Default brutale 990R known problem and identification

hi all,
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

Oh yeah, got a total of 5 ducati dealers in the country, so Throttle body sync and TPS reset shouldn't be a problem yes??

Had my 990r for over a year and done over 23000km. So far had no issues except that the exhaust valve motor keeps running when u switch on the key. Had my dealer disconnect it. Other than that i'm happy. Did regular 1000km round trip fom kl to thailand.

LOL!! Relax mate, i did not actually remember the exact number, but its 12something /150.
Since you own the 127th, if its not too much to ask, do you have the updated version of return spring and ecu or the older one with stalling issue? If yours is the updated version, then i am sure the one i am eyeing is the updated version as well.

How is that possible without dismantling the trans cover and ecu? I even had to ask permission before i could sit on the bike, let alone fire it up. I doubt very much they will let me dismantle it....LOL!!!

Default Gearbox spring

Unfortunately, there is no visual means of detecting the spring's replacement without removing the cover.

Replacing the spring, along with the two required shims, is not a particularly difficult job. No special tools are required, and can be done in about an hour.

I changed out the spring in my 1090RR a few weeks ago and photographed the process, with the thought of writing up a report and posting it to this forum. However, of late there has not been much discussion, so I did not wish to use up the bandwidth.

In any event, it should not be much of a limiting factor in your purchase decision.

Ciao,
Dick

I'm not sure what you mean?
I've now have the race ECU with the MV corse exhaust.
Never had a problem with stalling on either ECU.

Let me know what to check and I''l have a look.
