Track only 1090

So I bought a 2013 1090 for track only use. I am stripping it of the street stuff and trying to make it more of a track bike. For thoes who track their bike's, what suspension settings do you suggest?

Also looking for anyone state side who sells the brutale challange nose fairing.

Thatís a mighty interesting approach, turning the 1090 into a track beast. Please post pics of before and after along with the list of mods done. Iím actually selling my R6 track bike to get something with a bit more motor. Iíve never considered a Brute for track but at todayís prices for these bikes it could be a worthwhile option.

I am a track day instructor and former racer. I needed a bike that could be somewhat comfortable and had power to keep up with students on R1's and BMW's, my.old Suzuki sv could not hang lol. I got this brutale as a non registerable bike. So it can never be on the street... Perfect for me. I figured this would make a unique track bike.

Ok so things I have noticed with my new to me MV. Getting it into sport mode takes an act of god. The seat always feels kinda loose?? My Ducati 55m socket needs some extra encouragement to get on the rear nut. One of the bolts on the cartridge filter cover just spins.. I assume the threads are gone. It does not leak.. I just did the oil.

Interesting, I was wondering why it was a tight fit on that nut.

So took the bike to the track over the weekend. Wow this thing is fast!! What a beast. I really like the bars compared to the clip ons I'm use too.

But I have a question.. My block is covered with oil.. It looks like its coming from the valve cover. I might have over filled it. I did read that it will over flow into the air box? What do you all think??

Your valve cover gasket is leaking. The oil pools in the left front corner of the head when the bike is on the side stand. That's why it leaks there.

Any bike with overfilled oil level will pump oil into the air box....don't do that (not to mention horsepower loss from internal engine windage and pumping pressure). Siphon some out if the level is too high.

Ok, so if its over filled not a problem I can fix that. The gasket sounds like a hard job. If it pools to one side do you suggest I leave the bike on the rear stand than?

No...fix it. It is not hard at all.....unlike some Hondas and Kawasakis.

Tank comes off easily, air box comes off easily.... just be aware you need to loosen the radiator so it can move forward a bit for more room to work during install.

Use SuzukiBond 1205B or Yamabond #5 or similar non-hardening gasket sealant. The service manual calls for sealant only on the half moons in the head cam cut-out area (fine for a new gasket)....use a thin coating all the way around and you can probably reuse the existing seal.
