  1. Guzzis are like that famous country song refrain: Love me or hate me, but please don't ignore me!
  2. That's a nice fun loop, always enjoyed stopping in Tortilla flat and then heading for Roosevelt lake...quite scenic! Nice to see the Scura getting exercised properly!
  3. That looks really great...the rear tail piece and skirt are wicked.
  4. and Pasta Puttanesca and Pistacchios! So that would be 7 P's!
  5. JB, I'm interested in the tail bag...can Paypal tonight if that works - package deal? Thanks, Paul
  6. I'm sure next year will be well attended! Let's hope for safer times by then!
  7. Yup..sorry about that...bleary eyed after a long week of work. Corrected now...thanks for the catch!
  8. 283 is for sale...listed on Wildguzzi, looks in great shape. Still enjoying my 287...no room for another one in the garage!
  9. I got my replacement knob from MG, but having a tough time getting it threaded on again...seems like the end onto which it has to be screwed is "drooping" a bit inside the case. Have to come up with an ingenious way of lining it up to the hole to get the new one screwed on.
  10. Reposting from my post above...these are the wires I ended up putting on since they had the proper coil ends already installed. Simple cut of wire, rotate on the 90 degree end cap and you're ready to rock and roll. http://www.harpermoto.com/twin-coil-spark-plug-wire-set-t-and-newer.html

    Scura clutch

    No chance of that Peter! Your advice and guidance has aided many a Guzzi rider...deeply grateful for the help over the years. i had a visit with Mike at MPH today to inquire about getting some Norge maintenance done that I am not setup to do at home (swing arm bearing greasing and alternator belt replacement), ..and got some further clarity on what had been done to the Scura clutch, and to take advantage of the lovely weather to get a nice 150 mile ride in today... Indeed it was the lightened Cali single plate steel clutch that Mike put into my Scura, but it also involved getting the friction plate from the Cali as well, and the only other modification Mike remembers doing was putting a small ball bearing in the clutch slave cylinder, as he mentioned that without that the clutch would grab even with the clutch lever pulled all the way in. Odd solution, but seems to work...As I've mentioned above, the clutch grabs immediately upon releasing the lever, so there's no play at all like in most clutches, but it works just beautifully. I guess this is one alternative for folks to pursue if you can find that rather elusive combination of flywheel/friction plate and are patient enough to do the ball bearing trick as well, or perhaps there's another alternative available. If folks have other more technical questions, let me know as I'll be down there again on Friday to drop off the Norge...
  12. Sorry my mistake, I read it wrong...thought the list in MIscellany were all separate items in addition to the bike, no need to be a pisser about it but I'll chalk that up to a misinterpretation. Good luck with the sale.
  13. If you are inclined to price it out, I'd be interested in the Odyssey battery, the gloves and bandana. Do you know what size gloves they are by the way? Thanks! Stunning bike...that color tank is just beautiful, would be fun just to have to swap it from time to time on my Scura for a change of color every so often.
  14. Thanks Marty..very kind of you. Sending PM.
  15. Well...the red NGK's didn't come with the metal end that gets inserted into the coil, so I had to buy some after market ones by guessing looking at my originals. Unfortunately the ones I bought were the wrong size and I could not get them to insert...in the meantime, the set from Harpers had arrived and they came already prepped with the coil end on the wires, and all I had to do was attach the plug end.
