Someone slap me

Hi Guys. So I rode my '06 speed triple to mcc outside chicago on saturday for their open house.....and left with a '10 1090RR. The day went by like a blur. I vaguely remember demoing the Brut, then having my girlfriend push me to buy it...

I really loved my s3 and especially the low rev torque, but it was time for something new. The suspension, slipper clutch, power delivery, brakes and sound of this bike are incredible. If I had been more well off I might've kept the s3, but as they say "out with the old, in with the new".

Were moving to New England soon (southern Maine), so I won't have the luxury of being so close to an MV dealer, but I'm hoping the quality of this bike will stand the test of time and wont require me to hit the shop in Boston.

You guys dig the '10 1090RRs?

Thanks everyone! I felt like I knew all the idiosyncrasies of my S3. Are there any common things with the 1090RR? It seems like they worked out the SPU problem with that model. Anything else I should know about?

Tires, they eat tires for some reason.

Traction control my arse, this thing drifts like a tuner car.

Welcome! Congrats on the bike. I was at MCC open house in the morning. Great people. I rode in on my 2010 1090RR, which I bought from MCC. I love mine and have no issues with it. Enjoy yours.

i have the same model and its fine.

yes the spu has been worked out not many complaints on the 2010 design. just keep the rear axle bearings checked every 3-4k miles and you should be fine.

also if the bike has not already, maybe have a good shop sync the throttle bodies and double check the a/f ratio and such.

my bike had a bit of low end choppyness to it, and when i brought it in for the 7500 mile service the shop took a look at it and adjusted both, and it runs much smoother now and doesn't do a bounce on startup with the rpm of stalling out at times. that is fixed. all it needed was to be tuned right it seems. but that is my bike not sure if yours will have the same issues.

also the 2010 had a soft recall with the shifter spring, if it has not been done yet, bring the bike into an authorized dealer to have the shifter spring replaced under warranty, it was a service recall, the euro guys know about, it but the usa guys you had to ask the dealer to do it and then when they would check it was something that was replaced free of charge. basically instead of a spring being made of round stock it was made of a slightly square stock and is a little stronger than what they put on at the factory.

good luck and have fun, remember the bike is great when going over 50 mph.
