  1. Marchozzi fork seals, $5.50 AliExpress https://www.aliexpress.us/item/3256803348185096.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.order_list_main.17.6af31802c205tR&gatewayAdapt=glo2usa&_randl_shipto=US I currently am using these on my 2003.
  2. I have no problem with it, in fact I encourage it. OEM is by default, a dime a dozen. If someone wants to be creative, why not? It's built for their own preference. Some people follow stick and ball sports when they could follow MotoGP, I'll never understand it, but to each, his own.
  3. @Lucky Phil You mentioned the fix is simple, but I thought it took machining of some sort, no?
  4. Can anyone confirm this fitting our tank? https://www.sd-tec.de/en/moto-guzzi-petcock-m16x1-8mm-50-nibbio-cross-magnum-125-tt-benelli-125-250/item-categoryId-15817-itemId-35105400_.Z-sort-price__asc.html If this does screw into the tank, I now have the adapter to transition the hose to the larger fuel pump hose size.
  5. I know Binder hasn't been fantastic as of late, as KTM hasn't. However qualifying last and finishing so far up the grid was amazing. The announcers hardly mentioned it, so much action at the front. Fun race to watch.
  6. Rode the 25 miles into work this morning. Whew hoo, it handles amazing, so fun! Rode the entire way waiting for the newly paved round-about exit. I timed it perfect and threw it into the turn; tracked so well. What a joy!
  7. Welcome @Ali Fra. Having just acquired mine V11 a few short years ago, I'll mention how I've really fallen for this bike. I hadn't intended to buy this bike, nor was I familiar with it. Having already owned a V7, I was open to the V11 when it was made known to me. Since then, the 1100cc have won me over and is now my default distance bike. I spent time with basic maintenance and then dialing in the suspension, handling, etc. This has been documented on this site should you be interested. My effort has been rewarded with a bike I'm always interested in riding, with confidence. This forum is my daily go to, great community, and so much assistance. Welcome!
  8. All installed, rolling as intended! Thank you. Damn, new tires make for a brand new feeling!
  9. I read this thread today, looking for rear axle order: axle, nut, shim and spacer. Didn't find it. The factory manual schematic is not very good. shim, spacer goes…?

  11. As they are not 100% even, Id say I still have a full turn on one side, and only 3/4 on the other. I can dial it in a wee bit more, what do you suggest?
  12. I'm still waiting for my tires to arrive, but last night I seated each dowel; it was fairly straight forward. I measured each to assure same starting threads, then clockwise rotated each evenly, one side then the other; back and forth, back and forth. When one eventually seated, I backed it off one full turn, and matched the other. As it sits now, one side is one full rotation from seated, and the other is a little less than one full rotation. It seems to me, there is a bit of acceptable variance, and I should be well within. Once I mount the tires, I'll bounce it a bit and see what it looks like, listen for any concerns. Hopefully, that should do it. Thanks for the advice.
  13. It's coming up in two weeks, do not miss this super fun event, one in every major city world-wide! https://www.gentlemansride.com/
  14. Thx for the report! One of these years…
