Just curious if anyone with a Brutale 800 has noticed an increase or fair amount of valve-train noise? I noticed it when I first got the bike but sometimes I wasn't sure what I was hearing, a rattle, injector pulses, etc. Though lately it seems to be slightly more apparent, mostly about 4000-5000rpm. Above that and either the exhaust gets louder and I can't hear it or the noise takes on a less apparent frequency. Hopefully get the bike to the dealer here soon for the Computer update and ask them about it. The bike has about 1500 miles on it and it might be normal for this version of the triple but wanted to ask around. Thanks!

MV engines are not known for quiet running.....indeed, a lot of mechanical sounds are normal. Valves tend to get tight and not loose.
I'm sure your dealer tech can ascertain if normal or not.
