Brutale 1090RR 2012

Hi I'm new to this forum and new to MV though I do currently have an S1000RR and a Ducati Paul Smart 1000 and soon a 2012 Brutale 1090RR.

This my first MV , It only has less than 2000km so just past the 1st service. Here are my questions?
- what do I need to look out for maintenance wise? What are the issues with this model and year?
- what are the best tail tidy, levers and crash protection? Normally I use R & G and Pazzo but doesn't seem to be much available from them.
- I live in Sydney, Australia so not a lot of service options here so are there any recommendations?
- are there any other 'Trick' bits folks are fitting?

Thanks

Phillip

The fuel tank expanding is an issue, but I think that's an ethanol fuel problem. My understanding is that AU isn't making people use the ethanol laced fuel, so your probably ok. If it is an issue, the warranty will replace it. Some people complain about a snatchy throttle, usually the MV dealer can sort that out too. There's quite a LOT trick bits out there for your bike. What's your taste? Look cool with carbon and magnesium parts all over the place? Or maybe you want another 20 plus HP? A little of both? Options are endless, you can easily spend more on parts than what the purchase price of the bike itself. These bikes are like having a boat, it's a hole in the water you throw money into...

Trick bits can easily be found with the forum sponsors/vendors.

For levers CRG RC2 part numbers 2AN-523 and 2AN-623 bolt straight on and look wicked. Also I fitted a Tamburini Corse windscreen to mine and its looks even better than stock. Quite a bit better and it wasn't exactly ugly stock.

If you have a look at the page 3 of this forum you will see my post labelled F1 Tamburini Screen. You will see a couple of photos there and in one you will get a rough idea what the levers look like too.
