  2. Love the Rosso! Mines almost finished being spruced up after a hibernation; 100% original just love that very special mica red
  3. i think i have number 395 Rosso Mandello
  4. Hey all I am giving the old girl a spring clean and a spruce up. I cracked my screen and don't think i can get an original replacement. Luckily, the beautiful carbon fairing is in perfect condition and now super clean. While I was cleaning it I noticed an original sticker inside which gave me a very exciting clue; ser no. 395. Now being part of the second batch mine isnt numbered (first 300 were specially numbered models I believe). However, the ser no on the screen made me wonder is this a clue to its heritage? I have no reason to believe the screen isn't 100% original bei
  5. I know im four years late, But i have a second edition model, pretty much original down under in Sydney. Carefully stored for the last year.
  6. Hi All Long story short, I'm trying to locate (ideally) 2 carbon fairings as per my V11 Rosso Mandello original fitment. They are small, neat and headlight mounted. Aftermarket is ok, but carbon is a must. I can have screen made if need be. Any help much appreciated (tired googling and ebay'ing cant find anything) nigev11

  8. Raz cheers mate, much appreciated! The torque wrench is at the ready with anew set of bits; I'm off to the shed
  9. hey all a long time ago, i learned the value of carefully tightening critical bolts to the correct torque values. the manual has a list of them, but I cant find specs for the main frame/engine bolts, which to me would both suffer a lot of vibration and potentially upset handling and vibes if wrong. Anyone know what the values for these bolts and nuts should be? nigev11

    Heated Grips

    hey buzzard I just did a 6000km ride Sydney to Alice Springs to Sydney and that desert night air was cooooooold. I bought some oxford heaters on the way back and they saved my life. I agree the buttons are fiddly
  11. looking for a lemans fairing to fit to my rosso mandello for touring; anyone got one? Condition unimportant
  12. FOLLOW UP; POST REPAIRS hi all; just a quickie to let you knwo how it all panned out. Roper kindly replaced the suspect outer needle bearing with alow cost non standard item. Slightly different length, no problem. Refitted a replacement outer washer (was missing) Fitted new wheel bearings (no problems) Checked the cush drive; all perfect and clean and even came apart well. Drilled and greased the cush rubbers, replaced the brocken cush drive friction gasket, fitted s/s screws and anti seize paste. Got a new spindle (nyloc) nut from the local bolt shop for $2.40. Re-asse

  14. spoke to a reputable local supplier yesterday on the spindle diameter issue. he reckons that they are SUPPOSED to have steps machined in them and thus, stop panicking. He coudlnt give me a dimension to check wear but commented he had never been asked to replace one before;ie stop whining, start riding. ill take his advise
  15. savage henry; wow, good to know thanks; THE MANUAL IS WROMG THEN!!!! Ill clean and grease the cush and repeat; whats the deal with drilling them? I couldnt find any references when I searched. I agree on this site and you are right, I have gained heaps and owe some goodwill in return. Mark; on the bearing i took the lazy/safe option and sent it to pete roper with instructions to give the whole drive a once over. Figure at 50k its probably wortha check anyway.
  16. hey doing my rear end work, replacing bevel bearing i noticed my rear axle/spindle is worn. Cant find dimensions anywhere, any one know what it should measure in diameter? Im getting anywhere between 19.69 and 19.95mm. Second question on the axle torque The relevant page showing diagram suggests 28-30Nm for the spindle nut, which seems very low to me. HOWEVER, the torque table at the front of the manual says 120Nm for the "rear wheel spindle screw (housing side)" Is this the rear axle or is it something else? I note the front spindle value is 90-100 so it would be
  17. shit, that means id have a v11 rosso pontadero
  18. hey nice one guys good news is got it all apart and evrything (except the bearing you guessed at) looks fine. splines, my biggest worry, look good as new, no sign of wear that my aging eyes can see. All other bearings look and feel good too. So a few questions; a) am i right that to get this bearing out i have to diassemble the whole box? not beyond me but i dont have the special tools and would prefer to trust the reshimming and re ass to someone with the set up, doing it regularly see photo; im pointing at the culprit; should there be any type of shim or seal outboard of
  19. nice one guiys, thansk for the feedback. Ill go home, warn the wife and start pulling it apart. nigev11
  20. sorry if this posts twice... fiddling around i noticed my (01 rosso mandello) rear bevel drive seems to be way to loose or sloppy. If i grab it, I can rattle it laterally in pretty much any direction by a couple of mm, with a disconcerting little clonking noise. Intuition tells me its too much movement to be healthy and would cause all sorts of stresses and misalingment Im guessing maybe ive omitted the spacer washer, overloaded the bearings and wrecked them; otherwise they should pevent the bevel drive from moving around the axis of the axle; right? Im also assuming this is ho
  21. beinga slack pig i just re-checked mine after almost 17000 trouble free kms. There were still within 0.01mm. gotta luv a tracta donk nigev11
  22. agree with you all. Living down under, it seesm we predominantly got the later batch with no numbering. Mine has no eagle onthe seat cowl either. FWIW, the sidecovers are horribly prone to cracking (brittle plastic cantilereved mount). Last time o got mine fixed and painted again, i stashed them away for ever. I reckon they look better without the covers anyway
  23. hey all; aware and have read a number of posts on this subject. So, duly purchased a set of speed bleeders. In getting the old bleed nipple out, I noticed it was NOT tapered (?!) but instead was flat on the end with a noticable concave indent. Gulp. I managed to create a small magnet and sure enough dug out a ball bearing which it was obviously seating on. 1) This is surely not standard? 2) When i fitted the SB, it wasnt long enough 3)refitted the standard set up 4)comments / help?!!! nigev11
