brutale 990R known problem and identification
About to take a plunge on a brand new last year's 990R Italy 150th edition.
I've done my homework and found out about return spring failure and ecu failure stalling engine on downshift and hard braking issues on early small batch of 990R. Does anyone know how to identify the version of the bike without actually having to buy the bike first? The number on the limited edition plate is 127 if that helps. There is no MV workshop or official dealer in my country, so warranty is out of question, need to make a very careful decision. Dont mind buying the spring parts and sooner or later will buy microtec anyway, but i want to fix any issues before it happen and hoping to use this issue as bargaining position to my favor.
Secondly, does anyone know somebody with workshop manual for 990R?? The life of this bike will depend on myself with this manual and no dealer support in the country.
Thanks in advance
