    Audace Handlebar thread

    The new bars made quite a difference. Doing tight radius turns with the original bars was a stretch, sense of stability was lessened. The new bars made turning less concerned with body contortions. The risers I made for the new bars, which have more pullback than the originals, had my body...

    Audace LED headlamp

    I just installed a ‘drop in’ LED headlight bulb from Ledperf. The Audace headlight bucket has a flat spot, in the middle, at the back. For no apparent reason on this bike, Moto Guzzi put a convex shape that partially is in that flat spot. That intrusion held the led just mm from letting the...

    Exhausts

    Looks like the Audace is a different beast. The other three models look like they may be interchangeable. But the Audace has a different exhaust hanger bracket and heat shield. That’s all done!

    Exhausts

    I have been trying to look at the parts diagrams. The exhaust numbers are different, but the exhaust pipe support clamps are the same. So the location of the securing bolts are the same. The parts diagrams for the California, Custom, Eldorado and Audace are virtually the same. The rear heat...

    Exhausts

    I’m curious if the exhaust fittings are the same for the California, Custom and Audace. Are these interchangeable?

    1400 Color/Colour Codes

    Thanks, but I didn’t want to duplicate what I have. I like the red gas tank.

    1400 Color/Colour Codes

    This comes up so many times I've lost count. Guzzi does NOT give you any color codes. You can have it scanned/matched locally by a good paint shop. Additionally and on rare occasion, these places might be of help; colorrite.com/ --OR-- touchupdirect.com/touch-up-paint/moto-guzzi/ -- or Google...

    Audace Handlebar thread

    Just today I put the 2017 handle bars on my 2016 Audace. I’m surprised at the difference. My wrists are in much better alignment with my forearms. With the old bars my wrists were cocked at an angle that led me to want to hold my elbows out from my body. This got the alignment of wrist to...

    New Second key

    My question shows I’m not well versed in user codes. But my understanding is it’s a five digit number you can input that lets the bike know the key you have put in is legitimate. I’ve read dealers often have already done this expecting the purchaser to personalize that number later if...

    Many thanks for grabbing that sequence.

    New Second key

    Hello, A little over a month ago I bought a used 2016 Audace with 1500 kilometres. It was a repossessed bike with only one key. Lucky for me I found the code was the last five digits of the vin. I got a couple of Guzzi key blanks from the local dealer. Cutting the blanks was no problem. But...

    LED running lights

    Thanks for your contributions Kiwi Dave. I now have a multimeter and have watched a couple of video introductions as to how to use these. Good for the old brain. I take it from your last comment that voltage divided by amps equals watts. One last question, voltage, amps and watts, how is...

    LED running lights

    I’m not sure if I did this right. I put the multimeter on 10a having read it would measure between that and 200m. I disconnected the hot wire and placed the probes between the separated wire. The meter read .51

    LED running lights

    Kiwi Dave, no I haven’t measured the current. Again, my understanding of electrical matters is limited. What should I be seeing? These are 30w led lights. Today I went for a ride and all is well as far as I can see. If I measure at the small running light, aren’t I just measuring what the...

    LED running lights

    Dave, I did run the second light off off the yellow wire. It is a heavier gauge-18? than the black to the main bulb-24? My rudimentary understanding and guessing said the yellow might carry the extra demand better. I wondered why a lighter gauge for the headlight bulb that has more demand...

    LED running lights

    Thanks for trying to educate me kiwi Dave. The wire colours are all mixed up as far as I can tell. I decided since one of the lights was working with that fog light connector, to just run one light off it. So green was the live and blue the neutral. For the second light I tied into the...

    LED running lights

    I did try each individually and they are nice and steady. I had been just turning the key to the on position. With the lights quivering i thought to start the bike to see if it was different - no change. Like I said I don’t know much about electricity. But it seems to be something about...

    LED running lights

    Thanks for your response. But I do not know how todo that or the solution if I did. It just strikes me as curious/tell tail that when just one light is connected, it works just fine when the key is on. It’s only when the second light is tied in that the flickering occurs.

    LED running lights

    I need some help. I’ve just put a pair of LED running lights on my 2016 Audace. I found what I thought was the fog light plug under the left side cover at the steering head. I also found the GPS plug, green. There are three wires on the fog light plug. A green, which appears to be the hot...
