Backfire : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

Anybody ever have their F4 engines backfire on them? If so, is there a reason for this? Only happened once but once is enough. Any worry about damage or anything? Rode the bike twice since then and all seems fine.

no need to worry. your bike is running rich, which is way better than lean. get it checked at the next service interval.

I actually have had mine backfire a few times. In fact, it had a huge backfire during a ride the other day. I think mine is due to the fact that the mid-pipe slightly cracked and I have an exhaust leak.

Don't worry at all! my EVO3 used to do Backfiring due to rich running, after the 6000 Km. check i made my Mech adjust the carburation & Co2 emission, now everything runs smooth.

I noticed that usually new MV comes from the factory in too rich running condition, you're the 7Th person i hear (including me) that had this problem, i just wonder why this happens so often.

Ciao, Paolo
