Guzzisti (2/5)



  1. From non-Guzzi Clan folks: "They still make Moto Guzzis?"

    Lifting the V11

    Hey, you found bag racks for it. Where'd they come from?
  5. "Your bike only has one neutral?"
  6. I purchased on of the Grimeca's from Ebay and it's worked out fine. Brembo actually sold the rights to this model to Grimeca so it is pretty much the same other than color.
  7. I had a Motion Pro using mercury that worked well but then it got to where you couldn't get mercury any longer. Purchased the blue fluid version and still could not get a good balance even with calibrating it, etc. Bought one of these and never looked back: http://www.carbtune.com/carbdtls.html
  8. I'm running this in the Coppa: https://www.royalpurple.com/product/hps-high-performance-street-motor-oil/ Silicon = 7 ppm (anti-foaming agent in new oil, but in used oil, certain gasket materials and dirt can also add to this number), Boron = <5 ppm (detergent/dispersant), Magnesium = 46 ppm (detergent/dispersant), Calcium = 3626 ppm (detergent/dispersant), Barium = <1 ppm (detergent/dispersant), Zinc = 1774 ppm (anti-wear), Phos = 1347 ppm (anti-wear), Moly = 189 ppm (anti-wear), Potassium = 11 ppm (anti-freeze inhibitor), Sodium = 2 ppm (anti-freeze inhibitor), TBN = 10.2 (Total Base Number is an acid neutralizer to prevent corrosion.)

  10. Well, after finding a second Bronze Norge that the owner sold out from under me three days before I was scheduled to pick it up, I've became a bit gun shy of that color (bad mojo). So, this one is purchased and on the way home next week. 2013 model.
  11. Anyone know what the closest paint match to the original is on the valve covers? Mine is starting to flake a little.

  13. Okay, I've got a friend (not me!) looking at purchasing a 2000 Jackal that has been sitting in a guy's basement for 7 years. Besides a gummed up fuel system what else do you think would need to be fixed? Seals?
  14. ST3 is in a totally different class, more like a comfortable sport bike with luggage hung on as an afterthought. Quicker turning and peppier. The Norge is like a Griso with full fairings. Solid handling but not built for tight twisties at speed, nice torque from low on rpm's. Drop it down two gears and the acceleration for passing, etc is perfectly fine.
