Rearsets. : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

Hi everybody, I recently purchased a 00 F4 in basically mint condition out here in Dubai and am ecstatic. She is carrying just over 6000KM on the clock which I assume is a very low milage. My GSXR does that in one winter!It has been a long time coming ever since those first pictures I saw all those years ago! Anyway, I am intrigued to know if anyone else is having issues with the position of the rear brake lever. I know that the rear brake is renowned as being rubbish (mine really is non-existant) and have read with interest the suggested remedies that I will look into; but does anyone have any tried and tested suggestions on adjustable rearset manufacturers? Thanks for the time. Regards to all, David.

My dealer filled in Castrol SRF Oil, which should have a high temperature resistance. But up to now I have no experience yet with it.

Regarding rear sets, you might try They have adjustable rear sets listed. I believe that there are a couple of others making them, perhaps Ferracci, and someone else that I saw. I hope this is useful. Good luck and glad to hear that you finally lusted long enough to materialzed the rear thing!!!

My thanks to you both for the info. I am aware of the rearsets available from the manufacturers mentioned but has anyone got them and how do you rate them?

I have Gilles Tooling ( on my F4 and Brutale, I think they look nicer than the casoli tyes, are available in 3 colours, and now you can have either reverse shift, or standard shift. Have a look at the PDF in the catalogue, you'll notice the bike (mine) has the standard kick plates on it, as they look nicer than the ones supplied.
