  1. 15,726 miles. I asked about it yesterday and he still has it. I don't need another V11 lol...
  2. Get a Shindengen Mosfet from here and you'll never have to worry about a regulator again. Have them on the Ducati's. http://www.roadstercycle.com/
  3. Here's a red frame for sale in Virginia Beach: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/702278560627125
  4. I like the visitors registry in the garage.
  5. How many folks made it down? Pictures!
  6. Not going to make it after all, my wife's sister passed away yesterday.
  7. Luckily the starter decided to give up the ghost two weeks ago. I had a spare ready and waiting so all should be well.
  8. Well, just the Coppa is going to make it down. Wife is going to follow along with the SUV and tools and such. Maybe her V7 will be there next year.
  9. I'm bringing a Lenovo Flex tablet that has it loaded as well as cables and a couple of different map .bins.

    One cylinder. You could actually feel the bike shake in sync with it. It could be that the fuel map for one or the other needs some tweaking.
  13. Is there an after market alternative to the stock oil pressure switch? Mine has started leaking from the top.
  14. $12,000 Coppa in Raleigh: https://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2004-Moto-Guzzi-V11-Coppa-Italia-5012994050

    Map Day

    Decided it was the day to play with maps and tuning. Did the Decent Tune Up route a few weeks ago and valves to 0.007/0.009", idle bypass full closed. Coppa with Ti mufflers and front crossover. I've not been able to match the map up on it with anything out there, ran decently except for the occasional 3k blip and stubborn cold start. First up was Meinolf's 2017.08.31_#93_6. Cured the cold start issue, fired up right off. Set idle to 1100 rpm and went for a ride. Huge improvement at 4-5000 rpm up. Only problem was 3k rpm cruising, stumbling and missing like crazy. Roll on a litt
  16. About an hour and a half away. There's also another Coppa in Charlotte.
  17. Which ones are those? I looked all over their site for Guzzi ones but they didn't list any.
  18. Well, let's see. Decided to check the TPS today and found it set at 300 mv with all the assorted goodies disconnected and the throttle body fully closed. Set it to 157mv and proceeded to balance the throttle bodies. Lo and behold found a clamp between the throttle body and the left cylinder wasn't snugged down so there was an obvious leak there. Since it seemed to run pretty well with all this going on it will be interesting to see how it does when I take it out in the morning.
  19. Add another one if you've got sufficient material.
  20. Made reservations, coming with the wife's V7 and my V11.
  21. I had a 1 second or so solid light on hard accelerations on the level before. No sign of it now even on mountain twisties.
  22. Installed a week ago, hard running up and down the mountains last weekend with not a flicker from the oil light 😊
  23. Is that the one that was in Greenville?
  24. Giving this a try this oil change. Elevated zinc/ phosphorous content Ideal for flat tappet valvetrains https://www.royalpurple.com/product/hps-high-performance-street-motor-oil/
