  2. Thinking there is a moral to this story
  3. Instructions are in the workshop manual, you need a micrometer to do it properly, buy one, they are cheap enough and handy to have.

    Plugs could be sooted from rich running while cold starting if its been done 2 or 3 times without a run, so don't read too much into them. How old is the fuel filter. Clean and check every contact you can find. Free/cheap/simple stuff first.
  5. Other semi-standard items are clattering clutch, gearbox oil leaks, oxidising paint and unique to the scura, DNA from this little fella
  6. On frequently accessed fixings I use copper grease and on others I use a smear of liquid gasket on the theory that once it sets its waterproof and will also prevent nuts and bolts from wandering. It has worked for 20plus years. But I could be wrong.
  7. Symptoms: Missed gears, false neutrals, inconsistant lights, strange noises and poor 1st gear selection. Diagnosis: It's a Moto Guzzi. Outlook: Incurable. Prognosis: Call it character.
  8. On my Scura I keep it wound right off, loads of bumpy roads out my way and no head shakes. I think its just jewelry.
  9. I know its a bank holiday weekend but 3-6 of May is Spinal Injuries Research something or other (not belittling it) I was reading about it in a magazine. It is an issue that should be close to our hearts as many victims are bikers. Anyway, around that time does anyone fancy some sort of meet-up, day run or overnighter and some kind of way of collecting a few shekkles for the charity? Just an Idea....... Post here. Allihies was nice...... So was laragh..... Westport ish anyone?????
  10. I'm up for it, so that should put some off . With ref to Irish Guzzisti the man to speak tois Tom Murphy aka kerryblue on the Guzzi gb forum. You probably chatted to him at Glendalough. As mentioned before mid august is when a lot of people will be away and I think a few of the guys may be planning a trip over to the Vtwin rally this year, that being the last weekend of august could put a damper on it. What about early summer?
  11. Following on from the success of the last meet, we are having another. Laragh near Glendalough Co Wicklow Sat/Sun 20/21 Oct.
  12. My cali ev did 122mph with a big screen according to my sat nav on a flat motorway, dunno what the speedo said,I was too scared to look down. My scura did 139mph in the same place speedo read about 145, and my aprilia futura does 157 and not a jot more. BUT as it has been said many times before by many people, its not about how fast it goes.
  13. Hey, Dave. Do you know any good jokes?
  14. Ahh, a kindered spirit. Thats whats needed in this world, positive waves
  15. Its a late reply I know but hey. I have a Cali EV a Scura and an Aprilia Futura RST 1000. It is faster than the Guzzi's it is more comfortable than the Guzzi's it has a better tank range than the Guzzi's it is more reliable than the Guzzi's it has better wind protection than the Guzzi's and it handles better than the Guzzi's.........I ride most days and do around 15,000 miles a year. In the past 2 years the Aprilia has only clocked about 250 miles. What makes Guzzi's so good can't be put into words, its like trying to explain what something tastes like or what sex feels like. You just have to experience it for yourself.
