Re: Current options for narrower bars (shorter rider as well
I noticed that my 1100 Griso has the Same forks as the Aprilia Falco.
Since it sounds like I have the same concerns with riding position that you have I am going to get the low rise sport-touring clip-ons that come stock on...
When I got my 2007 1100 the forks were up in the triple clamps to the fourth line.
I dropped down one more - to the fifth line to quicken up the steering.
On a recent ride there was a fellow Griso pilot that had his forks to the sixth line.
Not exactly an easy mod but I'm glad I did it.
Yes, actually, I do want a steering damper for my Griso.
I also want to dispose of the stock handlebar and put on Aplila Falco sport-touring clip-ons.
Last time I had an "off" on a bike the bars shook out of my hands and I got five fractured ribs out of it.
I need to look at this one more often.
Just did a ride with the apriliaforum loonies. I was the ONLY Guzzi. and my wife asked "How come we don't do this with Guzzi riders??"
How about Next Saturday? Oct 18
I live in Apple Valley, Ca
we could do someplace I have never done like the area around...
this is the wrong direction.
Griso bars should be lowered and narrowed.
I'm hunting around for clip-ons to mount above the triple clamp.
Yes, I did lower my front end one notch down the forks which helped the steering a LOT. :)
my 1100 usually tells me 39.2 mpg up to 42.5 mpg.
This last weekend I was riding around the heavy suburban sprawl near Los Angeles and the instrument told me 26.4 mpg.
I rode 110 miles and gassed up and put in 3 gallons.
my mpg indicator may be a bit off?? :)
I just bought a 2007 Griso that only had 5700 miles on it.
I took it to a mechanic that I once worked with (back in 2000)
and he did a tune up.
I had him check the drive shaft splines for grease.
There was NONE.
Same issue with a Stelvio he had in the shop at the same time.
NO GREASE on the...
First. for the OP.
Get the Griso!!
Second. about the mileage.
I am getting 32-33 mpg when I am forced into the Purgatory of city traffic near Los Angeles.
But when I am at home in the desert in Apple Valley/Victorville I get 39-40 mpg.
I have a lot of long roads with few stops that have...
I just got my Griso a couple of months ago. I installed Dunlop Q3's last week. I like them.
But I don't have enough info to talk about how well they last.
Now that I have good fresh tires I can finsh fiddling with my suspension adjustments.
My rear shock is fairly overwhelmed...
