Hi Guys:

Just reaching out after my first incredible day on my '06 Brutale 910S. I hit the highway, some back roads. The bike looks amazing and the rush it provides is unmatchable.

Waiting a few days before I head up Angeles Crest to the Ranch. Ok. Maybe a day.

Well, if you have any MV newbie advice, please, share it.

And, if you'd like to ride with someone who prefers the twisties to pure speed, PM me. Not that I have anything against speed, I'm just not a hooligan.

I'll post a couple photos of my new bike, if this site let's me -- there are a couple quirks.

-- Tom

Thanks. I know there are better places to post this question, but any quick suggestions on how to reduce the "on/off" nature of the throttle? It's my only issue with the bike. Period.

Tom,

Congrats and enjoy. I too am MV newbie and have enjoyed every mile.

I find that running my bike in normal mode NOT sport mode really takes the edge off the abruptness.

Mr. Baron:

I don't think I have two modes, or am I woefully misinformed. It's an '06 910S.

I think that's a newer invention.

No you dont have different modes, try taking the slack out of the throttle cables. As a test turn the "choke" on whilst riding it should take the freeplay out of the throttle and possibly raise the idle a bit.It`s not actually a choke as such and only operates as a crude "fast idle".

Thanks, CUS. I'll try the cables and the choke. And, I'll post these Newbie questions elsewhere next time. (just tryin' to fit in, and it's my only "issue.")

Thanks for the heads-up, Eddy. My apologies to Noel, in advance. Hopefully, I'll get one pass (no pun intended). I've already dug into much of the material. Gotta say, at this point anyway, can't find a real concensus. I have learned, though, that the twitchy throttle will make me a better rider. That's a good side effect. But all that's for another thread, I know!

It's 12:12 pacific time. I'm officially into Day 2 of MV ownership.

By the way, I live in Los Angeles, but I spent a year at the Uni of New South Wales, and lived in Randwick. I made it to Brisbane during my travels, small world.

Welcome to the MV Brutale family !

Shame you didn't let me know sooner, as I live in Randwick, and a few of us ride on the weekends....

Yes, Brisbane is a 'small world' :stickpoke:naughty::):):)

Thanks. I lived in Australia 20 years ago, literally.
I learned how to ride a motorcycle 18 months ago.
And I can't run THAT fast. . .

Noel is in SCal as well, lists his cell phone here, and is a nice guy. He just barks a lot. He's on his way to the Bubbalicious just about now.

Welcome

Congrats! Looks just like mine haha, I had the same problem with the on/off throttle and taking one of the springs out of the outside throttle cable really helped

Thanks for the tip. If I were mechanically inclined, I'd know what the heck you mean. Unfortunately, I'll have to pass your post on to one of the mechanics at Pro Italia.
I've only been riding 18 months or so. I realize that you have to learn this stuff to be a well-rounded rider. I just like the riding part so much, I leave the maintenance part to others.
