Question for the F4 1000 owners - how hot does it run?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

What temperatures are you getting when at a stop or driving in traffic? I'm wondering if the 1000cc tends to run hotter than the 750. Thank you.

My 1000 runs normally on a temperature of 70/80c. In slow traffic it comes near 90c. When standing still it goes to 102c max before it drops back to about 94c. I had a 750 before and my experience is that the 750 runs hotter than the 1000.

Thank you. In Fahrenheit, that would be:

80C = 176F; 90C = 194F; and 102 = 215.6

Hi Allan, some weeks ago when it was 33C outside and I was in traffic in town with my F4 the temperature was 122C. Andre Goggi ment that this is a little too hot. I dont know what it is in Fahrenheit - sorry. My F4 1000 is much hotter than my 750! The maximum of my 750 was at a temperature outside 38C (Varese/Italy) in traffic 114C. - Andr of Germany

No problem, I can convert for the metrically challenged:

33C = 91F 122C = 252F 38C = 100F 114C = 237F

My F1000 runs with ambient temperatures below 20C between 75 and 80 C,

between 20 and 28C goes up to 85C at speeding above 80 km/h.

In trafic jams it goes up to 92C in temp. below 20C and may go up to 102C at stilstand in hot situations.

Is quite similar as my previous 750.

On the other hand heat evacuation is different as I feel a lot more heat below my legs at low speed and at stilstand compared to my 750 F4.

regards

I would say my 1000 does get hotter quicker than the 750 I owned before it,It also on hotter days (25C), gets to 102C and although the fans are running it will stay there untill I move away,sometimes lifting the revs to 2000 will cool it down quicker, I suppose the water is going around quicker. Also I think the panels are different to the 750, as they seem to go very floppy with the heat, something I never noticed in 4 1/2 years of 750 ownership
