  1. My Speedo is bouncing a lot like Tom M's. It settles down for a few k's then starts bouncing again from one side to the other. Any fresh thoughts on a solution or do I follow Doc's path?

    Interesting V11 on Trade Me I'v never seem one with Moto Gadget electrics before https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/motorbikes/motorbikes/sports/auction-2626287352.htm?rsqid=764dd7e326cb48c496c5fda587acb5e8-001
  3. Sorry to hear a about the accident especially when it involves a Tenni. And then to get touched by the virus' Hope your luck improves Fellow Kiwi & V11 owner
  4. Good to know I'm not only one who has had this problem
  5. With a little help from MartyNZ I have solved my gear box problem. The cause was a peg that had fallen out of the gearbox selection panel. When I took the panel off I found the peg in the bottom of the gearbox. It had fallen out of the hole that's indented it the middle the panel. Thankfully it had not caused any damage to the gears. After we had checked there was nothing else wrong with the panel we hammered the peg back into the panel after coating it with medium Loctite. I see later model V11’s have a nut & bolt to replace the peg. I presume that someone else had this problem. Anyway bike changes gear fine now. I checked the frame number and its within the range that its it eligible for the transmission upgrade. I need to follow up on this.
  6. Thanks guys for the input The link to the recall notices is unavailable but found it here https://www.webbikeworld.com/moto-guzzi-v11-sport-recall/ Will follow up on it and report back
  7. On a ride with a few of the local Guzzi guys on Sunday I noticed I was getting a lot of false neutrals. When I went to reengage gear it was with a load grunch and then gear would be engaged but it had shifted 2 gears i.e. 5 to 3 or 2 to 4. This was happening either shifting up or down. Most gear shifts are happening like this. When taking of from standstill clutch engages fine. Gear shift linkage appears to be fine. I put bike on workshop stand and tried to shift gears with motor not going. It would only select 1st. With motor going shifting up and down gears was fine. Bike is a 2001 V11 Rosso Mandello with original Ram clutch 65,000 ks. Oils changed 5,000 ks ago Any thoughts on what cause of problem could be?
  8. Fellow RM owner here Where did you get the fairing from? What was involved in fitting it? I've looked at the Magni fairings but been blown aware by the price and not been happy about lowering bars
  9. Glad others have to resort to pliers to turn pet cock. Here I thought I was the only one who had to resort to that. Good idea about the quick disconnect
  10. Will you advertise here? I would be very interested in the fairing
  11. Great looking bike. What have you done with indicators?
  12. Many thanks for advice. I'm on my 3rd oil pressure switch so yes totally agree they are not very reliable. Will investigate oil pressure gauges
  13. Took friday off work to go so see family in Dunedin at weekend. Its a 800 k round trip. On friday it was warm and windy. On way back on sunday it was cool & wet. Yesterday about 30 k's from home the oil light came on. Initialy it was quite bright but it then faded to a low glow. I stopped and checked for any oil leaks & strange noises - none. I had checked oil level before I left and it was about 1/2 up dipstick. I had done an oil change about 2,000 ks before. I then started motor and oil light didn't come on so I road home. After motor had cooled a bit I rechecked oil level and it was about 1/2 way up dipstick. Motor does not normally use oil. Its done 63,000k i'm thinking (hoping) water had got into oil sensor on top of motor and caused light to come on. What do you think?
  14. Try Peter Kelly at Motokiwi in NZ. Did you know about NZ Moto Guzzi rally? Also know as Tattley Rappit Rally. Its at Motueka this weekend so probably no go if your clutch need replacing. I've got an RM to. Done 60k clutch still good.
