  1. Wish I could have kept it , now have a Le Mans without the fairing and a high bar conversion in my old age, I’ve owned and restored 15 V11s in the last 12 years, probably most of them in the UK
  2. Thanks but I’m in the UK and I guess you won’t want to ship overseas
  3. Anyone got a pair of headlight brackets as fitted to the naked sport please
  4. Just listed this on eBay uk , used condition with race ecu and high hangers https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255676357631?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=z2laZvJuS16&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=z2laZvJuS16&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  5. Bagster tank cover wanted uk 07976 849955
  6. Hey Scud I’ve had a few springs from you for bikes here in the uk and I’m in need of another one if you can oblige Steve
  7. I’ve had 2 Ballabios that suffered with vague gear changes, don’t know why it effects this particular model both were fixed by adjusting the ratchet arm inside the cover by turning the eccentric adjustment and centreing the travel and making sure it clears the casing at the end of travel
  8. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Moto-Guzzi-V11-Le-Mans-/325120272351?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0 not mine but belongs to a friend
  9. It’s not a broken spring or it wouldn’t shift at all, more likely the eccentric shaft needs adjustment but also fit Scuds spring while you’re there
  10. Hi Steve

    I came across your post about paddock stand bobbins, and was interested to see that you have done what I was thinking about doing to my 2003 Cafe Sport. I've had to do quite a bit of work on the way to replacing the rear shock absorber, so have the swing arm out, and now ready for re-assembly.

    I'd thought about using/enlarging the hole provided for fixing the hugger/mud-gaurd, but when I look closely I see that this is a bit close to the upper edge of the swing arm. Your pic looks like you've drilled nearer the middle, perhaps closer to the wheel spindle? I'm also wondering if there are any clearance issues on the inside. I'm assuming you used a nut on the inside, or did you find enough metal to tap a thread? 

    Just hoping I can benefit from your experience to avoid mucking it up. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Best wishes





  11. This has been amongst my spares for years, is it the last one in existence?
