  2. I'm in Noblesville. I know they are scarce but I was just out of room in my garage and had to part with something.
  3. I have a Becker Technik Central Lifter shop stand for V11 for sale. In a moment of weakness I sold me V11 LeMans a couple of years ago but forgot I had this. It's been used a few times but is in like-new condition. New these are 75 Euros which is about US$88 and that does not include shipping from Germany. http://shop.becker-technik.de/en/motorbike-lifters/24-central-lifter.html To lift the V11 you need 2 18mm sockets which you can pickup just about anywhere. Free shipping for US buyers. $55 via Paypal.
  4. So how did the LeMans look? Did you buy it?
  5. Where in SW Indiana are you? I'm in Noblesville, NE of Indy.
  6. Thanks for the tips Pete!
  7. I am looking at trading a Kawasaki Concours for a 1200 Sport. Wondering what anyone knows about the 1200 Sport. Known issues, common problems, how does it compare to the V11? Stuff like that. Thanks.
  8. Are you sure it's fuel and not oil or oily water? Also are you sure the drop hanging from the tube is the same stuff? Use your nose, it can tell if it's fuel or oil pretty well. My V11 would leak a bit of fuel from the bottom of the throttle bodies because the rubber boots were slightly cracked. After replacing them there is no more leak. I believe the black tube you are talking about is the crankcase breather tube, it's normal to have some slight discharge from this and it's usually oily water. There is also a fuel tank overflow tube that comes down somewhere around there. Generally should not vent fuel unless you're overfilling, have a leaking filler cap, or the cap vent is plugged and pressure is building up in the tank and pushing fuel out the overflow.
  9. My advice is to call either Harpers or MG Cycle. If they don't have it, they can get it. If they can't get it, it's not available. I'm not sure if the 2004 is different than my 2002 but here is the part diagram for the 2002. See if it looks familiar: http://www.harpermoto.com/parts-by-motorcycle/2000-up-moto-guzzi-motorcycles/v-11-le-mans-1100-2002/gear-lever-en-v11-lemans-1100-2002.html
  10. Just about any bearing you buy is going to be made in China. There is nothing inherently wrong with Chinese bearings, some (mostly name brand) are high-quality. Others are junk. Hoping that MG sent you the good kind.
  11. Out of curiosity, what's the differences between a LeMans and a Nero Corsa?
  12. Ok, I'll go out and look at mine and see if I can identify and measure what you're looking for.
  13. I'm not clear on what dimension you need help on. But I'll be glad to go and take a measurement if you could post a bit more detail (perhaps a photo) of what you're needing.
  14. I checked the torque of all the screws and they were all where they were supposed to be. It's probably just a bad application of sealant or something. It's leaking so little that I'm just going to live with it for now. I'm sure that I'll eventually have to get into the shifter mechanism and I can seal it up right then. For now I can live with a drop or two a week which is about the rate it's going.
