  1. Hi, Advice needed. My Cafesport has been laid up for over a year now, but it’s time to get her ready for a summer of fun ( should be out of lockdown by then 😎). Anyway l drained the tank and changed the fuel filter when she was laid up. Is it a good idea to change the fuel lines as they are the originals, they look ok but it’s the internal condition I am worrying about (how come I only worry about the guzzi, and not any other bike I have😳). Also it is clips that are crimped onto the hoses and not jubilee clips, are they reusable or do I need to source new ones if I do the job. Cheers
  2. Lockdown is finally easing here. Went a 400 mile run on Monday to the west coast, roads were very quiet, no caravans, Motorhomes etc to impede progress. Loved it, just what I needed. Pubs, hotels, campsites open next week. See what the “new normal” is then.
  3. Have my swing arm off for some maintenance ( s/arm bearings are good, phew 😅). When refitting do you add threadlock or just lubricate the threads and tighten the locknuts. Would hate to damage the fine thread used. Can’t find any mention in the manual. cheers Gary
  4. Just cleaned up my front brakes and changed the oil. Looking across to the clutch cylinder on the bars and the fluid looks like cold tea. I know it’s a pain to get to the bleed nipple so have sort of ignored it for a long time . Any way the battery is out of the bike, so I removed the starter motor and the rear shock cylinder thing, all the room you will ever need to get to the bleed. Job done, easy peasy

    Nice job, love the colour.
  7. There is a V11 side stand on ebay with a modified plate fitted.
  8. Chuck, you beat me to it as i was going to post this. My bike has the same wear, I noticed because it seemed to be leaning over further than it used to. Scud has hit the nail on the head. I have always taken my bike out of the garage, put the sidestand down on a concrete drain cover and warmed it up,now there is a slight angle on my driveway so the bike can slide a few inches when rocking back and fore, obviously wearing away material off the stand every time. We need someone to engineer a solution, someone who likes a challenge and can make it look good, someone with, oh i dont know say a avi
