It had to happen eventually . . .
120bhp Water-Cooled Guzzi 'Sport-Tourer'.
Given their history of using the same Engine/Drivetrain in several models, dare we hope for an updated Stelvio/Griso/Sport?
Most likely an O-Ring on the Cap/Plug part.
Pop the Circlip and take a look.
O-rings can be ordered by size, you'll just need to measure the Outer Diameter (O/D), and the Cross Section (thickness) of the ring.
Double check by measuring the Bore it's in, and the diameter of it's groove.
I would think it just needs a Seal/Gasket replacing.
Before fitting my Thermostat, I would cover the Cooler when the ambient temps dropped below 14°C or so.
I fitted an Oil Temp Sensor and Gauge soon after getting my Stelvio.
I used a thick Neoprene Mouse Mat, tucked behind the Guard I'd made...
Thanks for the info.
As I explained in my original post, the Oil doesn't usually get up to a 'decent' temperature in cooler, wetter Climates.
The Cooling Pump does indeed just feed Oil into the Heads, via the Cooler.
It's not a Pressure Feed like the one for the Main & Big-End Bearings, it...
Sump Spacer holds the Thermostat in the 2V Engines.
Have you done this swap, or seen it done?
I don't think the 2V Sump Spacers would be the same as the 4V version.
Does it have the Cooling Oil Circuit Pump in those for example, and the associated components?
It's so extremely unlikely for both Sensors to fail, in any way, that I'd say it's impossible.
Not even sure they'd cause the issue you had if they were to fail?
I'd guess the burning smell was an electrical short somewhere, whip the Seat. Tank, and Fairings off and check it all over.
If it was...
Geared lower? :eek:
The Stelvio will 'tractor' through pretty much anything in first without needing the Clutch, as long as it's got a decent Map in it, and the Throttle Bodies are correctly balanced and clean*.
If anything, I'd like it geared higher, but then I never go off-road.
Was just trying to think of something spinning under/behind a Plastic Cover.
Again, it's the sudden loss of Power that's puzzling.
The comment "It almost threw me over the bars on a major highway" made me think it was more 'violent' than just closing the Throttle (or flicking the Kill Switch)...
Might be worth checking the Alternator Belt.
If that failed, you'd probably get a burning smell, either from the Belt itself slipping, or from it flailing around against the Plastic Front Cover.
The loss of power is puzzling though, if it is anything to do with the Belt.
I've had a misfire...
As some may know already, the early 'coarse' thread Valve Clearance Adjuster Screws (M6 x 0.75mm pitch) are no longer available.
The later type are M6 x 0.5mm pitch.
I'd heard that KTM use the same type on some of their Engines, so I did a quick search.
Third time lucky in my guessing which...
Glad it's (almost) sorted.
It could be that unplugging the Sensor, and plugging the other one in has cured the fault by scraping the Contacts clean.
Will be interesting to see if the third Sensor works.
I've heard of a few problems with new Sensors, particularly the one on the 2008 model, which...
I suppose I did it more to see if it was feasible, if anyone wanted to have the option of Greasing without disassembly.
As it all comes apart so easily and quickly, it's no real chore to strip it every 12~18months or so.
There's a hell of a lot to be said for such a simple, well designed, and...
Nice job, and great find on the Wilbers, heard nothing but great reports on those.
I picked up an Ohlins for my Stelvio recently, as part of a bundle of parts (along with a 2012 Stelvio, and a 2008 Stelvio 'project' Bike).
Unfortunately, the Reservoir on it fouls on the Cross-Over Pipe I made...
Alternators will usually be Grounded/Earthed via their mountings, but it wouldn't hurt to add a dedicated Lead for it.
Any Ground/Earth relying on mating surface contact can give problems due to corrosion, paint, dirt etc, particularly where there are dissimilar metals involved (Galvanic corrosion).
With most Alternator systems, you won't see much, if any, Voltage rise as the revs increase.
What are you getting at Idle?
Should be around 14.2V, if it's not charging, it'll just show the Battery Voltage of around 12.4 or so.
Anything less than around 13.8V at Idle, and you have a poor...
Are these the two fuses located on their own, just behind the Battery?
They might have been mis-fitted at some point, 30 where the 40 goes, and vice-versa.
Not that that explains why you're getting no charging if either one is removed though.
They've only just updated the design, so I'd expect photos to be available in the site soon enough.
To be fair, it looks pretty much the same on any Bike, it's for functionality, not for 'show'. ;)
This is the one on mine.
I now have their Pillion cover fitted as well, my youngest Daughter...
The Cooling Oil Circuit is completely separate from the Main Pressure Circuit (which supplies the Engine Main and Big-End Bearings).
Separate Pump (but in the same Housing as the Pressure Pump), takes Oil from the Sump, through a basic Strainer, then pumps it out through the Hose on the...
I got a pair of springs made for mine recently (2009).
I stripped the Forks to get the stanchions re-chromed.
Didn't want to be without the Bike while they were being done, so I fitted a set of 2010 Multi-Strada Forks...
