  1. Great looking bike. What have you done with indicators?
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. Got bike shop to fit Guzzi ones I got from Guzzi dealer.
  6. Thanks Guys. Will check it out
  7. I replaced Neutral Sensor/switch in left hand side of gearbox a couple of months ago because it was leaking from the plastic end. This solved the leak but now neutral light comes on when in gear and goes out when in neutral ( the opposite to what is meant to happen.) Is it likely to be just a faulty switch( Cheap at $20 odd) or an electrical problem? Old switch worked fine.

    rear rack

    I'm thinking it maybe a Ventura rack https://www.ventura-bike.com/fitments/moto-guzzi/moto-guzzi-1100-v11-sport-00-02/
  9. Yes I was thinking satin clear coat paint to. Will talk to a mate who is a panel beater/car painter see what he thinks
  10. Tattley Rappit is on again. See website for details https://tattleyrappet.wixsite.com/rally?fbclid=IwAR10TM1d4ozCBErKya7lrtwnWfL7A_0gpiugPMSIVBCrTUA0aY3F8H4s4vU
  11. Has anyone else had problems with the paint on their grey tail unit on their Rosso Mandello? Mine goes from grey to a dull white colour. I've used Meguiars Liquid Wax which brings colour back to normal (photo attached) On attached photo I've waxed the top but not bottom to show difference. With panniers frames and a carrier to do a good job you need to remove them both so its not a 5 minute job. Any ideas whats causing the discolouring and of a way to avoid having to use the wax?
  12. First long ride since last summer. Tacked on a couple of days to last weekend and headed for Blenheim to visit family. East coast north of Kaikoura still has a lot of road works as a result of the earthquakes a few years ago so you have to be patient with numerous stop/go guys. What was a 4 hour trip is now 6 hours. Return trip was quicker but colder from snow that had fallen previous day. Bike went well. Just clicked over 60,000 ks. Rally season coming up here so should be able to get a few more rides in.
  13. Thanks guys for the advice. I surpose torque on these bolts wont be that much so helicoil is way to go.
