New Brutale owner...

Hi there,
I am the proud owner of a new Brute 990R...

The bike is so exciting and the power and handling surprise me. I am coming from a Yamy FZ1...but there is no comparison.

I just want to cheers all of you and I hope we can share experiences.

Regards,
Celica

Hola Celica,

Welcome and enjoy your new bike. I just got a new Brutale 910 s a couple of weeks ago and went for my first ride on Sunday and took it to the hills. Very happy, fast, performance, handling, look. etc

Aguante Dani Pedrosa.

Thanx all you guys...

I have only tested the bike the past weekend and found the bike some nervous at the front...I am thinking to install a steering dumper for stability reasons...

celica - " found the bike some nervous at the front...I am thinking to install a steering dumper " - have you checked the tyre pressures - I'd bet the front forks are still bit 'tight' - tried sitting well forward??

I have not tested previous Brute models so I can not say about the tightness of suspenssions...I think the stability "problem" is about the attack angle of the forks and the eager acceleration...that makes, in the other way, the bike so agile...

I have contacted with FG Power Parts in Italy...they are reponsable for the MV original steering dumper accesory with out the Corse logo...

http://www.fgspecialparts.it/en/

The prize is not expensive...about 370€ for the kit for the Brutale that includes all the parts needed to install it in the bike with no modification on the bike so any user can install it without the help of the professionals...
