I've been eyeing the F3s for a while. My last MV was an '07 Senna which I miss quite a bit. Finally pulled the trigger on F3 800 RC #177 and took delivery of it this weekend. Dealer installed all the extra goodies for me and I added an R&G tail tidy instead of the included fender kit. Now I just need to switch it to reverse shift. What's the consensus on that? Rear sets? Thanks

Its so shiny <3
I only wished they kept the SC project exhaust inbetween subframe and wheel like the actual WSS version. That would've made more sense since its the RC version.

consensus says dump the exhaust, Gorgeous bike though, and honestly not sure the difference in the MV QS being it is push/pull for up/down shifting shouldn't need another QS when swapping over to race shift.

What's wrong with the exhaust?

He's not asking about the sensor. He's asking about the linkage setup.

I used the CNC racing reverse pattern linkage with the stock rear sets. Much cheaper solution than new rear sets (stock suited me fine).

Not sure how the voltage affects reverse pattern shifting. Im busing installing the blipper functionality on my 2012 with ECU studio and apparently the voltage is different on reverse pattern vs normal.

no the voltages are the same since the sensor direction stays the same.
the "reverse" setting in ECU Studio might be needed if you run a different sensor as I do. for the Cordona sensor you need to set it to reverse and then enter reversed voltages which makes it correct in the end :D

If the linkage is flipped on the transmission side then the voltage gets flipped. If the linkage is flipped on the rear set side then there is no change in voltage(no need to flip in ECU).

That is what I was trying to get at, depending on the rearsets you might need to do some modding.

Thanks guys. The more I look at the bike the more I appreciate its beauty.

I ended up ordering the CNC rear sets and the linkage. I didn't know you could use the linkage without the rearsets. I'd rather not swap out the rear sets if I do't have to so thanks for the info.

Considered the R&G tail tidy, but preferred the supplied alternative along with the LED light unit
Main reason I didn't use the supplied one was because of our license plate size here in the states. I'd either have a large piece of bracket showing below the plate or would have to cut it off, so I opted for the R&G.

It is a gorgeous bike. Every time I see one, I remember how much prettier it is than any other bike on the market, and certainly one of the prettiest ever.

I was in the MV dealer in Adelaide looking at the stocker F3 and then I spied the F3RC in the window display...

I think my exact words were "now, THAT's the [email protected]#$%in' business"

There is a good FAQ on this, under the support area. Once you have bought your kit, register on the help / support area and it's under MV Translogic. It explains how to run tests on your QS setup to determine the voltages, type and direction to use for your particular setup.
