Hi I have recently brought a 2000 v11 rosso mandello from a good friend, to cut a long story short I brought the bike in bits to restore/ reassemble but it hadent had the gear box recall done . I tracked down a well known guzzi specialist who was willing to take on the job . I now have the bike reassembled (with the recall being done on the gearbox) but I can’t get it in to 4th gear with out tapping the gear leaver down slightly and then quickly pulling it up .

Hey all! I've been test riding my newly rebuilt and reinstalled engine, making sure everything is good before I get back to riding for fun. The good news is that everything seems fine with the engine. I've come across something interesting with the transmission, however. Riding around at slow speeds, everything is normal. When I am going faster, I have trouble down shifting. I haven't had a problem going from 2nd to 1st, but every gear above that seems to take a second or two before engaging.

I've got a set of Motobits rearsets on my Lemans and find the shifting sloppy. I've gone through the Motobits, cleaned, lubed and tightened the assembly. The problem seems to be the long bolt and sleeve that attaches the Motobits shifter rod to the shift lever on the V11. You have to install the "thru-bolt" slightly loose so not to bind the shift arm but in doing so add a fair amount of play at the motobits rod. Anybody have a fix? I keep thinking of some way to triangulate the long-bolt sleeve assembly to the shift rod would take out the play making the shifts more positive.
