welcome to the forum,I have the Bodis system on my 1078,if you have the money go for it.I fitted a fan override switch amongst other mods to solve overheating in traffic and the switch works great,it is cheap to fit and solves overheating,Mitch.

Sounds right if you live in a village but when you live in the middle of a big city there´s no way you are going to avoid traffic jams....

About my helmet? you can see there what type of bike i was riding before... probably more than half of forum members here have owned or own a ducati, DNA of these bikes are pretty close.
Anyway the helmet will receive a Mv decal soon:yo:

This is a pic of what i have been forced to do to avoid to get my right foot cocked, the heat wrap on the cat helps a little to aliviate the intense temps coming from it.

As I said. Get rid of the cat. RG3's with cat replacement, MV Race ECU.
ok thanks, at first this was my first and only option but as i said before i have read some much good things about the microtech ecu and bodies exhaust that it is making me hesitate about it. I have already ordered(found on ebay) a f4 1000R header, next is bodies decat pipe but after that i will have to decide which route to follow.
thanks for your thoughts :drummer:

Hi mvidia & welcome aboard. :)

Gazman does indeed live in a village - an island village, God bless him :laughing:

Yes the sooner that Ducati sticker disappears the sooner EVERYTHING will improve ;)

Well it seems that i need a new helmet... that helmet is one from the Ducati catalog so is not a sticker, the ducati logo is painted.
Another thing for the to do(buy) list....:baddeal:

thanks for your welcome:guitarist:drummer:
