  1. @gstallons should work now
  2. Hey all, been a while! Below is a link to my local craigslist post of parts I have from rebuilding the V11. Let me know if anything interests you. I have a few plastic pieces left over as well. I have the stock intake assembly too. @Bob Maynard Let me dig through the box and see what I've got! Cheers, https://bellingham.craigslist.org/mpo/d/bellingham-moto-guzzi-parts/7138339050.html

    My V11 Build

    Well everyone, glad to report the V11 is back on the road and kicking ass! I got the new motor put in yesterday and wrapped up all the small things today. I installed a new Roper Plate (very sweet by the way @Pressureangle) highly recommended and a very easy install when the motor is out of the frame and flipped upside down I put roughly 30 miles on it today and nothing but smiles, had to stop and get some beauty shots. A short backstory, this bike was wrecked and was pretty gnarly. I refinished the gas tank, made a new subframe, new headlight and control area. New bars, grips, bar end signals, new digital speedo among other things. Then the motor went, so bought a new/used one on eBay with 3000 miles, went through it and tossed it into the beast and here we are! Now, my V11 may not be everyones taste which I totally get but wanted to turn it into a sweet rugged machine, something to match with the grunt of the motor. It is by no means a Scrambler but has a vibe as such, it's a pavement only bike but the knobby tires really handle well on the street. I can still carve the curves and hit the highway with no issues. I don't ever ride in the rain so went with POD filters and no rear fender so no one complains about that... Anyways, got the bike back together and want to thank you all for the help with my questions and the wealth of info this forum contributes! Pics posted below
  6. Yeah, I am reusing my throttle bodies and other bits on the new motor!
  7. The seller on eBay? He may...the new motor I bought did not come with so possibly he held on to them!
  8. Update to this, still have all the parts. I am looking to let everything go. Some of you may know I just recently bought a brand new timing chest from AF1 racing. I won't be swapping that over...maybe I should keep it haha. I'd like for the parts to go quickly as I have limited shop space at the moment. Everything is in really good condition except for that damaged connecting rod and the crank which could most likely be rebuilt. Let me know if anyone has any questions! Cheers
  9. Good idea, I actually do plan on doing this as well. I have leak down and compression testing instruments. It's great having the motor out already. Makes most of this much less painful haha. Thanks!
  10. Ok good deal, that is awesome info! I probably should. I really liked pulling this motor, best fun Ive had in a while.....NOT. Thanks again
  11. Thanks mate, yeah I am planning on taking care of those 8 deals above. I really reading this on another thread! I'll most likely hold off on opening the clutch unless I can access a special too.
  12. So I bought a bike that had a little tip over with 16k miles on it. and apparently a con rod bearing that was on its way out. Either from running when tipped over or just a bad bearing...who knows. I bought this new motor with only 3k on it but don't know the full history on it unfortunately. The guy I purchased it from bought this bike to use the motor for in another project bike he had but sold it instead and now I bought the motor.
  13. I am not entirely sure how long this new motor sat but on a standard motorcycle clutch that is bathed in oil if it sits for too long the plates can fuse together....Can this happen on these motors? The motor only has 3800 miles on it so don't think it it critical to open it up honestly...I do plan on doing a full check over on everything but just curious on this in particular. Cheers!
