battery connections : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

The battery on my 2 year i month F4 has given up(i assume due to lack of use-1800miles) Having removed the battery i noticed that the rear connection is marked red and the front black however the battery is front + and rear - Is any one elses bike marked back to front.

That's ugly. What brand of battery?

I have to comment on battery fitment,two weeks before i had my MV from my boss he had called a local bike shop for a replacement battery due to the origional one not working.The shop fitted it and it was noticed that the battery had leeked all over the rear of the bike.The shop had no choice but to take full responsability becourse after they emailed MV Agusta, they faxed through a battery fitting procedure in which the shop had not followed while fitting the new battery.They were liable for 2000 worth af dammage in which they did put right,so if you think that fitting a battery is simple THINK AGAIN. I still thave the faxed through procedure from MV if any one wants to know how to fit the battery this involves letting the battery sit for a couple of hours ect.I am so glad that the shop fitted it and not me.Chas

Charles, that would be a good bit of info to post here. If you can scan it, that would be great. If not, can you mail it to someone who can? I can scan it... Or if it's not too much info can you just type it out?

I'm VERY interested in this because this is now the 3rd bike I've heard about that has had sever acid damage.
