  1. Well the cracked gearbox case has been a factor. I need to visit a mate of mine to get it welded and i also need to get the side flow injectors cleaned and flow tested. Plus there's this little fellow (Merlin) thats arrived. I havent had a dog in a very very long time. Forgotten how much time goes into a puppy. More work than a toddler. Std Schnauzer btw. Ciao
  2. Green top feed Bosch, cant remember off hand the flow rate but greater than the top feed red Bosch. The green side feed are also of greater flow rate than the green top feed. The side flow injectors are not only greater flow but also give cleaner and simplified plumbing and dont have the highly delicate feed hose connectors for which parts arent readily available any more. Ciao
  3. The std V11 doesnt have "side feed" injectors those are on the Centauro and Daytonas. Ciao
  4. So I guess the attitude is "please help me sort my issue but I couldn't be #@$&@#@ sitting down and having a think about what things/mods I've done to my bike over the years that might impact the process of finding a resolution". With 50 years of troubleshooting everything from commercial jets to racing motorcycles and cars YES you do need to enumerate ALL the variations, and it's NOT a DISCUSSION its a troubleshooting exercise. I find this type of shit totally disrespectful to those that are willing to help,really I do. Ciao
  5. So you didnt think it was sort of important that you would mention the bike is fitted with a power commander????????? It takes you half the thread to mention you recently replaced the fuel filter!!!!! Seriously, people come on here for troubleshooting advice and help and leave out the basic but highly relevant information. This is why I'm reluctant to get involved too much in these troubleshooting issues and waste my valuable time. Ciao
  6. Just make sure they incorporate aluminium inserts into mount points esp ones like the valve and alternator covers where the tabs are smaller. I'm sure there would be a market fora carbon V11 tank with all the Ethanol tank swelling issues about. Talking about tanks they should also be treated with a liquid liner before use to make doubly sure they arent affected over the long term. Ciao
  7. The Ohlins stuff is covered in the V11 workshop manual update. I can email it to you if you want. Ciao
  8. If you are running Unleaded fuel you can forget about looking at the exhaust tips for mixture information. That grey colour you used to see was lead deposits and the black you see now is the carbon thats a byproduct of low speed running and the warm up rich fuel map even if the mixture is correct. Ciao
  9. Very true docc. My set of sideflow throttle bodies for the Daytona engine were like this. Stripped one of the screw heads off. Was very fortunate the others came out(on the bench) My advice is plenty of heat with a small propane torch and all should be ok. I did manage to get out the broken one without damage by an easy out and the heat but it was a nervous task Ciao
  10. Because one comes standard in the Guzzi tool kit with every new bike along with a grease gun for the drive shaft fittings, a multimetre for the electrics and a tether to stop the bike floating away if you ever remove the flywheel. Ciao
  11. You replace wheel bearings every year!!!! no wonder the bearing bores are shot. How many miles do you do annually? Ciao
  12. Not a bad price on that wheel docc with a disk and drive assy even for 2015. Ciao
  13. Probably cheaper to buy a good second hand wheel. If you resleeve you would sleeve it to take the std bearing or bore the wheel hub to take a bearing with the same width and ID but larger OD if there's one available. Ciao
  14. But who says its lean, images can be misleading but it looks fine to me. The r/h may well be too rich. The only way to tell with any accuracy is to lambda probe each cylinder. Unless you're prepared to do that then its just going to be a drawn out proposition. Are we willing to wait for a few thousand miles to see the color of the ports to ascertain whether or not its corrected every time you make an adjustment or try something, because thats what it will take? I'll watch the rabbit get chased down the hole with interest. Ciao
