Unhappy Brutale went to the dealer

Hello all,

After stalling for 2 times in the same morning, I decided to return my Brutale to the dealer.

No problems receiving it, just a quick phonecall and the pickup was scheduled.

The thing is that in 5 months this us the 5th time that my bike stalls.

Symptoms:

#Temperature: medium to high (from 80º to 95º Celsius)
#Speed: from 80km/h reducing to 10km/h then stop. (like approaching a roundabout)
#clutch fully pressed
#Gear: 4th passing to 3rd
#Weight: 2 persons
#Fuel: 95 octanes


Do you remember any symptom from your "stalling"? I would like to complete this listing.

It could be the fuel filter damaged or with something stuck in it, or the old "electrical cdu/power unit" problem.

Don't even know if the dealer can replicate the issue.

I will keep you posted.

Cheers



Luís

Lisbon, Portugal

wow consider yourself lucky then. my bike stalls about 1-2 times per ride on average. some days it can stall 3-4 times on the way to work, other days i make it all the way without stalling. my bike has probably stalled several hundred times in the last 2 years. dealer could not fix it. my problem is that it's too costly for me to force them to fix it since they are $40 in gas roundtrip away from me. my dealer has figured that out, so when i drop the bike off, they call back and say "it's fixed". i go pick up the bike and no improvement. now another $40 in gas to bring it back and have them try again. rinse and repeat a dozen times. bike still stalls, i'm out hundreds of dollars in gas money. basically a big rip-off scam they have going.

A lot of times it has to do with the kickstand safety switch.
All it needs is a weak internal spring and it will drive you nuts and broke. Try bypassing it, who knows! Good luck!

TPS adj or perhaps a tight valve?

Mine from new only stalled once or twice until the first service, then started stalling like mad, took at back a couple thousand miles ago, they adjusted TPS and no probs since.

There have been posts about iridium spark plugs. My bike stalled randomly for over 3 years and stopped after installing the plugs and a bmc air filter.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

I was under the impression stalling issues were only a Ducati thing!
