chain or gear driven cams/service manual : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

I am contemplating purchasing an MV Augusta. The nearest dealer is too far away to take the bike in for service, so I cannot own the bike unless I do all the maintenance my self..

Does anyone know if the sevice manual for the MVs are thorough and of good quality?

Also, does anyone know if the camshafts are gear driven or chain driven? thanks, Tony

Hi Antonio,

the camshafts are chain driven.

good luck getting a service manual, if you get one. PLEASE let me know. The only problem i had was with my 6000 mile service. for some reason the dealer had a hard time getting the gasket to fit properly and made it leak oil right onto the exhaust. took about three trips to get it fixed and i had to get a new valve cover gasket. i have heard of a few others with the same issue. the engine is pretty much straight forward though as far as i know

Good luck with the service manual, I havn't seen one yet. The Cams are chain driven through the centre of the block between cylinder 2&3.
