MV again

Hi everyone, Iíve been absent from site for a few years experimenting with all road touring bikes while my trusty F4 750 S has been relegated to occasional weekend sport bike fix to try and keep the kms low, as a long way to go for a service for me.
Been watching the 800 triples for a while and recently changed my MT 09 tracer for an 2018 800 RR brutale as it would appear MV have sorted most of the 800 triple gremlins with this model and to be sure it pretty well pushes all my buttons it is fabulous 😁🤙

Rohan,

I have a 2018 Dragster RR, over 2500 miles now. Only issue: left rear blinker got dodgy. So I replaced with a tail tidy with LED lights. Otherwise the bike has been flawless, absolutely no issues. Tomorrow morning I am cleaning the chain and lube job with Motul products.

Where you from? Pix?

Hi mate, Iím from Townsville in Australia so The Atherton tablelands is my main play ground. Iíve got a few local twisties but itís usually a few hundred uninspiring highway kms to get to anything really good. Bought the bike down at the Gold Coast and rode it up here last week around 1600 kms of highway so experienced harsh ride and thin seat to the fullest 😁 looking forward to giving the brutale itís head on some decent corners in the near future.

Would appreciate any info on suspension adjustments to reduce some of the harshness of the standard settings, does the steering damper actually do anything ? And as a trail braking guy my rear brake seems missing in action at the moment adjustment seems a bit limited havenít really had a good look lever height way too low for my liking at present.
