So I did something really dumb... a couple of weeks ago I decided to put the Brutale away for the winter so I hopped on to go around the corner and fill up the tank one last time. On the way back home I hit a wet patch on cold tires and went down. The Motovation frame sliders did their job real well - no damage to frame or bodywork, just a bent lever and shifter. I thought I got off easy until I noticed that my wheel nut contacted and got ground down a bit. Here's a pic - http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll84/maksik7/photo2-1.jpg (sorry for the crappy iphone quality). So I'm now trying to figure out exactly what needs to be replaced here...

Looking at ProItalia's fiche http://issuu.com/desmoworks/docs/mv_agusta_brutale_oem_parts?mode=a_p&layout=http://skin.issuu.com/v/color/layout.xml&backgroundColor=FFFFFF&showFlipBtn=true (p. 28) it's obvious that the wheel nut needs to be replaced (#18) as well as the retaining clip (#19), but I can't tell what part the bent inner tube is supposed to be. Is it #7? (can't add that one to the cart for some reason) Is there any other damage you guys can see that I'm missing?

The reason I'm asking rather than just taking it to the shop is because I've heard how flaky MV's parts delivery has been lately. So rather than dropping the bike off in the spring for repairs and having to wait 2 bikeless months for parts during good riding weather, I figured I'd do my research over the winter, order the parts myself and wait for them to arrive before taking it to the shop.

That bent inner tube is the axle. Part number 7. The reason you can add that one is that MV Agusta doesn't make that axle anymore. You have to order the new one. Or buy a used one someplace. With out seeing it in a better picture, it's hard to say if it has to be replaced. You might be able to clean it up.

Hmm.. I guess I'll have to give the dealer a call and find out about this new axle. BTW do you happen to have any of these parts lying around you'd be willing to sell?

So the bearing design is flawed, but if the nut scrapes does that make it a bad design too? Come on man, put axle sliders on or except the fact that when you crash, things hit the ground.

Sorry to hear about the crash mate, glad your okay and the bike is repairable.
Carl is right, I think just the Nut and Clip needs replacing, pretty sure you can repair the axle. If Carl does not have one, there are heaps available.
