  1. I have one... they are pretty neat. @docccan tell us about them too!
  2. That just happened to me last week. Dude was backing into a parking spot next to me and hit my truck. Thankfully it was right on the bumper that another goofball hit last summer. We talked and a few minutes later he handed me $450. About half what a blind mount Texas bumper goes for and fair imo
  3. Oh and as far a riding safely... in my 20+ years of driving professionally I can say that if it’s your time, it’s your time. I’ve seen things happen out here I wish I didn’t. Safe drivers, drunk drivers, criminals you name it. I have no fear when I ride. If my ticked gets punched... that’s it. See y’all on the other side....
  4. Can’t you sue them in small claims and avoid the insurance altogether? Michigan is a “no fault” State I’m not sure how it is in your neck of the woods. I know I wouldn’t want my title messed with.
  5. Those kinds of situations happen often. I see plenty of examples of people making some very bad decisions. Because we weren’t there to see exactly what happened, I don’t think it’s fair to judge. Skill levels, years of experience, road conditions are just a few variables at work. I used to street race my Ducati and more often then not, someone would dump their bike. I watched a chick on a CBR run straight into the woods. Never even tried making the turn. Pilots do it too. Target fixation I think? Instead of looking at where you want to be, they look right where they are. If it w
  6. Air boxes were designed to meet noise levels. Most motorcycles up until the government stepped in, used open intakes without filters or “rock catchers” screens. Induction noise was the reason. Atmospheric pressure without the aid of turbo and or supercharging will not be a significant factor with or without a box. Ram air style ducts and what have you work at speeds on race tracks. The average street rider wouldn’t notice anything. Some people swear by them, others don’t....
  7. I don't remember where I read it, Dr. John was very particular about his name being used. He did have plans to do more with Guzzi IIRC DeTomaso was in failing health and they pretty much shut down the racing program. The Daytona is really a very special part of Guzzi history. These are, IMO much more then just a name slapped on the side. I want one to park in my House........
  8. Finally replaced that damaged valve cover and installed the new guards. Looks much better....

    Scura build

    My Forks are going to Holland! Isn't that viert? The big upgrade is now in effect. They use the Forks as a template to build the new ones. The internals will be Mupo CSP30-R‘s This old girl is going to have the best front end currently available to the general public! Massive front end diet planned with these Forks, Magnesium Triple Clamps, Sicom Rotors and OZ Racing Wheel.
  10. I was thinking between the lining and carbon, that tank shouldn’t move. I also bought a roll of Teknofibra 4mm flexible thermal barrier to line the underside since you can’t get the factory stuff anymore. Besides this is much better and probably overkill but it’s okay. I don’t care. I try to stick with top tier fuels (Shell V Power) and run a mix of that and 110 race fuel.
  11. No, that's after. And this is a completed pic: I have all the parts I need to install it now, so that'll be the next project.
  12. I had my "new" internal pump tank professionally lined before i had it wrapped in carbon fiber. It wasn't the cheapest option: This is what it looks like inside:
  13. ECM connection? I’d pull it and spray it with contact cleaner. Check the ground going to it also. My Centauro ran like crap backfiring and all that business when I got her home. I pulled the connections to everything I could reasonably get at. Cleaned everything up and dumped about 3 gallons of 110 In it. Ran it like it like it insulted my momma... she purrs like a angry kitten now.
  14. Your bike has the external pump. So even if you need to change the fuel filter, it isn’t a terrible job. Drain out the fuel, try a bottle of Heet. That’s a drying agent. Fill it with the best they got. Then give her a good ‘Ol Fashioned Italian Tune Up!! BTW: did you check the side stand switch?
