If all goes well, I should be picking up an F4-1000 Senna next Saturday. I visited FBF to check out the shop and ask some questions today. I got a hold of the F4-750 Senna Owners Manual and F4 1000S - Ago - Tamburini Workshop engine manual. I know these aren't for the bike I am going to get, but I wanted to see what info they had.

These manuals didn't have common torque values (for example for the frame nuts and bolts or the header nuts and that sort of thing). Maybe I didn't look closely enough, but maintenance procedures didn't seem to be explained in detail.

Questions:

1) Is there a publication which lists all torques for the bike. If not, where do you get torque values from (I've seen the blog values)

2) Is there a general service manual for the bike detailing all the maintenance items required and procedures for disassembly and re-assembly of the bikes subsystems?

In the past, each of my bikes had a single service manual with quite detailed information on about anything you would want to do.

I appreciate any help you can provide.

By the way, my previous posts used the name 2wheelDynamics, but I changed it to hellcat since that is what I use on other forums. Hellcat is a plane my dad flew in WWII and in his honor I use it for my on-line name.

The Workshop manual has a couple of pages that have a picture of the bike (Both right and left side). These pages have the important torque values you are looking for.

Unfortunately, the MV service manuals are not quite as user friendly or detailed as some of the newer Japanese service manuals, however, they are still quite good.

See:

For more info.

Manual List

Adam,

can you tell me what they call the manuals (is there more than one)? The manual I was given today was called "... Engine Workshop Manual". I only ask so that when I go back next week, I know what to ask for.

There are 3 manuals that I have. One is the Engine Workshop Manual that details the engine only. This manual comes in specific editions of which I have the F4-1000 edition. The 2nd is the platform specific shop manual (I have the F4-1000S manual), which covers everything else other than the engine.

Finally there is the parts manual with part #'s and exploded diagrams.

This Helps

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I think its the Shop manual which I haven't seen which has a lot of what I was looking for.

For me, part of the bike experience is getting into the mechanicals and feeling in sync with the machine. Also, I am obsessed with my bikes and don't like anyone working on them other than myself. I guess I could rationalize this by saying its for my own safety that I do my own work, but I don't think that's entirely honest. There are lots of good competent mechanics doing conscientious work for their customers.

Attachments

Attachments are limited to 4.77 MB which I believe is smaller than the manuals. But in general you can attach a PDF to a posting by the "Manage Attachments" button.

I would personally love to have a copy of the shop manual (it could be emailed as an attachment). Thanks.

Then all you have to decide is which exhaust should you take? Zard or Arrows?

I will let you guys know, but my decision is not related to the 1098S itself, but more to the way Ducati treats his customers :)
