New to me 2006 Brutale 910S. What to expect.

Hi All,
Finally bought me a used 2006 910S!

Took me a good two months to find one. It has 14,000 miles on it.

Rode 210 miles yesterday. Loved the intake noise and the throttle response

Suspension felt taut. More so than my old '97 gsxr 600 race bike. Even with a 190 cross section tire, it turns quick.

Some observations-

Rear brake master cylinder looks to be leaking.
Fork seals need changed.
Engine oil looks slightly overfilled, will drain some.
Headlight cover missing.

Feel free to add anything I need to be aware of on this model bike.
Thank you!

Welcome to the forum mate. You can download the Workshop manuals from my site. Have a look through the the Maintenance and other sections for lots of info on your bike. How did you buy a bike without a headlight lens, that's going to cost you BIG.

Thanks, Donsy!

Love the maintenance manuals on the site, they are very helpful.

The headlight cover fell off with the previous owner. The headlight lens are still intact.

Will ride it without a headlight cover for now as these are very hard to find used.

I do need a rear swingarm stand, hoping someone has one on sale here.

You've got me confused with this headlight cover. Are you talking about an aftermarket plastic cover (I don't believe they came standard) or the actual glass covering the lens/bulbs?

Cheers

As Deano said, headlight cover is not standard.
Where are you located mate, guys are often giving those standard stand away for nothing, and there's one up for sale in that section for a crazy high price.
There's a lot of options for rear stand on the market at great prices.

Sorry for the confusion! I meant the original equipment MV glass cover for the headlight lens/bulbs.

Please let me know if you see some inexpensive stands for sale. Thank you!

No worries about the stand. As for the headlight glass, you can't buy that separate, it's going to cost you about $500 I think. Did you buy the bike like that, is ask for some money back.

Yes, I factored the price of the headlight glass when I bought it from the buyer. He used it without the headlight glass for a while and it seems ok, functionally.

I see Star Twin has the lens only now on their parts list at 160 Euro's, not sure if you can buy it separate now or not ?
