  1. Doc posted a picture and a tip on how to release the fuse block https://www.v11lemans.com/forums/index.php?/topic/21830-persistent-left-cylinder-misfire/page/7/#elControls_261648_menu
  2. Have you looked here: MG Colour Codes (mgcn.nl) or Moto Guzzi tuning, codes, infos & tips - guzzifan.com - the site for Moto Guzzi fans Stickers are available here: Sticker and Decal sets - Stein-Dinse Online-Shop Emblems, décor, stickers (hmb-guzzi.de) MOTO GUZZI - New parts - Stickers & Badges - Page 1 - TLM Nijmegen
  3. I looked at Cash1000's stand, and thought I could make one like it, but red, and with wheels. It has plastic clevises to avoid marking the pork-chops.
  4. Penrite have some useful comments about oil. Note the paragraph about the change of additive requirements since the introduction of unleaded fuel. https://penriteoil.com.au/knowledge-centre/Oil Composition and Additives/44/zinc/396
  5. You could make one from a V11 Hub GU01335230. It would involve some cutting and machining, but the MGS01 uses the V11 bevel box.

    Electrically it would be happy without the sensor, but you would need a way to stop fuel falling onto your left foot.

    Well bugger, that looks bad. I have wiring, fuel resistant sealant, and thermistors, so might be able to fix it.
  8. Some previous talk about this https://www.v11lemans.com/forums/index.php?/topic/20091-no-neutral-after-twin-plate-conversion/#elControls_224256_menu
  9. How bad is the drag? Is the bike unrideable, or just tricky to get going? I wonder if things will get better as the new plate wears a little, and beds into the flywheel.
  10. True, but as I see it, the electrical part of the switch is attached to the key part with 2 screws. If @billgreenman1 only wants the electrical part, it might be a good option. Oh wait, I see a crack in the black plastic housing. It might not be a good idea.
  11. Ebay.it has several. https://www.ebay.com/itm/133744293230?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20190917065201%26meid%3D62b6112cb1ae48a2a903f0e4f36352f2%26pid%3D100935%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D254658852092%26itm%3D133744293230%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2332490%26algv%3DSimplAMLv9PairwiseUnbiasedWebCpr08MlcGreedyV3&_trksid=p2332490.c100935.m2460&amdata=cksum%3A13374429323062b6112cb1ae48a2a903f0e4f36352f2|enc%3AAQAGAAABAOEFQvf1KhbQVqdCaWUvbzqFgkIUPItO8rc9Q4S4fSSaP6eS39GUCAZDjXuZsSPiVKNMk3whVSymt4VqTBU0ujHOiK6xxEj9OtrOFteEutd%2BHjMT03hss0kqoxAUjrkL251e9%2Fk4iR9oSBXsOqICNEHkSW4wjQFDhUh0Wpa4BLVBieThR%2B3kxOqXljQB4IPYsl12rp5fGNvnYy5pASSEopXJUEnsepWBh9Cc2y7uuixiV3nmZp07AUctKspxo8vFC3pY6RqmEBRdQPP5cTLssXrzE9%2BY%2BliQfUy0bXNruKcG3UBi2Kqx8KyeM0gyPNYQ2qd1vRkN%2Fo55If880TvB0uU%3D|ampid%3APL_CLK|clp%3A2332490 https://www.ebay.com/itm/254658852092?hash=item3b4ad9b4fc:g:C~cAAOSwP35fFGxf
  12. I have a LiFePO4 type Shorai battery in my bike. For cold starting, they say: "If starting at 5°C, headlights on for 30 seconds will help wake the battery and increase cranking performance. If at -17°C, leave the lights on for 4~5 minutes before cranking. The result will be a better first crank, and longer battery life. If the engine fails to start on first crank, that first crank has warmed the battery, and the second attempt will be much stronger." So Phil makes a good point. The Shorai LFX21L6-BS12 cranks my V11 well.
  13. While we are looking at the gearbox selector mechanism, here is a reminder of some collected wisdom about the selector pawl arm and its troublesome spring.
  14. And here is a picture of the selector cam wheels set to neutral. Note that the yellow marks align when in first gear.
  15. Here is what my gears looked like when in neutral. I hope this helps.
  16. Is that the Verner radial engine? How about a picture of it?
  17. Bjor, did you find out what the problem was yet on your bike yet?
  18. Huh. I was thinking that I should replace mine by a nyloc nut, or a pair of plain nuts. I only touch it when checking the throttle bodies are synchronized. It's not something I would adjust while riding, so it doesn't need to be so big.
  19. How old are the tires n battery, and how full is the tank?

    Hey, I know where that is. Nice pic.
  21. Does anyone have a damaged fuel tank who can bear to part with the fittings on it? I have a spare tank with a different color, and hope to equip it with the parts needed so I can swap tanks easily. That is the reg, low level, and tap, with bases, and the nipples for the vent & cap drain. Edit: early tank with external pump. Thanks Docc.
  22. Pump and filter inside the tank is a tidy installation, better to keep it that way in my opinion. Also look for split or leaking hoses inside the tank. Immersed fuel hoses are made of different material than normal fuel hoses, which will degrade inside a tank. This is something to look for if a previous owner changed things.
  23. I suppose that you don't have a V11 because @Tomchri owns most of the V11s in Norway.
