  1. Thanks, I'll check them out. I had heard that the Seattle dealer had closed, that's not them? They're ~200 miles from me, which would make it challenging. But if they sell parts that would definitely help.
  2. So it turns out I had already reached out to MG Cycle. Gordon got back to me today and says that this is the correct part: http://www.mgcycle.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=135_136&products_id=90 But we already have one that looks just like it, and it's too short. The description says it's 63.25"+3.25". ThisOldTractor.com doesn't have a parts catalog for this bike, but I managed to find this: https://www.parts-motoguzzi.com/moto-guzzi-motorcycles/1100-MOTO-GUZZI-MOTORCYCLES/CALIFORNIA/1998/California-EV-V11-EV-USA-/ According to that, the part number is 03093000. One domestic site shows it as 58.5" + 4" (and wants $90 for it). But a document I found on a French Moto Guzzi site indicates it's 1593 mm x 1440 mm (62.7" x 56.7", or 56.7" + 6"), which sounds a whole lot closer to what we need: https://languedocmotosrenov.com/pdf/cables/Embrayage.pdf I'm praying we can find the original to compare it to. Unfortunately, the process is basically break-the-cable/order-new-part/wait-for-part/find-time-to-work-on-it/install-new-cable. Unfortunately, with typical Oregon winters and personal schedules, that second-last step takes a while. I'm afraid that someone threw away the old cable somewhere along the line.
  3. Yeah, finding the right part is the hard part.
  4. Service, if it's close enough. But definitely parts. Right now I've got a '98 EV11 with a broken clutch cable that I need to replace.

  6. Apparently Aprilia Moto Guzzi in Portland, OR closed? They're still listed in the Find Dealer page on the Guzzi site, and their website is still up, but all of my phone calls go straight to voicemail. I haven't been able to find any other source for service/parts in the Pacific Northwest. Any suggestions?
