  1. Hi Chuck, I will take 2 anyway if possible, as I am planning to buy a V11 Lemans in near future as well as keeping my Ballabio. Thanks Phillip
  2. I just open the picture in windows 10, use the Resize feature shown in the menu on the right top ( where you see … which says ""show more"" when you put the cursor over it) then the drop down menu has Resize in it. Choose the smallest size (.25Mp ) when the picture is open and save it to a new name. Then upload to this site.
  3. The pipes are Giannelli slip on cans, apparently installed at new. I have the unused original cans in boxes. The rest of the pipes are stock. Other than the cans, everything else original other than the spring in the transmission shifter that breaks, and a power commander and removal of the smog canister. I have the spring from Scud, which has worked great after 3 broken ones from Guzzi and others.
  4. Yes, it seems was done at factory with the triple tree without holes for standard Ballabio bars. Also the spacer plate looks like factory, including the bolts used prior to me adding the GPS mount.
  5. Figured it out. Here are pictures. You will notice my GPS mount on top of the instrument spacer plate.
  6. I took some pictures with my blackberry but they will not load as too large file. I can send to you if you like. (pics of my 2004 Ballabio with clip ons (as it came I think)). You will see that the need to move the instruments forward was necessary for the bars to be able to turn to full lock.
  7. Hi Chuck. I would also like a Shift Lever Arm Extender. I will email you with my details. Thanks very much for all your work on this. Look forward to using it.
  8. The one other thing that seems maybe different. The gauges are moved forward by a plate compared to other V11's I have seen. It moves the gauges about a couple inches forward into the fairing. It looks like a factory plate with the four bolts holding the gauges to the plate and four more bolts holding plate to the original holes to mount the gauges. I will take a picture and load it tomorrow.
  9. Hi Guys I have a 2004 V11 Sport Ballabio, Red. ZGUKTC0274M111224. Mine seems to be a little different in that rather than the straight handlebars it has clip-ons and the top triple tree does not have the holes to mount the straight bars. Looking in the MG parts catalog it should have the handlebars and mounts for bars in the triple tree. All other Ballabios I have seen have the bars rather than clip-ons. Other than that everything else is per the MG pars catalog. Has anyone seen this before. It seems it may have the lemans top triple tree and bar set up? I have had almost since new and believe this is as delivered by MG. For long distance rides I was thinking I would prefer the bars to be about two inches higher and one inch aft. I am about 6 '0 tall and find it a little crampled, but still love it and put lots of miles on it in the summer.
  10. Hello Scud I just sent paypal for another 2 springs. The one from the original batch is still working great in by 04 v11 Ballabio with about 4500 miles on it. These ones will be for a Lemans I want to buy and a spare for it. Thanks again for all your work.
  11. I have a 2004 V11 Sport Ballabio. It had the correct size of boss on the shifter since new. It broke the spring about every 4,000 miles. I tried stock spring, better spring that would not break, but they still did. I was about to do the coil spring mod when Chuck and Scud came up with the fix with the spring with thinner spring steel and two wraps in the coil. I installed about a year and 4000 miles ago and has worked perfectly since. It is the best solution. contact Chuck / Scud about if they are making more or have available
  12. Hello Chuck and Scud, I now have about one year about 4,000 miles on the new spring you provided. Everything continues to work great. If you do another run, I would buy a couple more for the day when I also buy a v11 Lemans in addition to my 2004 V11 Sport Ballabio. Thanks for all your work on this issue. Phil
