910r advice needed quickly please

after testing both 990 and 1090 this weekend have almost talked myself into a 990 .

however could get 910r for 2.5k less , have ridden 910 also and do prefer 990 , but how much of the cash difference would i need to make the 910 fuel and ride like the 990 ?

Sorry for rambling , its my birthday , had a couple + need to make a desicion soon.

Given the choice, i would go with the 990 i think. Im pretty impressed on some of the writeups on it... trying to turn the 910R into a 990 is going to cost with suspension, fueling etc and then you have a bike that is not under warranty as you have mucked with it.

Cheers, Simon

Ask X-81 (Chris) how much for the MicroTech ECU...that is all you need for the fueling...get with a suspension expert and set your suspension up properly for your weight and riding style. Should not be too costly.

And happy birthday!!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Having ridden the 990, I'd say go with the 910. The 990 has all the nice electronic gizmos, and feels more civil, but really, do you want civil in a brutale? The 990 just felt like there was too much extra there. Bigger, more plasticy, just not the same build quality and feel. That said, either one is better than none at all

Having got a 910R with a PCIII and filter, its all the power i need, i'm currently having the suspension tweaked, therefore i wont be needing anything new for a couple of years at least, with the 910R you get better wheels and brakes, and better suspension although it does need tweaking for plushness. and as Gle8 said if you want civil then buy a Jap, the original Brutale has that much character its not funny, i doubt i'll ever sell mine.

Cheers

are we missing the question a little here (no offence)?

Its not: Which is better for various reasons?

Its: I like the 990 over the 910, but can i save a few bob buy making a 910 feel, ride and fuel like the 990?

WIth all the mucking about and adding thingd, potential warranty issues having changed things with the 910... I would say that it would be better to just go with the 990 surely?

Simon
