  1. We got Matt in NM and Tom in AZ.
  2. None of the in tank electronics "spark". If they do, that's badness. And yes, the pump motor is brushless. Edit - I don't think the pump is brushless in early 2000's. The brushless motors are becoming more common. I know this because my company build the controller chips used for these motors. (A good business for us!). It's the concentration of the fuel vapor that prevents explosions. From Google - "The reason electric, tank- mounted fuel pumps do not cause explosions is that the concentration of fuel vapors is too high to allow an explosive mixture. The volatile (which
  3. I like the NEP throttle lock. Info here -

    Tekno Bags

    Anyone tried to dye the Tekno bags "back to black" ?
  5. I ordered the #"175" tank ring. Still not sure if chinpad and no chinpad caps have the same bolt pattern. I'll report findings when my part gets here.
  6. Also, @KINDOY2, does the gas cap open all of the way or does it interfere with the inside of the ring? Will a %$#% California emissions gas hose fit in the gas cap opening with the ring on?
  7. Is the hole pattern for the tank ring the same between later, non-chin pad tanks and earlier chin pad versions ? There's 2 different part numbers for the caps, both US versions. Earlier - GU 0110 3920 Chin Pad Later - GU 0110 3990 No Chin Pad Asking for a 2002 Scura with CF Chin Pad
  8. The Beemerboneyard ones are metal replacements for the shitty plastic ones used on BMW bikes. The plastic ones have a nasty habit of cracking and spewing high pressure fuel all over the engine. Very common BMW problem. Had to do a rather long ride home one time hoping no one threw a cigarette butt at me.
  9. Took the Scura out for a ride around what Zonies call the Salt River Canyon (SRC) Loop. Ultimate social distancing. Just over 300 miles worth. From my home in Mesa, AZ to Globe, across the Salt River Canyon, Show Low, along the rim to Payson and back down into the desert and home. Lots of traffic in the Payson area. In these days of C19, lots of folks going camping for weekend fun. Caught a few monsoon sprinkles along the rim. I would say that the Guzzi purred like a kitten, but that big twin sound is much more like a flatulent Italian grandpa who ate too much spicy Italian sausage.
  10. There's an acceleration based aux brake light flasher that does just that. Can't remember the name right now.
  11. Arrived in Arizona. Lovely !!
  12. BTW, I prefer vacuum bleeders over power bleeders. A vacuum will expand any trapped air bubbles, making them more likely to come out. Pressure will compress the bubbles, making them more likely to trap in corners.
