    When those threads all got moved to "How to . . .", the "answered" feature was lost. I wish we could restore that to make those threads more of a reference instead of having to wade through the entire process and content.

    Immediately dropped to 12.45v? Seems the 12.77v was just on the surface. So, yep: condition your battery and try again . . . That said, "Yuasa" are not Odyssey AGM by a long shot. YMMV

    12.45 is a really weak AGM. Like 50% at 40ºF. Seriously, discharge the battery with the lights. and apply 6 amps, or more, to bring the battery manually to 14.7 volts (do not exceed 15v). Discharge with the lights and repeat. You can restore these AGM, but only with adequate amperage and a mind to the maximum voltage.
  4. Hi, JKV11! Yes, the resistance of the LED are not great enough for the flasher to function correctly. You may have results changing to an electronic "flasher" unit designed for the task. Others have added resistors to the circuit. I found that only using the front signal units, only, lets my Sport function normally while retaining the rear incandescent bulbs.
  5. A beautiful V11 LeMans juxtaposed with traditional Dutch windmills just seems so right on so many levels . . .

    AFC tuning?

    Tom, if it stopped charging, perhaps it was not so much rich on one side, but simply not firing (and burning the mixture) well? Why not get her charging, do a complete tune-up and ride the first chance you get. Recheck the plugs and decide if the problem has solved itself . . .
  9. Basic guzidiag tutorial for V11 That and proceed with the "Decent Tune-up" (or equivalent).
  10. Proper bike with ribbed front tire and no fender. And seats!? Bah! seats or for wusses! Just put your balls between the shocks and crack on!
  11. That prick with the EPA has been screwing things up for a long time. Case in point: one "Walter Peck" . . .
  12. If you do your own work a lift is mandatory. With the HF ones available all day for $299 with a coupon, it’s the best investment ever. Every single person who gets a lift says the exact same thing, why didn’t I get one sooner? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Yes, the only reason I haven't bought one yet is space. I'll be putting up a backyard shed soon, and that will free up garage space for the lift. I do my own work and have a couple other bikes so it will get used often. I just keep my Sport parked on it rolled into a Baxley Sport Chock. It takes up very little more space than the bike that. And looks like a museum exhibit with the with the rope lighting . . .
  13. Proper hammers for proper things . . .
  14. madbunny, I am also looking at the #46 "Injection Utilities Relay." This relay is a High Current demand relay supplying the Coils, Injectors, and the Fuel Pump. Be certain this relay is of High Current specification: High-Current OMRON G8HE-1C7T-R-DC12 USA source: Mouser Electronics, USA
  15. New AGM batteries, "off the shelf", are well known to be delivered at 50% State of Charge. So, this could still be weak battery (perhaps combined with a series of resistant electrical connections). Since I have beat this Battery Conditioning thing enough, no one will be surprised: madbunny: What is the battery type and manufacturer? The replacement is new and unused battery? Connect a quality voltmeter to the battery. Report the following voltages: 1) Voltage after the battery has been static 6 hours. 2) Run switch ON ( should be virtually no change as there are no lights). 3) Cranking the starter/ plugs out. 4) Cranking the starter/ plugs in.
  16. Yes, worth inspecting the condition of the magnets in the starter as well as cleaning and treating all of the connections especially the positive cable and the mounting bolts which ground the starter case.
  17. Sounds like it revs pretty freely!
  18. I know the day will come when I have to replace my original valve cover gaskets. Probably should keep them, grind them into a powder and smoke 'em. (It's like "drinking the KoolAid", but more edgy . . . )
  19. madbunny, would you post pictures of the fuse block and the relay set so we can think of how much this wiring is like the V11?
  20. It appears the spark stops when full engine compression slows the cranking speed.
  21. I thought it was cool to sneak hammers into Guzzi pictures and this man comes along with scythes in the background. That is totally badass.
  22. What did they say? I kept listening for "versione stradale" . . .
  23. Wow, Phil, so expertly done. It is such a privilege to see and share this in such spectacular detail. Thank you, Sir!
  24. That makes sense. The tank vents through the cap to the right nipple. Original US V11 then involve the Rube Goldberg twenty-feet-of-hoses-and-two-canisters that I recall had a vacuum pulled on them from the vacuum taps on the intakes. Seems there was also the nefarious "tip-over" valve that was sensitive to orientation. With an open vent, like mine, I suppose it can push out or pull in as necessary. The overflow drain under the cap is not in the sealed section of the tank and drains fuel spill, or water that might blow or fall in there, to the left nipple. In the factory configuration, the two systems are fully separated. I'm thinking my vent actually works better combined with the drain and open to atmosphere. We discovered early-on how vulnerable the original system could be to "tank suck."
