Hi,

Got KM7500 on my brutale and need to order some new spare parts.
I live in West Africa and the best source should be Europe/UK given proximity.

Can some oneplease advise the best possible reliable source? Perhaps an online source that specialises in MV parts?

I need:

-Air Filter
-Fuel Filter
-Oil Filter
-Tires
-Clutch lever
-Motul chain lube
-Some useful tools (to remove air filter for example)


Also, any advice on how I can align the tires after i change them?
I dont think i can find anyone who can do that locally.

Thanks and look forward to your advice.

Michael...the tires stay in alignment. Chain adjustment may be in oder, but is not disturbed by replacing tires....if you mean balance, any shop who can balance Ducati rear wheels from single side swingarm can also balance MV rear wheel. Front is no different from any other bike.

Hi Michael,

regarding :
-oil filter
-brake pads front/rear
-clutch lever

You can also find these items in the F4 1078RR category. They are the same.

If you still can't find what you need, you can use the "contact us" page to send an inquiry.

Regarding Tyres, i think the easiest for you would be to order them via a local Pirelly or Dunlop local tyre dealer.
A local car tyre dealers should have access to Motorcycle tyres.

About the tyres, the alignment is necessary only if your bike used to ride on uneven streets, with lots of potholes, and you should even check the alignment of the wheels then, or aften many more Km's than the present situation.. :)

You must mean the wheels for damage?? The only way the tires could be out of alignment on an MV would be if the frame or swing arm is bent. On a bike with conventional 2 sided swing arm it is possible to have the wheels out of alignment by not adjusting each side evenly when adjusting chain or replacing tires.

You should check wheels for damage frequenlty if you routinely ride on extremely rough roads. Especiall the soft forged aluminum ultra lights on some MVs. They bend pretty easily.

Sure, I meant in case of damage.
On my old Benelli TnT Sport I've found the front wheel damaged even if it wasn't happened nothing strange on, apart from some rough roads on my way. Bikes with a single swing arm tend to be damaged more of course.

You're very welcome ! :drummer:
Your Brutale is probably the only one on African soil...or maybe there are few in South Africa as well.

You need anything else, you let us know.
