I consider myself as a green horn with my V11, but I have already learned that getting the basic setup to work on your Guzzi is not as easy as I thought it would be. It is a relative investment, unless you are going to commit to do everything yourself. Now speaking of workshops willing to carry out the job; I am fortunate to have several outfits willing to work on a Guzzi V11 2004 in my neck of the woods. I suppose you know, but a lot of motorcycle dealerships don't work on older bikes, including Guzzi official dealers. I do not know where you are located in the USA, but you may want to check with whoever you think could do it, and make sure they would. If you mean "Guzzi specific tooling" there is only 1 and that's the flywheel holding tool which is cheap to buy and needed when torqueing up the flywheel bolts. Maybe a clutch plate alignment tool for the twin platers. Not necessary on a RAM single plate unit. The rest is just std tooling. Even buying a few special tools is a lot cheaper and easier than taking it to a Mechanic. Ciao 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
