Just purchased a 2014 brutale 800 and every so often it stalls when i pull clutch in. It locks back wheel, which could not be good if you dont hear motor stall. Any suggestions? Maybe idle needs to be turned up just a touch?

Recommend having the mapping updated at the dealership nearest to you first. I had similar issues for over a year on my 2014 brutale 800

Plus throttle bodies synchronised - they have been blamed for stalling issues too.

+1 for throttle bodies. If you want to DIY its a bit of a FAFF but not impossible. You'll prob find one of the screws is completely closed. Opening it half a turn will probably stop the stalling even if it doesn't perfectly sync the throttles. There was a post on here recently about someone who did it without taking the tank off.

I had the same problem. With the new software they reduced engine braking in 2nd gear which is very noticeable. Now the problem is fixed.
There is no setting for engine idle speed, the dealer can however adjust CO trim.

Good luck

Yea, it's really easy to adjust the throttle bodies. Do it in this order: 1. Take tank off. 2. adjust screw half turn.

OK, I'm being sarcastic but if there is someone who really knows how the f*ck to adjust the throttle bodies can they point me in the right direction? The engine manuals show nothing on how to do this procedure.

You missed out taking the airbox off. That's probably where you're going wrong :stickpoke

It really isn't difficult you just have a lot to remove before you get to the adjustment screws. Remove the seat. Remove the tank. Remove the left hand air intake and filter. Remove the air box top. Remove the airbox bottom. Don't remove the inlet snorkels. Look round the front of the throttle body and find three tubes with rubber covers. Find the screws next to them. Stalling is often caused because one of them is screwed shut. Open the shut one half a turn. Stalling (possibly) solved. Perfectionists can attach a vacuum gauge and get the settings dead even which is better but solving the stalling will at least stop it throwing you off in traffic.
Put it all back together. Put any left over parts in a jam jar. :)
