  1. Warning .. this is Country music. Today an indy radio station played a full hour of this guy. A great, sad story. I can't believe I've never heard of him. I love finding treasures like this, this way. If you have Amazon Prime and want to hear more, check out a dozen or so. Streams for free. No good videos I could find.
  2. my front wheel isn't exactly centered. I am using the wrong spacer and I can't find the correct one from the Rosso Corsa. On this list #7 is the one I'm after, but which? there are 3 The 390 is for std Lemans -Sport (from my 02) and p/n is correct for 02. the 380 is for RC and NC - T6 the 300 is for RC - T5 So, how to determine which is mine... T5 or T6 my guess is T5 as it's earlier, and Nero Corsa came in 04? ( nope, NC was an o3 too) thoughts?
  3. I'm so glad people can make instructional video like these, and are willing to share.
  4. I'm finally getting around to installing the Ohlins from my '03 Rosso Corsa parts bike, on to my '02 LeMans. Searching through the digital manuals I have loaded, I can't find any information supplement covering Ohlins. The shock and forks were rebuilt at Ducati Indy, and set to factory specs, tho I'd want to do the next rebuild myself. Tree p/n's are the same. I'd like to know what's different from standard regarding parts, (I see the axles are a different length) torques, and general assembly requirements, install wheels, etc. Is there a Ohlins manual supplement out there anyone knows of? Parts diagram? I think I've heard that the '03 and up are a different batch/model from the original ones on Scura. ? If there's a discussion somewhere on the forum, I can't locate it. The RC owner manual only says "Hello, yes you have Ohlins" It's all together, and a straight forward job, but I want to be confident.. and right.
  5. welcome back brenwin. I recommend imgzeit as well.
  6. I'm certainly not qualified to add anything to this, but a lean cyl would bug the crap out of me, and I would chase it to the best of my ability. which would include coming on this forum and ask
  7. TB balance port nipple cap missing/rotted? In any case I would try the "spray something flammable" on the intake rubber bits method, to see if any air leaks
  8. check this cz. worked well for me anyway. wheel off of course..
  9. Heck yeah, south of Indianapolis at Nashville, Indiana, take 135 all the way to the bridge at Brandenburg, or head west some after Nashville (Indiana) and take the squiggly bits through the Hoosier Natl Forrest and cross at Cannelton. A few straits here and there, but it's all good.
  10. With that tolerance, how would one ever get an accurate measurement? Considering that damage, my guess would be that the sensor was installed tight against the wheel long enough for them to realize they forgot something (shims)... but then, how did the bike run well until recently?
  11. So.. what metal did you end up using, and is the pattern and size of the "flow" holes the same as Pete's original?
  12. Tom, was that an oem sensor? I'm curious now as to what the "ideal" gap is, under the sensor.

    I use imgzeit. Spine Raid Scenery ....
  14. posted this elsewhere, should be here... if I lived in SW part of the country, I'd be sooo broke https://austin.craigslist.org/mcy/d/austin-2004-moto-guzzi-v11-cafe-sport/6914313875.html
  15. I always wondered what a red/grey would look like painted completely with that truly gorgeous candy red. Nice. Now it needs shiny mufflers. You're running low on V11's these days, aren't you Tim?
  16. you don't see the similarities? flyscreen .. Ohlins... dark Cafe Sport- '04 leaves behind the '02 troubles. Much better deal
  17. all Scura goodness, no Scura problems https://austin.craigslist.org/mcy/d/austin-2004-moto-guzzi-v11-cafe-sport/6914313875.html
  18. from encyclopedia of compatible parts, Stainless Steel Bolt Kit page 2,... scroll
  19. you are allowed to post your stuff for sale in classifieds too.
  20. age gots nothing to do with it.... I started out with standards and moved to cruisers early on. lotta years, but no more interest, not since the LM. I got the itch once but passed. Good luck with friend!
  21. If you have a bike (s) you're happy with... take your time. Contrary to my usual M.O., this time I made a list of priorities. #1 weight - no more 500# bikes for me. #2 a twin - power and sound. #3 ergos - standard or upright position. #4 reliability - I already own 2 Guzzi's #5 looks - must have garage appeal. a Hypermotard/Hyperstrada ('13-'18) is in my future, soon as I find the right one. Like I've told my doubting friends, just because it's marketed as a hooligan bike, doesn't mean I have to ride it like that. It's just a big dirt bike... for the street.
  22. Hi Bill, I assume you mean one pair 'high' mount? as in, the ones that come with the Ti muffler kit, which are also the stock hangers from the earlier 1100 Sporti. & "Spot"
