New Brutale S & Upgrade Questions

Just picked up a 1400 mile 2005 Brutale S (750cc) in matt gray color, and want to make some cosmetic changes. What is best license plate replacement bracket, bar ends, carbon fiber (CF), rear sets, etc. I have seen the various Rizoma and Melotti parts - any differences? CF looks expensive, and with experience on my two Yamha R6s, factory GYTR CF parts are MUCH better quality than aftermarker CF parts. Is this true for CF parts from factory MVA vs. aftermarket as well?

Any other comments much appreciated.

Our other scooters include:

2000 Moto Guzzi V11 , green color, with Magni fairing, and many upgrades, incluidng rearsets, CF bits, Pazzo levers, exhaust. My big bad favorite -- a real "man's cicle"

2001 Aprilia RS50

2003 Aprilia RS50

(Two, red and blue colors) 2002 Yamaha R6 with all CF parts, full Galfer brake kit (HUGE difference), rear sets, exhaust, Pazzo levers.

The MV Corse carbon is by far the best stuff, but a few of the aftermarket guys have pretty good stuff, too.

And, yep, Carbon Sickness is a very costly disease to treat.

Congrats on the new bike, enjoy.

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