Digging my Brutale

Few little quirks, but absolutly love the bike. Very Fast. Gonna take thye 41t off for a 43. Filled up one day and fuel poured out of an overflow for a bit. Normal? too full? No light on the tach? Cant see at night. On occasion it will just die while in traffic like it gets confused a low rpms. Aggravation more than anything. The rubber stuff seems it isnt good. Changed all of the caps on the charcoal cannister deals , 2 on ea side. Is the an AIS system on here? smog air pump deal? Seems to backfire on decel some. Overall I love it. Oh sometime the headlight blinks, could this be related to no tach light?

Hi V10,

Glad you like your Brutale. The more you ride it, the more you will like it.

Keep the fuel level about an inch below the white plastic filler neck or it will overflow everywhere.

I can't comment on the charcoal canister as ours don't come with them. If you search on here you will find info on how to remove it.

The blinking headlight and no dash lights is not good. It could be a dodgy SPU.

Mine also crackles and pops a bit on overrun.

Dave.

Check the plugs on the harness for wet or corrosion or loose connection first. Perhaps add dylectic (sp) grease.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

plus one on the electric grease. Pull all the fuses put a little bit on and put them back. I also read on here where someone greased the throttle bodies fitting to make them airtight and the stalling went away - havent tried that on mine yet - still too cold to ride but its on the spring prep list.

Dave.
Agree with above but, but since your bike has been modified a think the idle rpm is just too low.

If the Head light only blinks when the bike is idling, then the idle it probably too low. If blinks randomly all the time, then dodgy SPU more likely

The ECU controls the head light, and when the idle is too low It will blink each time the engine is close to stalling. Increase the idle and it might cure the blinking headlamp and the stalling at traffic lights.

Have my modified Brute set to 1600-1700rpm idle. Some might think this is too high, but mine purrs all day long and headlight doesn't blink. Feels and sounds better.

The no tach light was a bulb. Easy to change. My idle is about 1300-1400.

I have concluded that my headlight deal was me hitting the flash button with my glove, making it flicker. Now that I became aware of it, hasn't did that since. I cant wait for my new chain and sprocket set[back to 43t fr/41].

910r

Can't wait to get mine, coming from Cali soon. I beleive it definitiely has the SPU issue as it will not hold idle when hot. It also tends to lose a bit of coolant even though it is filled to the low line. Has a power commander installed which may need the proper map as it has the titanium corse exhaust and chip. Will keep you posted. Shipping from Cal will be at least $500. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Regards,

joe
