Pink-faded frame side plates are a very early production issue.  I also spy the finned steel exhaust flanges (early production). So, very curious: what is the build date on your left side headstock tag?

Reviving this old thread.  Its been nearly 18 months since my infamous oiled clutch incident. I know quote a few of you inmates got a laugh from that.    I'm pleased to report the bike is finally back

I had a good outcome to my 'wet clutch' saga.    I was able to plug the small elongated drain hole with a rubber stopper and ran two bottles of mineral spirits through it, shaken not stirred,  and top

Hmm, depending on how much 2 bottles is and where the level in the clutch housing came up too I'm not sure exposing the rear main and gearbox input seal to mineral spirits is totally without risk. Add

Tks very much for the update, your bike looks lovely! 

Wishing you many safe miles and smiles.

Enquiring minds want to know, which lowering peg kit did you get, and please share any thoughts on the installation and use, it's one of the few things I haven't done to mine, that I'm still considering.

Not sure of the brand and I'm pretty sure I bought them from Twisted Throttle.  They took months to arrive.

@gkaan, still very curious about your build date on your early Sport! Was it in 1999?

(I'm likely also going to get you looking at your triple clamp numbers in search of the early steep rake Demon Triples . . .   :grin:  )

I couldn't read the date on the headstock as it appears worn down thru the years.   I'll double check again.  Demons be dammed!  :)

Finally got it up on a lift to check the mfg date.  It's 2/2000

Always so interesting, yet mystifying. My Sport is 3/2000 and has the smooth alloy exhaust flanges and the side plates never faded to pink.

Not that Guzzi ever made changes all at once, at a particular inception date. :mg:

It's as simple as a batch issue docc, same as the crinkle finish cases. Some fall off and some don't.

Ciao
