It's been a while, but the day has finally arrived. I put down a deposit on an F3 800. Should be here in a week or two. I'm glad to finally be able to say I'm getting the bike I've wanted for a long time, and although winter will be here soon, I actually don't mind it. I figure once I have it in the garage I can take my time with the specific mods I want for it.

Hey guys, are your bikes new build 2016’s or a 2015’s?
It’ll be interesting to see if they are trouble free right out of the box. Lets hope so.

I asked the dealer specifically about this and they said I'd be getting a 2015. Although it was interesting to me that they had a 2016 Brutale on the floor. I also asked if the bike will have the new sprag already installed since the tech bulletin came out this summer. Dealer GM said it should be; we'll see.

So now begins procurement of the long laundry list of mods. Who do you all like for frame sliders?

Fingers crossed, it will be trouble free from the start. Also having the 2 year full
Warranty is a peace of mind.

Frame sliders - did some research & thought R&G should be a good option, not that they are many to choose from.

Thanks. I've got the R&G sliders on the list now, and I'll also be buying a radiator/oil cooler guard too.

Do you think buying sliders for the fuel tank would be worthwhile? For the frame plug set and bar ends, can you link to some recommendations?

Fuel tank sliders would be a personal decision. I did fit a clear MV Corse tank protector which prevented scratching the tank. No link to personal recommendations of R&G Products

So I finally brought her home today. All I can say is the ride home was intense. I kept having to tell myself to keep it steady and remember the engine is new and has to be broken in. This freaking triple speaks to me, I swear it, saying "Just redline me already!"

I also wanted to say that this is the first time in over 30 years I've gotten that "feeling" in my stomach from the speed and acceleration of some kind of machine. The last time that happened I was riding with my dad or brother after they had tricked out some old late '60s early '70s big iron V8 from Pontiac. I figured it was just because I'd gotten older...nope, suddenly that feeling was back like it had never left.

I cannot get over how this triple feels. It's the first time I've ever ridden one and I figured I'd take a gamble on it. I've ridden 4 cyl liters and 2 cyl Ducatis, each has their own distinctive feeling and personality. The thing about them though is they hum along just fine without hesitation and operating seamlessly. This odd number engine of MV's seems like it is purposely running rich or timing is incorrect or something. It took a while to even get used to it and tell myself it's running normal. I freaking love the sound and feel of it now - there is nothing else like it.



Still getting used to the throttle, it's definitely a noticeable difference compared to an actual linkage especially if like I'm sort of coasting to slow down and keep the throttle in the same position. The sensor or relay or whatever it is can't seem to make up its mind, trying to figure out what to do.

I already have a Shorai battery ready to go and Monday my new cables from Motolectric arrive so that's the first task I'm tackling. After that I'd probably either get the sliders installed or replace the windshield. The stock one does absolutely nothing. Thinking about this one:

You'll get used to the fly by wire throttle. The running in phase is there specifically for guys to get used to their bikes, nothing too much to do with the engine really, these things get a good run at the factory before being sent out.
Have a look here in the "Market Place" section, lot sof forum sponsors with lots of options on aftermarket parts mate - http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=35
