  1. Hi, you called me, the genie comes out of the bottle. Gentlemen, let me set things straight. There's in fact a warm-up function which in all Marelli 15xx BINs I've come across runs for 2000 engine revolutions after start, regardless of bike manufacturer. Neither the warm-up table nor the other trim tables mentioned below are hard-wired. They can be easily changed. I suggest one should know what one is doing before making any changes, though. The factor applied to the value which eventually will determine the injector opening time is in a 2D table. The x-axis is revolu

  4. Hey! Good news! Read up on the relays. If your replacements are underrated, they may not last long. Also, look for the write-up on Relay Base Repair. They may benefit from tightening and certainly a cleaning/conditioning/sealing with something like Caig DeOxit. (There is nothing like Craig DeOxit!)

  5. Oy. Thanks for all the ink spilled here on my behalf. I swapped relays and the bike started without protest. And the weather here in New Haven is sufficiently obliging at the beginning of February (thank you ExxonMobil) that I managed to take it for a ride around town dressed in a long sleeve tee shirt. This forum has helped shepherd me through numerous problems and I'm grateful for the time and interest on everyone's part.

  6. It’s amazing how this little bikini fairing blocks the wind from the head area however a little breezing around the neck . I hope to rack up as many miles on mine as you have docc . Pretty impressive !! thanks again for your input 👍

  7. Yes docc its always a wrench to disassemble again to do the painting and finishing. My main issue at the moment is waiting for parts and materials to arrive in the post. Silly stuff like fuel hose etc. Slows the process down a lot and you tend to need everything on hand with a project like this because you're making it up as you go. So to run fuel and breather hoses you need to have things like the throttle cable routed etc because everything is so tight and messy under the tank you need to consider everything before you can finalise things. The next major hurdle is adjustable steering st

  8. It does, but it is "frame mounted" (unlike the closer fork mounted flyscreens of the Sport), and mates to the later generation plastic headlamp bucket.

  9. THAT is exactly what the car has been saying! Wheels are at the powdercoater, new tires waiting. Got vetted by an AMG/Porsche mechanic that, after ringing the secret doorbell, references, and a lengthy phone conversation, invited me by for an audition . . .

  10. I would certainly be inclined to address the historically most common issues that make a V11 act (up) like this. Sure, could be the timing sensor. It's just that has proven to be an exceedingly uncommon failure. Most common? Failed relays, especially Position #1 (and #2) on the early V11. But also Position#5. Obtain a full set of the referenced 5-pin OMRON High Current Relays and seat them in all positions with a spritz of magic on the contacts (Caig DeOxit®) Next most common, Ignition Switch. It's a little fiddly to get apart, but the soldered wiring can be inspected/repaired and th

  11. Replaced the valve cover gasket yesterday with a cheap and simple greenie item available off eBay. Test ride today indicates the oil boundary is holding. Will see what a few more miles and heat cycles do. As mentioned in another thread, most time was taken by cleaning off remnants of the old gasket. Didn't the Japanese solve the problem of engine oil leaks about fifty years ago?

  12. Thank you, footgoose. I'm the third owner of this bike, it's mine since november 2018 (with only 6 500 km on the odometer). Since I bought it, I've driven 4 000 km : simply, the best bike I ever had ! The back line of the bike matters to me, too . That's why I was looking for this Guzzi accessory. Thank you docc. About the "clamps", I understood well what they were used for, ............but I didn't have the right tool to put them on, at the moment I took the photos !

  13. All good. Fixed it for ya, buddy. Wish I had the answer for your fairing noise. Have you tried putting a hand on it in various places to see if it damps the noise?

  15. Saturday, after a long time, I managed to finish my V750SPc and finally be able to drive it. A very different line from when the V750SP left the factory, but after an accident I could not rebuild it with the same aesthetic and I made it "C" using pieces of at least 10 motorcycles. Nevada, California, Benelli 125, Harley Davidson 883, V65C and others have donated pieces for it to come as you see. I hope you like It!
