I have the Matris M4R on my Brutale. I love the looks and it works very well. Plenty of adjustability. Personally I like this look better than the Ohlins/Scott approach, but that's me.

For aggressive riding I think it is a good safety feature.

I decided to "bite the bullet" and invest in a couple of torque wrenches. Torque settings are critical for many of the fastners on the MV. You will probably need two, one for the lighter stuff and a heavy duty 1/2 in drive for things like the rear hub nut, ect... Prepare to drop +$200 for couple good ones from Sears/Craftsman. Get the model that displays in digits both ft/lbs and Nw/Mts. They are easier to use and there is no question what the setting is. Stay away from the Chinese cheapos. Just MHO.
