What is the NEXT modification you will do to your Brutale?

What are you planning to modify on your Brutale next?
What do you hope to "gain" from that modification?

Thanks in advance

is this because of the elimination of the catalytic converter?

Correct, that alone is said to help much, but I it will further alow me to ceramic coat from the headers to the beg. of the tailpipes for even more cooling effect.

if i might ask what is probably a very pedestrian question,
what exact ceramic coating will you use and how is it applied?

in Florida, as in Arizone.... these issues are of paramount importance

thanks in advance

Ceramic coating provides an insulating quality to the exhaust which keeps more of the heat inside the pipe, thus accelerating the gases out more efficiently. It keeps the outside temps cooler and will add a little horsepower to boot. I plan to do mine in a gold satin patina that closely matches the gold of stainless pipe. It also will get rid of the blueing so common to stainless as well. I will do a before and after shot to show the difference. My local shop will do my headers and mid pipe for $165.00 which is reasonable. Even though I may pick up a few horsepower in the process, I am doing it primarily for cooling and looks.

thats quit intresting, first time i ever hear of such thing , hope to see pictures soon


My next purchase will be :
- new tires (again )

My next purchase could be :
- steering damper
- mid pipe swap

and after reading lorenzotx reply i'm thinking of buying the inox midpipe instead of the titanium (save a lot of money), let it paint with that ceramic coating and put the titanium mufflers on the end

I didn't realize the effect that would help on cooling but it sounds great. I was riding yesterday and the engine was puting off so much heat that the footpegs were burning hot to the touch. This bike puts off some serious heat.

Exhaust coatings have now become sort of a hotrod standard thing to do for may race engines, primarily in the race car world. The motorcyle guys are starting to do it more often now and the idea is catching on. There seems to be some performance benefit as well as looking good and there are a number of color possibilities for those customizers out there.
