  1. I miss a shift now and again. Usually just poor form on my part. If it does it repeatedly then try the simple stuff first.
  2. http://www.knightdesignllc.com/Products/Motorcycle/Moto-Guzzi/Moto-Guzzi-Motorcycle-Menu.html
  3. I like Todd too. Don’t get the hostility towards him. But this general trend of tail-less modern Manx-style motorcycles leaves me cold. The proportions are all wrong. Some of them are so extreme as to look ridiculous. Look at pipeburn.com for some really bad examples.
  4. The crappy little Do it Best Center on York Boulevard in Los Angeles has an amazing selection of metric fasteners. Wish I had that here...!
  5. I have an f250 7.3 too, got a link to the intake you installed ?
  6. I think you will only introduce a bunch of idle and running problems with near-zero performance gains.
  7. Scud, I just PayPal'd and sent my new address for the 2 springs I reserved. Thanks for doing this...!
  8. PRICE DROP MOTO GUZZI V11 SPORT - $5k A strong running V11, selling because I got a nearly new Stelvio which I use all the time. The Sport sits there and should be used, it’s really a nice driver. I keep the battery conditioned and tires inflated and take it out once in a while. All of the weak points with these models has been addressed, including the NHTSA recall, and the performance mods have been done. It’s Japanese reliable: add gas, turn the key and go. The bike is currently in Atlanta GA, with GA title and registration (formerly it was registered and titled in CA, still has the CA emissions sticker) The below mentioned Omars fairing is still in Los Angeles, so will have to be shipped from there at a later date separately. Otherwise, all extras are here in GA and go with the bike. I am NOT separating the bike from the extras, or the extras from the bike. I can assist with shipping, but buyer is responsible. I have used Shipping Masters, including their title escrow service before, and can recommend them. Or you can fly and ride, and ship the extras using UPS or whatever. The weather hasn’t been cooperating for more photos, so if you are interested I can take more, as soon as it clears…. 2000BY / 2001MY Bought with 4.5k miles Transmission recall done by Pro Italia, CA at 5k, documented Currently 13k miles Single Lambda, open-loop ECU Roper plate installed at 8k Front forks rebuilt with Racetech springs and gold emulators at 10k Rear shock upgraded to Hyperpro 460 (290mm, +/-5mm) at 10k Stucchi crossover Mistral slip ons with DB killers (removable) Re-map by Todd Eagan @ Guzzitech MG Cycle manual petcock Upgraded oil cooler mounts (steel) New Dunlop Road Smart 3’s installed winter 2018, approx 1000 miles on them “Lucky Phil’s” shifter mod installed (still have OEM) “Scud’s re-engineered shift springs” (1 installed, 1 extra) Upgraded relays and relay base, +3 extra relays, OMRON G8HE-1C7T-R-DC12 Casper Electronics breakout harness (to facilitate checking the TPS voltage) Just replaced rocker cover gaskets Just replaced the regulator with new Ducati Energia RR Just replaced the angle drive for the speedo Just replaced the battery (Odyssey 545) COCKPIT EXTRAS: 1/4 Omars DTR fairing with mounting hardware, to fit Woodcraft clip-ons with 2” rise (included) Extra top triple clamp from Cafe Sport for Biltwell handlebar conversion (currently configured) Manic Salamander bar end weights (for both handlebars and Woodcraft clip-ons) OEM clip-ons with OEM below-the-triple clamps and OEM bar-end weights OEM top triple clamp OEM bikini fairing, silver, possibly a Cafe Sport, no mounting hardware, exc. condition, never mounted, very hard to find.

  9. Piaggio should just hire the guy like they did with that dentist....😁
  10. They are hawking as a preventative self-sealing thing. Hmm. Let us know how this goes, Scud. This is something I might use before a big road trip. I would still carry a plug kit and air pump.
  11. AF1 Racing in Texas is a great resource for Guzzi parts (as well as Aprilia) Online parts PDFs help with finding the part number and online ordering is simple and fast. https://www.af1racing.com/store/Scripts/default.asp
  12. I'll sell you my silver Sport. In Atlanta. Pics with Omar's fairing and Woodcraft clip-ons, and with handlebar conversion. I have all the parts to do either, or OEM clip-ons. If interested, PM me your email and Ill send you complete info.
  13. You might try connecting using Guzzidiag (or even TuneECU) to see if the previous owner bricked the ECU. Dont screw around, use these cables: https://www.lonelec.co.uk/Motorbike-OBD-Diagnostic-Cables/Guzzidiag-Melcodiag-Ducatidiag-Hardware You should be able to see what ECU it is, what map it's running etc. If it cant connect, or show some kind of error, you may need a new ECU.
  14. Try Reboot and ask for the "bum stop pad" from the green V11 Sport: http://www.rebootguzzispares.com/spares.php Or Try Sun Coast in Florida, they are also breaking a green V11 Sport: http://www.ebaystores.com/SunCoastCycleSports_Moto-Guzzi_W0QQLHQ5fSellerWithStoreZ1QQLHQ5fTitleDescZ1QQ_fsubZ7592878012QQ_sasiZ1QQ_sidZ6213132QQ_trksidZp4634Q2ec0Q2em322
