Hi, my name is Jake, I live in Vacaville Ca. I have 2014 Brutale 800 that I have bought used about 2 weeks ago. This is my first Italian bike and I really like it. It does have the common issue with the starter assembly/sprag. I have ordered a new 1 from Moto Corsa and will be changing it out. My previous bike was a Honda RC51. I am a little disappointed in fit and finish on the MV but the fun factor is great. I will b changing out the seat cover-too slick. I got rid of the ugly carbon canister that was hanging off the left side. I will b blacking out all the not black parts the should have been black in my opinion I have a MotoCorse steering bracket and Ohlins dampner but the MotoCorse bracket comes into contact with the fuel tank. I might put the drag bars on instead and use a different dampner/bracket. Tank needs grip tape. I will post before and after pics
