  1. Approximately 150. That means 150 V11 owners can ride with more confidence, knowing that the proverbial Achille's Heel has been strengthened.
  2. Ron is all set. I'm kind of surprised too. I thought I'd be living with a bag of springs for a while longer.
  3. Update... I'm down to two springs available for sale. I'm keeping one with Chuck's engineering diagram in case we need to make another batch someday.

    Earlier = Red Frame models Later = Black Frame models starting in 2002
  5. so... I just happened to find a 250-bolt kit for a 701 Husqvarna. It's by Fast Metric - you might contact the company to see if they know how to put a kit together for a V11. https://www.ebay.com/itm/250pc-HUSQVARNA-Bolt-Kit-for-701-ENDURO/152542811910?fits=Make%3AHusqvarna&hash=item2384429706:g:QesAAOSwrhBZDO2V

    A later "document holder" will not fit the earlier tail section. The tail sections are totally different too - even the rear subframes that the tails (and pockets) mounts, too, are different. With the earlier tail, the pocket comes off with the tail section. With the later tail, the pocket stays on the frame and tail has to be slid over the pocket for removal or installation.
  7. ^with friends like you, who needs financial advisors? Good thing I have business travel and a family vacation that take me out of state almost the whole month... so no worries about being tempted.
  8. I'm down to one V11 and a cabinet full of parts.... Kind of regret trading my red LeMans for the Ducati ST3 sometimes... The ST3 is for sale, but I rode it 400 miles yesterday including two passes through the Santa Monica Mountains - and it is a fabulous bike. Love 'em all, can't afford to keep 'em all. I'm enjoying the Stelvio and the Husqvarna 701 the most right now since there are so many dirt-road diaries to be written. (country song reference)
  9. Dave - have you ever considered an Aprilia Tuono? They catch my eye periodically and I think the older ones are reasonably priced. Here's one near me: a 2008 for $2,750 - needs tires and battery. https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/mcy/d/wildomar-2008-aprila-tuono/6894426377.html
  10. ...and my prior Greenie is available from its current owner. This is a great bike with an Ohlins shock. I did a lot of work while I had it, including resealing the gearbox and installing the supplemental transmission brace. https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/mcy/d/murrieta-2001-moto-guzzi-v11-sport/6892875711.html
  11. Here's a red/grey 2002 LeMans with 18,000 miles with a $2,800 asking price. It's within 45 minutes of my house. https://sandiego.craigslist.org/esd/mcy/d/ramona-moto-guzzi/6919262532.html
  12. Knowing the budget is very useful for this thread so we don't tell you things like "go buy a Husqvarna 701 SuperMoto." The ST3 has a unique motor - as I understand it, it's basically the 1000DS motor with a cool 3-valve head. I think it's the only 3 valve head that Ducati has made. Mine's on Craigslist with a $3,600 asking price and no bites... Tell us more about what you want to do with the new addition. Do you want a reliable commuter... something cool and different to tinker with... what?
  13. Scud,

    I talked to Chuck at the Va guzzi Rally this past weekend. He sez you're the guy to see about getting the "final fix" coil spring for the transmission in my V11. What's the procedure?



    1. Scud


      I'll just your mailing address, and $10 per spring plus $5 for shipping to USA.

      Can you use PayPal? If so, you can send as a friend to scudder.tim@gmail.com

      U get my $$?


  14. Congratulations. I love going off road, which I why I bought the Stelvio and why my Ducati ST3 is available. I enjoyed the ST3 very much and am still riding it a bit while waiting for the right buyer. Send me a message if you're interested. I'm a motivated seller. But what should YOU do? Maybe you should take a look at the Ducati Hypermotards. It gives you the upright seating of the "SUV bikes" and similar or better performance than the Monster (since there are a lot of different Monsters). So many great deals on used bikes... so little time.
  15. I might have all that, but will need to check to be sure. I'll be home Saturday. If I do, it's all powdercoated black.
