Re-engineering the Shift Spring


Recommended Posts

Thanks Chuck and Scud for all your work on this issue.

I received the springs (2) for my 2004 V11 from Scud (had broken third spring in about 12,000 miles, and had 15mm correct arm from new, some broke at coil and at end). Thanks Scud for effort to get spring to me in time for the long weekend. I  installed about 3 weeks ago, and now have about 1500 miles on the new spring.

Shifts great, everything works as normal. Working to get more miles on these next few weeks.

Hi Scud

Wondering whether you have any springs left?  Been away from the forum for quite a while & have only now caught up with shift spring saga.  I have a 2004 V11 Ballabio.  Spring is OK at present, but no doubt it WILL break sometime.  Thanks to you & others who contributed to developing a solution for this problem.

Cheers.

Yes, I still have some springs. I sent PMs to Joe and Nick. If anybody else needs spring, just send me a message and I'll give you the payment details.

Are you in any of the Guzzi Facebook groups?

An update. I've sent a total of 53 boxes (22 of those outside the USA) - containing 133 springs.

 

I have about 20 springs remaining.
