RentAGuzzi Motorcycle Rentals & Tours – Los Angeles CA
  1. NOTICE: This website will get a major update in the next week or so. I'll post info here as we go. Major reason is that it seems that so many here are UNAWARE of our 600+ product offerings on this site, and how those sales support this site. So the Store and all products will be moving over to our new GTM brand site, with a much nicer and modern interface. All current open orders will be transferring over as well. It is not known yet if you will need a new password for the online Store. This GT website will be stripped down to the Forum and Resources only. That said, it will be kept as is now with the utmost care and monitoring. As always, zero tolerance on personal attacks and off-site links to competing products. Understand that this is a paid for commercial site, not a free social media platform littered with ads to help pay for it. In a few short years we'll reach the 20 year mark of providing free advice and tech tips.

    For ~20 years, Guzzi has shipped the Cal 11 and now the 1400s with the key locking gas cap shown below. If you live with them long enough, you know they tend to be a little frustrating and can end up bending or breaking your ignition key if you don't keep the internals lubed. For those who don't care about locking gas caps, or have ended up replacing the cap with another keyed version, I'm offering the knob below that will replace the key tumbler assy. Cost will be $49.95 in raw aluminum (as shown), or polished for $10 more.

    The gas cap in the picture at the top of thread looks a lot like the one on my Cali 1400. If the GT-Rx knurled knob works on the 1400's I'll place an order for a polished one.

    Just replaced the stupid lock with Todd’s creation.
    A two minute job using only a drift. Problem eliminated.

    Can’t get the time off. Joys of being a government servant.
