'02 V11 Sport Fuelling Set up

Recommended Posts

Alright Guzzisti? :thumbsup:

I think I have a fuelling issue with my V11. :homer:

The bike takes a while to Idle after starting but runs really well when warm.

On a recent trip I was reaching 35mpg and the plugs are BLACK. I don't think I need told this isn't right but my dilemma is who do I take it to to get it set up?

At the moment its running a full Termi system and as I don't know whats been done im ok with a complete overhaul!

I live in NI and we haven't a guzzi dealer locally so would be keen to hear of any reccomendations whether franchised dealer or not?

I would be ok with a ferry ride to Scotland as can make a trip outa it?

Looking forward to your replies :mg:  Gerry.

Sounds like she could be running better for sure. That's 35 miles per Imperial gallon? I thinking that's like 42 mpg-US and far better than I get.


Best to start with a complete tune-up. This FAQ thread will take you through the process:


TPS Set-up and Throttle Balance Tuning


Then, we'll go from there! :luigi:

have you thought about a dyno  set up? just had my bike done, standard trim but had the usual hiccup at low rpm's, bike runs great now, well worth an hours dyno time  :thumbsup:

rossi, Wish I could have come along - nothing like Guzzis making music together! :race: :race:


pilgrim, if you can get the bike to someone with a computer interface, be sure they check/set your CO setting (and compare your rpm to the tachometer indication for future reference).

Cheers for the advice lads, most of the local dealers have a sharp intake of breath through gritted teeth when I mention Guzzi.


Still working through your options and will keep you up to date!
