  1. Knackered battery, new one fitted and all good. Thanks for your assistance cheers andy
  2. Thanks guy's plan is to get the battery load tested today, and then move from there, would be probably if it was the battery as it's the simplest option. But my luck recently with the V11 would suggest not.
  3. So I was away for a couple of weeks and as a precaution disconnected the battery, came back checked the battery and it seemed to have a reasonable level of charge in it. connected it back up, key in the ignition turned it on all the lights come on click on the start button, loudish clonk noise all the lights go of,and nothing turn it of and on again one of the relays makes noise like a siren, so replaced that but still no joy on starting. My charger indicates battery is charged, fuses in the fuse box under the seat look good, are there any other fuses elsewhere in the loom say under the fuel tank or somewhere, as the engines been out recently I was expecting the earth connections to be clean and sound, only other thing worth mentioning would be it's had a new stator fitted last month. From other posts as it's a 2001 bike, startus interruptuse shouldn't be the issue. Any suggestions gratefully received. Cheers Andy
  4. Motokiwi had been trying to get one but apparently when it turned up wasn't the right one apparemtly. Scrambling around for an alternative.
  5. Hi Pete, Just messaged you Cheers Andy
  6. My understanding is that is the single plate clutch (Guzzi part no GU01084440/ Surflex clutch plate part no 83M4) Thanks for the suggestion of MGCycles
  7. After a bit of help, could you recommend Guzzi part suppliers in Aussie/US/UK that might be able to supply a clutch for a 2001 V11 Sport (Rosso Mandello) my mechanic in NZ is coming up empty on after market clutch plates, and has been quoted NZ$3500 for a complete clutch assembly from Guzzi NZ. Any options for where I might be able to source a clutch without selling a kidney would be much appreciated. Cheers Andy

  9. See I reckon they are looking to steal sales from the R9T Urban GS rather than the F800GS, as it looks a little retro so full on adv bike is probably not where they are going, but that's just me.
  10. Found this via Twitter, and forgive the Google translate :- The novelty starts with the engine - which will see a potential (1000-1200 cc) capacity - that will have nothing to do with current Big Bore or Small Block and will adopt a mixed cooling system with the head part cooled to liquid while lower air cylinders should remain cool for the cylinders So looks as the majority suspected a new air/water cooled V-Twin a la BMW approach, which will be shown in a concept of which the article had no details. (Original link :- https://www.gpone.com/it/2017/10/16/news-prodotto/moto-guzzi-ad-eicma-un-concept-rivoluzionario.html#.WeXKXlZHabo.facebook) Plus looks like last years V9 X-Track concept is a production bike for 2018.
  11. Received the Clan email today and it's bit on EICMA had the following:- "To start with, those of you that joined us to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary V7 are going to find many more good reasons to carry on celebrating, in fact, as many reasons as the number of new special editions of this iconic model that will be on display at the fair." So looks like more V7 special editions, and a little cagey on other stuff, but hey who doesn't love a V7 special edition, new Stornello anyone.
  12. We had a local dealer here in Wellington that had these new around 2008/9 he struggled to move them, I think people liked the look but generally went with the Ducati Monster which he also sold if they went italian. Because like Benelli and Bimota they seem to pop in and out of bankcrupty/insolvancy at an alarming rate people were even more reluctant to splash the cash than they would be on a Guzzi because of dealer support/spares issues. Reviews at the time were also somewhat lukewarm.
  13. Tough at the moment, I have ridden the 8v Griso and it's a nice bike, so if I didn't have the V11 would be in the mix it was just to similar to the current to change, otherwise rode the V9 Roamer/Bobber and was actually quite impressed so they would be in the mix.
  14. Always thought the original T3 Speed Triple was a similar sort of animal to the V11, quick enough, has a presence about it a little old school and relatively rare.
  15. Thanks for all the comments, was never really keen on the take offs, so the bike goes in on saturday for a conti road attack, (160/60) I have had good experience with these on my last bike. Cheers Andy
