Low Down ,update

So drop the girl at dealer last week before I went away to have new tank installed and TPS set and tuned to get rid of hick up and low RPM stall. Didn't talk the service manager until last Sat when I got home so here is what is going down.
Tank is on and good! HURRAY!! The stalling not done?? Why I ask?, The shop called Cagiva US and sked them WTF is going on with the stalling issue?? They said order a new computer and that will fix it, so they did. 2 hours after ordering the computer Mr. Ferracci calls to speak with service manager and asked him why they needed a computer?? So he explained and told him what Cagiva said. NO MR.F says you need a new CDI that is what is F'ng the bikes up !
So I have a new CDI on order which is back ordered. Some will say "figures they never have parts in stock" But the bottom line in they have a new supper seaded part number for it which usually means it is a new or redesigned part so they will change the part number. The shop is confident that if Mr.F says that's the problem then that is problem? They were also given a check list to go through after they install new CDI so I will cross my fingers!
For the record I do have confidants in the shop and they were schooled at Mr.Ferracci's facility so in my opinion schooled by the BEST! I will follow up on work and tell all of my findings. Let me go so I can pick the bike up and ride her for mean time. L8r

Wow! And I thought that I was the only one with Brute problems.

What happens if Mr. F is wrong?

Seriously, good luck in getting the parts needed. Over two months waiting on a fender I can imagine how long it will take to get a new CDI.

My '08 has never stalled??? Maybe I already have updated CDI. But surge at steady cruise 6~65K rpm is waiting on new ECU to fix. But I can live with that. It's not so bad and I can always speed up or slow down if it annoys me (which it hasn't yet).
Remonds me, I need to call dealer tomorrow for update on ECU.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Surging I can deal with when I get it back. The stall issue is what I hope is cured if not then we start all over. Anyone like to educate me on the function of the CDI since I never asked the service manager that question??

When I took delivery there was an issue with severe surge at 5500 rpm steady cruise. The dealer "tuned" around it with fuel trim and careful adjustments, but it is still there (although at 6500 now and not near so bad). This is the new Euro 3 closed loop O2 sensor system. My '08 910R was the second one the shop had sold with this same concern. Cagiva had said they would have a new ECU to address this, and it was being sent out shortly (this was mid-August).

I'm still waiting. Forgot to call for an update today. I spent the morning taking a ride in a WWII B-17G bomber (quite an experience) and riding my bike up to Road Atlanta for the WERA Nationals. So I was distracted.

But never any stalling. And averaging 36 mpg over last 1000 miles!!!
