Just joined so thought I would say hello

Just joined and thought I would introduce my self.
I have always been an Aprilia man but saw this beast on Ebay and loved the looks of her and just had to have her. So I sold my Tuono and bought her from a guy in Dorset, rode back home in the rain to the Cotswolds and what a bike.
A few issues though.
1) She stumbles a bit on tickover. I understand that this is fueling and a powercommander will sort it out. Can anyone tell me what the part number is for the power commander is please?
2) She has been looked after very regularily by BMW. The clutch is very noisey on tick over which I understand is normal for these. As it has a full BMW history is it worth trying to get them to replace the clutch basket FOC? Is there a recal for it?
3) I have just bought a K&N filter for her. Where is the air filter?? :-)
4) I have fitted a belly pan and crash bars which look great, but I had to fettle the bellypan to get it to fit arounf the bars.

Anyway. Here she is. Big Bertha
