  1. I found time today and pulled the tank. The culprit: a crack in the hose! I replaced the pipe, along with the fuel filter and air filter. Took the bike for a short ride, no evident leaks.
  2. Thanks, will do! I plan to pull the tank on Sunday, so I'll find out then.
  3. I tried to ride it! Upon trying to start the damn thing apparently either the fuel pump or hose connecting the pump to filter failed--resulting in expensive ethanol free gas being pumped all over the bike and garage floor. So I've ordered a new fuel hose (hoping the pump is not cracked somehow), air filter, and fuel filter as tank-off maintenance items to take care of when I pull the tank later this week.

  5. It looks quite nice but the price is hard to swallow.
  6. Great info here everyone. Wish I would've read this before replacing my V11's old H4 with a similar unit. Will probably upgrade to one of these anyway! I just got my PPL about a month ago. That thing looks fun!
  7. I replaced my V11's headlight bulb. Very exciting stuff today!
  8. No, I'd forgotten about tank bags, having never owned one. Definitely something to look at. What tank bag are you using on your V11(s)? Good luck on that desert crossing. I've got a hydration pak for my Kriega backpack--it's literally a lifesaver.
  9. Today I spooned on a new rear Angel GT. Also replaced the wheel bearings as the brake side was feeling rough. Greased the drive shaft as well. I'm considering finally adding a luggage rack to this machine. I'd hate to diminish the considerable looks of the bike but I could use more utility. Having to wear a backpack really gets old.
  10. The V7 line are fine bikes. They have sufficient power, good maneuverability, and comfort (if you happen to fit the bike). I've ridden some well sorted V7s and they are fun bikes, but don't expect an adrenaline rush riding it. They don't have the high pulse inducing torque of the V11, however, nor the good looks, nor the glorious sound (IMO the V11 is the best sounding Guzzi). If I had to choose between the two it's no contest, really. YMMV.
  11. Great write up. Thanks, Scud!

    Decent Tune-up

    I'd rather be riding than idling! Me, too, but when riding in the city the bike unfortunately spends a lot of time twiddling its thumbs.
  13. Well said, frater LowRyter.

    Decent Tune-up

    Same here. A ~1200 idle also has the side bonus of at least being neutral to the state of the battery charge vs draining it.
