  1. I bought a left-over 2009 Piaggio MP-3 in 2012, NOS (LOL) ronkom
  2. Virginia Titled '05, title issued when bike is sold. I emailed owner to check the ID plate for a build date & correct his ad. ronkom
  3. A "Greenie" naked Sport showed up on the local Facebook Marketplace tonight. '05, 16947 miles, fresh tires, 5K. I worked on this bike a couple years ago, after it had been sitting. It was in excellent shape then, and, from the pictures in the ad, has been well taken care of since. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/527052838636976/?ref=category_feed&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A4f948d2f-a802-4b87-9258-089f549fb5b9 ronkom
  4. Bike is an '03 V11 Sport naked. The shift spring has been replaced w Chuck/Scud improved version. Ever since I mounted the kit to move the footpegs & shift/brake controls forward I have had trouble getting the shifting "just right". I'm into it for the 4th time. Question, can anyone describe how to set the eccentric screw w/out pulling the side panel? The instruction in the shop manual is vague & describes steps w/the side cover off. Thanks, Ron
  5. The garage started smelling of gasoline (VERY much upset wife!). Traced the problem to the fuel level sensor. Gas is leaking down the wire in the center of the sensor body, so I assume it's bad inside & needs replaced. Problem is that all the parts manuals for the '03 V11 Sport naked I have found on line show the fuel level sensor as a part of the internally mounted fuel pump . My bike does not have the fuel pump mounted inside the tank. The fuel pump is a separate unit mounted to the frame under the tank, and the fuel level sensor is also separate, mounted in the tank bottom (left side)

    HB bags wanted

    Borrowed the picture from a post on Wildguzzi, thanks to source person. Would VERY MUCH like to buy an HB mounting rack/bag set up as pictured. Have Ventura system w/large & small tail bags to swap if interested. Am working on reducing the MB of pix I took of my Sport w/the ventura set-up so I can post to the forum. Ronkom
  7. Did (does) Givi make hard bag mounting brackets to fit our Spine frames? If so, I'm in the market. Hepco Becker is second choice only because I already have two pairs of Givi bags. Thanks, Ron
  8. Thanks Rox, The answer is what I expected, a bummer, but we'll do the best we can. ron

    Tank bag

    I like the looks of the Cortech unit, I just placed an order for the Super 2.0 18L strap mount. It was exactly the same $119.99 from Revzilla, Amazon, & Motosport. Thanks for the replies, ronkom
  10. Re/2003 V11 Sport naked, deep metallic maroon tank, charcoal metallic front fender & passenger seat cover, medium grey tail piece & side covers. I got no response to my query re/the medium grey color that is messed up on this bike (don't have any idea what the PO was trying to do). Meantime I've taken the bike to my painter & he says he can paint the medium grey parts the same charcoal metallic color as the front fender & PS cover. He says he can have a match done by the computer at the paint store, but a paint code from Guzzi would be better. Anybody have one, or, know who el

    Tank bag

    To strap onto the plastic Sport tank. I did search through the archives, & got some clues, but, I think the hot set up is to just ask.....Is anyone using a strap-on 18-20 litre (large) tank bag ? Ideally it would be the style w/a "bra" that stays attached to the tank w/the bag zipping on & off as needed. I 'm a troglodyte (use paper maps) & so would like a clear plastic map case atop the bag. The local bike shop has a magnetic mount Nelson-rigg in stock that I set atop my tank & it looked pretty good. It is available in a strap-on version, but I don't think it is the "tank bra"
  12. This is copied from my response to another thread, thought it might be missed. ronkom "As I'm going to hang on to the bike, next problem is paint. Bike has maroon tank, dark grey metallic front fender & buddy seat cover, all of which are in very good shape. The problem is a kind of medium grey on the sidecovers and tail piece. A PO apparently tried some sort of coating on the medium grey paint, ruining the finish. I've tried everything I can think of to recover a finish that looks decent...no joy. So, the only option is repaint. Anyone who's had painting done recently knows how
  13. ALL right! I got my kit (Thanks again Doslemans). Installed & been out for several test rides.....YEE-HA I now have a rideable (for my arthritic old body) bike!

  14. OK, Thanks for the replies & interest. I have a kit on the way for my bike. In communicating with John about his possibly having another batch of kits made, he made an offer to sell me everything I'd need to take over the business. It is a HELL of a good offer. I thought long & hard about it, even talking to a machinist who could do that part locally, but, reality reared its ugly head. I'm 73 years old, dealing w/heart issues that don't need any added stress in my life, so I have to pass. I asked John & he said I could spread the word that he's looking for someone to buy him
  15. A member of this forum designed & had manufactured a kit to relocate the footpegs & shifter/rear brake controls forward. I have been in contact w/John, he has sold out the last kits he had in stock & doesn't want to get into having another batch made. He says he sold around 50 over a five year period, Does anyone know of one that would be for sale? Perhaps a bike was sold to a younger rider who is comfortable w/the stock semi-rearset & took the kit off the bike? Please ask around the Spine frame community & put me in contact w/the owner if one turns up Thanks Much,
