    Suggested octane for 80's small block motors?

    Hi all, I have a 1980 V50ii with abnormal combustion. The service manual states 100 octane, which I have gathered is based on research octane (RON). By my calculation this is approximately 95 octane based on the AKI (R+M)/2 used here in the States. Currently I'm using "clean" supreme 93 octane...

    Fuel range & pump possible issue - 2007 Norge

    While I was on my French trip - in fact on the very 1st day - I had a fuel incident that has stayed in my mind ever since. Two actually, but I think they're linked. Sorry if this is slightly long winded. I had done about 160 miles and was on some mountain roads, heading nose-down into a...

    Stelvio, fuel congestion

    Hi again. I got a very strange problem with the fuel supply. When the fuel level reaches nearly 1/3 the engine starts to congest, and finally shuts down. Turning the key off and on will make it possible to restart, and run for a mile or so - then same happens. Refueling solves it ! And I can...

    93 California III - Fuel in Oil

    Hello Guzzi Tech, My Cali III is fuel injected and is getting fuel in the oil. When firing the motor, I open the petcock then turn on the fuel pump prior to engaging the starter. When killing the motor, I turn off the fuel pump and close the petcock. I tied a bag around the petcock with it...

    Fuel/Throttle issue

    Hi all, Thought I would ask here before I go on the Guzzi forum and take to dealer. I have a 2014 California 1400 Custom that has just started doing something strange. Sometimes it takes about three goes to start and then when you twist the throttle it doesn't rev. The red triangle with the...

    Red Elbow Fuel Connector Issues

    I have read just about every forum/thread there is about figuring out a replacement for the red elbow that is so notorious for snapping. Several months ago when I first bought the bike (2011 V7 Classic), I broke mine and ended up replacing it with a metal equivalent from Zip-Ty Racing. I then...

    crank but no start Griso 1100 2007

    I'll try to keep this as short as possible. I'm hoping someone else has run into this problem and knows exactly what it is. Quick back story just in case any of it is relevant. I filled the fuel tank last night, rode around a bit, stopped for about 2 hours, and when I turned the bike back on...

    Carb cleanup question (Dellorto PHBH 30)

    Hello, I am planning to clean my Dell'Orto PHBH 30 carbs for the first time. I have never done it before, so my question is, what parts are the most essential to replace before reassembling the carbs? I am not sure what I can expect to find after I open them up, but I think they haven't been...

    Throttle/Fuel issues

    I'm experiencing a weird issue that I'm not too sure of the cause. The issue first happened right after my ECU was flashed at GT. When I left the bike acted like it wasn't getting fuel almost like it was choking. Power was sporadic feeling like it was getting fuel then not then getting fuel...
