  1. New motor arrived today! This puppy is pretty darn clean and it has the clutch on it thankfully. I feel like I should remove it to inspect and do all the other additional mods. I have a roper plate order put in so need to order up my oil pan gaskets but things are moving! Now, to finish the other two motors I need to rebuild as well Plus the old guzzi core.

  2. On the 18th of April we got the good news in the German Guzzi forum that Paul recovered (after 16 days in coma).

  3. We'd all do without mirrors if we could. too bad we need to see back there. many of the subtle ones are useless, and many vibrate. the stocker's are awful but work. someone invent a curved, pan rear view heads up display with perfect lighting please.

  4. Have an ImgZeit account? Excellent image hosting, being very intuitive and easily managed. About $1 US per month. And none of this image blocking nonsense that we see with the "biggies"

  8. Thanks mate, yeah I am planning on taking care of those 8 deals above. I really reading this on another thread! I'll most likely hold off on opening the clutch unless I can access a special too.

  9. I did warn you. I've never seen a SS fastener on a set of Weber throttle bodies. Lots of red loctite though. Ciao

  10. The clutch would not worry me at all as long as there is no sign of oil, as gstallons mentioned, and no signs of friction disc material having sloughed off. So unlikely for you. I would, though, address the (eight!) common leak points on the back of the engine and front of the gearbox while it is so accessible . . .

  11. MMMM , I hope oil is not near this clutch . If your bike sat a year or so you would crank the bike and ride it . Correct ? You are doing basically the same with this but on a different bike . T or F ?

  12. You should do the clutch ONLY if you have the tools and do it properly . As in no 3/8" impact on things . Install a new breather hose from MG cycles ( or anywhere but Harper's . Check prices ) or anything else you see that doesn't look good . Save everything . Good luck and get every bolt tight !

  17. I ran a pair for years on my bike. They also have a practical benefit as well in that they quieten down the valve noise a noticeable amount. Downside......a little extra weight. Ciao

  18. A well written obituary printed in The New York Times; It describes a body pummeled in numerous crashes over the course of his career and the spirit and humility and sense of humor he embodied. The concluding paragraphs: Moss, the ultimate pro, once observed that there are no professionals at dying — although he had practiced. He was sure he was “a goner” after his steering column snapped at over 160 m.p.h. in a race in Monza, Italy, in 1958. As he staggered away from the wreckage, he thought, “Well, if this is hell, it’s not very hot, or if it’s he

  22. Personally I think Hondas are the quality yardstick for mass produced motorcycles and have been for many years. I was killing some time at a shopping centre about 4 or 5 years ago and was looking at a CBR1000RR parked there. The one with the Ohlins suspension and was impressed with its build quality. It was always Honda then Yamaha then Suzuki and Kawasaki quality wise for me. I did own an RC30 for a while in the mid to late 80's and that thing was on another planet compared to my 1000 Hailwood replica that I also owned at the time. More bar ends alas Ciao

  23. And, here, I thought my wee CRG quite sweet. More like *tassles* on Cindy Crawford. Sure, "objects are (waaay) closer than they appear", but you can still tell it's a cop car when the blue lights come on!
