Martis steering damper

everybody who has the steering damper on the Brutale, did you install them yourself? Or from an 'offical' mechanic?

Do you have to use Loctite glue on the screws which hold the handle bar etc...?
As I understand there a different types of glue (in Europe we don't have Loctite - what is good to use instead?)

(Maybe it could be also interesting to start a Loctite threat (with photos of parts and screws where glue was applied)?

Thank you all in advance!!!

I didn't use when I first install it. After a few kilometers one of the screws got loose. USE IT. There are a few makes...do you know PATTEX NURAL? They do three different ones depending on the materials. I think the best one is 50.

Hi

I installed myself. Took about 20 minutes. Definately use blue loctite on all bolts. Does loctite go by some other name in Europe? I am certain there is some form of it probably under a different name. Install rates as an easy on the do it yourself scale.

After installation of the M4R and some sharp right turns I noticed that the bottom of the Matris mounting kit scratch my gas tank. Has anyone else had this problem?

When I instaled mine it came very close to the tank. When I got together with other Brutale owners I saw that some did and some didn`t. The answer is that the handelbar clamp is like a seesaw and if you tighten the front screws first you can rotate the Matres above the tank. Sorry to hear you scrached your tank They should warn about this in the directions.
