  2. Hard rain in Norway all this weekend, how about Sweden? Have you installed the new spring? I have plans to replace the spring myself... I have so many plans[emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I can't recall for sure, but I think you can loosen the airbox boots first, and push them inwards to the airbox. If so, there should be space enough to pull the TB's out of the boots on the cylinder. If not, you may have to remove the airbox. I did that. I guess users with much more experience than me would chime in.
  4. I’ve just replaced all four boots with no special treatment. A small amount of silicone grease or green soap wouldn’t harm. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I absolutely love those mirrors[emoji1] Norton looks gorgeous! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks, I will do that. I no longer have an electric petcock, so no need for it. If it’s the wiring to the fuel level sensor, I can trace it to the 12-way AMP-connector in the instrument panel, right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Yes of course! It has to be air box sensor. Forgot about that. I clean every connector with electro cleaner. The fuel level connector hasn’t been used for a while obviously, so it’s very dirty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Too many connectors and bad memory? I'm not sure where those connectors should be... Can't find yellow/white+black wiring in Carl Allison's wiring diagram. From Carl's diagram the fuel level switch is wired with grey/white. The electric petcock(or fuel solenoid valve) should be yellow/blue. None of them was functional on my V11.
  9. Thanks for the compassion, friends. I appreciate your kind words. Yes, I'm very eager to take «miss greenie» for a trip, so I have to get her up soon. Here's my project status list: Oil Pan is glass bead blasted, painted and back in place. New gasket, oil filter, and bolts. The battery holder had some rusty spots. Sanded, painted and ready to be mounted. Burned 30A fuse/fuse-holder replaced with Tyco 30A breaker. The unoriginal and stiff intake rubbers are replaced. Fuel filter and fuel hoses are replaced. Throttle bodies are cleaned and mounted. Partly cleaned in my ultrasonic cleaner with kerosene and manually with brake cleaner. The defective electric petcock is replaced with a manual type. External ground (1,5mm2) to voltage regulator is replaced with new (10mm2/7 AWG) https://www.flickr.com/photos/hammershaug/albums/72157714007221726/page2 Haven't decided about replacing the pawl spring now, or after season. Haven't decided to put back the air filter box or the new, big K&N's. Yes, I know, the warning... but I like it that way;)
  10. Hello guys! There has been another delay in my project due to the passing of my father. We lost him May 17th, our national day. He had suffered from Alzheimer's disease since 2013, and I sat with him when he died. Because of that all my time has gone with the funeral and supporting my mum. I have lost my wife, my father in law, my uncle and my father in 2,5 years. Sick and tired of death. Anyway, the Greenie is in good health! I hope to lift her out of the basement soon. Yes, @docc it's about time, and I will of course post a mirror image
  11. Proper grounding to the voltage regulator, but not happy with copper-aluminum connection. I guess some white Vaseline will do good. Feinschmecker wire to starter motor. Phoenix Gold 5 AWG (16mm2) Next up: Fuses! A new Tyco 30A breaker will replace my burned fuse.

  13. Thanks for sharing your experience. My shock seems to be okay AFAIK. I guess it will serve me well this year. Maybe an upgrade to Wilbers next year. Fine wire Irdium is indeed ditched and replaced with NGK BPR 6 ES. I'm sure they're good enough. I have no plans splashing out loads of money on an Öhlins. I check around last night - and damned they're expensive! As a member of The Norwegian Moto Guzzi Club, I think we have a discount on Wilbers. Not much though. I'm an electrician by profession, so I think so. I'm grateful to @Kiwi_Roy and his wiring schemes. I don't have a PowerCommander. Isn't that old school tuning? Thanks for the tips! Ok, that's noted. Gonna stick with the NGK's this time. Sorry, never heard of Brisk. Looks impressive. Thanks for your inputs guys. I really appreciate it!
  14. Okay, thanks, gentlemen. I'm learning something new every day. I had yet another good time in the basement this evening. Progression is steady but slow. Waiting for the oil pan to return after glass bead blasting. Still cleaning TBs ao parts. Reading, thinking, and reading some more. Newbie alert: I wonder if I should replace the rear shock with an Öhlins or Wilbers... Now or later. Hmmm. Greenie has the original blue/white shock(Sachs?). Is this the right time, or can it wait? One more thing. I just found out that Miss Greenie has a drinking problem. She must go to rehab very soon.
