New member with some pics!

Hi all,

I didn't see a specific section for this but I wanted to introduce myself to the forum. I've been lurking for awhile and I like this place already! I live in Salt Lake and actually bought an 04 Brutale in Texas and rode the thing back to Salt Lake... what a way to start on my first Italian bike huh?

Questions I had while riding back... what are the mirrors even for? Checking to make sure the Alpinestars logo's are still stitched onto my jacket? Cause thats all I can see with them, lol.

I run GP shift on my street bikes and race bike... whats the cheapest way I can get that on my Brutale? I can't just flip the knuckle like I can on my R6.

Anyway, i'm loving the bike so far and I can't wait to do some mods to it! Here is the bike on the way home from Texas:



It has the cat removed and a PCIII on it (with just the stock map which is waaay to rich). MC Corse carbon front fender, key guard, upper and lower swingarm protector, billet oil cap, and thats pretty much it.

Things I plan on... Gotta get GP shifting figured out my brain can't do it the normal way, lol. mapping, suspension (holy way too stiff batman), maybe some headlight mods... who knows!

Welcome and Congrats!

Best way for gp shift is the shift drum--pretty straight forward, do a search here.

Thanks I did a search it would be cool to see a 'how to' with some pictures (or maybe I am just a poor searcher). If I end up doing the drum I will have to make one! More costly than my $25 shift rod I had to buy on my R6 to convert it, hahaha.

Welcome!

I am thinking there have been a few people with f4's that have installed a shift drum to do the GP shift...

I believe she is the Devil in a candy wrapper.
