MvAgusta 1000 Agogreenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
On Friday I got my Mv Ago from Fast by Ferracci I have only compliments for Mr. Ferracci and Ed their salesman they are great people and very professional. I just have to express how much I am disappointed with my Mv! After 15 miles it started running like a crap!!! The bike from 1000 to 3000 Rpm it runs like is starving for gas and you are under impression that only two cylinders are running. Above 3000 Rpm it kind of wakes up but with so much backfire almost like shooting a Gatling gun every 10 second or so you hear very loud explosion from the pipes. Last night after 120 miles on the bike it broke down in the middle of Brooklyn Queens Expressway shooting fuel from under a tank and basically washing the engine with gas (approximately 3 Gallons in les than 20 second) they forgotten to properly install all fuel lines. So much for quality control! Just so you know engine temp was 242 Which is another problem I saw up to 264 on the city. Unfortunately I did not test ride it before, if I did I will newer spent $26435.50 plus tax for the bike that only looks good…

I'm sorry that has happened to u ...in the future if you see temperatures at that level (242 all the way to 264) without any antifreeze spilling over I guess u must be one of the lucky people...also when stuff starts to happen like the Gattling gun as u put it ...that to me would be enough to stop and call the dealer and explain the situation...I would guess they would take care of U professionally and my guess would be that u would not have been stuck in the middle of the Brooklin queens Expressway...on another note maybe the Mv is home sick... Good luck and use common sense...its the wise thing to do ... Rui C. Gomes

So it`s running like a pig, overheating, backfiring etc, and you continue to ride it for 120 miles...............Did you think that was normal??????

Agron, I'm sorry to hear about your experience so far with the Ago. However, as Ferracci is the official importer for MV Agusta, I'm sure that he would personally see to it that your problems are corrected. Give him a call, after all he has met you several times in person already so there is no reason he wouldn't want to make sure you are 100% satisfied. P.S. If you want to sell it for a very cheap price email me, I want one!
