  1. Hi All, Have been trawling through some of the posts on the forum and come accross several suggestions but what are people's favroutite choice on the earlier red frame models? I know that the suspension tweaks suggested and lowering the forks can improve matters but what would you go for with regards to tyres? Also do lots of people go for the 170 on the rear? TIA Martin

    No! Replace at all costs. Had this happen my v11. Grease the new pivot bolt well.

  4. 240 of them at present. Just bought some myself
  5. Interesting and similar discussion on the H4 LED - other lighting thread. After 12 pages or so Docc's conclusions were - So . . from what I have learned so far: 1) Replacement/ "upgrade" LED units do not compliment the existing reflector to project a reliable beam pattern. This is across the board and not just this one unit. The LED unit I referenced has a better lo-beam pattern, but sketchy hi-beam pattern. 2) The higher Kelvin "color" of ~5000K ( "whiter/bluer" than the more yellow halogen ~ 4300K), does not reflect the road surface and features back as well. 5000K reflect
  6. Any replacment bulb is only going to perform as well as the reflector's quality and ability. I would be interested to see if there was a comparison of such LED bulbs with those of a specific LED headlight such as the JW Speaker unit? Anyone out there able to put a bike side by side? The cost of an LED bulb with OEM reflector is quite a lot less than a specific LED headlight afterr all.
  7. Would you be prepared to post them to the UK?
  8. Went out to the Bucks branch MG club meet which is about 50 minutes riding time each way on a variety of roads from fast duel carriageway to a lot of country lanes and it didn't cough once. Still can't quote believe it. That's the first time in 5 years!
  9. Well everyone success, although I haven't been out on a ride yet. New plugs. Took the fuel pressure regulator out and clenaed it with a bit of petrol and an airline.There was a bit of dirt in there but nothing excesive. Realised that previoiusly I hadn't compeltely realeased the rough idle cam on the right hand side and managed to get a quality 2.5mm hex socket to back off competely the screw. With the linkage disconnected the TPS was reading 11mv, With that corrected and the other bits done too you can imagine whtat a differecne it made. With the LH 2.5mm hex wound in a little bit it wil
  10. Thanks for all your replies. I'll be getting back into the garage middle of next week. The fuel regulator is no longer avaialble through Guzzi but I'll take it out and blow it out with an airline first just in case any muck has got in there. Stein Dinse show it as still be available as a Ducati item so I guess this Weber item must be standard on several injection systems. I don't suppose anyone has got a Weber part number? The TPS setting has been done with the linkage disconnected. I tried to back out the 2.5mm stop screw but i'ts so rarely used and difficult to get to I'm not sure wh
  11. Dear All, Being following the bad cough thread with interest. My situation 2001 V11. Valves set at 25mm, CO trim 0, new intake rubbers, air bleed screws and airways cleaned. Balanced with a Twinmax Idle very nicely but still coughing from just off idle to 2000rpm Tried setting the TPS to 157mv but it didn't particularly like it far happier at around 250 - 290mv. Tried putting the CO trim to +10 which helped marginally. Yesterdfay loaded thye BIN file Meinolf sent me some time ago and it improved the running greatly although it then didn't like to idle much now but the pickup throu
  12. Can I get a couple of these springs, I'm in the UK? Cheers Martin
  13. Can you put me down on the list for one too£ when are they next available I'm in the UK. Thanks Martin
  14. I'm having similar difficulties. Although mine idles well at 2000rpm it does cough badly almost pushing the intake rubbers off (which are pretty new). I know a lot of the time tight valves don't help. With the valves set at 25mm (cold obviously) do you not find that even when the engine is up to tempreature there is a lot valve train noise, is this ok? - M
  15. Going to replace the outer one to begin with. Who would you recommend as the best quality bearing manufacturer?
