    V85tt engine swap to V7iii

    Hey all. I’m curious about the differences between the above mentioned. I want to know what are the similarities and differences and if I can swap parts directly across the engines. As I understand, they are the same architecture, but the V85tt has more displacement, titanium rods, and different...

    V50/V35 Gear box seeps oil through top vent

    My V50ii (1980) is seeping oil during rides via the oil pressure relief valve. Curious about troubleshooting ideas. From what I have gathered, on these vintage machines the oil pressure relief system is a small spring-loaded device on top of the case, near where the engine case meets the...

    Milky final drive

    Hello all, just drained my oils for a major service today (10,000 + gauze filter). Now, main transmission was clear with only a slight tinge of blue, & yielded 1 litre (was worried about leaks & dirt), but my final drive came out milky! No leaks, but I did have to re-thread the breather, & i've...

    Peg vibration over 4k rpm

    Good evening, Here i am once again posting about a problem. It's been a long time. Now, i'm planning on riding through the snowy mountains late january, & i have an issue - the pegs make my feet tingle at highway speed (100+ km/h) after about half an hour. I start feeling hard vibration during...

    Dancing speedo needle at low speed

    Ladies & gentlemen, Ever since i serviced the cable on my nevada, the speedo needle started bouncing. It was all over the place when i used lithium, & graphite powder isolated it to below 45km/h. Any ideas? It spins smoothly above that, & i know it is the cable as i tested the other parts which...

    Is this engine knocking?

    Hello there! I am trying to sell my beloved Guzzi in order to move overseas more easily. I have just had someone inspect it & was concerned about the noise it makes when in neutral with the clutch released. She tells me it's engine knock, as it sounds like chains, but the noise fades with...

    Crossover Pipe idea

    Hey all, i have seen a few crossover pipes online that replace the canister "expansion chamber", & i've read some posts on this site by people who have installed them, but they cost around $60-$90, & appear to be little more than a piece of stainless steel pipe. With this in mind, i'm thinking...

    simple filter mod idea

    Hey all. Winter has come, & my bike is now surging a little. It was worse, but i got out the vacuum gauges, turned the fuel down about half a turn, & halved the issue to a gentle surge. Now, when servicing the bike, i noticed the filter isn't sitting properly, & the rubber gasket from the old...

    Back in action

    So, about a week ago i did both the tyres & with them off i decided to do the forks as well. In a prevoius post concerning the forks, the left fork was jammed on, thanks to encountering rust that was flaking the chrome off. I have since taken the blinker off & pressed it out using a scissor...

    2002 Nevada - fork plugs?

    I discovered the bolt in the picture after removing my front wheel. There are 2 of these. They are located on top of the axle right on the bottom of the fork reservoir. All i could find online about these bolts were that they are hex socket screws, but nothing about their function. I also found...

    Please, tell me I don't have to do it...

    Hi everyone, So, I have a 2002 Nevada Club (ZGULK) with a busted alternator. Tried to remove it by putting the bike in gear, stomping on the rear brake and twisting on the nut, but it would not bulge. I suppose, I have to lock the flywheel to be able to remove the darn thing. Is there a way to...

    Turn signal relay v65

    Turn signals on my v65 have a second's delay after I turn them on, which is very annoying while driving. For that I bought a new flasher relay. It's not the original one but the mechanic said it's a good one because it can also handle LED lights. So I took the side covers off in search of the...

    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...

    v65 air filter box, breather hose question

    Hello, I have already asked this question in another thread, but probably because it was long and confusing nobody had time to answer it. I got my MG v65 recently and brought the bike to a mechanic who did all the basic things - changed oils, fixed the brakes, etc. What he also did was he...
