  1. The 15RC ECU is used on O2 sensor equipped V11’s. The 15RC hardware also was used on later Breva’s, Nevada’s, Griso’s & I think the early Stelvio’s - with only the installed software mapping being specific to each model. However Tomchri, just to clarify there is nothing too slow with the Magneti Marelli 15RC ECU - only the original spec LSH15 sensor slow calibration curve input wasn’t able to keep pace with what the 15RC ECU needed to produce a smooth, stable closed loop running state. The LSH24 sensor calibration curve is 10x faster - therefore the fuelling is more accurate

  2. I also have one on the lift table. Roll the bike on and it stand by itself. Then you can leisurely put the straps on. You can pull the front part off with the bike on it if you need to remove the front wheel. I use a center stand for the bikes that have one or a flat jack for the Guzzi.

  3. The 10-way is strapped to the down-frame tube under the tank but near to the steering head bearing. I think the 12-way is somewhere close, either to the 10-way or nearer to the instrument panel. I can't be too certain as my V11 was modified by Ghezzi Brian and had a new dashboard and headlights but looking on the parts list diagram, there seem to be two large connectors (the 10 and presumably the 12) in similar positions which look like being near the steering head bearing Your further diagnostic tests are very interesting particularly the fact that the parking and direction indicators

  4. John....if you had a high quality wheel chock, you could take all of the pressure off the side stand while keeping it vertical and Bev could be drinking a cool one instead of holding the bike for you! I always park the Scura in the chock just as a safety precaution rather than leaving it on the side stand.

  5. No, I have a lathe but I'm VERY ordinary on it. Chucks the house machinist:) Aircraft engineer was my field. Researching parts is where the time goes mainly and it's often many hours involved. Fortunately I also know some very smart and experienced people. My friend told me that the bushes were standard DU steel backed, bronze coated with an additional metal-polymer coating available at any bearing shop. This of course after I'd spent hours in research:) Interestingly the old bushes after removal had a part number on the back and some sort of company logo which I couldn't identify even with a

  6. Hi Phil, thanks, a very lucid and detailed explanation. I re-worked the throttle bodies of my Jackal and V11 some years ago, some additional comments based thereupon. This is important, the butterfly valves have edges ground at an angle to fit to the throttle bodies when closed. The original screws block a substantial amount of the cross section, the two pictures (before/after) show the difference. Using flat-headed screws frees up some of the cross section, especially if the screw is selected (or made to fit) to the diameter of the shaft. For those willing to go f

  7. About a week out and I see I started the Sport's shakedown three months ago and have ridden it over 2700 miles. About as ready as it can possibly be and properly separated from the Waddington Effect (unwanted outcomes from my messing with it ). I told a buddy that if I didn't saddle up and head out next week she would probably sprout a cortex and leave without me! SpineRaiders are looking to number 10-14 for this S'xteenth South'n. Y'all ride well, ya hear?

  8. I think all the riding you do has kept it off the side stand just as much.

  9. Makes me wonder if keeping my Sport on the lift in the chock all the time has helped spare my sidestand switch . . .

  10. I have the Condor version, two of them, and the Harbor Freight version bolted to the lift table. Invaluable for stationary work and for transport. This thing will vigorously hold a bike vertical without straps, though I do use 2 straps in the trailer. When I pulled my engine, the front tire rested in it, with 2 ratchet straps (in the rafters) lifting the rear.

  12. My 03 Rosso Corsa has a 02 sensor, not connected since there is a 15M ECU onboard,, with great mapping. She runs very good, sometimes somedays, she has to open her mouth a little bit, tiny sneeze, hick, nothing serious. Since I have a 15RC Cali ECU on the shelf, out of curiosity I will install a new Bosch 02 sensor and the 15RC, and see what happens ? Cheers tom.

  13. Those Baxley sport chocks are nice. I have one, but wouldn't mind having 1 (or 2) more. It was super-handy back when I used to do track days, both for loading the bike on the (rental) trailer, and for use in the paddock (because my sidestand would be removed due to dragging on the track). And if you use them to keep the bike upright, you may find you have more room in the garage than you used to __Jason

  14. I would think it can be done. But I am not sure how hard it will be. Without additional mods to address seating position I am not sure it is worth the effort. Todd at GuzziTech is very fond of doing stuff like that to Guzzi's like that. To me it is lipstick on a pig, as you say. I would just enjoy that for what it is, a surprisingly capable cruiser. And I am not looking at your butt.

  15. "The 15RC ECU is used on O2 sensor equipped V11’s." So, even if not O2 sensor equipped, if a 15M/non-O2 sensor bike had aftermarket exhaust with sensor bung, and added the dongle (ran the wiring to a sensor, and plugged into the bung), the RC should work? Partly curiosity, and partly because i'll be playing with ECU and map options on the "other" V11 in the shop this winter (as mentioned in our PM)

  17. No.. they are pretty busy. I’m still waiting on the front splitter for my Benz. This weekend I’m sending a bunch of stuff to them, I’ll ask.

  18. I have a 15M.C3 labeled for a Cali S in my parts bin. It came to me installed on a great running '03 Rosso Corsa with Mistral crossover and MG Ti cans. The bike previously owned by a former forum member. So I have to assume it was re worked somehow..... Or interchangeable?

  20. I agree with the comments of previous contributors but, to me, the most revealing and interesting bit of information that would seem to help locate the problem is the rather odd phenomenon that the engine does shut down when you pull in the clutch and press the start button. This action energises the starter relay which, apart from putting voltage on the starter motor contactor, it turns off the voltage powering the Lights Relay, thus de-energising the lights, including brake lights, headlights etc while starting. This is fed from Fuse F5, so I would anticipate that pulling out fuse F5 would

  21. I don,t have any good pictures of My R.Corsa with the DyMag Magnesium wheels on her at the moment but this is one of her from a couple years ago when she was a little dusty ..still looks the same except cleaner and with the oem rear fender back on now.
