True that, on following Kiwi_Roy's advice. :thumbsup:

 

gatorman, If I am reading correctly, you are trying to use a starter for a California on a V11?  Certainly, the flywheels are different. Enough different that those starter are incompatible? IDK. Anyone with this experience?

just tried a test put model clay on the flywheel and installed the starter  the teeth on the starter were bigger than the teeth on the flywheel meaning that the starter gear is to big?

Original starter on a 2001 V11 would be Valeo, not Bosch.

From the parts "fiche" ---> Starter motor Valeo  GU30730711

Check with r3datom9 currently parting out a 2000 Sport in CA, USA. That would be the correct starter for your 2001:

Here is the V11 replacement starter that Tinus89 found in The Netherlands for 60Euro:

"Aantal tanden" = 9 (tooth count)

 

The starter you are using has 8 teeth?

Also, take a look at Gordon's comments on MGCycle for the replacement starter and the "Alternate Starter":

Thanks for weighing in Docc, I have no experience with swapping starters.

Sorry it was me that mentioned Bosch, Gatorman said D6RA2 

It sounds as though Gatorman has the bikes original starter as well though, that should fit

I still don't know for sure he is talking about a VII or something else, we don't have the obligatory picture, LOL

So it turns out to be a VII Bassa at least that's what it says on the side cover, beautuful mile muncher, the EVs had foot boards, I prefer the pegs and love those tubeless wheels, a classic Guzzi for sure.

Edited by Kiwi_Roy
I see the picture

gatorman   i do not have the original starter. it came with the d6ra2. so the person i got the bike from changed the original starter and installed the d6ra2 and never rode the bike again because the d6ra2 is not the right starter for the bike and would not start

Gatorman   hope the picture posts in my gallery

Yeah, man. Looks like a nice pearl white V11 EV?

All my comments were applicable to a 2001 V11 Sport or Rosso Mandello. The EV has a different (5 speed) gearbox and different flywheel from the V11 Sport, so none of my replies are likely going to be helpful.

Or would the starter I linked you to on MGCycle solve your troubles?
