  2. Well my 2004 V11 LeMans arrived today. So I met the shipper, brought her home, then tried to figure out how to remove the damn seat! Eventually, with the help of the Internet and multiple searches, I located the keyed seat release on her throttle side. :-0 Rigged up the battery tender and hope to fire her up tomorrow.

  3. And the prize goes to Shaun! Well done that man! Got the bike out today and had the screech back again. I then noticed that the lights were dimming as soon as I touched the clutch lever along with the screech.... WTF I thought and then saw the poxy starter button was stuck in. The clutch lever switch was engaging the starter! Came back on here to post the update and saw your post!

  4. Not so much “V11” as it’s gear...but I’ve always wanted a pair of some bad ass Daytona boots. That now can be scratched off the moto bucket list.... Updates forthcoming...just know I’ve been swamped with work/personal health issues blah blah blah... Happy New Year to everyone!

  6. It's been 5 years since my Corso passed away. I miss having a dog. I picked her up a couple weeks ago, she's a 2 month old "Blue" Cane Corso. My God, I got a refresher course on what Hell Raiser's little puppy's can be :/

  8. Snuck out for a short ride this afternoon. It’s been raining for a while so the sun was a nice change. This store closed a while ago but it use to be a nice stop along the way to get some snacks and ethanol-free fuel.

  15. Bravo, man! Thanks for the vid! Home from a delightful 100 mile loop through the hills and hollers. Found this tasty 8% Einstök Winter Ale. Makes me think of Tomchri: "IPA time! "

  16. Thanks, bud! Haven't ridden anything in a month. Perfect riding gift-of-an-afternoon before the rains ring out the year. If you want to feel like your V11 is a big, powerful motorcycle: don't ride for a month, then take your 30hp Honda single out first. Rolling out on the V11 Sport: "Bad To The Bone! "

  17. That is a kind and thoughtful offer Paul. I once was a member of a now defunct local vintage moto forum in which one thoughtful member started a "pay it forward" thread where members could give away items that were say, not of particularly great value, but too good to throw away. In the vintage scene all sorts of bits and pieces were utilized for all sorts of applications. The only requirement to claim the free item was to, shortly thereafter, continue to "pay it forward" and offer up something else. Value was not relevant. Cool idea. I took advantage of the first offer, a book of the his

  21. To return the liquid portion of the crankcase ventilation back to the sump. Instead of into an old Castrol® fork oil can or Coors® can. The V11 crankcase ventilates from a fitting (#14, first diagram) on the rear, upper right of the block inside the clutch housing, through the nefarious, shaped flexible hose (#18 in the first diagram) under the spine frame that connects to the bottom of the spine just behind the headstock. From there, the vapor portion is extracted (more or less) from the banjo fitting on top of the spine at the headstock into the airbox (#16/17 in the second di

  22. Shiny one would be fine too but it wouldn't stay that way long. wow thats twice in a row now, but with different methods . If I can do it again tomorrow 80 cx , I will pass on my magic secrets. Think go to view on pic file, then go to display and do content instead of icons, then right click, click on edit, and hey presto it says resize. Then you do that and it disappears off into the ether, and you spend ten minutes finding where its gone.

  23. When you have a moment Andy, could you please take a more clear close-up photo? It's difficult to see where the zerk is. Thanks. As soon as I can....she is in the back of the garage...hard to get at. I guess I will start posting a disclaimer on my "hacks". I am not responsible for what happens to you. Yes... I put another access point in the u-joint cover...and yes I know what the u-joint cover is for. oh and yes I accept responsibility for my actions. I hope it enables you to grease the u-joint and go 130,000 miles just like me.

  24. And the right tank, have a backup tank on there now. And the V11 replacement, I finally got back into riding some last year, Love the Quota, just had to play with the timing some to get it running well below 4k rpm.

  25. Thee are four different basic platforms and frames in the CARC series. Griso Stelvio Norge/Breva/Sport Bellagio. While the swingarm, shock linkage and final drives are all identical the frames are all quite different.

  28. Hmmmmm . Let's go over this "clearly " mentioned STUFF . You think your wife doesn't know you purchased a bike ! Every night you go to sleep , she gives you the Vulcan mind probe and finds out every thought , act and muse you have done that day . She isn't going to bring it up , simply for the fact she "can and will use it against you" when the time comes ! You cannot ration or reason ANY discussion about this motorcycle . The day will come you will simply say "oh , I thought I told you?" ..... Then_____________________ buy her a pair of Jimmy Choo high heels and a pricey purse .

  29. Z Custom Leathers made me an amazing racing jacket and pants for me almost twenty years ago to custom match my Sport. For a while there, they had seemed to have shrunk . Still, I only use them for "ceremonial" rides, and not usually the racing pants as they are not made to carry much (nothing) in the pockets. And my pocketses serve more like a day-pack . . . http://www.zcustom.com/

  34. The squarer ones like Phil's were used on the Griso and Sport 1200. They use a lead cover and a protective 'Puck' on the two outer, middle rocker cover bolts. The more round rocker covers were used on Bellagio, Breva, Norge and 'Breva Sport 1200' which is an odd parts-bin special. These use a single one piece lead cover.

  37. I read his book, "Ghost Rider". It was a melancholy autobiographical story of grief, Canadian winters, drums, GS Beemers and scotch. And lots of nice people and travel. It was a great book. I tried to read his next book but couldn't get into it.

  38. I see I have also taken some liberties with @Admin Jaap's pictorial post, adding some commentary and trying to refine the transitions. I hope this is okay. I don't want to rub our Chief Whip the wrong way! It occurs to me to mention that, although not pictured, there were V11 "Sport" or "Naked" produced through the end of the range with fork mounted headlamp/instruments just like the early Sport. For the differences in the frames and tanks also see:

  39. I want to thank @jrt for originating this thread. It has been a solid reference over all this time. I've seen other web pages attempting to chronicle the V11 series, but none have the quality and accuracy devoted to this one.

  40. OK, be honest, who gave up on me and this Bike? Not done yet, made a lot a progress a few years ago, but got distracted. I will be back on it in a month or two as soon as I get my workshop cleaned out and organized so I can get her in it and finish it. All new paint, powder coated the frame, forks, swing-arm, etc. Rebuilt the engine (new piston and liners, rebuilt heads) did some transmission work, new wiring, a few custom touches here and there. A few issues I need to work out, rear wheel is dragging on something, I put new bearings in and shimmed them, I think I just need to
