Don't do it!
I did and regret it. I don't know if anyone had this problem, but the cover fits too damned tight. It is a chore to get it on and off unless they now changed them.

Ive now 2 factory covers, and yes they are tight to start with, but the elastic edge streches, and really is you want a dust safe seal, then tight is good.
Whats really good about them is the velvet like inner material, last thig you want is a scratch on you tank!

Look real good as well

Keep in mind, you have the F4. It might be very different for the Brutale. Mine was so tight it really would not fit properly.

I use one from Geza Gear (http://gezagear.com/) - pro series. I like it; easy to put on, carry, etc but I am seeing some wear through that I can't figure out. The material is thick but there is a spot back by the tail that appears to have heat or chemical damage. Thing is, I have not touched the exhaust or spilled anything on it.

I need to contact them to see about warranty.

I have a Geeza gear cover that I have owned for about 8 years. Not sure it would hold up for outside use, but otherwise its ok.

You gotta be crazy, gotta have a real need....

Mine isn't for trailering or winter storage so it probably isn't going to help anybody, but seeing as we're talking bike covers, I use a cheap-ass cover to hide the bike in carparks. It's dead thin, loose and shabby, and it rolls up to fit under the seat, so I have it everywhere I go in the city. It's just the sort of thing to make the brute look like just another bike with a hood.

And to stop the pipes from melting the cover...drape a microfibre cloth over the cans. Yeah, the one we all carry under the seat.

I followed awiner's advice. I got the Ferracci cover yesterday and it is great.

If for outdoor, I've seen and like the Oxford covers.

Start here and scroll down (USA supplier):

I have the factory indoor as well but have never used it. I could see it for overwintering a bike I guess.
