Cutting Out *FIXED*

I picked up my Brutale on Monday. I have about 80 miles on it so far. My issue is that it seems to run on 2 cylinders sometimes. It will run fine most of the time, but sometimes it seems to only fire on 2 or 3 cylinders. It seems random, like, I will get on it a little and the power cuts out, and when I come to a stop light the idle will drop down to 1000 rpm and run really rough. I can hear a bit of pre-ignition when it does this when applying throttle (taking off from stoplight) between 1000 and 2000 rpm. I have ran one tankful of gas through it with 1 oz of stabil. The 2nd tank, I put 3 oz of stabil in... My mechanic says that I have water in my tank. Does this sound correct?

Should I put something else in the tank to get this water out of my tank?

EDIT: Yeah, I already got pulled over by the man, this bike is nuts!

everytime i ride, i pray that i don't
because:
1. you CAN'T go slow on this bike
2. you CAN'T see out of the mirrors.... scares the HELL out of me since there could be 10 cops behind me and i wouldn't even know it

I think I got some bad gas, but you never know... The mechanic asked Ferraci about it, and they said it sounded like bad gas as well. I will know more later, cause I am gonna run at least a couple of tanks through tomorrow and see what happens.

What do you guys think of putting the STP stuff in the tank? Isn't it supposed to absorb water?

Edit: Come to think of it, I think I am going to run a few tanks of the 101 race gas that I use on my Tuna, it never has problems with gas.

If I were you I'd be taking it straight back to the dealer. You've just spent a significant amount of money at the dealership on the bike, the least they can do is source the problem for you (ie bad gas or not bad gas).

Kick up a fuss if you need to! Their job is to look after you.

I just got back from the dealer.
#2 and #3 cylinders no longer fire. There is a strong smell of gas when the bike is running.
So far he changed the coils, the spark plugs, the ECU, and the FI rail w/injectors. No luck. He is checking the valves next.

He said the he WILL get the bike running correctly tonight. I should be able to pick up the bike tomorrow morning.

OUCH...I feel for you, bike being so new and all. It must be fustrating for you.

My bike leaked oil from the valve cover gasket at 1200 miles and I had to take it to the dealer twice (total of 7 days in the shop) to get it resolved. It was fustrating as hell for me.

Thanks for the empathy. When this bike ran well, it was amazing. With all the work that went into it today, it ought to be a bullet proof engine now. I am amazed by my dealer though, OKC has the best MV dealership in the state of Oklahoma. OK OK, so they are the only dealer in Oklahoma.... but they do work hard to make sure that I am happy. I have had quite a few bikes, and I have never had a dealer so intimately knowledgeable about the inner workings of the bikes that they sell than these guys. I am in good hands. I can't wait to hear "It's all fixed, go have a ton of fun." Too bad tomorrow is going to be really cold. I may have a bit of frostbite next time I post... hehehe
