Rivolto, September 11th - 12th, 2010
Admiration, wonder and respect: these are the common feelings always aroused by the aircrafts and the
pilots of the Italian Acrobatic Team since the date of its birth.
The “Frecce Tricolori” represent a united team of pilots of the Military Air Force, which has been able to
proudly support the Italian national colors in the world throughout its whole history by linking them to
the highest values of quality, performance, style and professionalism.
These results can only come from a methodical and constant engagement, aimed to the unceasing
research of perfection in any action. MV Agusta shares, in its history, in its brand and in its people, the
same inspiring principles of the legendary “Frecce Tricolori”, as well as the awareness of being an icon
of the Italian style in the world.
In order to affirm the common engagement in pursuing excellence in any of its aspects, while celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Acrobatic Team, MV Agusta has clothed the most powerful and fascinating of its creations with the colors of the Italian flag and sky, thus realizing an exclusive series of F4
bikes with the “Frecce Tricolori” livery.
The above motorcycles, prepared with special components and exactly numbered as the aircrafts of the
acrobatic team, recall their distinctive features and bear a silver plate reporting the number and the code
of the corresponding aeroplane.
The indications contained in the manual will help you make the most of your motorcycle in terms of both performance and operating life. The manual provides useful information on how to take care of your vehicle, and
also describes some routine maintenance operations. Fundamental units such as the engine and the transmission are covered in the Workshop Manuals. Operations involving these parts require specific equipment and
are reserved for skilled personnel. Your dealer possesses the skills, the equipment and the spare parts that are
needed to keep your motorcycle in optimum working order. This manual is to be considered as an integral part
of the vehicle, and must be transferred to any new owner together with the vehicle.
I wish to finally thank you for the trust you kindly gave us and send you my personal congratulations for
your new MV Agusta F4 1000 “Frecce Tricolori”.
MV Agusta
Claudio Castiglioni
President

2.1.2. NOISE EMISSION WARRANTY
2.1.1. HOW TO REPORT A SAFETY-RELATED
DEFECT
If you believe that your vehicle has a defect
which could cause a crash or could cause injury
or death, you should immediately inform the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) in addition to notifying MV Agusta
S.p.A. If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it
may open an investigation, and if it finds that a
safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may
order a recall and remedy campaign. However,
NHTSA cannot become involved in individual
problems between you, your dealer, or MV
Agusta S.p.A. To contact NHTSA, you may either
call the Auto Safety Hotline toll-free at 1-888-3274236 or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of
Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE
West Building, Washington, D.C. 20590. You can
also obtain other information about motor vehicle
safety from the Hotline.
MV Agusta S.p.A. warrants that, at the time of
sale, the exhaust system conformed to all applicable U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)
noise control regulations. The warranty applies to
the first retail purchaser of the exhaust system
and to all subsequent buyers. Any warranty
claims must be addressed to:
MV Agusta U.S.A. LLC, 2300 Maryland Road,
Willow Grove, PA 19090-4193.
2.1.3. NOTE ON TAMPERING
Tampering with the noise control system is prohibited. In particular, federal law prohibits the following acts:
1. The removal or rendering inoperative, other
than for purposes of maintenance, repair, or
replacement, of any device or element of
design incorporated into any new vehicle for the
purpose of noise control prior to its sale or delivery to the ultimate purchaser or while it is in use.

SAFETY INFORMATION
2. The use of the vehicle after such device or element of design has been removed or rendered
inoperative.
Acts presumed to constitute tampering include:
1. The removal or piercing of the exhaust
silencer, the diaphragm, the manifolds, the catalytic converter or any other components
involved in the transmission of exhaust gases.
2. The removal or piercing of any part of the
intake system.
3. Poor maintenance.
4. The replacement of any movable parts of the
vehicle or of any intake or exhaust components with parts or components other than
those prescribed by the manufacturer.
2
NOTE
Never ride your motorcycle with a defective muffler. This will effect not only the motorcycle’s
sound level, but its performance as well. Riding
with a defective muffler can also subject you to
arrest and imposition of fines.
The rules of the road vary from country to country.
Be sure that you understand local regulations
before riding your motorcycle.

2.1.4. INFORMATION ON THE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
The combustion process produces carbon
monoxide and hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbon control is particularly important in that, under certain
conditions and when exposed to direct sunlight,
hydrocarbons undergo reactions which lead to the
formation of photochemical smog. Carbon
monoxide does not react in the same way, but it is
highly toxic. MV Agusta uses a sequential multipoint electronic injection system and other methods designed to cut carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions.
Exhaust emission control system
The exhaust emission control system is made up
of the sequential multipoint injection (SMPI) system, which requires no adjustment. The exhaust
emission control system is distinct from the
crankcase emission control system.
Crankcase emission control system
The engine is equipped with a closed-crankcase
2
system designed to prevent the release of
crankcase emissions into the atmosphere. Blowby gases return to the combustion chamber via
the air filter and the injection system.
Evaporative emission control system
California motorcycles are equipped with an
evaporative emission control system, which consists of a charcoal canister and associated plumbing. This system prevents the escape of fuel
vapors from the fuel tank.
Problems relating to the vehicle’s emissions
Should the vehicle show any of the following
symptoms, contact your MV Agusta dealer to
have it checked and if necessary repaired:
1) Engine is difficult to start or stalls after starting.
2) Idle speed is erratic.
3) Misfiring or backfiring during acceleration.
4) Afterburning.
5) Poor performance (driveability) and excessive
consumption.

SAFETY INFORMATION
2.1.5. SAFE RIDING
a. The rider’s judgment, training, and experience
form the basis of safe riding. You should practice
riding in areas without traffic, such as an open
parking lot, until you have become familiar with
the motorcycle, its controls and its braking/handling characteristics. In addition to obtaining the
necessary driver’s license, MV Agusta strongly
recommends that you take a certified course
approved by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation
(MSF), which can provide useful information both
to new and experienced riders. For information
about MSF training courses, call the toll-free number: (800) 446-9227. Relying on the advice of
people other than a qualified riding instructor,
even if they are excellent motorcyclists, can be
misleading and dangerous.
b. There are certain risks inherent in riding a
motorcycle because it affords less personal safety
protection than an automobile in the event of an
accident. Unlike automobiles, motorcycles are not
2
equipped with airbags or other protective devices.
Always wear a DOT approved helmet with
eye/face protection and protective clothing, including a motorcycle riding jacket, pants, gloves and
boots, even on short rides. Also, you should wear
clothing that contains bright colors and reflecting
materials to maximize your visibility and presence
to others. Avoid wearing dark colored clothing
because that makes it more difficult for others to
see you on the roadway, even in the daytime.
c. While you are wearing a helmet, you will experience reduced peripheral vision, hearing and
head movement. Please ride accordingly.
d. No helmet or other protective clothing can provide complete protection against the risk of
serious personal injury or even death in the event
of an accident. Do not be deceived by the false
sense of security that you might perceive by wearing even the highest quality protective clothing.
Always use protective equipment as directed in
their owner’s manuals, and ride safely.

e. This motorcycle is for riding only on the street
and other paved surfaces. Never ride this
motorcycle off road, on any trails or any unpaved
surfaces.
f. Never attach any key ring or other object to
your ignition key, as they could interfere with your
ability to steer your motorcycle.
g. Never attach a sidecar, trailer or any other
accessory to your motorcycle, as it could make
the motorcycle unstable, resulting in an accident.
h. Never modify any component part of the
motorcycle unless these modifications were
approved in writing by MV Agusta. Non-approved
modifications may jeopardize the structural integrity, functionality and effectiveness of the
motorcycle. Any modifications must be performed
by an authorized MV Agusta dealer with only MV
Agusta approved accessories.
2
i. If your motorcycle is ever involved in an accident, even if it only falls over, check all levers
(hand and foot), wires, hoses, brake calipers, rims
and all other components for any damage. If you
are unsure about the extent of the damage, take
your motorcycle to a MV Agusta dealer. Do not
ride until any damage is repaired by an authorized
MV Agusta dealer.
l. Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning - Never
let the engine run in closed places where the
exhaust fumes may accumulate. Exhaust fumes

2.1.6. MAINTAINING YOUR MOTORCYCLE
a. Proper maintenance is crucial to safe riding.
Follow all maintenance instructions in this manual
as set forth in Section 6.
b. Maintenance, repair and service of your
motorcycle require specialized knowledge, tools
and experience. General mechanical aptitude
may not be sufficient to properly maintain, repair
or service your motorcycle. These tasks should
be performed by an authorized MV Agusta dealer.
If you have any doubt whatsoever regarding your
motorcycle, please contact an authorized MV
Agusta dealer.
c. If the performance of your motorcycle changes
in any way, if you see any oil, or if it begins to
make any noise, immediately stop riding your
motorcycle. Have your motorcycle professionally
inspected and repaired by an MV Agusta dealer,
as necessary.

2.1.7. BEFORE YOU RIDE
2
a. Your motorcycle, like all products, may wear
over time. Before each ride, make sure you
perform all pre-ride checks as stated in Section
4.8 and that all components are properly adjusted
as set forth in Chapter 5.
WARNING
Do not ride your motorcycle if it does
not pass this pre-ride test. Correct any
condition before you ride.
d. Be sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure and that there is no damage whatsoever in the tread or sidewall of the tire.
e. Motorcycle riding demands your complete
attention. Do not ride if you are ill, in poor physical condition, under the influence of alcohol or
drugs (prescription or recreational drugs) or are
experiencing emotional issues that could affect
your concentration level.
b. Check your motorcycle for any leaks of oil or
other fluids, which is indicative of a problem with
your motorcycle.
c. Test your brakes at the beginning of the ride to
make sure they are operating properly.

2.1.8. WHILE YOU RIDE
a. Your motorcycle is a very high performance
vehicle. Do not confuse the enhanced capabilities of your motorcycle with your own capabilities. Increasing your skill will take time and practice. Proceed carefully until you are sure you are
competent to handle the capabilities of your
motorcycle.
b. Always ride with care. Adopt a defensive driving attitude to avoid possible accidents.
c. Change gears as necessary to ensure that the
proper gear ratio is chosen in all riding conditions,
allowing the engine to run at optimum speed at all
times. Avoid high gear ratios when traveling at
reduced speed (excessively low rpm) as well as
low gear ratios when traveling at high speed
(excessively high rpm). Improper gear selection
will affect your ability to control your motorcycle.
d. When the motorcycle is being ridden at high
speed, gearing down several times in rapid succession can cause the engine to overspeed. As a
result, the rear wheel may lock, leading to loss of
control of the motorcycle and an accident. In addition, you could damage the engine and transmission. Never gear downmore than one gear at a
time without allowing the engine RPM to stabilize.
e. When riding downhill, reduce the speed of
your motorcycle by closing the throttle and using
a low gear ratio to take advantage of engine
braking. Use the front and rear brakes as little as
possible to maintain your speed, in order to prevent brake overheating and diminished braking
performance.
f. Braking in a turn could result in loss of
motorcycle control. Always operate the brakes
before starting a turn.

g. Sudden gusts of wind can cause you to lose
control of your motorcycle. Reduce your speed
and exercise extreme caution when you are overtaken by a vehicle of large dimensions, when you
come out of a tunnel or when you are driving in a
hilly area.
h. Remember that, as your motorcycle picks up
speed, stopping distances increase and the
motorcycle becomes more difficult to control.
2
you do ride in these conditions, travel at low
speed and avoid abrupt maneuvers.
l. Pay attention to roadway conditions. Certain
roadways contain debris, potholes and crevices
that may cause you to lose your balance or control over the motorcycle. Familiarize yourself with
roadway conditions and remain alert so that you
can act to avoid any hazard.
j. Always keep your feet on the foot pegs and
your hands on the handlebars while riding.
m. Never attempt any acrobatic stunts or
maneuvers with your motorcycle! You can lose
control and have an accident. You will also cause
your motorcycle to prematurely wear or fail, resulting in an accident. You will also void your warranty.
k. Avoid riding during slippery road conditions,
such as caused by rain, snow, sleet, ice, loose
gravel, etc. Also, avoid riding on slippery surfaces,
such as metal plates, manholes or grates. You
could experience reduced tire traction, making it
more difficult to control or stop your motorcycle. If
n. Only for the F4 1000 model, you may carry
one passenger on the motorcycle. Never carry
more than one passenger. When riding with a
passenger, keep in mind that the passenger’s
weight and movements may affect your balance
and control over the motorcycle.
i. When riding during the day, always ride with
your low beam headlight illuminated.

SAFETY INFORMATION
o. When transporting items on the motorcycle,
ensure that their weight is distributed evenly and
that they are properly secured. Never attach
anything to your handlebars, front forks or the
frame of your motorcycle, as your steering could
be impared. Loose and improperly positioned
items may interfere with certain motorcycle components and your driving ability, resulting in an
accident.
p. Never exceed the stated speed limit. By avoiding speeding, you reduce the risk of accidents.
Use speed appropriate to the traffic pattern.
Riding at high speed or in competition is to voluntary assume a very high risk of an accident.
2
q. The user of this motorcycle expressly recognizes and agrees that there are risks inherent in
motorcycle riding, including but not limited to the
risk that a component of your motorcycle system
can fail, resulting in an accident, personal injury or
death. By his/her purchase and use of this
motorcycle, the user expressly, voluntarily and
knowingly accepts and assumes these risks,
including but not limited to the risk of passive or
active negligence of MV Agusta or hidden, latent
or obvious defects in the product, and agrees to
hold MV Agusta, its distributors and retailers
harmless to the fullest extent permitted by law
against any resulting damages.

2.1.9. AFTER YOU RIDE
2
a. The engine, exhaust pipes and other components will be hot after riding and present a risk of
burn injury to adults or children. Store the
motorcycle in a place that prevents others from
coming in contact with these hot component
parts.
b. Never cover the motorcycle with anything
immediately after riding. Wait until the motorcycle
has thoroughly cooled down. Covering the
motorcycle before the engine and its component
parts thoroughly cooled down presents a risk of
fire and property damage.
c. Park your motorcycle in a location where it is
unlikely to be bumped into by bystanders. Even
slight bumps can cause the motorcycle to fall
over, resulting in property damage, personal
injury, or death, especially to children.
d. Never park your motorcycle on soft or uneven
surfaces because that could cause the motorcycle to topple over, resulting in injury or death to a
bystander. Park your motorcycle on hard, flat and
level surfaces and ensure that the kickstand is
fully engaged and the motorcycle is stable. Avoid
parking on hills or upward sloping terrain, but, if
necessary, park the motorcycle facing uphill.
e. Never wash or clean the motorcycle immediately after riding because hot component parts present a risk of fire when they come in contact with
flammable substances. Wait until the motorcycle
has thoroughly cooled down. Never use washing
or cleaning systems involving steam or high pressure because that could cause damage to the
motorcycle, including the radiator fins.

SAFETY INFORMATION
2.1.10. INSTALLING ACCESSORIES
MV Agusta provides a range of accessories specially designed for your vehicle. Always select
your accessories with careful consultation with
your MV Agusta dealer to insure that the most
appropriate accessories are selected. It is essential that these accessories are installed only by an
MV Agusta dealer.
WARNING: Use only MV Agusta original
accessories. The use of non-genuine
accessories can make the vehicle
unsafe by reducing its handling, stability
or the effectiveness of the braking system. For this reason, the installation of
any non-genuine accessory makes the
warranty null and void and relieves MV
Agusta of all its warranty obligations.
Every time you install accessories that affect
the weight and/or the aerodynamic characteristics
of your motorcycle, they must be assembled on its
2
lower side and near to its center, as much as it is
possible. Any connecting brackets and anchor
bolts must be carefully checked after the assembly, to ensure a stable framework and an unmovable support for the accessory.
WARNING
Improperly installed accessories can
result in an accident that could lead to
serious personal injury or even death.
Verify that the installed accessories do not
cause a reduction of the minimum ground clearance and of the inclination of your motorcycle.
Moreover, verify that the installed accessories do
not cause any interference with the handling of
the steering system, with the travel of the suspensions and/or with the movement of any other component involved in driving.
Any accessory positioned on the handlebar or
on the front fork can reduce the handling and
adversely affect the stability of the vehicle.
Therefore, the choice of the accessories should

SAFETY INFORMATION
2
be accurate and restricted to components of light
weight and small dimensions only.
Blowing winds, including that cause by passing large vehicles, can affect the stability of your
motorcycle whether or not it is equipped with
accessories. Improperly selected or installed
accessories increase the risk of instability. It is
therefore necessary to pay great attention in
choosing and installing any accessories.
Some accessories may force the rider to drive
in an unnatural position. This may obviously
restrict your freedom of movement and cause loss
of control of the motorcycle that could result in an
accident with subsequent serious injury or even
death. If any accessory results in an unnatural
riding position, immediately see your MV Agusta
dealer before riding your motorcycle.
Adding electric accessories can cause an
overload of the electrical system of your motorcycle, resulting in damage to the wires and electrical
system, short circuit, electric shock, a fire, serious
injury or even death.
2.1.11. VEHICLE LOAD
Your motorcycle is designed for use by the rider
and only one passenger. To use the vehicle in
complete safety, it is essential that the following
maximum weight conditions are never exceeded:
F4 1000 “Frecce Tricolori”
378 kg (833 lbs)
These values are also shown on the plate fixed to
the left side of the steering head tube. They come
out from the sum of the following weights:

SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING
NEVER OVERLOAD YOUR MOTORCYCLE! Driving an overloaded motorcycle
can cause damage to the tires, brakes or
other structural components of your
motorcycle and result in serious injury
or even death. Verify that the total weight (including the weight of the
motorcycle, the driver, the passenger,
the load and all the accessories) does
not exceed the maximum weight value
specified for your vehicle.
WARNING
The load on your motorcycle can strongly affect handling, braking, performance and safety characteristics of your
motorcycle. You will need additional
time to brake, turn, and will need to ride
at a slower rate of speed. Please ride
accordingly.
- 29 -
2
WARNING
Never carry any incorrectly secured
object on your motorcycle, which might
shift or fall away during riding that could
affect the motorcycle stability. Steadily
fasten the heaviest objects near the center of the motorcycle, and equally divide
the load on both sides of the motorcycle.
WARNING
• Never insert any object or accessory
in the open spaces on the frame, in
order to avoid interferring with the
movable parts of the motorcycle.
• Before riding with a load, always check
the wear and the pressure of the tires.
• Adjust the suspensions according to
the load.
• Even if the motorcycle is correctly
loaded, drive with caution and never

Never remove any original device, or modify the
motorcycle in any way that could change its
shape or operation.
WARNING
Any modifications made to the motorcycle (e.g. alteration and/or removal of
components) as these modifications
can make the vehicle unsafe and/or illegal. MV Agusta is not responsible for
any damage to people and objects as a
result of modifications made to the original condition of your motorcycle.
Modifying the motorcycle immediately
voids the warranty and relieves MV
Agusta of all its warranty obligations.
WARNING
Riding the motorcycle in competitions
requires considerable skill and experience as well as an appropriate setup of
the motorcycle.
CAUTION
The high temperatures caused by the
use of the motorcycle on race circuits
could compromise the efficiency of the
catalytic converter and of the exhaust
system; therefore, we suggest assembling a special exhaust system when
using the vehicle on race circuits.
MV Agusta has designed a number of special
components for use in competitions and/or sporting events. The use of such components is strictly limited to areas closed to traffic. Failure to
observe this warning violates the law.

WARNING: Your motorcycle possesses very high power and performance characteristics.
Therefore, its use requires a higher level of motorcycle riding skill and knowledge of the
motorcycle. When you begin riding this motorcycle, you must ride especially carefully until
you are thoroughly familiar with the motorcycle’s power and performance characteristics.
Failure to do so could result in an accident, personal injury or death.
CAUTION: The high temperatures caused by the use of the vehicle on race circuits could
compromise the efficiency of the catalytic converter and of the exhaust system; therefore,
we suggest installing a special exhaust system when using the vehicle on race circuits.
Respect and defend natural environment
Everything we do affects the whole planet as well as its resources.
MV Agusta, in order to protect the interests of the community, alerts the Customers and the Technical Assistance operators

Break-in
CAUTION
Failure to observe the indications provided
below can reduce performance and shorten
the life of the motorcycle.
4
Break-in is generally considered to apply only to the
engine. In fact, it should be regarded as an essential
phase for other important parts such as the tires, the
brakes and the drive chain. During the very first miles,
adopt a relaxed riding style.
0 to 500 km (0 to 300 mi) (A)
Frequently change the engine speed. If possible, prefer
hilly routes with gentle slopes and many bends. Avoid
long straight stretches.
- 56 -
MAX
5500-6000 rpm
WARNING: New tires are sometimes coated with a mold release
agent which makes them slippery.
Abrupt acceleration, sharp turning
or hard braking could cause you
to lose control of your motorcycle.
Ride at reduced speeds and exercise extreme caution during the
first 100 km (62 miles) when the
motorcycle is new and after the
replacement of a tire.

4.7. Parking the motorcycle
Using the kickstand
WARNING
• Park your motorcycle only on firm, level
ground. Parking the bike on soft ground can
allow the kickstand to dig in, and the motorcycle can fall over resulting in an accident,
personal injury or death.
• If you must park the bike on a slope,
engage first gear and park with the motorcycle facing uphill. Remember to return the
gear lever to neutral before restarting the
engine.
• Never leave your motorcycle unattended
without removing the key.
Using your foot, lower the kickstand as far as it will
go, and then slowly tip the motorcycle toward you to
bring the stand supporting foot into contact with the
ground’s surface.

6.10. Checking and replacing the tires
WARNING
Before using the motorcycle,
always check the pressure and
wear of the tires. The tire air
pressure must be checked and
adjusted on cold tires.
6
Checking the air pressure of each tire is
an essential requirement to ensure driving safety.
Never exceed the maximum inflation
pressure recommended by the tire manufacturer. Refer to the pressures given in §
8.2. or on the label applied to the steering
head tube. In the event of long rides, you
can increase the face value of the tire
pressure by 0.2 bar (0.014 psi). In the
event of use of the motorcycle at a speed
higher than 300 km/h, increase the tyre
pressure with reference to the values
given in § 8.2.
WARNING
Incorrect tire pressure can result in loss of control of the motorcycle, an accident, personal
injury or death.
- 130 -
OM_F4 FT_USA_Ed.1.qxd
1-09-2010
16:09
Pagina 131
MAINTENANCE
Excessive tire pressure reduces grip on the road
and increases the risk that the tire will unexpectedly burst. Inflation pressure that is too low reduces tire performance and increases the probability
of detachment of the tire from the rim, resulting in
sudden and unexpected loss of tire pressure. In
addition, premature wear and damage to the rim
may occur. These conditions can cause loss of
control of the motorcycle, resulting in an accident,
personal injury or death.
Before riding, it is therefore necessary to measure the tire pressure at room temperature. The
vehicle must be parked at least three hours.
6
Moreover, verify the absence of nails and glass
splinters in the tire. If you see any evidence or
wear, have the tire replaced by an authorized MV
Agusta dealer.
Moreover, it is extremely important to check the
wear of the tires before riding. In fact, a worn tire
can be punctured more easily than a new one,
and it can adversely affect handling and stability
of the motorcycle.
Always check the depth of the tire tread. The tread
depth must always be at least 1/8 inch (3 mm).
Verify the absence of crevices at the bottom of the
tread design and fissures on the tire sidewall.
- 131 -
WARNING
• Never ride your motorcycle if the tires
are cut, cracked, leaking or if there is
damage to the tread or sidewall. Never
ride your motorcycle if the tires are not
properly inflated. If the tires of your
motorcycle are worn, have them
replaced by your MV Agusta dealer.
• If a tire is punctured it must be
replaced, not repaired. A repaired tire
provides a restricted performance and
lower safety levels than a new one. If
you make a provisional or emergency
repair to a tire, you must ride at very
low speed until you reach the nearest
MV Agusta dealer and have the tire
replaced. With a provisionally repaired
tire, never exceed 60 km/h (35 mph).

MAINTENANCE
6
Tire repairing must never be performed
if the tire is punctured on its sidewall, or
if the diameter of the puncture on the
tread is greater than 6 mm (0.24 inch).
• Do not use sealing fluids to repair a
punctured tire. These products can
adversely affect the material of the tire
layers, as well as hide the minor damages
caused by objects penetrated in the tire.
• When it is necessary to replace the
tires, use only the type specified in section 8.2. Moreover, avoid using tires of a
different brand or type on the front and
on the rear wheel at the same time.
Using tires different from those specified can adversely affect the handling
and stability of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of accidents with subsequent serious injury or even death.
• Have the tires replaced according to
their direction of spin, which is highlighted by a small arrow on the tire sidewall.
- 132 -
6
• The wheel rims of your motorcycle
have been designed for use with tubeless tires only. Do not assemble an air
tube tire on rims designed for tubeless
tires. Otherwise, the tire bead could not
properly settle down on the wheel rim,
leading to the deflation of the tire and
the loss of control of the vehicle.
• Do not assemble an air tube on a
tubeless tire. The overheating of the tire
could cause the explosion of the air
tube, leading to the deflation of the tire
and the loss of control of the vehicle.
• New tires are sometimes coated with
a mold release agent which makes them
slippery. Abrupt acceleration, sharp
turning or hard braking could cause you
to lose control of your motorcycle. Ride
at reduced speeds and exercise extreme
caution during the first 100 km (62
miles) when the motorcycle is new and
after the replacement of a tire.

Every time you replace a tire or a rim,
you must have a wheel balancing
performed by an authorized MV Agusta
dealer. Wheel unbalance can adversely
affect performance and handling of the
motorcycle, as well as shorten the life of
the tires. This may increase the risk of
accidents, with subsequent serious
injury or even death.
- 134 -
WARNING
When you have a wheel balancing
performed, make sure to assemble only
approved counterweights on the wheel
rim. Do not use balancing or balancing/sealing fluids.
WARNING
Do not attempt to have a tubeless tire
removed without using the proper tools
and protections for the wheel rim.
Otherwise, you could damage the sealing surface of the rim, leading to the
deflation of the tire and the loss of control of the motorcycle resulting in an

Agusta. This is your emission control system DEFECTS WARRANTY.
6.15.3. OWNER'S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES
As the motorcycle owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in
your owner's manual. MV Agusta recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your
motorcycle, but MV Agusta cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts.
You are responsible for presenting your motorcycle to an MV Agusta dealer as soon as a problem exists.
The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
As the motorcycle owner, you should be aware that MV Agusta may deny your warranty coverage if your
motorcycle or a part has failed due to misuse/abuse, an accident, neglect, improper or inadequate maintenance or unapproved modifications, repairs improperly performed or replacements improperly
installed, use of replacement parts or accessories not conforming to MV Agusta specifications which
adversely affect performance, and/or use in competitive racing or related events. The warranty also does
not include inspections and replacement of parts and other services and adjustments needed for
required maintenance, and any motorcycle on which the odometer mileage has been changed so that
actual mileage cannot be readily determined.
If you have any question regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact MV
Agusta U.S.A. LLC, 2300 Maryland Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090-4193 (Tel. +1-215-8303300), or the
California Air Resources Board at P.O. Box 2815, 1001 “I” Street, Sacramento, CA 95812.

In the State of California only, emission related warranted parts are specifically defined by the state's
Emission Warranty Parts List. These warranted parts are: carburetor and internal parts; intake manifold;
fuel tank; fuel injection system; spark advance mechanism; crankcase breather; air cutoff valves; fuel
tank cap for evaporative emission controlled vehicles; oil filler cap; pressure control valve; fuel/vapour
separator; canister; igniters; breaker governors; ignition coils; ignition wires; ignition points; condensers,
and spark plugs if failure occurs prior to the first scheduled replacement; and hoses, clamps, fittings and
tubing used directly in these parts. Since emission related parts may vary from model to model, certain
models may not contain all of these parts and certain models may contain functionally equivalent parts.
In the State of California only, Emission Control System emergency repairs, as provided for in the
California Administrative Code, may be performed by other than an authorized MV Agusta dealer. An
emergency situation occurs when authorized MV Agusta dealer is not reasonably available, a part is not
available within 30 days, or a repair is not complete within 30 days. Any replacement part can be used
in an emergency repair. MV Agusta will reimburse the owner for the expenses, including diagnosis, not
exceeding MV Agusta's suggested retail price for all warranted parts replaced and labour charges based
on MV Agusta's recommended time allowance for the warranty repair and the geographically appropriate hourly labor rate. The owner may be required to keep receipts and failed parts in order to receive
reimbursement.

6.18. Battery
Your motorcycle is equipped with a maintenancefree battery, which is installed under the tail section. This battery does not require checking of the
fluid level or adding of distilled water.
If the battery seems to be run-down (causing electrical problems or a difficult starting), have it
recharged or replaced by an authorized MV
Agusta dealer as soon as possible. Remember
that the battery runs down more quickly if your
motorcycle is equipped with additional electrical
accessories.
In the event of a contact with sulphuric
acid, give the FIRST AID as described
below:
• CONTACT WITH EYES: Wash away
with water for about 15 minutes, and
immediately call a doctor.
• CONTACT WITH SKIN: Wash away
with a great amount of water.
• INGESTION: Drink great amounts of
water or milk, and immediately call a
doctor.
WARNING
If the battery casing is damaged, there
may be a leakage of sulphuric acid, a
HIGHLY TOXIC AND CORROSIVE substance. Avoid any contact with your
eyes, skin and clothes. Always wear
protective glasses when you have to
work near the battery.
WARNING
Leakage of sulphuric acid can result in
the formation of hydrogen gas which, if
ignited by a spark or a flame, would
cause an explosion.
Always have the battery replaced by
your local MV Agusta dealer.

MAINTENANCE
Prolonged inactivity
If the motorcycle is to remain unused for a long
time (a month or longer), it is advisable to disconnect the battery cables or have the battery
removed by an authorized MV Agusta dealer. In
case of prolonged inactivity, to avoid shortening
the life of the battery, it is essential to have it
recharged by your MV Agusta dealer every
month.

WARNING: The inversion of the battery
wires can damage the battery and the
recharging system, causing an electric
shock that can lead to serious injuries or
even death. The red wire must be connected to the positive terminal (+), while the
black wires must be connected to the negative terminal (-). When removing the battery,
disconnect the negative terminal FIRST and
then the positive terminal. When reinstalling
the battery, use the reverse procedure.

6.19. Cleaning the motorcycle
Periodic careful cleaning is a key factor in preserving the value of the
motorcycle, protecting its surface finish and checking for damages, wear
and leakage of corrosive fluids.
CAUTION
Before washing the vehicle,
cover the end of the exhaust
pipes and protect all electrical parts.
WARNING
Do not wash your motorcycle soon after riding. Allow
the engine and the exhaust
pipes to thoroughly cool, in
order to avoid the risk of
serious burns.
CAUTION: Never use washing systems involving
steam or high pressure water jets. These systems
could cause water infiltration and damage the internal parts of your motorcycle.
INFORMATION: Spilling detergent can cause environmental pollution. Therefore, you should clean your
motorcycle in an area equipped for collection and
disposal of washing fluids.
- 157 -
6
OM_F4 FT_USA_Ed.1.qxd
1-09-2010

Pagina 158
MAINTENANCE
Wash the motorcycle with water, a mild detergent
and a sponge. Wipe the motorcycle with a soft
cloth. Use an air jet to dry difficult-to-reach areas.
6
CAUTION
• Avoid using clothes or sponges that
have been in contact with strong or abrasive detergents, solvents or gasoline.
• To avoid irreparable damage to the
front fairing, never use alkaline or
strongly acid detergents, gasoline,
brake fluid or other solvents. Clean the
front fairing only with a soft cloth, warm
water and a neutral detergent.
• If you have doubts about the chemical
composition of the detergent, test its
effect by applying it on a little area of the
fairing before using it on the whole bike.
• Periodically treat the paintwork with
high quality wax. After riding on roads
treated with corrosive substances (salt),
wash the vehicle as soon as possible
with cold water. Do not use hot water as
it enhances the corrosive action.
- 158 -
6
WARNING
Avoid smearing brakes or tires with oil or
wax. If necessary, clean the brake discs
with a brake disc detergent or with acetone, and wash the tires with warm water
and a neutral detergent.
After completing the washing, run the
engine for a few minutes and start off at
reduced speed. Carefully apply the
brakes a few times so as to dry the brake
pads and discs. Failure to heed this warning can cause reduction of braking efficiency and risk of accidents, which could
lead to serious injury and even death.
WARNING
The drive chain must be correctly lubricated after washing the motorcycle, following the instructions provided at §
6.11. of this manual. Failure to heed this
warning can lead to, among other
things, rear wheel lockup with subsequent loss of control and serious injury
or even death.

6.20. Prolonged inactivity
If the motorcycle is to remain unused for a long time, it is
advisable to carry out the following operations:
Empty the fuel tank.
Remove the battery and store it in a suitable place. Recharge the battery every month.
Remove the spark plug caps and the spark plugs. Pour a teaspoonful of engine oil in every spark
plug hole, then place back the spark plugs and the corresponding caps. Make the engine idle for
a few minutes.
Lubricate all control cables and the joints of all pedals and levers.
Clean the motorcycle and treat the paintwork with high quality wax (§ 6.19).
In order to ensure integrity and performance of the tires, park your motorcycle in a fresh, dry and
dark place, with a temperature relatively constant and lower than 25° C (77 °F). Avoid direct contact of the tires with heating pipes or radiators, and prolonged contact with oil or gasoline. Avoid
parking with the tires near to electrical motors or devices capable to produce sparks or electric
discharge. During the period of inactivity, place your motorcycle on the rear stand (§4.7.).
Cover the vehicle with an adequate canvas cover.
When the motorcycle is first put back into service, remember
to carry out a comprehensive check (§ 4.8.) and, if necessary,
to have the vehicle serviced (§ 6.1).
