    New V7/85 65hp for 2021

    If the new V7 has the V85TT motor, l wonder if the front exhaust pies are interchangable? I find the the V85 front pipes a PITA to keep looking presentable.

    Wish l'd seen this before l fitted mine! I was stumped for a while fitting the bevel box bracket, the bolts supplied were too long and the bracket didn't follow the curve. What a pillock! I hadn't put the spacers in! It's on properly now and seems to be doing a good job of keeping the back end a...

    Looking good Peter. Bet it's the only Guzzi at Loomies(and Rykers) Any more mods planned?

    Gutsibits website is listing them too,as well as the PDF of the fitting instructions. Doesn't look like it's going to be the 5 minute job that the B1100 was: the back wheel has to come off!

    Thanks for the heads up Chris, my matt black rear hugger is now on order. Hopefully this should stop the rear shock getting so grubby. Last winter's commute is starting to take its toll on the top.

    CANCELLED UK V85TT Meet & Moto Guzzi Day, NMM, Solihull. Saturday 8th August.

    Sad news Chris. Had a feeling this might happen after the new lockdown in the area. Another by-product of the BLM demos l imagine. I'll spread the word on Facebook for you.

    I'm guessinh that these are the plugs in the crankcase over the crash bar mounts Too late now, but l've got one.

    CANCELLED UK V85TT Meet & Moto Guzzi Day, NMM, Solihull. Saturday 8th August.

    Thanks for the update Chris. I sincerely hope we all pull through this ok and l look forward to meeting up in August. The way things are being cancelled it may be the only event l can get to this year. I'm only on day 2 of isolation and the struggle to stop myself getting the bike out is intense!

    Same here, my local B&Q stocks a selection of sizes of bungs and my local Axminster(tool shop) had screen adjuster knobs, Total expenditure: about £7.

    I too made that leap, the two bikes are like chalk and cheese, the B1100 was heavy and planted on corners, the 85 nimble and flickable. Both bikes can make similar progress in the twisties but in different ways but l find the V85 more fun and rewarding,although l do miss the grunt of the Breva...

    Pannier knobs.

    These work well as screen adjusters on the V85TT. Isotta price: 30 euros, l got a pair from e-bay at a tenth of that price!

    The mudguard and fender extender keeps a bit, but not all,of the muck off the front of the motor.

    Have you tried Motorcyclespares.eu for the mudguard yet? That's where l sourced mine. They didn't have stock at the time of ordering but kept me informed about eta's . As far as the Oxford grips go, l settled on using the Oxford controller, mainly because it was easier but also because it gave...

    Totally agree, the less obvious the better. (Part number for each reflector is ooGo4403751 by the way)

    Aha, that could explain it. The USA version has orange reflectors on the shrouds. Well spotted.

    Uh-oh, l've just had a notification from DHL that my fender will be here in a couple of days. The part number l've ordered is 2B001431 and l can't for the life of me remember how l came across that number. Thank god it was only £40, You never know, it might be ok, looks like it is Australia &...

    UK V85TT Meeting, NMM, Solihull, Saturday 19th October.

    I'll pencil that date in my diary, cheers. I wonder how many more accessories we'll have bought and fitted by then!
