  1. Just wanted to send out a big thank you to all the folks on this forum and the V11 community as a whole. I finally had the time to give my Café Sport its first thorough "Decent Tune-up". I was amazed at the difference. It was running well enough before so I never thought to change anything. The instructions, parts, tools, software and advice posted on this forum were such a huge help. I'm glad I took the time to get my bike running even better than ever, and I appreciate the efforts of all who have contributed to this community over the years. A few other things I have done sin

  3. Hey guys, sorry it has been I while since I have posted any updates on my bike. I've slowly been building up a to-do list for sorting it out that might have just recently gone beyond my abilities. Too many fun bikes in the garage have made me choose riding over wrenching during my free time. I noticed a slow oil leak that has increased a bit lately. I dismantled the exhaust system to get a closer look. It's dripping directly onto the crossover. The stock crossover that I replaced when the bike first arrived, suspiciously had burnt oil on top of it. At the time I didn't think much o
  4. I might be interested in the Centauro, but at $6500 not $7500. My problem is also lack of garage space, but if the price is right I could always hide it behind my couch. Post it here when he's ready to sell. I'm sure it will drum up some interest.
  5. OEM headers and crossover. I took these off of my Cafe Sport when I installed a new exhaust system. The bike only had about 3,500 miles on it when removed last year. They are in solid shape and did not seem to have any leaks when removed. Only minor surface corrosion and some oil and road grime. Nothing a little elbow grease couldn't clean up. Price: Free - just pay for shipping. Donating to the V11 community. I only ask that the recipient actually has a need for them and will not be hoarding them away or profiting.
  6. For Sale: Harpers aftermarket shift lever. I accidentally ordered two of these a while ago without realizing it. I have one installed on my Cafe Sport and it works great. Price: $75 + shipping
  7. ***SOLD*** For sale: one set of Knight Design 1 inch lowered footpegs. Used only a couple of times. Originally purchased because I was looking for pegs with better grip than the stock set. Selling because I preferred the position of the original pegs. Price: $50 + shipping
  8. I'm in for one too please.
  9. Here is a nice looking Cafe Sport in the Los Angeles area that I noticed on CycleTrader this morning. At that price it could be a good deal for someone, especially considering all the GuzziTech upgrades the current owner has on it. http://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2004-Moto-Guzzi-SPORT-V11-120669366
  10. I just installed mine today and went for a quick test ride. I definitely noticed a difference in shifting. It had a much better feel to it. Nice accurate shifts that I could feel solidly clicking into gear. Before the mod, shifting felt a little soft and vague. I would hit a fair amount of false neutrals if I didn't hit the shift lever just right. This extender mod plus the Harper shift lever really seemed to perfect the shifting on my bike. Grazie mille Chuck!
  11. This is just what I needed. Count me in!
  12. Uploading a video to YouTube and posting the link here wouldn't be much of a problem. Setting up a good recording is the tough part. I think we've all seen those, less than spectacular, exhaust demo clips recorded on phones. Then on the other side, I doubt most people's computer speakers would do it justice. I may get around to it someday though. I'm up for a little V11 SoCal gathering. Just don't make me ride through LA traffic! I will be sure to add a few more in the near future. As far as I know, these are the stock wheels. This is a Cafe Sport
  13. I got everything installed and took it up to Idyllwild for a test ride today. Take a look. In terms of performance I did not notice too much difference. It does rev a little smoother. I think I still need to adjust the idle though. It stalled when coming to a full stop a couple times. The main thing I noticed was the difference in sound. I am extremely picky when it comes to exhaust notes. I can honestly say this it the most beautiful sounding exhaust of any vehicle I have ever heard. Needless to say I am very happy with the results.
  14. The exhaust parts came back from Jet-Hot today. Looks like I've got a fun project for the weekend. Here is a before and soon to be after side by side comparison.
  15. While waiting for the exhaust parts to return I added a set of these this weekend. http://www.knightdesignllc.com/Products/Motorcycle/Moto-Guzzi/V11-Cafe/Moto-Guzzi-V11-Cafe-1-Front-Foot-Pegs.html I was surprised by how much a mere 1in drop changes your leg position. Very comfortable. These are much larger than the stock pegs and add more room for your feet. The only problem I have with the design, as you can see in the picture, they force your feet further apart. I have to point my toes inward to shift or brake. Especially difficult if you are wearing large boots. I had a f
