Hi Everyone! Several questions.... (seat, km, bolts)

It's been a while since I posted on here - how is everyone?

I need a new seat for my black 1078 and am planning on buying a Corbin. What colors should I get? I got on the Corbin website and was overwhelmed by the options. Anybody got pics of a nice combination?

Is there a way I can switch my speedo over to metric? I'm living in Seoul now and it would be easier on my old brain if the instruments would read kilometers.

Lastly, I bought gold titanium bolts for my handlebar clamp a long time ago. They still look awesome and the rest of my bolts have been going downhill so I'm finally ready to buy some more. Anybody know the sizes of the bolts used on the Brutale? Especially the bolts for the key guard - those are a rusty mess now.

Yes.
Start the engine then follow the directions below.
You can also set the temperature reading to celsius. This is in the F4 manual but I think that you'll find that this applies to the Brutale as well -I think that your Brutale is a 2009, looking at the frame number.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Cool! That sounds pretty easy . I'll do it tomorrow. Thanks!

Who's got Corbin seats? I was just going to order "black leather" but then I saw all the different options and that you can pick seating panels, side panels and welts separately. My little brain can't handle that many potential combinations. And it looks like the example they have in the photo isn't just straight black leather.

Here's some of the options:

So I see that Pro-Bolt carries an "engine kit" of gold titanium bolts for older F4's. I'm thinking this kit would fit the engine on my 1078 Brutale. Can anyone confirm these are the same bolts I need?

ETA: And the worst looking bolts on my bike are the ones that hold the key guard - does anyone know the size of those? And yes, one of the things I am going to order is the sizing gauge!

Yeah, I went to the site thinking "black leather" and then I saw all these possibilities that sounded like they might look cool. I'd be worried some of the rougher looking textures might mar the paint on the tank where it touches.

Ok Spry....here is some info for you.

I have used the Probolt MV Agusta F4 stainless steel engine bolt kit on my Brutale 1078rr..and yes it fits. I assume the titanium one is the same.
I've enclosed some photos of it installed on the bike..and a comparison between the OEM Bolts and the 'replacements ..(along with the packaging). My old OEM bolts are in the packaging.


The size of the 'Keyguard' retaining bolts you asked about ...they are M5 x 14mm (thread length) with a 0.8mm thread pitch.
They accept a 4mm hex into their head.
They(OEM) also have two little 'cups/sleeves' that they pass through and this will locate into the 'recesses' in your key guard.

Again I've enclosed some photos which may be of help.
All my best
Brian

Thanks very much!!! That was a great help. I ordered the engine kit, the key guard bolts and a couple other packs. I wanted to order more but I have a lot of sizing to do before the next order. And of course, I ordered the little thing to help determine sizes.

This is going to make my bike look sooooo much better!
