    Mv f4 1000r (2007)

    Happy to share my MV with you all.

    Found it on Auto Trader (UK) last February with only 7,000 miles. Dream to ride, but a totally different ball game to my 2005 RSVR Factory.

    I bought an '05 F4 1000s nearly seven years ago with... 339 miles. I got into a project and needed some cash, so I sold it a couple of years later with about 3,500 miles.

    Yes, entirely different experience than the two RSVRs I've owned.

    But what a piece of work. Lovely engineering. I could take all the bodywork off the bike, less the front fender, in just a few minutes. With or without the bodywork in place, it was just a beautiful thing to look at.

    The early F4s were known for poor fueling, and it's said the TPS was often set wrong at the factory. Mine didn't seem to be fueled well, so I looked up some specs, set the TPS to a certain OHMs resistance, put a catless mid pipe on it and an Arrow eprom, as well as an MVR air filter. Your '07 TPS has a different ECU and I don't believe any of the above would pertain.

    With only those changes, it made 161.78 hp at a local dyno day event. It ran gobs better than when I first got it.

    I found the stock suspension much stiffer than my RSVR, and though it was never as compliant as the Aprilia (Ohlins front and rear), it was much improved once I backed off the preload on both ends and lightened up the compression dampening.

    What an incredible howl from the thing at 12,500 revs, huh?

    My old girl, the earlier 1000S without the radial front brakes, I regret selling it but I wouldn't ride it if I still had it so I suppose if whoever owns it now is getting some use out of it then all well and good. I still have the memories and the photos. With the Ti (catless) exhaust, Power commander and a BMC filter, it was showing healthly figures on my mates dyno for the time.

    You've had/have some classy machines, John. I don't mind the grey/black, but for me the original red/silver takes some beating! Then again, look at all the MV specials in predominants black: SPR, Senna, Tamburini, CC, and the famed Lewis Hamilton!!

    The matt black was a personal preference Nigel. I was a bit of a hoarder back then and I had several sets of fairing panels for the F4 including the original Red/Silver. This photo might give you an idea of what I mean by hoarder. Lol.Click image for larger version.
