  1. Meinolf,
    I posted this yesterday...

    "I realize this thread is as old as dirt, yet maybe the world has changed since 2007. I also posted this question under the "Fuel Mapping" thread. I don't mean to be redundant, I it's just with these older threads, I', hoping my question gets found:)
    I would really like to improve the fuel mapping in my 2003 Rosso Corsa. I had the TuneBoy work done to it, and it came out pretty good, not amazing, but pretty good . I still had the hesitation at the 2700 to 3000 rpm range. Actually I didn't love the throttle response below 3000 rpms in general. Any how, a blown clutch. a bit of fiddling by the Guzzi dealer and 5 years later it needs a refresh/update.

    Thus my question. Go back and have the TuneBoy refreshed or are there better options at this point? I'm not looking for a fire breathing dragon here, just a better, smoother throttle response."

    The feedback I got was...
    "Interesting. The question about whether "Beetle" (not a member here) has written V11 maps came up at the Fifteenth South'n SpineRaid. Dunno. :huh2:

    For sure, though, our member Meinolf has likely written the very best V11 mapping to date. Far better than any other option, as I understand. :thumbsup:"

    Thus my reason for reaching out...Do you have any maps for the Rosso Corsa available and how might I obtain one?

    Thank you in advance.

  2. Thanks again Pete, I sent him an e-mail through the website!!!

  7. Yep, a Yankee, although you are right Bill, I have moved:) I'm now in Acworth, Ga:) and where the heck are all the Guzzisti? It's bad enough I can't find a decent deli, but no Guzzi Dealers, no Guzzisti to ride with! I'm gonna take all your advice. Hang on the the RC, try out the Griso...I'll keep you all updated if I choose to sell. Thanks for all your feedback!
  8. Noted. Actually, my first reaction was that of some others here: "Uhm ... turo ... how much for the RC?" But, as I have about 10 big-ticket items of all sorts vying for my limited discretionary pennies (e.g., a tractor, kayaks, another motorcycle (or two), etc.), I'd better pass. Or not. Kathi did not roll her eyes when I mused aloud about it, so maybe I should leap. That, or she just knows to ignore my ramblings. I have to say that I think the Rosso Corsa is the epitome of Guzzi moto-art. Best-looking of any since 1921. I lust after one as I do after -- truncated thought; Kathi is looking over my shoulder now. Anyway, gorgeous: So ... to the merits. At 54, you are youngster! I am 68 (gasp) and yet seem to have fewer of the "aches & pains" complaints that plague aging motorcyclists. OTC drugs help, of course, but a beer or bourbon (or both ) at the end of the day see me through, too. My Ballabio was not such a timeless looker, but had its charms. It had the higher, wider bars that some of that series used, thus it was not quite the RC in various ways, tho I did add an Ohlins rear and Mistrals, which made it even finer. I regret selling it whenever I think about it ... which is often. That said, I always find it interesting to read that others who have or have ridden both beats find the V11 series "more visceral" than the 8v Grisos, and the latter "more refined." Obviously, "YMMV" in all such things, but that is not how how I view the two. IMO, my '10 Griso -- which is, btw, being "rollerized" at Rose Farm Classics just now -- is the brute worthy of its Italian literature namesake. While its engine is indubitably more mechanically advanced -- spare me the DLC-disaster jokes -- its conversion of fossil fuel to fun is, again, IMO, way more robust, UNrefined, and visceral than my beloved Ballabio. The Griso is a rodeo bull compared to the Ballabio. The latter never disappointed, but there is no comparison to how the Griso grunts, stomps, and delivers fun. Shown here with my Norge along the Susquehanna River near Farrandsville, Pa., on SR 120. I use this pic to illustrate that it can tour. This was a four-dayer and -- as stated, with appropriate dosages of Mexican food, beer, and a Kentucky nightcap or two , I was (more or less) ready for the next riding day. Here is another pic, taken in Wisconsin, of it also rigged for longer trips. Yup, I love it, and pray -- rather literally if not selfishly -- that I have many more years of (safe) riding ahead. Good luck with that decision; I recommend that you keep the RC ... and buy a Griso. Every harem needs "diversity." Best, Bill Thanks for the feedback Bill, I appreciate it:) -john
  9. The VF1000R or the Rosso Corsa:)
  10. The 1100i is by far my favorite bike ever. The character of that engine puts a smile on my face everyday, it handles very well...the suspension is more compliant, so even with a board of a seat, my butt doesn't kill me. I'm tall so the reach isn't that bad, the pain factor is: my neck as I need to extend it to look up and my knees, oh those high foot pegs. AND I have NEVER had a single problem with it, ever. I also know it has a defined purpose, just for Sundays, 3 to 4 hours is enough:) I could never sell it. The St-1100s are my vacation - 1 to 2 weeks on the road bikes. The Rossa Corsa has a different purpose; 2 to 3 day, long weekends. Thus the basis of my question:) My thought is the Griso may be better suited for that 2 to 3 day jaunt. I think it's test ride time - I can always sell the VF1000R:) Thanks for you feedback:)
  11. I know, stupid question of the day, yet... Should I sell my 2003 Rossa Corsa for an 8v Griso? Why? Because at 54 I think I'd like something more upright... It's either that or start the journey of lower foot pegs and bar risers. Also I hear the 8v engine is sweet:) Thanks in advance:)
  12. Not sure if they still use the same parts from the 90's...this was a stock replacement clutch, let's see how it goes:) Thanks for your feedback, it's much appreciated!
  13. I had the Moto Guzzi stock replacement clutch installed. I'm worried, because if after 12,000 it happened once I'm afraid at 25,000 it'll happen again. Aside from the noise the clutch works just fine! I'm gonna put some miles on the bike this summer, let's see if the noise quiets down:) Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it.
  14. Over the Forth of July holiday I lost my clutch on my 2003 Rosso Corsa, more specifically the clutch plates broke apart. I had a new clutch installed...which leads me to these questions. 1) Is this common? 2) The thing is much louder than before, it clangs like a freaking bell. Is this normal, I mean I know these clutches are loud but this is a little crazy...or will it quite down after a few thousand miles? 3) Is there a better clutch option, meaning is there a better aftermarket clutch or other alternative that is quieter and more reliable? Thank you in advance:) -john
