    Agostini Exhaust Parts

    Hi Todd, Thank you for identifying the Agostini mounting hardware! And it was very nice of you to offer to make a spacer for me. The spacer material is aluminum and the dimensions are OD: 24mm; ID: 8.9mm; and thickness: 10mm. Do you think Agostini has any of these spacers in the US? I...

    Agostini Exhaust Parts

    I reviewed the Moto Guzzi parts diagram for my bike but the drawings of the muffler mounting hardware are not the best and I could not identify them against the items in the above photo. So, I ordered the parts with the hope that they are what I need. In the meantime if anyone has a 2010 V7...

    Agostini Exhaust Parts

    Perhaps these components are not unique to Agostini and instead are stock V7 Cafe components? I bought my bike used with the Agostini mufflers already installed so I don't know if any special fasteners were required. Can anyone confirm that the bits in the aforementioned photo are indeed stock...

    I have Agostini mufflers on my 2010 V7 Cafe and need the mounting hardware shown in the photo. Does anyone know where I can purchase them? Thanks! Jason

    Gear oil change 85W-140

    Do you experience balky shifting in cold weather with that heavy gear lube in the gearbox? Jason

    My version of the oil pump fix - thanks to all for the inspiration!!

    Nice work there Mark! What bike does this modification pertain to? Jason

    Piston Weights

    Perhaps the numbness can be attributed to handlebar grip pressure against the palms, rather than vibration. Jason

    Gear oil change 85W-140

    Reportedly the shop manual for the 2021 V7 850 ES Stone now specifies 75W-140 for the transmission (differential) and gearbox. This is a recent change from 90 weight specified for the gearbox, but I don't know if this change applies to your bike. Jason

    Piston Weights

    Loose motor mounting fasteners can cause "engine vibration" in motorcycles that have their engine rigidly attached to the frame. Hence my previous post about loose motor mounts being a source of vibration. Another possible source of vibration is the drive shaft and/or its interface joint with...

    Piston Weights

    I think a bent crankshaft would result in misaligned pistons and scored cylinder bores. Jason

    Piston Weights

    Well, it sounds like you would have uncovered this by now, but loose motor mounts will cause significant vibration. Jason

    Ok, thanks for the clarification. Jason

    Piston Weights

    Yes, good point. I assume your weight differential is based on the weights of the wrist pins, keepers and rings as well as the piston bodies? Jason

    Piston Weights

    Indeed, that's what I would do. I don't know what the balance factor should be.

    Cafe Racer TV - 850 California.

    Wow, some pretty harsh criticism of some extremely talented work! I have a Cafe Racer and love it for what it is; it's a short trip bike that's fun to ride. For long-distance touring I ride an FLHTK and for off-road adventures I have a KLR. And just for running errands and getting...

    Air cleaner.... Ugggggggggg

    The valve covers on my V7 Cafe are not stock and each one has a breather nipple. So, I attached a hose to each nipple and to a catch-can that I located between the cylinders. At the top of the can there is a breather filter and at the bottom of the can there is a nipple with a hose attached...

    I, too, have installed UNI filter pods and an oil catch can. Jason

    Measuring Throttle Plate Angle

    John, Thank you for the reminder about Mike Haven and about Techno Research software! Yes, the bike runs well and accelerates like nothing I've ever ridden before! I just like to learn as much about it as I can, hence all my seemingly bizarre queries. Jason

    Measuring Throttle Plate Angle

    Scott, Thank you for the additional information. Please note that the orifices created by multi-slide-carburetors must be adjusted just like butterfly carbs in order to "balance" them; I'm not referring to CV carburetors. AMAL carburetors on old British tripples and twins for instance and...
